Bethenny Frankel‘s outspoken personality and no-nonsense attitude made her a star on The Real Housewives of New York City. But her “mention it all” mouth might have gone a little too far with Carole Radziwill.
On Wednesday’s episode, the 47-year-old Skinnygirl mogul admitted to fellow New York Housewife Dorinda Medley that she might have crossed the line with Radziwill when she criticized her on-again, off-again boyfriend Adam Kenworthy.
