She’s just like Us! Tinsley Mortimer revealed 25 fun facts that even the most hardcore Real Housewives of New York City fans don’t know — and they’re (mostly) shockingly relatable.

Mortimer, 46, exclusively told Us Weekly about her favorites, including her favorite snacks and preferred deodorant, which might already be in your house. The Southern Charm author doesn’t hold back — even revealing what kind of underwear she prefers.

Like most of America, the Bravo alum tuned in for HBO Max’s Friends reunion in May. Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry and David Schwimmer all returned for the special to share special memories and shed some tears. They weren’t the only ones in need of a tissue. Mortimer reveals her emotional reaction to the TV special below.

The Virginia native’s funnier revelations are her quirky shoe preferences. Mortimer claims she will “actually feel angry” when she sees people wearing a common summer style, but she also has requirements for her high heels.

Of course, Mortimer isn’t quite the average dog owner. She feeds her dogs three times a day, and they might eat better than we do.
