Widely recognized for her role on Bravo’s popular drama-based reality series, The Real Housewives of New York City since 2011, Carole first started her career as a journalist with ABC News. While working for the documentary unit, Peter Jennings Reporting, she not only reported on foreign stories in Cambodia, Haiti, India, but was also stationed in Israel during the 1990 Gulf War. In 2001, she spent six weeks in Afghanistan embedded with the 101st Airborne Division at the U.S. military base in Kandahar.
Carole went on to produce stories for several magazine shows including 20/20, Primetime Live, and DayOne on topics ranging from celebrity profiles to medical breakthroughs in cancer research – and even the Menendez Brothers murder trial. Her story on Vietnam Veteran Bobby Muller’s anti-landmine campaign in Cambodia would ultimately earn Radziwill the first of three EMMY Awards for her work at ABC.
With a career that spans nearly two decades, her additional accolades include an RFK Humanitarian Award, as well as a GLAAD Award for her profile on Billy Bean, the first openly gay baseball player. Carole left ABC News in 2002 to write her first book, What Remains: A Memoir of Fate, Friendship and Love. Published in 2005, What Remains spent twenty weeks on The New York Times Best-Sellers list.
In 2008, she signed with Conde Nast’s Glamour Magazine to pen a monthly column called Lunch Date, where she interviewed celebrated people from the fields of politics, pop culture, media, and fashion. In 2014, she formed production company Radzi Media, and her second book, The Widow’s Guide to Sex & Dating, was optioned by Critical Content for development.
In addition to her professional achievements, Carole received a BA in English Literature from CUNY Hunter College and is an MBA graduate of New York University’s Stern School of Business. She lives in New York City with her two cats and mini goldendoodle named Baby. She is also the proud president of her condo board.
