After suggesting last summer that she and Tinsley weren’t really friends, the former Real Housewives of New York City star set the record straight before dishing on her current relationship with Adam, her thoughts about the mental health of her ex-co-stars, and her future television plans.
“I haven’t heard from Tinsley since the day we filmed the reunion,” Carole confirmed on the Juicy Scoop. “She was playing up [a close friendship on RHONY]. She didn’t want to say that what [Bethenny Frankel] was saying wasn’t actually true.”
During Carole’s final season on the show, Bethenny made it seem as if she was absolutely devastated after Carole seemingly replaced her with Tinsley. However, as Carole explained, she and Tinsley didn’t spend that summer together, as Bethenny had suggested. In fact, aside from their time filming a commercial with Tinsley’s fiancé, Scott Kluth, and a trip to Spain, there wasn’t much to their relationship.
“We were working together and filming together and I liked her.. I didn’t know her that well and I happened to fix her up with a guy I knew,” Carole explained of her actual relationship with her former co-star.
As for her relationship with Adam, Carole said the two of them are friends and nothing more.
“We’re really good friends and he’s great,” she said.
Carole then noted that while the two of them aren’t working on a vegan cookbook together any longer, Adam may eventually publish the book himself.
“We play well together but we didn’t work well together. I think he might do it eventually. He’s super talented. I think for him… I have a little experience in publishing so it wasn’t as daunting. I think for him, it was too much too soon in his career,” she suspected.
Moving onto Ramona Singer, Carole agreed with Heather that a lot of things go over her head before stating that Ramona’s kookiness is what makes her “endearing.”
“That’s endearing about Ramona,” Carole said. “I saw her the other day and she’s exactly the same. We had lunch. She’s great. She’s funny [and] she’s quirky.”
“She doesn’t have serious mental illness like some of the other Housewives… like serious emotional problems,” Carole added, taking a dig at her former co-stars.
According to Carole, who has sworn off the idea of returning to RHONY, she may soon be headed back to television with a potential TV show based on her book, What Remains: A Memoir of Fate, Friendship and Love. She is also currently adapting her second book, The Widow’s Guide to Sex and Dating, into a different TV show with a different name and added characters.
Carole may also do a podcast inspired by The Widow’s Guide.
