Carole Radziwill on the Perks of Aging


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.”

My name is Nicki. I am 32 years-old and married to my best friend. I was previously in business for over 12 years, but I’ve always had a great passion for web and graphic design. Another one of my passions, of course, is to escape into the world of TV, which is where this journey began. My goal in starting AllThingsRH.com was to give fans, like myself, a place to catch up on all the latest news and gossip about The Real Housewives. I wanted to create a place where viewers could interact with each other, share their opinions, and get straight-forward and unbiased information about what’s going on. I am proud of the diversity this site has to offer.

  • This might be stating the obvious but she sure is reliving her 20’s vicariously…through Adam.

    • I say good for her. She still has a figure that I had in my 20’s but no more, sadly. She was dating some “Rock” guy before Adam, so I would say that this is the kind of guy she is attracted too.

    A little disappointed in her this year but still Team Carole.


    I wouldn’t be surprised if she has a form of body dysmorphic disorder. She is way too thin and doesn’t look healthy. Her skin looks sallow, her eyes are sunken from being too thin. This new diet she is on with Adam isn’t working with her. She must think being skinny with zero muscle tone or body fat is attractive. And yes, she is reliving her tween years with those outfits. And I know how people in Europe and NY dress and she is nowhere close to looking like them so don’t start in on how cool and hip and “downtown” she dresses. CLASS: Easy to recognize, hard to define. And she is nowhere near having any. If she acted more like a 52 year old woman, her clothes wouldn’t bother me so much but the way she’s acting and those clothes? No. Just no. Those skin tight pants with the camel toe and saggy ass? And her attitude? And her stupid comments this year? And what’s with that black choker in her talking head from last night making her wrinkly, saggy throat muscle more noticeable? Sorry Carole, NOT attractive at all. If you notice, the cool, hip people from Europe and NY dress to draw attention to their finer qualities, not the things that aren’t. Take note Carole: your true colors are coming out and they are not attractive or classy or making you look intelligent at all.

      wish Bravo would dump both Carole and Betthaney….. this isn’t fun at all…. talk about girl code… you two are trashy….

      • Cin

        also… Carole – you —- never mind….

  • Team Countess Luann

    Why is Carol following Bethenny like a mindless MEAN GIRL idiot ????

    I thought Carol was smart but she proves to everyone that joining the Mean Girl group is more important than doing what’s right

    Luann apologized & apologized & APOLOGIZED to Carol but I guess Carol has early dementia since she’s 52 because she won’t accept Luann’s nonstop apology!!!

    Im so disappointed in Carol & following Mean Girl Bethenny

    Stop being a follower Carol —

    Think for yourself, accept Luann’s apologies,
    Stop being a Mean Girl !!!!
