“The Real Housewives of New York” star Carole Radziwill is exiting the show after six years!
In a recent statement, Radziwill confirmed her departure, saying, “I have decided to return to what I do best — journalism and producing. I am sure this does not come as a surprise to any of the viewers, all of whom have been supportive, encouraging, and kind."
“My original curiosity about reality television has waned over the years," Carole added. "I am focusing on TV and writing projects that better suit my more steady temperament... I have worked with amazing producers, made great friends, and I’m thrilled to leave frenemies behind. I will remember this entire experience with delight, humor, and a veracious accuracy."
Radziwill also posted an Instagram poll, asking her followers if they would follow their heart or their bank account. She asked, “If you were doing something that was forcing you to do things that went against your own value system would you walk away regardless of the pay? It's a tough decision.”
After seeing that 80% would walk away, she said, “That’s how I felt this past year too. It’s difficult but life is long and you can’t always play the short game.”
Of Carole’s Instagram post, a source recently told People magazine, “Why not leave gracefully? To post a poll about being forced to do something against your morals and value system, it’s a burned-bridge type of thing to do. Why be so negative? This does not make sense.”
The insider continued, “She is digging in deeper and deeper — and this is all fiction now. Everybody needs to move on. Stop dredging it up. Exit gracefully.”
