Last week Real Housewives of New York City star Carole Radziwill announced that she had decided to leave the reality show after six seasons to focus on her journalism career and other various projects. But her frenemy Bethenny Frankel has taken to Twitter to let fans know that Radziwill isn’t being “truthful” about her exit from the show.
Many fans suspected that the 54-year-old Radziwill left RHONY because of her ongoing feud with Frankel, but the SkinnyGirl mogul’s tweet implies that her former friend didn’t make the decision to leave.
Bravo has reasons for not asking hwives to return. It’s based on research & focus groups & YOU. Aside from 3 years I left, no RHONY cast member has ever quit. One saying they chose to depart & attributing it to me is fiction. It’s healthier to be truthful about a hard situation.

The 47-year-old didn’t use the word “fired,” but it looks like Frankel is implying that RHONY producers didn’t ask Radziwill to return for season 11.
The tweet came just after Bravo aired the infamous ‘boat ride from hell” episode, which fans had been waiting for months. In one of the scariest moments in Housewives franchise history, the RHONY cast made a trip to Cartagena, Colombia, and the trip left the women “crying out for their lives.”
Back in February, Ramona Singer, Luann de Lesseps, Sonja Morgan, Dorinda Medley, and Tinsley Mortimer — along with Frankel and Radziwill — made headlines when they took a boat trip after a day of fun in the sun on the private island of Kalunga.
Regardless of whose side you're on, Carole shows no emotion about her friendship with Bethenny being over and Bethenny is clearly in pain over it. It's so hard to watch. #RHONY

The boat appeared to be nice and had glasses of pink champagne waiting for them when they boarded the vessel to head to the island. Despite the in-fighting between de Lesseps and Medley, and between Radziwill and Frankel, the women enjoyed the hour-and-a-half ride to the island with sunbathing and dancing on the bow.
The women were also laughing and having a good time on the island, and they went for a swim in the crystal-clear blue water. But things quickly changed when the coast guard told them they needed to head back because the “sea is getting choppy.”
They quickly got on the boat, even though the women weren’t happy about leaving, and as they headed home, the boat started jumping up and down so intensely that Singer started screaming. Frankel called it “the boat ride from hell,” and Morgan admitted that she peed her swimsuit.

Others started ducking for cover from the table and chairs that came flying down, and Frankel attempted to comfort Radziwill while she vomited into a bucket.
The cast and crew eventually made it to the shore safely, but they later explained that they were lucky the boat didn’t capsize.
Carole Radziwill and Bethenny Frankel’s relationship seems to be over, although rumors are swirling that the Season 10 reunion will find them butting heads again.
New episodes of the Real Housewives of New York City air Wednesday night on Bravo.
