LuAnn de Lesseps Calls Carole Radziwill a Huge Downer


LuAnn de Lesseps thinks Carole Radziwill was a huge downer in this week’s episode of the RHONY. She writes in her blog that she was trying to bury the hatchet and instead she feels like Radziwill was trying to chase her with one.

“The Hamptons can be like Xanax for New Yorkers, and my place in Sag Harbor is a great place to chill with my friends and family. Parties in the Hamptons are usually pretty relaxed, but Bethenny’s party…what a disaster! This just goes to show that you can have all the elements of a fabulous party (great food, interesting drinks, terrific setting), but if you have the wrong mix of people, forget about it. I’ve always believed that if you agree to attend a party, it’s your responsibility to bring a smile (and a hostess gift). Bethenny threw a lovely BBQ, and she served Moscow Mules in her front yard, so none of us had anything to complain about.

John seemed pretty resigned that apologizing to Bethenny was non-negotiable to Dorinda. He was nervous because Bethenny can become bombastic when she’s arguing. A conversation with her can go from zero to 100 in under 10 seconds and that is why John’s first attempt didn’t go over well. John’s approach was totally off. He should know by now that Bethenny isn’t really interested in what he has to say. Again, parties work best when your guests are there to have a good time, not dredge up the past or settle differences.

You can see when I arrived at Bethenny’s party that I was in a great mood and that I brought a hula-hoop just for the fun of it. Who doesn’t love hula-hoops? If Carole doesn’t like the way I make an entrance, she should stay home. Instead she talked about me behind my back and was a huge downer. I was completely ready to make up and move forward, but Carole will not let go of an argument that lost its relevancy a year ago! Old news! Instead of burying the hatchet, I felt like Carole was chasing me with one. Yet, in spite of our disagreement, you can see that we agreed to be cordial to one another even if we aren’t going to be friends. That’s about as good as it’s going to get, and I’m OK with that.

Jules is a great gal, and I’m starting to see her as the Zen Housewife. She was kind to invite us to brunch at her beautiful Watermill home and if Carole and Bethenny didn’t want to be there, they could have made other plans. What Carole said about my date Paul making it all the way to brunch was rude and shows that she will be nice to my face while insulting me behind my back. Her focus on my love life says more about her than it does about me. And why did Bethenny feel the need to zing Jules about her home and her construction plans? I think she should have kept her mouth full of bagel and lox instead of sharing her opinions on home renovation. So negative. I agree with Jule’s husband Michael that it’s better to do it right the first time, even if it takes more time. Same can be said about friendships.”

  1. Luann thinks things are over when she says they are over. She’s very bullish. Her comment saying Carole is chasing her with the hatchet is very telling. She sees herself as the innocent victim. All. The. Time.

  2. It’s pretty hard to call someone a pedophile and then expect them to forgive and forget. I don’t blame Carole for wanting to keep her distance from Luann, I would do the same. Luann needs to make a huge apology for her actions, and even then, I would not trust her again.

    1. LuAnn made a huge production about Carole’s relationship with that Guy,I guess to show loyalty to family over the show (which I get) but took way too far and left casualties.Now the niece has probably moved to another love and Luann has egg on her face.

      1. Luann’s niece and Adam had broken up before Adam and Carole met. Like Carole said, “Is he a friend of the family or the “help”?”

  3. Ehh, Carole can’t play victim because she’s not innocent in this conflict. Yes Luann lost her sh*t over it but I recall Carole responding to Luann’s tweets and many of those were not so nice. Also Carole has said mean things about Luann before her May December romance (which I think is ridiculous, sorry not sorry, feel the same about old men young women) and Luann got over it pretty quickly. I think that’s just how she is.

  4. I’ve wondered why Caroel told the others about hooking up with the young guy but kept it secret from Luann at first.

    I agree, I think it’s just Luann’s nature to get over things fairly quickly and move on.

    I’m also wondering if some of the botox has creeped up into Carole’s brain or if she’s joined Bethenny in double-dosing adderall.. Cause Carole is acting uuugly mean.

  5. Luann thinks she can bad mouth Carole all over the place & Carole will be cordial with her??!! Countess Luann is a very low classed person all around. That’s as much boring input that I can muster up.
