Carole Radziwill has become good friends with Bethenny Frankel while filming The Real Housewives of New York, and she understands why Bethenny is upset with John Mahdessian and Dorinda Medley after the bra party.
Carole herself knows what it’s like to fight with a co-star, as she hasn’t really been on good terms with Luann de Lesseps after last year’s drama over Adam. Carole and Adam fell in love, and Luann wasn’t happy about it. Radziwill went on Watch What Happens Live last night, and she decided to dish her thoughts about Dorinda’s relationship.
According to a new Bravo report, Carole Radziwill is now revealing what she knows about Dorinda’s relationship with John. During last week’s episode of The Real Housewives of New York, she hinted that she was very unhappy with Mahdessian and didn’t really know where their future would take them. Now, Radziwill is giving an update on their relationship, as they are still together.
“You’ll have to ask her, but they got together at a time in her life where she felt like she was not having a good time, and it was difficult,” Carole told a caller on Watch What Happens Live after being asked about Dorinda’s relationship with John.
It sounds like Carole does defend Dorinda’s decision to stay with John because they possibly met at a bad time during her life. Medley has revealed that she has lost her husband, Richard, and has been a widow before.
“And he made … she’s not told me this, but I assume that he helped her in a hard time in her life. I think sometimes they are kinda well-suited for each other honestly. I don’t get into their relationship. I didn’t like the things that he said about Bethenny and the things that he said about Ramona. But, in terms of his relationship with Dorinda, if she wants to be with him then she should be. And she clearly loves him,” Carole Radziwill explains to the caller and viewers of Watch What Happens Live.
Andy Cohen also chimed in, adding that he strongly believes that they are in love. Dorinda has revealed that she was embarrassed at the way John acted, but it wasn’t enough for her to break off their romance. And rather than give him the boot, Medley may have changed her mind about her co-stars. While Carole Radziwill didn’t go into further detail about the romance, her co-star does reveal that she’s furious with her co-stars because of the way they acted around John. She feels the pressure to get him accepted by her Real Housewives of New York co-stars.
“You know what? They’re giving John a hard time again,” Dorinda tells her Real Housewives of New York co-stars on next week’s episode, adding, “I’ve chosen him. I love him. If you want to be my friend, you need to respect that. He adores me. I think people like to speculate and say things that are mean. I think people must be jealous cause why are you concerned about my sex life, my romantic life, my anything life.”
While Carole Radziwill visited Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live, Dorinda was on vacation and possibly with Mahdessian. She revealed that she wouldn’t be live tweeting during the episode and therefore didn’t want to talk about what happened on The Real Housewives of New York. It will be interesting to read her blog, should she write one for this week’s episode.
What do you think of Carole Radziwill’s comments about her co-star’s relationship? Are you surprised that Dorinda is so protective over Mahdessian?
