The fallout between Bethenny Frankel and Carole Radziwill is getting darker by the day. The former friends have been fighting all season long on the Real Housewives of New York, but the Skinnygirl mogul took things to another level by taking a petty shot at Radziwill on social media.
This past week, Frankel posted a picture of herself relaxing poolside on an inflatable watermelon in recognition of National Watermelon Day. The image of Frankel rocking a bikini is nothing new, but there is a lot more to the photo than meets the eye.
The picture is actually a throwback from a long time ago and was taken by Radziwill’s former lover, Adam Kenworthy, whom Frankel tagged in the post.
Given how the ladies are feuding on RHONY, the post was a clear jab at Radziwill. In fact, according to The Hollywood Gossip, inside sources claim that Frankel was deliberately throwing shade at her former co-star and that she hasn’t talked to Kenworthy in well over a year.
“Adam and Bethenny are not friends. Carole and Bethenny are not friends. Bethenny’s taken it to a whole new level. It’s like, leave a bitch alone,” the insider dished.
Frankel, of course, is not the only one hurling insults these days. Radziwill recently took a subtle jab at Frankel when she officially announced her exit from the reality franchise. Radziwill did not mention Frankel by name in her departure statement, but she did say that she is happy to “leave frenemies” in the dust. Considering how they used to be best buds, Radziwill’s statement was a clear dig at her RHONY co-star.
Although RHONY fans are convinced that Frankel was shading Radziwill with the watermelon post, reps for the reality star denied the rumors. A rep of Frankel claims that she was not thinking about Radziwill when she shared the image on social media.

Frankel apparently does not have a lot of photos of herself and watermelons, and she tagged Kenworth because he was the one who took the pic. Instead of throwing shade at Radziwill, Frankel was merely giving credit where it was due.
Carole Radziwill has not commented on Frankel’s latest social media activity. There has been some speculation that Radziwill was fired from the show because she couldn’t get along with Bethenny Frankel, rumors she had vehemently denied.
New episodes of the Real Housewives of New York air Wednesday nights on Bravo.
