By now, most Real Housewives fans have seen the photos of Carole Radziwill with Ghislaine Maxwell, sexual predator Jeffrey Epstein’s ex-girlfriend, and long-time associate, who was finally arrested last week. She’s not the only Real Housewife alum getting dragged into this situation though.
Cosmopolitan UK reported that Dutch journalist Henk Van Ess posted a thread to Twitter with claims that he had been tracking Ghislaine via her IP address. He says that Ghislaine went to a donut shop near Yolanda’s Pennsylvania farm in addition to claiming that Ghislaine is a friend of the Hadid family. He also claimed that he reached out to Yolanda, who barely uses Twitter, for a comment.
Gigi responded, “My mom, clearly from her timeline, almost never uses the twitter app.. this was only brought to her attention by me bc fans were sending me your tweets. She wouldn’t have seen your tweets & can not go back in twitter mentions that far…”

Then, Gigi tweeted, “In your tweet above you claim that you also emailed my mom- but the only email she has from you is from 5:11am EST this morning, so in your tweet, almost 24 hrs ago, claiming that you have contacted her, you had not yet even sent an email.”
Yolanda took a break from her Twitter hiatus to tweet a screenshot of the DM’s between her and the Dutch reporter, which was actually just blank with zero messages, proving that he never direct messaged her. She wrote, “I just checked our DM’s to see where you could have contacted me for a comment before making such terrible accusations, and you’ve never sent me a message- see screenshot. You have, in fact, never asked for an official comment, but here it is:”
Yolanda continued, “I do not know or have ever associated with Ghislaine– the first time I have heard about her or any of this was watching the documentary, like the rest of the world, on Netflix, which became an in depth dinner conversation with my family in which we all discussed how it’s possible that this woman was not already in jail ..?! I have been strictly quarantined with my family, as my daughter is pregnant and is at high risk for catching the virus.”
Yolanda said she ” just learned in the past couple days, via the press- like everyone else, that GM was arrested in New Hampshire, which is multiple states away from where I live.”
She tweeted, “So, I’m not sure how I have been brought into this narrative of yours, but I take these false claims very seriously. Please stop involving me. What that lady did is disturbing and she deserves to be in jail for a long time.”
Ultimately, she insisted, “Like I previously said, I do not know Ghislane. No. She was not at our farm that date or ever.”
