Carole Radziwill is back in the USA after nearly being arrested by TSA for smuggling undeclared Clarins hand cream through security. The urn “which looked like a bomb” (from the Hindenburg era) bearing her late husband’s ashes – oh that was fine, thanks to Dorinda Medley‘s giant fur coat which happily ensconced the precious cargo. Things you learn from Housewives: always pack giant fur coats when attempting to smuggle goods through TSA.
Heather Thomson, ever the supportive friend to all, is happy to hear that not only was Carole’s trip a success in finding closure, but that Anthony’s return has finally completed the design scheme in Carole’s remodeled apartment. Hi honey, I’m home!
Starting with the scenes of Carole Radziwill retrieving her late husband Anthony’surn, Kristen confesses she was emotional. She shares, “I was crying while watching this. She is not a hugger and very rarely cries. I was happy that she was able to have this time to feel these emotions. Sometimes I think that letting it all out is the best way to move on from grief and pain. Dorinda [Medley] was the perfect partner to share all of this with.”
Reality stars were out and about again this week, attending events and running errands from coast to coast. Above: Former Real Housewives of Miami star Joanna Krupapromotes the adoption of dogs for Polish TV station TVN.
Ramona Singer and Andy Cohen were spotted in NYC leaving the studio after Tuesday night’s episode of WWHL. In another part of NY, Kristen and Josh Taekman attended the All Star Code’s second annual summer benefit in East Hampton. The event raised more than $600,000 for the tech education non-profit.
Kris Jenner, her boyfriend Corey Gamble, and her family went to the Pantages theater together, along with the newly single Kourtney Kardashian. The also-single Scott Disick was in Vegas to make an appearance in Vegas.

Our favorite reality TV stars, like Heather Dubrow and Chelsea Houska, love to show off their adorable kids on Instagram and Twitter. It is not easy to narrow down, but here’s our pick for the cutest family photos from the past week.
“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.”
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.”
Bethenny is delighted about her new apartment, which she invited Carole Radziwill over to see. “I was excited for all of you to see my new apartment, and I can’t wait until you get to see the finished product. I know you will love it.” Bethenny is relieved that her #perfecttiming in leaving the Turks & Caicos trip prevented her from witnessing naked man butt, or its messy aftermath in the house. “After hearing Carole’s side of the stranger-in-the-bed story, I’ve never felt safer standing in the middle of the road.”
One thing I’m really enjoying about this season’s Real Housewives Of New York is that all the ladies alternate bringing the drama. They also take turns playing the mediator or the good friend, which makes for a relationship-driven show about real women. People have many sides to their personalities, and don’t always behave one way, good or bad, something Bravo often fails to demonstrate in its Housewives. Ironically, with EIGHT housewives and their personalities to parse out, Bravo has illustrated the humanity of these women better than it has in many seasons and returned RHONY to the show we all once loved.
Bethenny Frankel is hot in the midst of finalizing renovations in her new apartment, which looks almost identical to the one she forfeited to Jason Hoppy – right down to the Skinnygirl red. I guess if it ain’t broke… (which it is broke). Since Bethenny is no longer homeless, she invites Carole Radziwill over to check out the new pad. Bethenny admits she’s using blowjob currency to get everything completed on time and suspects it may be worth it to pay some extra cash and switch to hand jobs instead. Such is life on the mean streets of NY – a girls gotta do what a girls gotta do to get a roof over her head and a clean place to not eat.
