And sadly, the Real Housewives Of New York stars’ drama has spilled over onto twitter – first with Luann ripping Carole a new one, then apologizing. But now it’s Carole who spends her days – when she should be writing a book – writing nasty tweets about the “Countessa.”
This latest round started when Carole read Luann’s blog, which naturally discussed Carole and Dorinda Medley‘s emotional trip to London. Commenting on the rumors that the Radziwill family is unhappy Carole chose to make Anthony’s death a storyline, Luann hints that it might be true. Which was an uncalled for comment on Luann’s behalf.
Beginning with kind words for the ladies in London, Bethenny reflects, “It was a bittersweet journey for Carole and Dorinda in London. I’m glad they were able to get through it together and be stronger because of it.” But, “While the ladies were away, the crazies certainly did play. I laugh out loud watching Ramona and Sonja recap the trip. Ramona is attempting to convince Sonja that she wasn’t kissing anyone and Sonja is saying “I see,” aka bullsh–. Ramona hides onto a bullsh– lie until it is on its last legs dying and begging for mercy.”
In an open letter to Real Housewives of New York fans via Bravo, Carole Radziwilladdresses why she finally allowed a part of her life she’d always kept quiet to finally be exposed on this week’s episode. In her letter, Carole shares the reasons why she decided to have her trip to London filmed, how she emotionally prepared for the journey, and even her reaction to watching the episode air.
After thanking fans for their support, Carole admits, “I watched tonight’s episode with equal parts fear and gratitude. Fear because, well, it’s the show, and gratitude because Bravo treated my story with grace and honesty. I’ve been on this show for three seasons now and it has been good, bad, and ugly. But the one constant is the integrity I try to bring to each story. I do not chase silly drama for the sake of storylines, though it sometimes seems to find me.”
Last night on Real Housewives Of New York tears were cried, laughs were laughed, and friendships formed in the most unlikely of circumstances. It was nice.
Carole Radziwill and Dorinda Medley have arrived in London and their hotel rooms are enormous. Also, Dorinda has suddenly become “Doris,” but pleasantly she’s swapped aggressive martini-fueled meltdowns for good-natured girl talk and tea.
Carole visits the church temporarily holding Anthony’s ashes. It’s been 15-years since Carole has seen the urn bearing her late husband’s remains and she’s understandably anxious. The church: small, quaint and modern, is quite different from the place where Anthony was originally interned. Carole shares that her late husband was the ultimate practical joker and the traveling urn with Carole receiving the email that it was moved would have made him laugh. That’s a poignant and fun touch.
“So after this week, one thing is clear to me: the sentiment of ‘forgiveness’ is lost on some of us,” begins Dorinda. “To me, it was apparent when I tried to apologize to Heather at Kristen [Taekman’s] Smile Train Denim and Diamonds event.” After praising Kristen’s success in throwing her first ever charity event – “she really presided over the function with the grace and elegance of a queen” – Dorinda launches into why she apologized to Heather in the first place. “I thought it’d be a good time to take Heather aside and try to clear the air, because we were both just getting more and more aggravated by the misunderstandings and clashes we’d had throughout the season and, in those situations, time is NEVER on your side.”
Our favorite reality TV stars cannot get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to social media to share even more of their lives with us. And we would not have it any other way. Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite snapshots and selfies from this week. Enjoy.
Luann de Lesseps will have you know: the Countess isn’t back – she never left! And if anyone is admonishing others for dreadful behavior it shall be her.
Last week’s Real Housewives Of New York had battle lines drawn between Carole Radziwill and Luann over residual Turks and Caicos men, plus Carole’s undefined male sexual partner and companion, Adam. However speaking of undefined sexual partners, Luann has no idea why SHE Is being blamed for Ramona Singer‘s!
Kristen gushes, “Smiletrain event! It’s finally here! My first ever charity event! I am so honored to be a part of such an amazing organization! We raised a bunch of money, thanks to Heather [Thomson]and Yummie!” Kristen goes on to clarify Heather’s involvement in her charity work, which consisted of more than throwing “a few necklaces down on a table” and demanding acknowledgment. “Let me set the record straight! Heather and I had collaborated six weeks before the event to work out the details that her Yummie team had been in contact with Smiletrain about to set up the pop-up store and work out the logistics.”
