Carole Radzwill was one of three new ladies we were introduced to in Season 5 of The Real Housewives of New York. I would have to say she’s a fan favorite, with her laid back attitude and little involvement in the drama. Now that the finale has approached us, Carole is talking to Newsday New York about her first season as a Real Housewife.
“I think, [regarding] my presence, I have a good sense of humor about it,” she says. “I feel like sometimes I’m in a comedy and the other ladies think they’re in a drama. And I think the audience members can relate to that a little bit.” I agree, Carole was almost always able to avoid conflict this season, and I love her attitude about it!
Carole continues, “I made a promise to myself I wasn’t going to do anything in front of the cameras that I wouldn’t do normally in my real life. There is the pressure to step up and create drama, and I just never did it. … My position is, I don’t get in the middle of two grown women fighting.”
“A lot of the fights, you’re hearing about secondhand, and it’s really hard to figure out who said what to whom, until you watch it, and then, you’re like, ‘Holy cow!'” she laughs.
Overall Carole is pretty happy with how the season played out, “There’s some ‘ouch’ moments when I’d say something goofy; I’ve thought, ‘Ugh, I wish I didn’t say that,” she explains. “There’s a lot of talk about the editing, but I think they can only edit what’s on tape. I thought I had a lot more funny jokes that didn’t end up in the show, so maybe I think I’m funnier than I am.”
One of Carole’s favorite moments of the season was getting drunk with cast mate Heather Thomson at a bar, “We were both just like, ‘Oh, my God. What the hell happened?'” Radziwill says. “It was really fun. Heather is just really down-to-earth and a great girl, and it was fun because it was completely real. We just sat there, and just had shot after shot after shot of cherry bombs, and we got so drunk. Those moments for me — I looked drunk, and it was very clear that we had been overserved — but it was real, and it was just fun to do. I’m not trying to pretend I’m someone I’m not. I’m a girl that likes to go to a bar every once in a while, and get hammered and have a good time.” Amen to that!
Will Carole come back next season? I hope so! “It really depends on what’s going on in my life,” she reveals. “I have to really think about it. We just filmed the reunion, and we just finished the season, so we have a little time to think about what we’re going to do, going forward.”
