Following the news that Carole Radziwill will not be returning to The Real Housewives of New York City after six seasons on the show, Ramona Singer shared an emotional reaction to the update on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen Wednesday night (clip above).
Ramona seemed to be fighting back tears as she opened up about her friend's departure just hours after the news broke. "I don’t want to cry and ruin my makeup. No, no, I’m sad because I love Carole inside and out. I think she’s really warm, special, down-to-earth, truthful, giving, kind, supportive of women, genuine, smart, fabulous. I’m like, wow," Ramona shared on WWHL. "There’s gonna be a void."
Carole confirmed her exit from RHONY in a statement to The Daily Dish on Wednesday. "After six seasons on Bravo’s RHONYC, I have decided to return to what I do best — journalism and producing. I am sure this does not come as a surprise to any of the viewers, all of whom have been supportive, encouraging, and kind. My original curiosity about reality television has waned over the years and I am focusing on TV and writing projects that better suit my more steady temperament," she said. "I have worked with amazing producers, made great friends, and I’m thrilled to leave frenemies behind. I will remember this entire experience with delight, humor, and a veracious accuracy. Next."
We'll still get to see more of Carole with the RHONY crew as this season continues. Check out a preview of an all-new episode coming up on Wednesday at 9/8c, below.
