Former New York Housewife Carole Radziwill Dishes On How Glam Squads Led To Drama

Carole Radziwill hasn’t stopped talking about Real Housewives of New York since she left. After her exit, Carole used every play in the petty ex- handbook to keep the attention. She has spontaneously accused her former co-stars of doing hard drugs while filming. She went after Andy Cohen for taking Bethenny Frankel’s side during their friendship feud. And since we all remember that she had the most unnecessary grudge with Tinsley Mortimer, let’s not forget how she flamed her publicly too.

I don’t really get why Carole is still trying to get into the RHONY mix, but I’m here for all the details. And like a cat to a couch from the 60’s, she just. won’t. quit.

Kristen Taekman Ramona Singer

Someone calling Ramona Singer “rude” isn’t shocking news at this point. Her Real Housewives of New York co-stars have called her out for her behavior so many times. She kicked Gizelle Bryant out of a photo. Margaret Josephs said she wasn’t nice to fans. The list goes on and on. Dolores Catania has made similar comments.

Now, Real Housewives of New York alum Kristen Taekman is claiming that Ramona was so out of hand that they started to run out of locations to film the show.

Ramona Singer Shades Real Housewives of New York Alums Kristen Taekman And Cindy Barshop As “Nobody”

There’s no denying that Ramona Singer is infamous for her lack of a filter on The Real Housewives of New York City. I mean, even Bravo couldn’t resist compiling a package at last season’s reunion of the RHONY OG apologizing (or at least recognizing) over and over that her delivery is almost always crass, rude and downright terrible.

However, that’s never stopped the Singer Stinger before and this time, former RHONY stars Kristen Taekman and Cindy Barshop were on the receiving end of her Ramotional digs.

Kristen Taekman Says Bethenny Frankel Asked Her To Film Real Housewives Of New York Last Season; Weighs In On Bethenny’s Exit From The Show

Even though I like Kristen Taekman, she didn’t exactly make her mark on Real Housewives of New York. Other than facing Ramona Singer’s wrath for getting her hair wet, Kristen was just, well, there. In all honesty, she was just too normal for reality TV.

I thought things might get interesting when her husband Josh Taekman was implicated in the Ashley Madison scandal. In case anyone forgot, Ashley Madison is a dating site for people looking to have affairs. Josh was a member of that website. That news broke right after Kristen wrapped up her final season. I thought it was enough for her to get another season, but she moved on. Or she was fired. I have no idea.

Well, she actually could have returned to the show last season. Apparently, Bethenny Frankel asked Kristen to film. Who had any idea that these two were friends? I didn’t, but I would have loved to see if Kristen could make a bigger impact the second time around. Plus, she would be a way better “Friend of the Housewives” than Barbara Kavovit was. The RHONY ladies just didn’t give Barbara a chance.. and neither did the viewers.

Gizelle Bryant Robyn Dixon Real Housewives Of Potomac

Oh, Ramona! Real Housewives of New York viewers are used to seeing Ramona Singer sometimes behave…well, rudely. It is part of her charm. Look at the way she always insists on getting the best room on RHONY getaways and orders the staff to help her unpack her belongings.

Ramona also has an issue with remembering the names of other Bravo celebrities that she has already met. And word on the street is that Real Housewives of Potomac star Gizelle Bryant has been the most recent victim of Ramona’s selective memory.

Jules Wainstein Says Carole Radziwill “Killed It Her Last Season” On Real Housewives Of New York City Against Bethenny Frankel

It’s safe to say Jules Wainstein and Carole Radziwill were not pals during their time as cast mates on The Real Housewives of New York City.

However, it’s been years since the two butted heads in front of Bravo’s cameras. In a new interview, Jules is finally speaking out about what she thought of Carole while she was a Housewife and, perhaps more surprisingly, how her opinion of Writer Girl changed after leaving the show.

Gizelle Bryant Says Ramona Singer Is “Insane” For Kicking Her Out Of Photo

As much as Bethenny Frankel haters don’t want to admit it, Ramona Singer is entertaining. Even when she’s being rude as hell, she manages to make me laugh in between being offended by her antics.

We all know that Ramona is not the best at remembering people’s names, even people she’s “met” many times, you know like fellow Real Housewives and other Bravolebrities. Mercedes Javid, Dolores Catania, and the notorious Kim D have called her out for her poor attitude in recent months. Clearly, Ramona doesn’t watch any Bravo shows she’s not on. And, apparently, she had no idea that Gizelle Bryant is a Real Housewife too. Even now.

Jill Zarin

Jill Zarin was one of the OG’s on Real Housewives of New York when it debuted in 2008.  She appeared with Ramona Singer, Bethenny Frankel, Luann de Lesseps, and Alex McCord.  Then Jill was fired after season 4 along with Alex and Kelly Bensimon.

Unlike some former Real Housewives who fade away like Jules Wainstein and Kristen Taekman, Jill has tried to regain her apple ever since.  Her role model may be former BFF Bethenny who left and came back. Jill has tried to stay relevant with press interviews and cameo appearances on the show. That included filming at the funeral of husband Bobby Zarin, who died from cancer.
