Andy Cohen and Carole Radziwill’s Feud Heats Up
In the smoldering ashes of the latest Real Housewives of New York City’s reunion is a feud between former housewife, Carole Radziwill and Bravo producer, Andy Cohen. The feud appears to be grounded in the friendship dissolution between Radziwill and cast member Bethenny Frankel, which was recounted a number of times during season 10 reunion.
Frankel and Radziwill spent the majority of season 10 bickering and delivering passive aggressive comments until the firey reunion. After hurling a number of digs at each other, Radziwill concluded: “I realized I was really, really trying to salvage our friendship and you didn’t seem that interested,” Bravo Personal Space reports.
So how did Cohen get into the mix? Previously, he and Radziwill seemed to be old pals. When asked which cast he preferred the most, he told Time Out magazine in 2016, “I have a special place in my heart for the New York ladies. I’ve known Carole Radziwill the longest. She’s a personal friend.”
Fast forward two years and Cohen’s tune has changed. The latest comment he made post-reunion is likely to sting Radziwill the most.
The feud started with this comment
The RHONYC reunion heated up to a boiling point as Cohen tried to referee Frankel and Radziwill. As the women exchanged barbs, Cohen attempted to re-direct the conversation and get confirmation during the women’s rapid-fire insult exchange.
However, Cohen got caught in the cross-fire when he pressed Radziwill to admit both she and Frankel bashed each other. Radziwill responded by saying Cohen was full of sh*t and questioned if he was afraid of Frankel too. To which Cohen responded sarcastically, “Yeah I’m afraid of her.”
But then Radziwill tweeted this
Before the reunion aired Radziwill announced she was leaving the show, which prompted this fan’s response. “I think his ego recovered when he fired her” the fan tweeted in response to a tweet about the reunion smackdown.
To which, Radziwill responded, “If I was fired because I yelled at Andy Id be screaming it from rooftops…his ego didn’t bruise. Trust.” Radziwill insists her departure was her return to journalism and producing, People reports.
Cohen acts like he and Radziwill are ‘all good’
Despite the spicy dialog between the two, Cohen shrugs off the remarks. When asked about his relationship with Radziwill at the Tribeca TV Festival on September 23, Cohen told Page Six, “She had a great run on the show, and what a cool journey for her,” he said. “I knew her before [the show] for many years and it was fascinating watching her grow.”
Cohen added he and Radziwill have remained in touch post-reunion.
However, Cohen made this dig that has to hurt
The feud recently escalated when Cohen made this comment about Radziwill during the season premiere of Bravo’s Play by Play. When asked about Radziwill’s assertion that Cohen was full of sh*t, Cohen said, “I thought it was very Trumpian of her and I was very surprised by that,” People reports.
Radziwill notoriously supported candidate Hillary Clinton during the presidential election. This comment prompted a response.
Radziwill snaps back
Radziwill weighed in on Twitter in response to Cohen’s “Trumpian” comment. “Lol. I stand by
#FOS. Trumpian is what @Andy did. Created a false equivalent. He said we both bashed each other “all season.” Look at the clips. I was in the same outfit a black top. B/c it was all the last episodes in interviews taped 2 weeks before the reunion.”
