What BFF breakup?
The Season 10 premiere of The Real Housewives of New York City shocked fans by hinting that Bethenny Frankel and Carol Radziwill’s once-tight friendship had completely dissolved. Now, Frankel is telling her side of the story.
“There’s no fallout between Carole and myself,” she told TheFIX in an exclusive interview in Sydney on April 9. “I really love Carole.”
While it may seem like they’ve drifted apart, the 47-year-old Skinnygirl founder says her bond with Radziwill was just never that deep.
“Most of my friends, my best friends, I’ve had for 30 years. So, I have my really tight-knit group and meeting any new people is always – I don’t want to say risky – but it’s not the same depth and dimension as friends that you’ve had your whole life,” she said.
“And creating friendships under these circumstances on a reality show with so many people around… If you have any sort of slight shift, everybody’s like, well, what happened?… There are too many cooks spoiling the broth.
“But I love Carole, and I love being on the show with her, and it’s been a great experience.”
Last week, Radziwill told E! News their friendship became strained after the 54-year-old journalist “saw some behaviour that I just didn’t think was consistent with someone I would consider a really good friend.”
“I feel like now I see [Bethenny] a little bit more realistically and less idealistically,” Radziwill said.
But while Frankel maintains she has no qualms with her co-star, she did hint there is more drama to come between them in Season 10.
“You’ll see a lot of that play out, for sure,” she told TheFIX.
