Real Housewives of New York City star Carole Radziwill has no qualms about getting older. Now, 52 years-old, Radziwill says, “Everything is really great about getting older, you’re smarter, wiser, funnier, you don’t take any crap, in a good way.”

Carole shares that she feels more at ease in life. “I was never good at being my age. I always kind of wanted to be older so now that I am, I feel like, oh I’m finally that age that I wanted to be,” she told People. “I expected to look older, I don’t know what I expected, to be more mature or something. But again, I wasn’t good at being 20 and I’m really not good at being 50. I’m sort of like Benjamin Button; I’m in some ways regressing a little but it’s okay. Because you can do that if you’re aware of it.”

Carole says she feels “empowered” and says that she looks at the world a little differently at the world a little differently since turning 50. “When I think of turning 50, what surprised me was that I still had incredible curiosity about life and the world. For me, my 20’s – the whole world was ahead of you, you’re curious about everything … And when I turned 50, I felt for the first time in a long time, this curiosity again,” she said. “I can do anything, I know myself better, and I have the confidence. There’s all this hard work behind me.”
