PALM BEACH — Donald Trump‘s not the only one rewarded for bad behavior.

Socialite Tinsley Mortimer, who has yet to be cleared of a misdemeanor trespassing charge brought in April when cops found acting cray-cray on the property of her boyfriend in Palm Beach, just got a gig on the new season of The Real Housewives of New York City, according to news reports.

As if it was needed, the move by cable TV’s Bravo proves that, once again, crime pays in America.

The network has been keeping the new cast under wraps, but bystanders in the Manhattan nightscape saw Mortimer, 41, filming an episode with returning stars Romona Singer and Sonja Morgan last week at the restaurant/nightclub Beautique.

Mortimer, meanwhile, has a Dec. 30 date with a Palm Beach County judge to decide whether she successfully completed her pre-trial intervention.

The train-wreck socialite, who claims Thomas Jefferson as a direct ancestor, was arrested in the tony billionaires’ town of Palm Beach April 16 after police found her crying hysterically on the front yard of the house of much younger sugar heir Alexander “Nico” Fanjul.

The former Dior brand ambassador and fashionista called police to help her retrieve her purse inside the residence, where Nico was allegedly holed up with a new girlfriend.

Shortly after cops arrived, they charged Mortimer with the misdemeanor because, according to the police report, she had been warned to stay away from the property in October.

Palm Beach County Judge Marni Bryson, according to records, approved an agreement between Mortimer and prosecutors in July, a deal to keep the new Housewife out of jail.

Mortimer promised to have no contact with her 30-year-old Nico Fanjul by any means directly or indirectly.

She was also banned from visiting his home at 211 El Dorado Drive in Palm Beach as well as the $16 million-home of his parents, sugar baron Alexander Fanjul and his wife Nicole at 110 Chateaux Drive.

Until Dec. 30, Mortimer cannot be arrested on new charges, get cited for a traffic infraction or be convicted of any new crime.

If she fails to abide with the conditions, according to the document, the office of the Palm Beach County State Attorney will continue its prosecution of the trespassing case, which could send Mortimer to the county jail for up to a year. If she’s a good girl, the prosecution ends.

Mortimer moved to a downtown West Palm Beach condo in 2012, three years after her marriage to Robert “Topper” Mortimer, her high school sweetheart who just happened to be the heir to Standard Oil, fell apart.

At one point, Tinsley was the “it girl” of fashion.

Dior made her a brand ambassador they let her launch her own lip gloss, “Tinsley Pink.”

She had her own reality series on CW called High Society.
