Carole Radziwill vs. Luann de Lesseps — RHONY
The princess and the countess found themselves one-upping each other when Carole joined the show for season 5 in 2012. The tension between the two women increased in season 7 when Carole started dating Luann’s niece’s ex-boyfriend Adam Kenworthy after she met him at Luann’s house. As a result, Luann called Carole a pedophile because Adam is 20 years younger than the author. When season 10 was airing in April 2018, Luann called Carole and castmate Tinsley Mortimer “mean girls” on Twitter for comments they made about her controversial Diana Ross Halloween costume and her brief marriage to Tom D’Agostino.
Where They Stand Today: Carole and Luann attempted to put their issues regarding Adam behind them, but after the former journalist decided to leave the series in July 2018, Luann (and Bethenny) suggested at one of her cabaret shows that Carole was actually fired from the show. Carole, who told Us in October 2018 that the only costar she stays in touch with is Ramona Singer, responded to a fan who asked her about Luann’s claims on Twitter, writing, “I’m all good! Luann should focus on her own addictions and family problems. I wish her the best.”Back to top
