‘Next!’

Carole Radziwill Leaving ‘RHONY,’ Blames ‘Frenemies’ For Her Departure

'I am sure this does not come as a surprise,' Bethenny Frankel's ex bestie told fans.

Carole Radziwill is a housewife no more! After six years on The Real Housewives of New York City, the journalist turned author released a statement announcing she would not be returning for another season of the hit Bravo show.

“After six seasons on Bravo’s RHONY, I have decided to return to what I do best — journalism and producing,” Carole said in a statement to The Daily Dish. “I am sure this does not come as a surprise to any of the viewers, all of whom have been supportive, encouraging, and kind.”

“My original curiosity about reality television has waned over the years and I am focusing on TV and writing projects that better suit my more steady temperament,” she continued.

“I have worked with amazing producers, made great friends, and I’m thrilled to leave frenemies behind,” Carole joked. “I will remember this entire experience with delight, humor, and a veracious accuracy. Next.”

In addition to her statement, Carole also posted a cryptic quote on Instagram, writing, “Didn’t change, just learned.”

As RHONY fans know, Carole recently had a falling out with her former bestie Bethenny Frankel on the show. Although Carole has been Bethenny’s biggest defender in the past, the relationship changed after Carole befriended their newest costar Tinsley Mortimer last season.

Prior to joining RHONY, Carole previously worked for ABC News. She later wrote a book about her late husband Anthony’s death after a five-year battle with cancer in the best selling book, What Remains: A Memoir of Fate, Friendship, and Love.
