Slowly, The Real Housewives of New York City viewers are seeing the shifting dynamic between Carole Radziwill and Bethenny Frankel, who don't appear to be quite as close as they used to be. And it's certainly a turn of events that Tinsley Mortimer couldn't have guessed would transpire.
"I adore Carole. Obviously she's been such a great friend to me [and] also her taking me under her wing in a sense and wanting to introduce me to Scott — I'm super appreciative of [that]. But my friendship with Carole is completely separate then anything that's going on with her other friendships," Tinsley told The Daily Dish this week. "And, for me, I've only ever known Carole and Bethenny to be super close and they were so tight. And so it's been hard to see their relationship fall apart a bit. But my relationship is totally separate from that. There's nothing that we have to do with the other."
Both Bethenny and Carole have offered up their separate takes on where things stand between the two of them currently, with Carole addressing their relationship on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen this week (clip above). And whatever happens, Tinsley hopes the two ladies can make amends. "But I really hope that they work things out and I hope they become close friends again," she said. "There's room for lots of friends and there's room for everybody and my being friends with Carole should never jeopardize any other friendship. I hope for the best for them."
