The drama all started when one fan took to Twitter to share her thoughts upon rewatching Season 10 of RHONY. “I’m seeing Bethenny in a whole new light,” the viewer wrote. “Just because @CaroleRadziwill got a haircut & is friends with Tinsley doesn’t mean she’s ‘too cool.’ Bethenny was feeling threatened & projecting.”
Carole always has an eye on social media, so naturally, she saw the tweet and decided to chime in. “The Haircut!,” she tweeted, addressing the short, blonde bob she rocked during Season 10. “Who knew the haircut would send Bethenny into a tailspin ending with sticking her head in a freezer in Cartagena…She was so mean to everyone else, figured she could handle a new look.”

Way back in the Season 10 premiere, Writer Girl foreshadowed her BFF’s constant criticisms of her appearance in her always-epic Bravo blog. (Don’t you wish Bravo still made the Housewives write blog posts every episode? I miss it.) “Speaking of running, there is a running theme this season about my clothes,” she wrote at the time. “Bethenny, it seems, is oddly fixated on my outfits. It starts right here in episode one and doesn’t let up until the finale. Wait for it.”
Carole also couldn’t resist further dismantling her on-camera friendship with Tinsley, writing, “Of course there was also the Bravo invented ride or die friendship w/ Tinsley.” In retrospect, the pair (whom I loved together) started to unravel at the Season 10 reunion.

On the couches, Carole insisted she and Tinsley “didn’t see each other that much” outside of filming and accused Bethenny of perpetuating the idea that they were “thick as thieves” BFFs for a storyline.
Which was odd, considering Carole did introduce Tinsley to her now-fiancé…The whole awkward exchange led to poor Tinsley standing up and demanding “What the hell is wrong with me?” and even Andy Cohen asking, “Why is being close to Tinsley such a crime?”
Since quitting the show, Carole has continued to speak out time and again about her relationship with the socialite, insisting they were never really friends. At various other times, the RHONY alum has also claimed that she only filmed with Tinsley because no one else wanted to, and that producers arranged for them to room together on cast trips rather than with Carole staying with Bethenny.
