Carole Radziwill

Leah McSweeney

The current season of the Real Housewives of New York has been a doozy, and not exactly in a positive way. The ladies attempt to keep their high-energy vibes amidst the coronavirus pandemic that hit NYC extremely hard. The five apple-holders seem to be on edge, whether it’s family issues or, in Ramona Singer’s case, the calls for accountability amid a racial reckoning and complete political turmoil in the U.S. Sonja Morgan’s drinking a littttle (or a lot) too much and having meltdowns about her past life. Even a new and improved Luann de Lesseps was set off by newbie Eboni K. Williams that turned into a vitriolic feud. And Leah McSweeney is sober again and dealing with a lot of family issues behind the scenes.

It’s no secret that Leah’s had a rough one. She’s receiving a lot of hate, which I can understand, but even Ramona told fans to give her a break. She lost her grandmother while filming in the Hamptons which led to not one, but a few outbursts from Leah. Her half-hearted attempt to defend her friends from Holla Heather Thomson’s slander turned into a whole mess. But I commend her intention — she wasn’t down for the ladies to be buddy-buddy with Mama Heather without knowing the rumors she was spreading about them.

Carole Radziwill Blocks Leah McSweeney On Instagram; Leah Slams Carole For Former Friendship With Ghislaine Maxwell

The Real Housewives of New York brought back a blast from the past this week with Holla Heather Thomson joining the ladies in the Hamptons. However, not everyone was excited for her return, particularly Leah McSweeney. Since her departure from the show, Mama Heather has had quite a lot to say about her former castmates and most of it isn’t positive. She’s accused Luann de Lesseps of doing hard drugs and slammed Sonja Morgan’s facelift, among other things. And Leah wasn’t down for being fake friends with someone who’s been so candidly bashing her former “friends” in the press. Even Ramona Singer, who invited her in the first place, banished Heather to the lower level, so you know it’s bad.

Heather’s RHONY return has been teased since the premiere of Season 13 and it was finally time. And Leah didn’t waste a moment bringing up what Heather said on her podcast. The podcast episode in question featured another alum, Carole Radziwill. Someone who apparently is so over Bravo, but has continued to bash all of her former co-stars, even Andy Cohen, and provide her opinion plenty of places it wasn’t asked for.

Heather Thomson Real Housewives Of New York

SHE IS FINALLY BACK. Heather “Hey Mama” Thomson is making her grand return. With Heather, you either love her or hate her. There is no in between. She has A LOT to own up to after speaking negatively in the press about her former costars. Leah McSweeney will make sure of that. The Real Housewives of New York may have been wild when Heather was previously in the group. However, their antics are on an entirely new level since she exited the show. Good luck!

When we last saw Sonja Morgan, she was in a full alcohol induced spiral. Her obsession with her former family is becoming more unhealthy every season. The attachment is misplaced and is doing her quite a bit of harm. She even shoved her bestie Ramona Singer! Ramona is a lot of things, but she doesn’t deserve someone putting their hands on her. Something has to come to a head with her. Will she ever get on a better path? Let’s hope so.

Below Deck Sailing Yacht Recap: Cross My Anchors, Hope (Not) To Die

Anchors aweigh, JL saves the day! Who knew our boy Jean-Luc Cerza Lanaux had it in him? And who knew Gary King would trust his junior deckhand with such a dangerous, potentially deadly task? (Especially one that could lead to a terrifying watery grave.) On second thought, maybe it makes sense that Gary would put JL in that position rather than risk himself. But either way, the deckhand came through in a crisis. But as always, I’m getting ahead of myself…

At the end of last week’s Below Deck Sailing Yacht, Jean-Luc was not exactly getting a heroic edit. Far from it, in fact. With the charter guests roasting atop an ancient Croatian castle, he couldn’t be bothered to stop eating dinner and bring them a few bottles of water. Instead, Gary had to rush down from the highest tower and do JL’s job for him. Before the deckhand could even find the cooler bag, Gary had made it to Parsifal and back, bragging to Daisy Kelliher that he knew he’d do the job quicker than JL.

Real Housewives Of New York Recap: On An Island

Even though Carole Radziwill’s time on the Real Housewives of New York is long gone, she never shies away from a moment to share her opinion. But hey, she’s a writer girl, it’s in her blood. She’s flamed her ex-BFF Bethenny Frankel, shaded Tinsley Mortimer and said everyone on the cast was fake besides Dorinda Medley. Oh, and accused them of doing hard drugs on the show. For someone who is over being on Bravo, she sure talks about reality TV a lot.

And yesterday Carole decided to insert herself into some reality TV news that literally has absolutely nothing to do with her. Bachelor alum Colton Underwood came out as gay this week after appearing on the ABC dating show. He said he came to terms with his sexuality earlier this year and has been processing it.

Carole Radziwill Says That Her Friendship With Bethenny Frankel Was “Transactional” And Bethenny Ended It Because “She Decided It Was A Good Business Decision”

The friendship between Real Housewives of New York stars Carole Radziwill and Bethenny Frankel was unexpected, and quite interesting. It was a lovefest back in 2016, with Bethenny declaring that she would exit RHONY before she would break-up with Carole. Bethenny missed the mark with that prediction.

During Season 10, their friendship imploded, leaving both women bitter. The RHONY reunion was a nail-biter, with both Carole and Bethenny fighting over who slammed who on the show. In one memorable moment, Carole screamed at host Andy Cohen, “Shut up, Andy. You’re so full of sh*t!” Later, Carole claimed that Andy was Team Bethenny during the ladies’ disputes.

Bethenny Frankel Watch What Happens Live

Former Real Housewives of New York star Bethenny Frankel sounds like she isn’t planning on returning to the franchise for a third time. In August of 2019, she announced that she was leaving RHONY. And Bethenny made it clear that she didn’t enjoy filming the show.

Then we have Real Housewives of Salt Lake City star Lisa Barlow. Like Bethenny, Lisa is a strong woman and entrepreneur. Lisa said that the most common misunderstanding about her is that “I’m a bitch.” She clarified, “I’m not a bitch. I have a backbone.”

Carole Radziwell Slams Bethenny Frankel As A “Narcissist”

I was always fascinated by the fun and breezy friendship between Bethenny Frankel and Carole Radziwill on Real Housewives of New York. When it first bloomed back in 2016, Bethenny declared, “Carole’s amazing. I would leave the show before I would leave Carole.” Ah…good times.

Many RHONY viewers were perplexed when the friendship between the duo started to fall apart during Season 10. Was it because Bethenny had some drama with Carole’s then-boyfriend, Adam Kenworthy? Bethenny certainly seemed ticked off by Carole’s new friendship with co-star Tinsley Mortimer. Or was Carole just over Bethenny?
