This season on the Real Housewives of New York City fans have watched Bethenny Frankel and Carole Radziwill’s friendship disintegrate. Tinsley Mortimer says while she’s very close to Carole, she is not a factor in the demise of Carole’s friendship with Bethenny.
“My friendship with Carole is completely and utterly separate from Bethenny,” Mortimer told OK! Magazine. “I love Carole. She is a dear, dear friend. She introduced me to Scott, which was so nice and ugh, you know, I am not the direct cause of their friendship.”
As for Frankel and Radziwill, after being BFF for several seasons, this year things have been different. A divide has grown between them, and they continue to fight about everything from boyfriends to charity work.
Frankel has admitted that there has been “a shift” in the friendship, and Radziwill has disputed several things Frankel has said about her. B has said that there is a difference between her lifelong friends and the friends she has made on the show. She explained that friendships with new people aren’t as deep as the friendships you have had your whole life.
But, Radziwill has a different perspective. She says she has seen a different side of Frankel and isn’t happy with some of the things her former friend has done. So, she has adjusted her expectations. She says she is a bit more realistic in how she sees Frankel and less idealistic.
Carole Radziwill says that she thought she had a real friendship with Bethenny Frankel, but her behavior wasn’t consistent with someone she would consider a good friend. All of a sudden, things got “gossip-y,” mean, and unnecessary.
Whose side are you on? Bethenny or Carole?
