Carole Radziwill: I Definitely Wasn't 'Cool Carole' in High School

The RHONY newbie reflects on her humble roots and her newfound reality fame.

Carole Radziwill

Life wasn't always elite parties and reality camera crews for Carole Radziwill. In fact, she wasn't even one of the cool kids in high school, and she still remembers it.

"I was definitely not one of the cool girls in Suffern High School. Allison Cherry was," Radziwill says in an interview with Gannett. She continues about the mystery popular girl, adding that "I used to think she was so gorgeous and so effortlessly cool. I thought if only I were Allison Cherry, my life would be perfect. And Allison Cherry, believe me, never knew I existed in high school."

But that was decades ago and Carole has left Suffern High School behind for a successful life of journalism, book writing and now, reality TV -- but she was hesitant at first to join the Real Housewives of New York City cast. She says that when she was approached by Andy Cohen to join the show, she initially "laughed and thought he was kidding," but after some convincing, she decided to give it a go because she thought in the past the show "wasn’t really a well-rounded representation of New York — at least, not the New York that I know and love."

And while her friend and especially her skeptical journalist colleagues thought she was nuts for going the reality route, Carole said she thought of it a bit differently: "I approached (filming the show) a little differently … for me, I always felt I was in a comedy. And I think some of the other women think they’re in a drama."
