You鈥檙e absolutely right. Girl works her ass off. She doesn鈥檛 just throw a little party and sprinkle the problem with money. Carole鈥檚 comment sounded snotty.

Yeah, that sounded kind of off... I'm pretty ride or die with Bethenny, so I don't mean to sound like one of THOSE fans, but I'm wondering now if this frost between them wasn't more on Carole's part than Bethenny's. Not that it makes me happy, I really love both of them.

Carole doesn鈥檛 sound mad here at all. It sounds more like since Bethenny tweeted Carole responded so people seeing the tweet would know they can still donate if they want to.

When life gives you lemons, put nine in a bowl!46 points5 months ago

I don't agree, if that were the case, she'd have said, "Anyone who's like to donate can still do so by..." instead of "You can donate...". I read it as snide, but I'm also in PMS mode, so...

No, I think you're right. There was a different way of phrasing that to make it sound less chilly. And I know, it's the internet, so you can't always tell tone of voice, but that's another reason to sound stuff out in your head, or put a smiley face on the end of it, so it's not misinterpreted.

level 3

But it also reads to me like she's trying to call out Betheny for not donating, at least that's what it sounds like.

level 4

I think she's trying to say she donated to Bethenny's Puerto Rico charity efforts and if Bethenny wants, she can match that donation for Animal League.

Maybe it's me when you put "thanks..." it seems to change the tone of what you're posting.

Danielle's Shoe Jizz11 points5 months ago

She said 'matching' which would imply someone should give an equal amount to another. I read it as Bethanny could give a matching donation to Carol's donation to Bethany's. If that makes sense?

Oh, that's true - I hope that's all it is.

I don鈥檛 know what she donated but I鈥檓 pretty sure I can鈥檛 afford to match it...

level 2
He will never emotionally fufill you, ever. Know that 馃毈66 points5 months ago

Bethenny tweeted that Carol and most of the other women donated, just not at the point when the episode aired. And actually I think Carol is kind of responding to this tweet in hers because B is actually the first one to bring up the money Carol was raising for North Shore Animal League. Not only did Carol raise money for them through her marathon pledges but then she matched all those donations and gave that to Be Strong. So let's not go all Shannon Beador and start arguing about who is the most charitable.

level 2
even Louis Vuitton makes mistakes51 points5 months ago

Yeah...I like them both but I don't think Carole had a leg to stand on right here. Bethenny has her issues, but she truly does a lot of charity work. This is messy.

level 2

I find asking for donations difficult too. But, actually being the one to create the charity and make it happen is commendable.

I just don鈥檛 like Carole. She acts above it all like Ariana but participates in mean girl behaviour, injects her lips, clings to a younger man and demands praise/attention.

level 3

This is why she confuses me. She likes to pretend like she鈥檚 very cool girl but her actions are the exact opposite.

level 4
WOW just WOW24 points5 months agoedited 5 months ago

Completely agree. I was so confused last night when she sort of demanded a celebratory party from Dorinda (and then told her Ramona was already throwing her one). As if she wanted to see what sort of reaction Dorinda gave. "JK - Ramona's already throwing me one!" It was weird.

level 4

Dorinda is the cool girl.

I thought Carole wasn鈥檛 invited to Bethenny鈥檚 fundraiser?

She didn鈥檛 invite all the girls, she explained via SM last week. She only invited Ramona and Tinsley since they were the first to support, the charity hosting only bought one table and the rest of the table was for the team.

level 3

It was not a fundraiser it was a gala honoring Bethenny for all she had done.

level 2

I believe B has acknowledged that Carole gave money at some point after the event.

level 2

Umm just remember Carole wasn鈥檛 invited. Bethenny said she invited tinsley and Ramona because they were the quickest to donate and had only limited space because the table was filled with business partners...

level 2

What鈥檚 with the Carole bashing? Bethenney used a tweet abt Carole running the marathon as a chance to self promote and then Carole retweeted it with an opportunity to mention her chosen charity.

