Carole Radziwill wants everyone to know she was never actually friends with Tinsley Mortimer. Radziwill departed Real Housewives of New York in 2018; her departure came as no surprise. The former war correspondent spent much of Season 10 verbally jousting her old friend, Bethenny Frankel. While many people think Frankel was the cause of Radziwill’s desire to walk away from reality TV, there appears to be more to the story. Now, Radziwill is talking, and she has far more to say about Tinsley Mortimer than Frankel.
Carole Radziwill alleges no one wanted to film with Tinsley Mortimer
Radziwill was adamant to point out that she was never really friends with Tinsley Mortimer, but she didn’t stop there. The former TV personality and journalist wants the world to know that while it looked like she was besties with Mortimer, it was only because no one else wanted to film with her.
According to The Cut, Radziwill took to the radio airwaves to let the entire public know that absolutely no one really wanted to film with Mortimer, so she was forced to take the bullet. Radziwill was paired with Mortimer for convenience purposes, according to her interview with Jenny McCarthy.
The one-time Real Housewives of New York star alleges her scenes with Mortimer were manufactured
Radziwill still seems pretty bitter towards the entire production team behind RHONY. In fact, when she showed up on The Jenny McCarthy Show on SiriusXM, the one0time reality TV star, alleged she was forced to film with Mortimer.
She went as far as to suggest no one really wanted to be around Mortimer, but she accepted her assignments. During her time on RHONY, Radziwill was close friends with Bethenny Frankel. She alleges the production team assigned her to stay with Mortimer to allow a particular storyline to play out. In reality, she claims, that would have never happened, especially when the cast took trips together.
The two reality stars are no longer in touch
Radziwill admitted that she has no idea what Mortimer is up to these days, aside from what is seen on television screens and gossip around town. According to Us Magazine, the two haven’t really spoken in years. Mortimer also ended her on-again-off-again relationship with Scott Kluth. Radziwill set the pair up, and Mortimer’s relationship with Kluth was heavily featured on the show.
It seems like Radziwill has no desire to cozy up to Mortimer anytime soon, either. She noted that the pair just never really “clicked.” That was no big secret, though. Bravo utilized the tension between the castmates to drive the show’s storyline. Radziwill announced her departure from the Real Housewives of New York cast after Season 10 wrapped, and it appears that she has no regrets about the decision.
