Last week, we learned that Carole Radziwill is officially done with The Real Housewives of New York City.
We get it. If we’d gone from being fast friends with Bethenny Frankel to feuding with her, we’d head for the hills, too.
But after the news of Carole’s departure went public, she took to social media to insinuate that she had a very different reason for walking away.
Following the announcement that she is parting ways with The Real Housewives of New York City, Carole took to Instagram.
“If you were doing something that was forcing you to do things that went against your own value system,” Carole begins her question to her followers.
Carole then asks them: “Would you walk away regardless of the pay?”
For most, that would depend upon what was being asked and on a lot of life circumstances — including pay.
Carole acknowledges: “Its a tough decision.”
Carole went so far as to poll her followers on the question.
“My advice,” Carole writes, is: “Save for a rainy day.”
She kind of mixes up her metaphor a little, as you’re about to see. Oh, Carole.
Carole advises her fans and followers to save “because that day might come when the sun is shining.”
The whole idea behind saving for a rainy day is … never mind.
Carole finishes: “and you can walk away with a smile.”
Carole wasn’t joking about that poll, folks. She looked at the responses and even posted a follow-up.
“So,” Carole reports. “80% would walk away from something that went against their own values.”
Well, that’s the figure who say that they would.
“That’s how I felt this past year too,” Carole admits.
“It’s difficult,” she writes, to say goodbye to a good thing.
“But life is long,” Carole says. “And you can’t always play the short game.”
We have to point out the obvious here — and we don’t just mean that Carole didn’t seem to have a problem being a reality star, despite her “values,” back when she and Bethenny Frankel were getting along.
She’s asking people if they’d walk away from a high-paying gig in order to make a moral stand.
Carole’s estimated net worth is around $ 50 million. She is directly related to royalty.
So walking away from a steady gig is … probably less dramatic than it would be if a single mom of two is faced with the choice of continuing to work in an unethical industry or walking away.
Quite frankly, plenty of people would sell their souls to rake in some Real Housewives money.
Carole announced her departure through a statement.
“After six seasons on Bravo’s RHONYC, I have decided to return to what I do best,” Carole shared. “Journalism and producing.”
“I am sure this does not come as a surprise to any of the viewers,” Carole shares. “All of whom have been supportive, encouraging, and kind.”
“My original curiosity about reality television has waned over the years,” she admitted. “And I am focusing on TV and writing projects that better suit my more steady temperament.”
“I have worked with amazing producers, made great friends, and I’m thrilled to leave frenemies behind.” she said. That last line was a big hit.
Carole concluded: “I will remember this entire experience with delight, humor, and a veracious accuracy.”
Demi Lovato’s presence was felt even in her absence … thanks to the Cheat Codes. The EDM trio — best known for their hit song “No Promises” featuring Demi — replaced Demi when she was forced to cancel her headlining appearance Thursday in…
We have another Real Housewives franchise cast shake-up.
Just hours after we confirmed that Kenya Moore has left the Atlanta version of this program admist a messy contract negotiation, we can now also announce the following:
Carole Radziwill is finished with Bravo as well.
The 54-year-old, who not everyone realizes is an award-winning journalist and best-selling author, told People Magazine on Wednesday evening that she’s departing the cable network hit.
She joined the program during Season 5.
“After six seasons on Bravo’s RHONY, I have decided to return to what I do best – journalism and producing,” Radziwill said today, adding in more detail:
“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.
Radziwill came on board as a Real Housewife in 2012, along with Heather Thomson and Aviva Drescher.
It may seem hard to believe now to those who follow this franchise closely, but Carole quickly became good friends with SkinnyGirl founder Bethenny Frankel in Season 8.
Their friendship has soured significantly, however.
Radziwill and Frankel went at it very hard, in fact, on the most recent episode of this reality smash.
You can watch The Real Housewives of New York City online via the following video in order to see what transpired:
In her statement to People, Radziwill concluded with a combination of sincerity and humor:
“I have worked with amazing producers, made great friends, and I’m thrilled to leave frenemies behind.
“I will remember this entire experience with delight, humor, and a veracious accuracy. Next.”
For those unaware, Radziwill really does have an impressive journalistic resume.
She was stationed in Iraq back in 1991 and was embedded with an infantry unit of the 101st Airborne Division in Afghanistan in 2003.
In 2006, Radziwill signed with Glamour magazine to write a monthly column titled Lunch Date.
Carole also sold her first novel, The Widow’s Guide to Sex & Dating, in a six-figure deal to Holt Publishing. It was released on February 11, 2014.
For her work, Radziwill has won three Emmys and a Peabody.
In the wakeof her departure, meanwhile, Radziwill left a very simple note on Instagram. It reads as follows:
Radziwill’s husband Anthony, died in 1999 after a five-year battle with cancer.
She’s currently in an on-again, off-again relationship with chef and filmmaker Adam Kenworthy.

The Real Housewives of New York City are about to take a trip.
And they may never be the same.
Bravo has released a trailer for upcoming episodes of this franchise's current season, with much of the footage focusing on much-anticipated and discussed boat trip in Colombia …
… and it looks and sounds truly insane.
Among the soundbites revealed in this preview:
Why is there a siren?
Where the f—k are the life jackets?
Get on the floor!
There are also quite a few tears shed, as teased here:
What the heck transpired on this so-called vacation?
Said Ramona Singer to Us Weekly in March:
"We hit extremely turbulent waters and we were freaking out. When you’re in turbulent waters and the boat’s really rocking … I was scared.
"I can’t swim so I was scared shitless, to tell you the truth."
It looks very much as if she wasn't alone.
Added an insider to this same tabloid:
"The whole cast was wet and terrified for their lives.
"Everyone felt very close to each other after going through that and anything people had been fighting about no longer mattered. All the women called loved ones when they got back to shore."
Of course, this trailer doesn't JUST preview the boat trip.
We get plenty of the usual drama from Singer, Bethenny Frankel, Carole Radziwill, Sonja Morgan, Tinsley Mortimer, Dorinda Medley and Luann de Lesseps.
The women laugh it up… they fight… they dance… they scream with joy and also in horror.
Bethenny goes at it with Carole; Sonja hurls shade at Ramona; Luann doing her best Sofia Vergara impression; and Dorinda even takes on Luann.
Over the latter's arrest, of course.
“Don’t you dare talk to me like that. An ex con? You drink some more and get arrested again,” r says, pushing a drink Luann's direction. “Get married again. You’re awful.”
She later also tells Luann:
“I stood for you for everything. I almost got arrested for you."
Fun and dramatic times!
The Real Housewives of New York City airs on Bravo Wednesdays at 9/8c.