I don鈥檛 think she was telling Bethenney to donate money to it.

level 2

I also don't think Bethenny was self promoting here. She was explaining to the viewership -- who are feasting on every scrap of the much-hyped Bethenny/Carole feud -- that she was no there at the marathon to support Carole because she was in Puerto Rico.

I agree that people are being overly severe toward Carole in this thread, but the opposite is also true of people's reactions to Bethenny. Even the show is blatantly building up tension between the two of them. Note that teaser last night before commercial where Dorinda asks Carole if she's staying with Bethenny in the Hamptons, and it's made to look like there's an awkward pause, when the actual scene suggested nothing of the sort.

level 3

She made it about her. I SPENT MY BIRTHDAY HELPING PEOPLE!!! OK, Bethenny. Look amazing, congrats but are you doing it to help people or just talk about it and give your ego a boost b/c her charitable work has now been mentioned as much as Tom all last season.

level 4
Psychic Median4 points5 months ago

Totally agree. I rolled my eyes at the birthday part. If it's really all about the charity and not her ego, why even mention it was her birthday weekend? All she had to say was she was in Puerto Rico - enough said.

level 5
They think I'm a gold digger? I'm wearing TARGET PANTS!3 points5 months ago

I just figured she mentioned it because they typically film at the end of October/beginning of November and a lot of cast members celebrate their birthdays around this time, and many times those birthday celebrations have been shown on-camera. Bethenny, Ramona and Sonja all celebrate their birthdays in November, and Dorinda in December. I didn't think too much of it.

level 2
I am the Devil. And don't you forget it.11 points5 months ago

I guess she鈥檚 the one from the franchise the hive mind is turning on. There鈥檚 always one who people on the sub bash relentlessly all season, with more focus than the other women; Scheana, Dorit/Teddi, Kim Z, Peggy, etc. Guess from NY it鈥檚 going to be Carole. Hopefully we don鈥檛 get the same million appearance focused posts like there were for the others

level 3
Roman's limp penis4 points5 months ago

I remember that one week where there were multiple Scheana posts a day. That was way too much for me.

level 1

I'm surprised people are inferring that Carole's tweet was in any way a comment on Bethenny's charitableness. I don't think Carole was trying to make it a competition, especially since she obviously knows she doesn't have the resources or industriousness to come anywhere close.

But I also think that Bethenny's tweet was rather shady for a friend (doesn't really recognise or congratulate Carol, makes it about one of her own-amazing!-accomplishments instead, just says it would have been nice to go to the marathon, not to see or celebrate her pal). This isn't what a close friend would tweet about a friend's accomplishment and Carol was probably responding this way bc she felt the decay of their friendship.

level 2

Well they aren鈥檛 friends anymore so it makes sense that her tweet wouldn鈥檛 be warm. Also, I think B tweeted because people are saying she missed the marathon because of their rift, so she was pointing out that that wasn鈥檛 the case. Carole鈥檚 tweet was definitely shady, but again, they aren鈥檛 friends anymore so she can say whatever she wants. I just don鈥檛 understand Carole. 馃し馃徏鈥嶁檧锔

level 2

What do you mean Carole doesn't have the resources, isn't she the wealthiest housewife on RHONY?

level 3
you're a cook, not a chef, and it's creepy16 points5 months ago

I think her net worth estimates are way over blown. There is no way Anthony had that much money to leave. His dad died broke and his mother lives off husbands

level 4

I expect that even if those figures are anywhere close accurate -- and I don't think they are -- Carole's wealth is probably not liquid. She can't just withdraw six figures on a whim. It's probably tied up in investments, and she's drawing off them.

level 4
She is the puppet and everyone else is the master.1 point5 months ago

Thank you! I was raised in New England with the Kennedy鈥檚 being almost a religion. I thought I was the only one who knew about Lee鈥檚 past lol.

level 3

Wow, to be honest, I'm shocked by some of these articles about estimated net worth! I would not have guessed (poshmark lol?).

