"I have been really enjoying my time in Palm Beach, being with my family and still working from there. I definitely did enjoy my time doing television and that could be something in my future again, but I am still trying to figure it out," the 46-year-old, who is teaming up with Amazon to co-host a fun and festive event called “Amazon’s Pawliday Portraits," which will occur at the Amazon 4-star SoHo store on December 9, exclusively tells OK! about a potential comeback.
She continues, "I just want to be grounded and solid and be happy. I do like TV, it was always fun to do. I did love doing the show, so who knows? Maybe there is other TV in my future!"
Mortimer is used to being in the spotlight, as she previously starred on High Society, which was on the CW, so she is "comfortable" with sharing her life with others.
"If I am supposed to speak in public and stand up on stage and talk, I will freeze and can’t do it, but throw some cameras around me and I am totally fine and I can do whatever," she quips. "I do like it, and there could be other possibilities for me in that arena – whether it’s other things in design or pet rescue, so we will see what it is, but I am definitely open to doing things."
In fact, the blonde beauty teased that she is in talks about another project.
"I definitely do feel comfortable there," she says of reality TV. "I enjoy it, and it’s such a great place to discuss things that are relevant. For me, rescuing and adoption is something that is really important to me. Even now, a lot of things I have been doing has been revolving around them. So, anything I can do to help that, and if there is a larger scale on television, that would be awesome."
In the meantime, the Bravo star — who split from fiancé Scott Kluth earlier this year — would also love to find a husband and start a family.
"What I thought I was getting, it didn’t work out, so that is still very much up there. That is a more focused area than some sort of other career," she says. "I am not saying I am searching for a man or something, but I am saying I would like to have a husband and have a family and so that is a big deal for me, so we will see."
In the meantime, the Virginia native is enjoying being with her dogs, Strawberry and Shortcake, which is why teaming up with Amazon was a no-brainer.
People will be able to visit the free and festive event starting Friday, December 10, to December 12 in New York City (the Amazon 4-star store is on 72 Spring Street) — and there will even be free Holiday Pet Portraits for you to take home and give to your loved ones.
Amazon 4-star and Books stores are also offering this opportunity in Chicago and Washington, D.C., too.
"My little girls mean so much to me, and they are my life," she gushes of her pets. "To be able to do a portrait with Santa Claus — something you can always have that is so adorable and cute — I am so excited to be a part of this and also everybody else on the weekend can come and do this and for free and then also shop with Amazon 4-star and get all these different presents for the holidays."
Additionally, guests will be able to shop around for some stellar items, including the Throw Throw Burrito Card Game by Exploding Kittens and The Casper Pillow, which are from small businesses.
"I don’t even know how to begin, but that is why the 4-star experience is so great that they curated the whole collection and it’s all of these things that consumers are buying and want and love," Mortimer explains. "Everything is all there for you and it’s easy."
The pet portrait experience in NYC will be open to all customers with dogs or cats on Friday, December 10, through Sunday, December 12, from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Availability is limited, and participation will take place on a first-come-first-serve basis.
The Amazon 4-star and Books stores at Westfield Old Orchard in Skokie, IL, and the Amazon 4-star store in Bethesda, MD, will also offer the free pet portraits on Saturday, December 11, to Sunday, December 12, from 11:00 a.m. to 5 p.m.
