Carole Radzwill For Elle Magazine

Carole Radziwill wants you to know the secret to staying young isn’t dating much-younger men (or chasing them), but living life to the fullest and not watching reality TV. Oh and she would never Master Cleanse

Carole maintains that she’s an unlikely cast member for Real Housewives Of New York because she avoids watching reality TV like the plague. “I don’t watch reality television,” Carole insists. “If I do watch anything like Housewives, it’s only to see if they have better lighting than us, or editing. Atlanta and Beverly Hills were off the charts.”


Another tip from Carole is be the prey, not the huntress – hear that cougars of RHONY! “I’m not a girl who has ever chased men. I like them, but I don’t get myself worked up for them, and I don’t get validation from them,” comments Carole. “I don’t think of them as a prize. Usually men in my life have been men who are like Adam. He knows what he wants a PR stunt relationship to get publicity for his chef career? and what he likes. There’s no gaming or chasing.”

“I guess I’m just old fashioned. I think men are biologically hardwired to chase, and if you don’t allow them to do that, subconsciously, they feel like there’s something not right about the relationship,” clarifies Carole. “But you have to as a woman give a man an inkling that you are interested.”

Carole also does nothing to maintain her slim physique –  she was just born that way and blessed by God. “I like to say that God gave me a good metabolism and a nice ass, but again, there’s a whole bunch of other issues, so it all evens out,” she quips. “I’m not starving myself. My body doesn’t change too much. I’m the same exact weight as I was in eleventh grade of high school. Ten cheeseburgers or a salad, I stay the same weight. I was never into going to gyms. I just don’t like the culture.” 

“I don’t have a relationship with food. I pretty much eat whatever is in front of me,” adds future cookbook author Carole. “But I hate all that skinny shaming that goes on: ‘You’re too skinny, eat a burger!’. You would never say that to someone who is ten pounds overweight ever.”

Proving that she’s not hardwired to be a Housewife either, Carole “doesn’t have a relationship” with the booze. “I know some people that I work with that are like, ‘Let’s get a cocktail or rosé.’ I’ll just have a dirty martini,” she tells Elle Magazine

One thing Carole does focus on is skincare  – which she hides from her post-adolescent manchild boyfriend. Old ladies are scary! “Adam stays over a lot and I’m thinking, ‘You really have to stay home because I need to do my skincare!’ It’s not really hot to have the [LED] red light on you and be like, ‘Don’t talk to me. I’m red-lighting.’ I do it when he’s not here. I like to lie in bed and binge watch Sex And The City television with my LightStim.”
