Carole Radziwill left The Real Housewives of New York City after the Season 10 reunion, and at the time, she had experienced a falling-out with former best friend Bethenny Frankel. The tension between the two was definitely felt by everyone at the reunion — including Andy Cohen. In fact, things even escalated to the point where Carole ended up calling Andy "so full of s--t" after he said that both she and Bethenny "bashed each other" this season of RHONY.
Following the tense reunion, Andy did give an update, sharing in 2018 that they had been in touch since the reunion. But in 2020, apparently that's no longer the case: Carole gave a surprising update on her friendship with Andy, which had preceded her time on RHONY, during a recent interview on the Juicy Scoop with Heather McDonald podcast.
"I haven't seen Andy since..." Carole said, trailing off, trying to think of the last time. She then clarified that when she asked if he was afraid of Bethenny at the reunion, she was referring to him as well as the production team. (Clip above.) Nevertheless, it appears their longstanding friendship has fizzled out since Carole left RHONY.
Unsurprisingly, Carole doesn't keep in touch with Bethenny since their friendship ended on Season 10 — and she's still confused about Bethenny's perspective on their friendship ending. Carole actually has some new thoughts about Bethenny's issues with her: "She weaponized my haircut. My haircut became some weapon that I used against her — and my new outfits," she said, adding that she was also surprised that Bethenny didn't donate to her charity when she ran the New York City marathon.
(Carole did previously note, however, that she reached out to Bethenny when her late love Dennis Shields passed away.)
As for Carole's relationship with Tinsley Mortimer, she stands by her comments about the reality of their friendship at the reunion, in which she said, "Bethenny made it seem like we were BFFs, thick as thieves, but we weren't. We never were. We were friends." Carole told McDonald, "I haven't heard from Tinsley since the day we filmed the reunion either," noting that Tinsley was "playing up" their friendship. "Tinsley didn't want to say that what Bethenny was saying wasn't really true... She never has called me since, so I was f--king right!"
So who does Carole keep in touch with? "I see Dorinda [Medley] and I talk to her, and Ramona [Singer], and Heather [Thomson]," she revealed, which is the same answer she gave in 2019. This time, she added that she even had lunch with Ramona the other day. We love when the Housewives form lifelong friendships!
