According to Countess Luann, star of “The Real Housewives New York,” the season officially begins by episode four. This is where the “sagas really begin.” And if you haven’t heard by now, Luann is really fired up about Carole Radziwill and her much younger gentleman caller, Adam. In this week’s Bravo blog, Luann calls out Carole for being “sneaky, disrespectful, and uncool.”
“Carole and I were such great friends before, and I’ve been very disappointed by her this season. I slowly came to realize that when it comes to Carole, not everything is what it seems. There’s an element of “fake” in it, and you don’t really see it until it’s directed at you. You’ll see what I mean.”
Personally, I think desperate people do desperate things. There are 8 women on this show, definitely 1 too many. Perhaps Carole was more into a shocking storyline than into this personal chef.
“I had no idea that Carole, ever-so-single and ready to mingle, would start mingling with my chef, who happens to be my niece’s recent ex-boyfriend and my son’s friend. I had no idea I’d have to keep an eye on a close friend, whom I would assume would know better than to pick up my staff.”
Should assume this golden nugget bit of advice is in her book, “Class With the Countess?” You know what happens when we assume something. But there’s more helpful, every day advice from the Countess.
“I understand someone can be attractive and someone can be looking for love, but there’s a certain level of discretion and respect that we women should maintain for our inner circles, especially when there’s close family involved. Carole was highly aware of that! Obviously, she knew she was in the wrong; this is why she struggled for so long on how to tell me. It seems everyone else, including Heather, knew about it. (And Heather even knows my niece, which was just a tad more insulting than I expected from her, too.) Ultimately, it was sneaky, disrespectful, and uncool.”
Be prepared to hear versions of the word: uncool from Luann a lot this season. Having said that, Luann is not done with the character shaming of Carole. Luann wrote,
“So let’s review: barfing in pedicabs, looking for men in your girlfriends’ kitchens and thinking it’s cute, hiding inappropriate flings from those friends and wanting to announce your fling via a “screwing emoji” on a text…tacky. WHAT she did and HOW she did it is the problem. I’m fiercely loyal to my friends and devoted to my family, and when anyone crosses that line, I defend it to the fullest. Carole should stick to good ol’ fashioned Tinder and not scavenge for dates in my kitchen. Cool? OK, moving on.”
Somehow I doubt she’s moving on, but Luann had an interesting take on the Dorinda and John dinner scene.
“This restaurant scene was enough to make anyone want to run onto a pedicab and puke all the way home.”
Well said Luann!
