Carole Radziwill was surprised and shocked to see how the weekend unfolded in the Berkshires. Carole had hoped for a relaxing weekend away, as Dorinda Medley had decided to leave Sonja Morgan at home. However, there was plenty of drama going on between Bethenny Frankel and Luann de Lesseps. Over the past few weeks, Frankel had dealt with drama regarding her business, as Sonja Morgan had tried to create a cheater brand and get a piece of the pie. And when she arrived at the Berkshires, things exploded as Bethenny confronted Luann about her taking credit for the whole Skinnygirl concept.
According to a new Bravo report, Carole Radziwill decided to stay out of the drama with Bethenny and Luann, but she was intrigued by Dorinda’s home. Of course, Radziwill tried to stay out of the drama on this trip and ignored Luann for the most part. She was still very upset with de Lesseps for calling out her relationship with Adam and even calling Radziwill a pedophile.
“I’m speechless. Everything that needed saying was most definitely said — again and again and again. It will probably be on my list of top three most amazing episodes of all time,” Carole Radziwill points out on her blog, adding that it could be something about the home that made the ladies lose their cool.
“There is something about Dorinda’s house…maybe it’s the schizophrenic decor? One room is Victorian, another Mid-evilish, another is Hello Kitty inspired and at the end of the hall hangs a blue plastic marlin circa 1950s Key West,” Carole writes on her blog, adding, “You can argue in one room then sneak through a secret passage to another. It reminds me of the game Clue.”
Of course, Carole hid out in the closet, so she could eavesdrop on Luann’s conversations. Luann was getting some advice from Ramona Singer, who told her that Radziwill was upset about the pedophile comments that she made when Carole started dating Adam. And Carole wanted to listen to the conversation, as the things Luann was saying to her face were very different from the things she was saying behind her back. She hid out in a closet that had been wallpapered, and she called it a sign that someone was really rich. But the whole thing was probably entertaining to Radziwill, who compared all of the rooms in Dorinda’s home to the game of Clue.
“Which of us will be murdered in the Billiard Room? Who of us will get out alive? Will Dorinda ever have a drama-free party? Who spilled their lasagna in the Ballroom? Tune in next week to find out,” Carole Radziwill teases in her blog, calling the Real Housewives of New York episode a game of Clue.
It is definitely interesting that Radziwill can turn this weekend into a fun adventure to see who comes out alive. And as she pointed out in her blog, this episode was one of her favorite episodes of all time. But for the hostess, Dorinda Medley, this getaway was packed with drama, yelling, and complete disrespect.
“I guess that’s what’s bothered me the most about all this: the lack of appreciation, if not respect, for what I consider my REAL home…and sanctuary. On that point, I thought Jules and Carole were the most gracious guests, although I was surprised — and a bit annoyed — that Carole seemed unaware Lu was going to be there,” Medley writes on her own blog for The Real Housewives of New York.
Are you surprised that Carole Radziwill managed to keep the spirit fun even though there was plenty of yelling going on around her during last week’s episode?
