The gals have a few laughs at Mortimer, who boasts, “shopping is my job!” while promoting her boyfriend Scott Kluth’s brand
But behind the scenes the elevator shoot wasn’t all fun and games, Radar has learned.
After surviving the boat trip from hell, the trio had another scare when they were left hanging 50 floors high above Manhattan while filming the commercial.
According to an on-set spy, the Housewives were screaming for help after they were trapped in an elevator on the 50th floor during the shoot alongside Kluth, Carole’s boy toy Adam Kenworthy, and Dorinda’s longtime love John Mahdessian.
“They were having a great time filming scenes for the CouponCabin commercial in the elevator inside Tinsley and Scott’s Park Avenue Penthouse,” said the source. “The doors were held open for too long and suddenly shut – and wouldn’t open back up and the girls panicked, and started screaming for help.”
Luckily, the ordeal didn’t last long.
According to another source “a safety mechanism” was triggered and caused the elevator to shut off.
“They were only trapped for less than a minute, and never in any danger."
“They were advised that holding the doors open would trigger a safety mechanism, and cause a brief delay before the doors re-opened. They were just joking and being overly dramatic.”
“They had an amazing time, laughing and joking around during the entire shoot.”
In fact, the group wanted to continue the good times, so they jetted off to Dubai to celebrate the wrap: “Scott, John and Adam really hit it off,” said the source. “And Tinsley, Dorinda, and Carole have grown very close. They talk every day.”
Radar obtained exclusive footage of the commercial before its debut on Bravo next week, including the elevator scene.
