Carole Radziwill The Real Housewives of New York - RHONY

Kelly Bensimon Shades Carole Radziwill: Insists She Used a Ghost Writer & Claims She Wasn’t Cut for Reality TV!

Geez – what does former RHONY Kelly Bensimon have against Carole Radziwill?

In a recent interview with “Tony’s Tea Corner” Kelly shaded Ms. Radziwill more than once and hit it where she knew it hurt: her writing.

Kelly admits that she doesn’t actually know Carole; however from what she saw, she wasn’t a fit for Bravo saying:

“I don’t know Carole at all, I only knew Bethenny from filming. My personal opinion is that Carole was not right for TV. She’s a journalist, she’s a behind the scenes person. She wasn’t into it, she didn’t like it, she’s a professional woman.”

“She didn’t have the courage to stand up to Bethenny like me. She’s very close to Andy, and I think she was kind of like ‘do I ruin my relationship with Andy over this?’?

When Carole’s writing came up (a hot topic in the history of the show) Kelly insisted that Carole did in fact use a ghost writer, stating:

“I actually used her ghost writer for my first book. I don’t know if she’s a great writer, but she’s a great storyteller.”

When asked to clarify if Aviva was right in the great ghost writer debate, she stated: “uh, yeah! Because I used her.”

As for her (and Carole’s) enemy Bethenny Frankel, well let’s just say she’s not a fan of her either:

“Bethenny and I have a lot of similarities. We are both very hard working. I consider us to be mavericks. I don’t think in terms of the way we parent or they way we see the world that we are very similar. I would never bash my ex-husband, that’s just so tacky. All of that should be behind closed doors, she knows better. She has to be on her own because she just wants to be the victim, but that storyline is just tacky.”

Yikes! If Kelly had any hopes of getting on better terms with these ladies she is not doing herself any favors; however maybe she’s just looking to create drama as a way to get back on the show?

Thoughts on Kelly’s comments? Would you want her back on the show?
