Carole Radziwill says WWHL polls are rigged & Bethenny threw friendship away

Carole Radziwill might have quit the Real Housewives of New York City, but she is not going away quietly!

After first accusing Bravo host Andy Cohen of being “full of sh-t” and showing favoritism to her castmate Bethenny Frankel, Carole is now revealing that the polls from Andy’s talk show, Watch What Happens Live, are in fact rigged! Say what?!

Following the second part of the RHONY reunion, a fan took to Instagram to inform Carole that most viewers were on Bethenny’s side, citing a WWHL poll in which 71% of those polled apparently said they were team Bethenny.

Well, Carole had her clap back ready, stating the polls are completely fake!

She wrote, “Lol. His polls are 7 people in the control room. Even when I won them, I would laugh. We understand it’s for TV.”  A screenshot of that exchange is below.

Over on Twitter, Carole continued responding to fans when it came to her ongoing feud with Bethenny.

She first responded to a fan who criticized her for not consoling Bethenny, whose on-again off-again boyfriend, Dennis Shields, recently passed away.

Carole tweeted, “Bethenny and I are not friends. If we were she knows where I’d be. But she threw all that away last year for a TV show.”

Carole also addressed a fan who accused her of being a bully, by stating she is not the one lunging at people at the reunion.  She appears to be referencing Bethenny – who was shown getting in Carole’s face and towering over her in the reunion previews.

She wrote, “Yes I raised my voice in defense but I didn’t openly mock or lunge at another woman so there’s that. Choose your hero’s carefully.”

And when a fan tweeted their support to Carole and expressed sadness over her exit from the show, Carole stated she felt she had to quit because the show had simply gotten too dark.

“Thanks. I adore you too. It was def time for me to go…it got so dark, no?,”she tweeted. “I’m shocked it was 6 years. I figured I’d do it for 2 years & they’d be like wait you don’t fit in here at all. It was a hoot most of the time though.”

Finally, Carole responded to the speculation by some RHONY fans that she, alongside Ramona Singer and Dorinda Medley, formed an alliance before the reunion and planned to go after Bethenny.

A fan tweeted to her, “Shouting “the dream team”, and telling your comrades “I got your back” sounds like a bully to me. I didn’t see anyone else forming alliances. Some people are strong enough to stand alone.”

Carole responded: “No that sounds like friends who have each other’s backs. Interesting that you don’t recognize that.” She later added, “Perhaps your friends were never subject to the barrage of insults and mocking that my friends were about to endure. You don’t recognize that.”

The third and final part of the RHONY reunion airs tonight on Bravo at 8/7c.
