Carole Radziwill Bethenny is Public ‘Frenemy’ #1 Driving Me From ‘RHONY’
Carole Radziwill‘s announcement she’s leaving ‘Real Housewives of NY’ due to “frenemies” is a not-so-thinly veiled shot at Bethenny Frankel … TMZ has learned.
Sources close to the ‘RHONY’ cast tell TMZ … Carole feels like Bethenny is el jefe when it comes to cast members. She’s, quite simply, the dominant personality, but after Carole and Bethenny had a falling out in the Spring … Carole felt blackballed, in a way.
Our sources say BF controls the show and used her power to push Carole out of the picture … effectively reducing her camera time. Behind the scenes, we’re told, other cast members refer to ‘RHONY’ as ‘The Bethenny Show.’
We’ve reached out to Bethenny … but no word back yet.
Carole spent 6 seasons on the Bravo show, and says she’s going to focus on writing projects better suited for her “more steady temperament.”
