RHONY Carole Radziwill Wishes She Had Talked More About the Election

RHONY Carole Radziwill recently spoke to the Daily Dish and talked about how she wishes she would have spoke about the election more than she did while filming this season of the show.

“Honestly, looking back now, I probably didn’t talk about it enough,” Carole explained. “I should’ve gone harder on social media. I should’ve been out there more talking about what was going on.”

Carole then talked about not being able to properly talk with the rest of the RHONY cast about it while filming.

“I don’t think I navigate talking about politics very well, to be honest. I certainly didn’t on the show with this particular group of friends because there are different levels of interest. I’m very interested in politics. I always have been. At ABC News, I covered lots of politics. I interviewed lots of politicians and spent a lot of time in Washington, D.C. So it’s just something that I’ve always been interested in. I’m not a political expert. I’m not Rachel Maddow. It’s a hobby and an interest and a passion,” Carole said. “And there are always different levels, and in this group there are definitely different levels. A lot of people aren’t interested in politics at all, and if you’re not interested at all, it’s hard to have a conversation because I felt a lot of times I was being a little pedantic, although I didn’t mean to be.”

One of the people Carole could be talking about is Bethenny Frankel who admitted that it wasn’t good for her to be talking and thinking about the election that much.

“There was a point right before the election where I was going really hard on social media, and I was part of the Get Out the Vote campaign. I was probably that friend who was super annoying who would show up at your house for lunch and dinner at your house and say, ‘Oh my God, have you read this article? Have you seen what happened today? Did you hear what he said in Florida?'” Carole explained. “I will cop to the fact that that could probably be annoying. And certainly, Bethenny got the brunt of that because we spent so much time together. I don’t know. She says I was obsessed. I just say I was interested.”

Carole was still very determined to keep talking about politics regardless of weather the rest of the cast wanted too. “I was just being myself. I am who I am on the show and off the show, and off the show, that’s what I was talking about. That’s what the whole country was talking about,” she said. “So I just couldn’t show up and have lunch with my friends and not talk about it. I’m sure everyone would’ve rather talked about Luann [D’Agostino]’s wedding or my boyfriend or who Ramona was dating. Maybe everyone would’ve been happier. But I wasn’t interested in that.”

Carole’s concern was that talking a lot about the election while filming would be irrelevant by the time the show aired.

“We’re still talking about the same issues, and serious, serious issues going on in Washington and need to be talked about,” she said. “And so, here I am talking about it still.”

  1. Yes because I am on the same side and I was acting the same way. Luckily for me my friends and family were with me.

    1. I feel the same as Carole. And my friends, although stand with me, were not as involved on social media as I. It was all that we talked about last year. I still am kicking and screaming on social media and watch the news and make notes. Crazy I know. LOL

  2. Really Carole? The election was over before it aired. Politics and religion are things that are better off discussed with those who you know share your beliefs.
    I, for one, am not watching NY for politics. Watching it now does not change things about the current status. Carole needs her own show about politics. She should try to take over for O’Reilly, even if they are opposite with much of their beliefs. Then again, maybe CNN is a better choice.
    I liked Bill O’Reilly, especially when he came out with his first book that I read. I don’t know what to believe now. (Is that political?)

  3. For someone who claims to be so well informed and a journalist in my opinion she’s neither – shouldn’t her opinion be separate from her being a journalist? I find her to be more annoying this year and very condescending to everyone – hello – This is the United States – everyone is entitled to their own opinions and beliefs (thankfully) and free to vote for who they please. Please Carole – go get a life – or maybe some more dogs and cats

    1. I totally agree!! She was being so rude to Ramona. Just because you’re a journalist and still have friends that are active in that world doesn’t mean that other people don’t have access to news? Ramona can read the same articles as you mama.

  4. Oh Carole get over yourself. Yes, you entitled little POS think that you could have influenced more people – wrong.
    I don’t care who you voted for – the election is over. Move on, plan for the future.

  5. Carole Radziwill is a perfect example of the left-wing, look-down-your-nose, elitist attitude that is responsible for Donald Trump winning the presidency. All of us mouth-breathing, uneducated, ignorant, church-going deplorables listened to the issues instead of the entitled rants of the liberal idiocy. Now, if they would just either work for the good of the country and support our president, or go away, we will all be better off.

    1. So true. Another snowflake still crying over spilled milk. I cannot agree that she is well informed and certainly not educated if the characterless, lying, Hillary was her candidate who had no solutions to America’s problems, then there isn’t much hope for Carole.

  6. I like Carole, always have and still do but I don’t like her comment about people not being as informed as she. True not everyone is. I am a news junkie, Barbara I make notes too, both my husband and I are very informed about politics etc but I have to say her comment bothered me and truthfully I don’t want to know any of their political standings. My thoughts and beliefs run in a different direction to hers and probably to most of them. I want to watch the HW’s for a whole lot of other reasons and not one is to do with politics.

    Carole, please stay focused on your present place in life i.e. a housewife and don’t speak of politics while on the show. I love and respect your passion but its misplaced right now.

    P.S. More comments on Social media would not have changed the outcome. No offense, your’e not that important…………..well okay you’re important to me ’cause I like you but not enough to have made a difference in my political standing.

  7. If Carole was so connected why wasn’t she at Hillary’s Election Night Party down at the Javits Center? I was even invited to that!
