After Season 10 of Real Housewives of New York City wrapped this past summer, Carole Radziwill announced that she was leaving the show after six seasons and promised fans she would continue her career in journalism. Now, Radziwill has shared on social media some specifics about her big plans for the future.
According to Bravo’s The Daily Dish, Radziwill first announced that she was “thrilled to work with the team at Verve,” and she will be involved with several different projects in development in the scripted, unscripted, digital, and publishing spaces across their multiple platforms.

Here's a snapchat of a special day at URI. My gracious host Adam Roth, Dir. Of the Harrington School, took me on a campus tour. Then I met with a select group of young girls interested in journalism careers. Next I had a fascinating conversation with Dick Harrington, founder of the school, about the state of print media. Then a quick outfit change and off to dinner to meet student moms and faculty including the very impressive University President David Dooley. I ended my night with a lecture on journalism, but mostly told crazy stories from the road. There were so many, it was fun to go down memory lane. 😂😂 Link to my website in Bio for full lecture. An incredible day meeting with students who care about the state of the world and are making plans to make their mark in it. Thank you. #inspiring @uriharringtonschool @camanpour
Radziwill also recently revealed that she would be giving a lecture at the University of Rhode Island Harrington School of Communication and Media. She is thinking of calling the lecture “From Real to Reality,” and it will include her 15-year career in journalism, publishing, and reality TV. She says the “Real” in the title is real-life news stories, and the “Reality” is the reality entertainment TV show she starred in.
Before she was a star on RHONY, Radziwill worked at ABC News starting in 1988. She worked on Peter Jennings’ documentary unit, as well as 20/20 and Primetime Live. During her time at the network, Radziwill won three Emmy Awards, a GLAAD Award, and a Robert F. Kennedy Humanitarian Award.
She is also a New York Times bestselling author, writing her memoir What Remains: A Memoir of Fate, Friendship, and Love.
Since leaving RHONY, the only lady on the show Radziwill has stayed in touch with is Ramona Singer. The 55-year-old says that Singer is a good friend, and she knows how to create and maintain friendships. However, that is the only friendship Radziwill will see outside of the show because she isn’t close to any of the other women.

It's nearly here…..the end of summer and the end of #RHONY season ten! Watch tonight on @bravotv. I can barely believe I lasted six seasons I was sure you'd all tire of me after one — and some of you did. 😜 I was happy to have participated in this cultural happening called Reality TV. Real Housewives was, by far, one of the strangest, funniest, craziest, and most unusual experiences I've ever had. I'm just glad I don't ever again have to explain what I meant when I said I had "5 good summers left " I was being witty, sarcastic, cheeky!! I actually have 7 more left. Happy summer 2018. ❤️
Radziwill got closer to Singer during Season 10 when she started feuding with former bestie Bethenny Frankel. It makes sense that Radziwill no longer talks to Frankel. But, what is surprising to fans is that she isn’t keeping in touch with Tinsley Mortimer.
Radziwill and Mortimer used to go on double dates together. And, in May, the two traveled to Dubai.
Carole Radziwill says that she will not do reality TV again in the same way, but she thinks it is an interesting medium and cultural phenomenon. However, once she has experienced something, she is ready to move on to other things.
The new season of Real Housewives of New York City will premiere on Bravo in the spring of 2019.
