Carole Radziwill is one of the new additions to Real Housewives of New York and although she is not currently an actual wife, she has one heck of a title -- Princess! Carole is royalty, but unlike her co-star Countess LuAnn de Lesseps, she has chosen not to call herself 'Princess Carole.'
Even though her and Countess LuAnn have different outlooks on their titles, Carole is defending LuAnn's use of her title. In her Bravo blog, Carole says, "If LuAnn wants to use her title she should use it. People should chill out, and let her." In an earlier blog, Carole had said that she thinks that the use of titles in the US is "silly."
LuAnn has been poked fun of in the past for using her title since she is technically no longer a Countess. Her and The Count divorced a couple of years ago and while she said goodbye to him, she isn't yet ready to drop her title of The Countess.
While Sonja and some of the other ladies refer to LuAnn as Countess, Carole prefers to simply call her by her first name. "I call LuAnn, 'LuAnn' and she doesn't seem to mind." She adds, "LuAnn and I have a few bumps and scrapes along the way, but not about her letting people call her Countess."
