Things might never be the same for Carole Radizwill and Luann de Lesseps, who were once very close friends but have kept their distance from each other ever since Radziwill started dating chef Adam Kenworthy, who previously went out with de Lesseps’ niece. This week on The Real Housewives of New York City, the two women came face to face for the first time in eight months and it’s pretty clear that there is still a lot of friction in their relationship.
During Bethenny Frankel’s birthday celebration on the Bravo series, de Lesseps wanted to put everything behind them but Radizwill just wanted to keep her distance. When a viewer asked on Watch What Happens Live why Radizwill didn’t accept de Lesseps’ apology, the reality star asserted that the Countess never apologized.
“OK, she didn’t apologize. This scene, the birthday was eight months after she said lots of really nasty stuff…With some of these women you need evidence. I wish I had brought all of her tweets, her interviews…it’s one thing to say if you don’t like my boyfriend or something, but she was age shaming, she was female-bashing. It’s that kind of misogynistic bulls–t we hear from men all the time…you don’t need to hear it from a woman, let alone someone you considered a friend,” Carole told Andy Cohen. “She never apologized, which was the funny thing and moving on, I had so moved on. I had told her, ‘Luann I have so moved on, you’re not in my life and that’s OK.'”
As for de Lesseps, she just wants to move forward and if moving forward means not having de Lesseps as a friend, then she’s fine with that.
The Real Housewives of New York City airs Wednesdays, 9 p.m. on Bravo.
