Bethenny Frankel has been on The Real Housewives of New York for several years, and she knows that friendships change all the time on the show. While she used to be cordial with Luann de Lesseps, their friendship hit a road block with the Thomas D’Agostino cheating scandal. Bethenny also used to be close friends with Jill Zarin, but their friendship changed when Jill felt that she wasn’t a top priority in her life. Bethenny was working hard on her Skinnygirl business, but Jill wanted all of her attention, including bringing her on vacation and checking in constantly during Bobby’s first cancer surgery.
According to a new Bravo report, Bethenny Frankel is now giving an update on her friendship with Carole Radziwill. The two bonded right away when they started filming the show, and it didn’t take long for the other girls to notice just how much time they were spending together. But it sounds like Frankel doesn’t care about what the other ladies think, and she will speak out if Carole gets on her nerves.
It has been a few months since the season wrapped, and the ladies are already filming the next season of The Real Housewives of New York. When Bethenny Frankel announced her new charity program, she sat down with The Daily Dish, and she was thrilled to give an update on her relationship with Radziwill. Now that they are filming again, are these two as tight as ever?

“Carole’s amazing. I would leave the show before I would leave Carole,” Bethenny Frankel has revealed about her friendship with Radziwill, who showed up for Bethenny’s new charity program, B Strong, where she will pay it forward and help women who are going through some hardships and give them encouraging advice to keep moving forward.
“Carole is the best thing of the entire show for me. She’s my real friend. We definitely get into it. We are different personalities. The fact that Carole woke up and came here at 7 o’clock [in the morning] and was here before me, I think, that’s like a lunar eclipse. That would be like me keeping my mouth shut for a half an hour. Carole getting up at 7 in the morning is like me being quiet for a half an hour,” Bethenny Frankel continued to The Daily Dish about her friendship with Caroline, saying that she will have to pay her friend back for supporting her, and adding, “I mean I have to keep my mouth shut for a half an hour.”
Frankel and Radziwill may have plenty of things to talk about, including their dating lives. Both women are dating after Bethenny recently settled her divorce. She has been looking at homes with her new boyfriend, Dennis Shields, and Carole has hinted that she could be looking at a new apartment she can share with Adam Kenworthy. It sounds like they are getting serious with their men.

In addition, Bethenny has revealed that she would leave The Real Housewives of New York before she would end her friendship with Radziwill. In other words, if it came down to it, she would leave the show and the marketing opportunities before she would end her friendship. Not many of the other women can say the same thing, as they have left friendships behind but continue to film the show for years.
What do you think of Bethenny Frankel’s comments about her friendship with Carole? Are you surprised that these two are as close as ever, or do you think they could start arguing on the new season of The Real Housewives of New York?
