Carole Radziwill has accomplished many things in her life. Not only is she related to real life royalty but her success has translated to a lot of wealth. In fact, despite starting out as a journalist, the Real Housewives of New York star has amassed a fortune over the years. How did she get so rich?
According to Bustle, Radziwill is now worth some $50 million. Part of her wealth is due to her relationship with royalty and part because of her own business ventures. In the past few years, Radziwill has made a name for herself in the writing business and has sold thousands of books.
Two of Radziwill’s most successful books are What Remains: A Memoir of Fate, Friendship and Love and The Widow’s Guide to Sex and Dating. Both of her works were inspired by her husband’s battle with cancer and death back in 2005. Radziwill’s dating book sold 50,000 during its first year while her memoir appeared on the New York Times Bestseller list.
Speaking of the Real Housewives of New York, the hit series has officially returned for a new season, and Radziwill is taking full advantage of her time in the spotlight. According to the Daily Mail, Radziwill opened up about her new relationship with Adam Kenworthy and admitted that their age difference is on her radar.
“It’s a great relationship – I’m really happy,” Radziwill explained. “We do love each other. He wants kids and different things in life and he should have them – and I hope he gets everything he wants.”
Carole Radziwill went on to state that she only has around “five good summers left” while Kenworthy has a lot more to his future. When asked to clarify what she meant, Radziwill explained how she views her time differently now that she’s older.
Unfortunately, not all of Radziwill’s co-stars support her relationship with Kenworthy. Romper recently reported that Countess LuAnn de Lesseps does not approve of Radziwill’s boyfriend, especially considering how he used to date de Lesseps’ niece. Interestingly, Radziwill first met Kenworthy during a gathering at de Lesseps’ home.
“All that s**t she said about me and Adam? She called me every single nasty name on social media and Twitter and I think she still continues to talk behind my back. I think she should worry more about who she’s sleeping with than about who I’m sleeping with.”
Despite the drama with de Lesseps, Radziwill and Kenworthy have remained close and recently celebrated being together for 18 months. In fact, the two recently purchased a new puppy and have shown no signs of a break-up.
Fans can watch the drama unfold when the Real Housewives of New York continues Wednesday nights on Bravo.
