Many story arcs on the housewives franchise are touching and personal, but it’s rare to see such a vulnerable side of Real Housewives of New York’sCarole Radziwell. She tends to offer comic relief and snarky commentary regarding her often dramatic co-stars, but this season viewers have seen an entirely different side of Carole’s life. We followed her to London to retrieve the ashes of her late husband Anthony who passed away from cancer a few short years into their marriage. While there have been accusations that Carole is exploiting her her husband’s death for a story line, she explains why she felt compelled to share something so intimate with fans.
LuAnn DeLesseps continues to stir the pot, claiming that Carole angered her mother-in-law by bringing her son’s tragedy back into the public eye on a reality show, but newbie Dorinda Medley feels differently. Having also lost her husband and lived in London, Dorinda feels differently about Carole’s journey and her decision to accompany her friend to London. In her Bravo blog, Dorinda begins, “As I wrote last week, I was quite hesitant about going on this trip. I had so much anxiety about returning to London. I lived there for almost 10 years, and it still holds a very special place in my heart.”

See below for a note from Travis on how the game will be scored:
While one former Housewife is downsizing, another is overtaking the OC with her spread of rare marble. Yes, it’s Jeana Keough vs. Heather Dubrow luxury mansion-off!
Jeana, one of the original Real Housewives Of Orange County stars, resided in the exclusive gated community of Coto de Caza, which once dominated the show. Jeana has faithfully remained Vicki Gunvalson‘s next door neighbor, but recently she revealed that she’s renting out the mansion that was once so prominently a part of RHOC! “I’ve decided to lease the house and see where this new adventure takes me!” the excited former reality star gushes.
