Tinsley to the Rescue!

NEXT to fashion, Tinsley Mortimer (left) has two great loves: Bebe and Bella, her two Chihuahuas, ages 8 and 7, respectively.
“My dogs are my children,” she says like she really means it, and Yours Truly believes her. “They are my heart and soul.”

In progress is a fundraiser organized by the Japanese handbag company, which has made a name for itself using young, famous American spokesmodels – BeyoncĂ©, Solange, Paris, Nicky, J.

Ten percent of handbag sales, including those bearing Tinsley’s name, will help NYC Shiba Rescue (http://NYCSHIBARESCUE.ORG/) improve the quality of life of full- and mixed-bred Shibas in metro New York by any means necessary.
While Tinsley does not plan to adopt a Shiba – really small dogs are her thing – she promises that “for my third, I’m definitely going to get a rescue,” despite the travel quota of one dog per human. Under the two-canine system, she and hubby, Topper (Squash to the rumors of a split that marked January.), have things covered. I volunteer to chaperone the third, and Tinsley doesn’t decline my generous offer. There may yet be some first-class frequent flier miles in my future.
Speaking of future, Tinsley informs me that she is NOT pregnant; she’s “fat.” Yes, fat. That bump I encountered when I touched the front of her black lace Alice + Olivia baby doll dress is the fallout from dunkin’ doughnuts at Disney World. Yes, doughnuts. Yes, Disney World. Repeat after me, “Tinsley is NOT …”
