Bethenny Frankel thought that Carole Radziwill was neglecting their friendship in favor of their fellow Real Housewife Of New York Tinsley Mortimer.
But according to Carole, 55, she was doing no such thing – and in fact, her rapport with Tinsley was manufactured by ‘producers’ for the show.
The niece-in-law of Jacqueline Onassis appeared on The Jenny McCarthy Show and shared that she and Tinsley ‘weren’t really clicking. We really weren’t.’

Carole, who left the show after its 10th season, dished that she and Tinsley ‘were on the show together. No one wanted to film with her that much.’
She added: ‘I had fixed her up with this guy I knew. So it was like – considered like an easy way to do scenes together, and we filmed a lot together.
‘But a lot of it was, you know: “Oh, you’re gonna stay in Tinsley’s room” – the producers, you know, when they divvy up rooms,’ said Carole.
‘And I was like: “Okay, but that’s not really what I would do. I would normally go to the Hamptons. I’d stay at Bethenny’s house. This is weird that I’m staying at Tinsley’s.”‘

Carole added: ‘So a lot of that. And Bethenny knew that. There was no clicking ….after filming I never spoke with Tinsley and I haven’t seen or talked to her in year – in a year or two, you know, whenever the last time – it was probably a year and a half ago. We weren’t clicking. That was one of the storylines.’
This is not the first time Carole has made this point – she previously dismissed her and Tinsley’s friendship on a reunion episode for The Real Housewives Of New York.
Appearing on Watch What Happens Live in April, Tinsley shared that: ‘Yes, I was surprised,’ when Carole took this dig at their supposed bond.
‘We talked on the phone. She knew about my relationship. We talked a lot about things, but I think she was trying to be very – yes, I think she was trying to break things down a little specifically that didn’t really make sense to a lot of people.’

‘Hi, call me, bye’: Tinsley said: ‘So yeah, it hurt my feelings, but I still love her, and I would like to be friends with her again’
Tinsley said: ‘So yeah, it hurt my feelings, but I still love her, and I would like to be friends with her again. Carole, I’d like to be friends with you again. Hi, call me, bye.’
Carole spent a half-decade in the 1990s married to Anthony Radziwill, whose mother Lee Radziwill was the sister of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis.
Anthony was an ABC producer when he wed Carole in 1994, and five years later he died of a cancer he was diagnosed of shortly before the wedding.
Lee, whose actual first name was Caroline, had Anthony by Prince Stanisław Albrecht Radziwiłł, whose noble family hails from the old Grand Duchy Of Lithuania.
