Carole Radziwill On Husband’s Death: ‘It Was A Story I Was Reluctant To Tell’

Carole Radziwill has been closing some chapters on this season of The Real Housewives of New York. Before Carole started filming this season, she got an email from a church overseas. The church where Radziwill buried her husband had been sold, and she would need to come pick up her husband’s urn. This was a chapter Carole thought she had closed before, but now she is being forced to reopen it.

Sure, Carole Radziwill could have done this away from the Bravo cameras. But she decided to share this journey with viewers, because Radziwill hadn’t shared too much about her life with her late husband on the show. And Radziwill wasn’t alone. Dorinda Medley is also a widow, and she also had a past in London, so the ladies went together.

According to a new Reality Wives report, Carole Radziwill is speaking out about her experience on the show, traveling to London to pick up her husband’s urn. Radziwill penned an open letter to her fans to share her feelings about the trip.

“What you see on the show is what is happening in my life. It’s as real as reality can be. The London story is no different, except that it was a story I was reluctant to tell for many years. And one I almost didn’t tell,” Carole Radziwill reveals in her open letter to Real Housewives of New York viewers.

“It took me some time to allow Bravo to follow that story. Initially, I said no. I couldn’t imagine talking about this part of my life so publicly. I called Father Damien in London and we had a long talk. I told him how pleased I was to hear from him and how excited I was to bring the urn back home. I told him what had transpired in my life during the past 15 years — the ups, the mediums, the downs, and the missing. I told him about the heartbreak and joy. I also told him about the television show. He was kind and soft-spoken. He heard me and he advised,” Carole explains.

Radziwill admitted on the show that she isn’t a person who cries much. But on last night’s episode of The Real Housewives of New York, Carole broke down while reflecting on her journey to revisit her life with her late husband.

“Sure, I cried a bit and that is always embarrassing to me to watch, but in the end, as I watched it, I felt proud. Proud that I had the courage to talk about my husband. Proud, again, of the life we built together and proud of the life I have built since,” Radziwill reveals, adding, “I’ve loved and lost. And like everyone else who has done that, I’m more hesitant now. Our hearts are not as resilient as we pretend them to be. It’s one thing to post uplifting inspirational words by day, it’s another thing to try to sleep with the scars at night.”

It was a touching moment when Carole had a moment alone with her late husband. According to the Inquisitr, Carole Radziwill has denied having any issues with her mother-in-law in regards to her portrayal on the show. It sounds like she has everyone’s support.
