The Real Housewives of New York fans had been anticipating that Colombian boat ride from hell before Season 10 even began, but it just was so tough to watch. Yes, it was compelling, but the Housewives and the crew were both in severe danger.
The king of Bravo himself- Andy Cohen– is speaking out about that nightmare of a boat cruise and he kind of sort of addresses Bethenny Frankel’s claims that Carole Radziwill was fired from Real Housewives of New York.
Most people think that Andy and everyone else behind these Real Housewives shows just wants every bit of drama possible, but that boat disaster just went way too far.
Andy told Us Weekly, “I wasn’t happy about the boat because it was a horrible thing that happened. A lot of people found it very entertaining. It certainly wasn’t entertaining to me when I heard about it or to the women when they were on it.”
He continued, “I think that it made for dramatic, gripping television but in reality, it was nothing that we would have wanted to happen.” It definitely crossed the line when it comes to the drama on this show.
Another line was crossed very recently. Bethenny broke down that fourth wall when she tweeted that Carole was fired from the show. Instead of actually confirming or denying this claim, Andy just made a vague statement and avoided answering the question: “I never really comment on contracts or hiring or firing but I will say that we’re gonna miss Carole a lot. She was an important part of the show for six years.” Then why not just say what really happened? Ugh.
TELL US- DID YOU THINK THE BOAT FOOTAGE SHOULD HAVE BEEN CUT? OR WAS IT INSTRUMENTAL TO TELLING THE STORY? DID CAROLE GET FIRED OR DID SHE QUIT?
