Carole Radziwill (born August 20, 1963) is an American reality television personality best known for appearing on The Real Housewives of New York.
She was born and raised in New York City. She earned a B.A. at Hunter College and an M.B.A. at New York University.
Carole began her news career at ABC in New York in 1986 as an intern in post production for 20/20, a news magazine show but was later assigned to "Close Up" as a production secretary. She also worked for Peter Jennings' documentary unit, producing shows on abortion and gun control, and covering foreign policy stories in Columbia, Haiti and India.
In 1991, she was stationed in Israel and reported on the SCUD missile attacks during the Gulf War. In 2003, during the War on Afghanistan, she spent six weeks in Khandahar, embedded with an infantry unit of the 101st Airborne Division. She produced segments for an ABC-TV show called Profiles From the Frontline. She has won several awards, including three Emmys, one for a story she produced on land mines in Cambodia, and a Peabody.
Carole eventually left ABC News to write a memoir about her childhood, her career at ABC News, as well as her effort to manage her adult personal problems. What Remains: A Memoir of Fate, Friendship and Love made the New York Times Best Seller list.
She also signed with Glamour magazine in 2006 to write a monthly column called "Lunch Date". She sold her first novel, The Widow's Guide to Sex & Dating, in a high six-figure deal to Holt Publishing. She has also released two more books. She starred on The Real Housewives of New York in Seasons 5-8.
She married her husband, Anthony Radziwill on August 27, 1994. Anthony was the only son of Prince Stanislas Radziwill of Poland by his wife, Lee Bouvier (younger sister of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis). Through this marriage, Carole is customarily accorded the title princess, although she rarely uses it. Anthony died on August 10, 1999 at the age of 40 after a five year battle with cancer.
