Jackie Kennedy Onassis’ Sister Ashamed Carole Radziwill Is Using Family Name On RHONY?


The youngest sister of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, Lee Radziwill, is reportedly “mortified” that her former daughter-in-law has brought their family name to reality TV by starring in The Real Housewives of New York City. Carole was wed to Lee’s only son, Anthony, from 1994 -1999, before he died from cancer, just weeks after his cousin, John F. Kennedy Jr., was killed in a plane crash.

Lee, who is said to be very private, “guards her privacy with a vengeance and has expressed her disappointment that Carole used the Radzwill name on The Real Housewives of New York,” an insider tells RadarOnline. “It’s just tacky. Lee believes Tony never would have wanted Carole to be a part of reality television and she can’t quite grasp why anyone would want to be a on a television show with women fighting and getting drunk. Fortunately, she lives in Paris and that puts some distance between her and the sensational headlines.”
