Carole Radziwill hung out with Bethenny Frankel during yesterday’s episode of The Real Housewives of New York in hopes of getting to know Frankel. Carole and Heather Thomson are close friends, but Heather and Bethenny have not bonded well. The two have been throwing digs at one another, and Thomson can’t really talk to Bethenny without feeling attacked.
However, The Real Housewives of New York star Carole Radziwill wanted to give Bethenny a chance, and the two went shopping together. It didn’t take long for Bethenny to open up to Carole, and within minutes, Frankel was sharing her frustrations in regards to her divorce and custody. And Radziwill was shocked!
According to a new Bravo report, Carole Radziwill is now revealing how she felt when Bethenny Frankel broke down while furniture shopping. Radziwill knew that Frankel was going through a painful time, but she didn’t realize that Frankel would break down in the middle of the furniture store. Now, Radziwill is opening up about the experience.
“Oh wow. I wasn’t expecting that. I knew she had child-care issues that precluded her from attending some of the events and dinners. I imagine it’s difficult to juggle work and play and family, especially given a protracted divorce. I felt terrible for her, but I also sensed that she was not the type of woman who wanted to be coddled. I’m not someone who can hug it out either. Hugging makes me cry more. My only thought was to try to get her to laugh. Laughter cures everything. That is why I made fun of her for not wanting to blow her nose in the two dollar napkin. Once she started to laugh she was fine. It was a moment. We all have them. I’ll have one soon too,” Carole Radziwill has revealed.
Of course, the drama that Carole is going through with Adam and Luann de Lesseps is nowhere near the drama that Frankel is going through with her ex-husband. The two share custody of their daughter, Bryn, and they are fighting over the millions of dollars that Frankel earned during the marriage. It is something that Carole Radziwill knew about, but she didn’t realize it was such a big issue for her co-star.
According to the Inquisitr, Radziwill may return to film more scenes for The Real Housewives of New York because of the current drama with Luann de Lesseps. Luann is upset with Carole for dating her chef, and apparently, things will only get more heated between them. But in real life, a Twitter feud has started between Carole and her co-star, since they are reliving the drama.