But I still think that Carole clearly doesn't have a real business or connections or drive/capacity to lead an organization. I meant resources and industriousness in a larger sense than just money (all of these women clearly have enough money to be charitable lol). I think my general point still stands that she's aware that Bethenny is a great business women and has done wonderful things for Puerto Rico and isn't looking or trying to compete. I think she's just responding to the friend relationship subtext.

level 4

Makes sense. Yeah, I was surprised by Caroles wealth when I found out too, especially since she keeps that busted-ass couch

level 5
23 points5 months ago

She got the couch re-upholstered. I think she kept it as it was for so long because it had sentimental meaning and a connection to her late husband. I remember reading about the couch in her book.

level 6

Plus, that material was never-to-be-found-again vintage, so that figured into it too, I think. Although, in the condition it was in, I get why she finally had it reupholstered.

level 7

That material is still made to this day! It is just crazy expensive, IIRC it is around 2k a square yard. Ooh I found it on sale (still crazy expensive) Carole鈥檚 sofa pictured on the site: http://www.iluvfabrix.com/products/silkfabric/9035/1/

level 8

Ooooh, I had no idea they still made it, I thought it was old vintage! I love that picture, it's beautiful!

EDIT: $547 a YARD?? (Clutches chest) "It's the big one, Elizabeth! I'm coming to join you, baby!"

level 9
She is the puppet and everyone else is the master.5 points5 months ago

The sofa was old and vintage, it belonged to Lee Radziwill and was featured in Elle Decor or one of those magazines. Truman Capote and Andy Warhol sat on that couch. She gave it to Anthony...then it became Carole鈥檚.

level 10
There's a big wide ocean of men & cocktails & things to steal.2 points5 months agoedited 5 months ago

Oh, I know, I remember Carole's stories about it. Oh, the tales that sofa could probably tell!

I always got the impression that the reason she left that old fabric on there for so long was because of its connection to Anthony and his mom. I think she finally just got to the point where it was so beat up, she had no choice but to reupholster it.

I know I used it for throw pillows. Lol at your reference, my dad used to love that show!

I'm so over this "feud" already. Love them both, but Saint B's fans tend to be hyper vicious and way OTT, same with Kenya's. I'm a Carole fan, I just get high and listen to records!

Bethenny can be maddening but in this particular snit I'm Team Bethenny. Sorry, Carole.

level 1

Did anyone else get the feeling Carole was being a bit messy in last nights episode? (Ep. 2) I don鈥檛 know why, but for whatever reason I was a little surprised how gossipy she sounded when telling Tinsley everything Sonja said. I can鈥檛 remember what else happened but there was something else that just seemed betchy.... was she the only who told Dorinda that Sonja said she looked fat?

level 2
Original Poster7 points5 months ago

I felt it too, not really bad but she is getting to the same level of pettiness as the other ladies where before I always felt like she would just make funny snarky remarks off to the side. It was her telling Dorinda, Sonja said she looked fat, asking for a party to be thrown for her (very Ramona of her).. I felt like there was more but I can鈥檛 remember.

level 1

I think Bethany is being more "smug" aka confident this season because she's sick of the women dogging on her and not being happy for her success.

level 2
They think I'm a gold digger? I'm wearing TARGET PANTS!4 points5 months ago

I'm surprised with as much emotional bullshit and abuse as Bethenny has dealt with in her life, that she hasn't grasped the fact that some people are just going to be unhappy haters.

level 1
3 points5 months ago

I was going to be open about this feud. I like Bethenny AND Carole but sorry CaroleDawg, you ain't winning this one. All the little jokes about "doesn't anyone care I'm running" were so obviously not jokes. She's literally butthurt that Bethenny was in PR and is going to run with that. It's not a good look at all. 2 episodes in and it's Carole who is looking like the villain this season.

level 1

Lol shut up, Carole

level 1

Facts, not self-promotion. Who else can bring attention to charities and causes the masses aren't aware of? Bethenny bringing awareness to a desperate Puerto Rico and Carole to a group helping animals? People, grow up.
