REALI-TEASE: Carole Radziwill Is Leaving ‘RHONY’ And My Heart is Officially Broken

Published

on

Carole is leaving The Real Housewives Of New York. I have had break-ups that hurt less than this! The hip, chic, Soho gal is tossing her golden apple aside to go back to her roots. The award winning journalist and author confirmed with PEOPLE that she will be leaving the hit reality show to return to journalism and producing.

Carole became a Housewife in season 5 after a big cast shake up which resulted in 4 previous housewives exiting the show. Fans immediately took to Carole’s chill demeanor and interesting outlook on life. Her past also proved to be equally as compelling as she married into royalty when she wed Anthony Radzwill, son to the Prince Stanislas Radziwill. Carole was widowed only four weeks when her best friend Carolyn Kennedy, along with John F. Kennedy Jr. and Lauren Bessette, died in a plane crash. All of this heartache molded Carole into one of the most fascinating Housewives of any franchise.

Over the years, Carole befriended many of the ladies on the show but became besties with Bethenny Frankel upon Bethenny’s return in season 7. The two were inseparable and their relationship often sparked jealousy amongst the other cast members. This season however, their relationship has taken a turn for the worst with numerous unsuccessful attempts at reconciliation. I will for ever be team #CARTHENNY though and secretly held out hope that the two would mend their bond and be the gal pals we once knew. Alas, it seems the wounds will remain unhealed seeing as some are blaming the feud for Carole’s exit.

Of the exit, Carole spoke exclusively with People saying:

“After six seasons on Bravo’s RHONY, 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 and 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. Next.”

On Watch What Happens Live: After Show last night, Ramona Singer was asked who she would choose to replace Carole and her answer was so politically correct that an elementary school principal would have given her a gold star.

It will take me months to get over Carole’s exit from my fav reality series but I guess I can use the time to work on real life human interactions. How lame. In the meantime, you can catch The Real Housewives Of New York City on Wednesday’s at 9pm on Bravo.

John Krasinski Virtually Gathers ‘Hamilton’ Cast To Give A Surprise Performance To A Young Fan

Published

These Broadway stars did not throw away their shot to give one young fan a very memorable birthday surprise.

Everyone’s favorite The Office star, John Krasinski (don’t tell Steve Carrell), has been delivering some good news on his new, appropriately titled  YouTube show, Some Good News. With the world practically in suspended animation due to the coronavirus pandemic, Krasinski is using the platform to share some positivity and provide a distraction from the saturation of bad going on right now. You could even say his shows gives viewers a chance to quiet themselves for a bit…turn their minds into A Quiet Place if you will. Gotta love low-hanging fruit. In any event, the latest episode shows Krasinki delivering some really good news to a young fan who was facing a birthday disappointment.

The nine-year old Aubrey had plans to see the mega hit musical Hamilton for her birthday. And in case you’ve been living in suspended animation for much longer than this quarantine, tickets for the hottest show around are still nearly impossible to come by. Imagine how bummed little Aubrey must have been to find that all theaters have been shut down due to the social distancing guidelines. Well, Krasinski had a way to combat that sadness and brought Hamilton to Aubrey.

Krasinski gathered the cast of Hamilton, including stars like Anthony Ramos, Daveed Diggs and Renée Elise Goldsberry and show creator/star/genius Lin-Manuel Miranda, to give a virtual performance to the young fan via Zoom. The icing on the birthday cake? Krasinski also promised to fly Aubrey out to NYC to see the musical live when all of this is over. See…I told you he was The Office favorite.

Takes minute to take in some good today and watch the video below!

Ben Platt Performs A Choral Beyoncé Cover And Of Course It’s Amazing

Published

on

Like Queen B said if you got it, flaunt it.

He made you cry in Dear Evan Hansen. He made you laugh in Pitch Perfect. And lately he has just been impressing the hell out of us with his viral videos. Ben Platt has got some golden pipes and always delivers big feels when he sings. Just a few days ago, Ben and the cast of Dear Evan Hansen went viral for their at home performance of “You Will Be Found,” which I may or may not still be misty eyed from. Well, Ben has gone viral again but this time it won’t provoke tears…unless they are tears of happiness because you never thought a Beyoncé song could get any better yet here we are. Ben and his pal tik-took to TikTok to share a choral version of Beyoncé’s hit song “Check On It.” The duo absolutely nails the cover and my only complaint is that the performance isn’t long enough. How can we convince Ben to do a choral reprisal of Beyoncé’s entire Coachella performance?!

Check out the impressive video below!

Published

on

If the Barefoot Contessa says any hour is cocktail hour then who are we to argue?!

Ina Garten, The Barefoot Contessa herself, took to Instagram to “keep tradition alive” during these stressful, isolated times. What tradition is she most concerned with? One near and dear to all of us of course, cocktail hour! In the two-minute video, Ina gives a tutorial on how to whip up a batch of her favorite cosmopolitans. We all watch the contessa for her signature brand of calm speaking tones and party planning panache and while this video delivers on what we’d expect, Ina throws in a couple funny jokes that you would never see coming. She begins the tutorial by instructing viewers to grab a big pitcher because “you never know who is going to stop by – wait – nobody is going to stop by.” She goes on later to remind viewers that “during a crisis, you know, cocktail hour can be almost any hour.”  Ina wraps up the demonstration by advising viewers to choose the right martini glass when making this drink before pulling out a giant one for herself! Look at Ina getting all loosey-grey-goosey with us!

Enjoy any-hour happy-hour and check out the funny video below!
