On the episode, host Andy Cohen asked Frankel if she regrets her fallout with former costar Radziwill. In response, Frankel said that she did regret her fallout with Radziwill and that she thinks that the show “does crazy things to people.”
Frankel and Radziwill were good friends on The Real Housewives of New York until Season 10 when their friendship ended. Throughout the season, Frankel and Radziwill did not get along, and tensions were especially high during the Season 10 reunion special. The two women fought over everything, and Frankel also had a problem with Radziwill’s ex-boyfriend, Adam Kenworthy, after he supposedly asked to be compensated for a charity photoshoot, according to People.
Radziwill Has a Lot to Say About Frankel
Even though Frankel said that she doesn’t regret her friendship with Radziwill, it seems like Radziwill sure does. During a July 2019 interview on The Jenny McCarthy Show, Radziwill didn’t hold back when it came to talking about her old friend Frankel. “We were close when we met on the show…I would consider her a good friend and had up until the last season,” Radziwill said at the time during her appearance on The Jenny McCarthy Show, as noted by E!. “None of what she was saying was true…I don’t know what—she was obviously constructing a storyline for herself that wasn’t based in reality.”
Radziwill continued, as noted by E! “I was a very good friend to [Bethenny]. That’s all I’m going to say. I supported her in her charities, I gave her a lot of money…I really cared about her…I was just being a really good friend to her. I think I was trying to establish some boundaries at the end and sometimes people don’t do well with that. I just wanted…it was just a little too much Bethenny and not enough Carole in the relationship. I didn’t blow that relationship up. Even when we were filming I have text messages…It was definitely time for me to leave…I think at the end, if I’m being honest, I didn’t trust the process and that made me nervous.”

This is what I look like most days. It’s not filtered. It’s not lit well. & right now, for the worst time in many lifetimes, for many people, life isn’t filtered. . Unemployment is at record numbers. People are holding signs saying, “will work for food,” domestic violence is up, people are losing their jobs at every economic level, the poor are getting poorer. People’s emotional states are in jeopardy, mental illness is exacerbated. It’s truly a catastrophic crisis inducing fear and anxiety and trauma. Will there be a silver lining? Is this a global reset? If so, from what & where to? . Will our world be as superficial and materialistic as it was before this wake up call? If we’re not surrounded by people who feel that this is a change in the world, then we may choose to surround ourselves with new people. . I’ve played my part in this process as much as anyone. . I long for the day when we took a photo, developed the film, and prayed for the best. It was authentic. It was us. It represented the truth and not false reality where it’s more important to show people how good our lives are than for them to actually be good. . I’ve lived during a time when turning a camera on ourselves for everyone to “look over here,” “look how great I look in a bikini” would be a narcissistic preposterous action. & I get it, this is me too. . The way I am happiest and most comfortable 90 percent of my time is not posting where, what & when I’m supposed to be posting, because it’s good for “my brand” & will get likes. This has become a “don’t hate the player, hate the game” scenario. & maybe I am a little tired of the game when watching people suffer with real world problems. . Maybe there is a world beyond fake filters, fake photos, fake lighting, fake eyelashes, fake hair, fake curves and body parts, fake contouring, fake lives & fake people. Maybe this experience will take us closer to that place. . I’ve lived on “reality tv” for over a decade, & that wasn’t reality. What people are facing right now, that’s reality, & it isn’t pretty. . If there is one thing Coronavirus has reminded us of is what is real and what is important because everything else is just filler. . #thisisme
Radziwill is not the only friend that Frankel has fallen out with while appearing on The Real Housewives of New York. During the third season of the show, Frankel fell out with costar Jill Zarin. The two feuded throughout that season, but have since reconciled when Zarin’s husband, Bobby Zarin, passed away. Today, the two aren’t exactly the best of friends, but they still remain cordial.
“There were definitely roads that I took the wrong way, throughout the whole thing,” Zarin admitted during a May 2019 appearance on Radio Andy Sirius XM show, according to People. “I know that maybe I should have shown up at her apartment when this whole thing went down and just said, ‘What are we fighting about? Let’s just make up.’ I just let it fester.”
