Carole Radziwill Defends Countess LuAnn’s Use of Her Title: “People Should Chill Out”

New Real Housewives of New York Housewife Carole Radziwill (who is technically a Princess) got a lot of attention when she said it was “silly” for people to use their titles, much like how LuAnn does. However, despite her poo-pooing of royal titles, Carole thinks people should lay off the Countess.

“If LuAnn wants to use her title she should use it,” Carole wrote on her weekly BravoTV blog following Season 5, Episode 4: “Diss-Invite.” “People should chill out, and let her. LuAnn and I have a few bumps and scrapes along the way, but not about her letting people call her Countess.”

Looks like Cool Carole is too cool to even get upset about LuAnn’s uncool use of her title! However, Carole does go on to explain why she doesn’t like to refer to herself as a Princess:

I do not call myself or ask anyone else to call me Princess. I used it for the tag line in the show, but that was in fun -- I couldn't resist the word play. I married a man who had a title, but that doesn't represent who I am. My identity comes from what I've earned in my life. I'm as All-American as they come -- a product of the American Dream, really, and I'm proud of that. I respect my late husband's legacy and the legacy of his family. They have a rich and storied history that goes back centuries and is an integral part of their country. But that belonged to Anthony and his family, not to me.

Carole goes on to say that the only thing that really matters is someone’s character, and we couldn’t agree more!

The Real Housewives of New York airs Mondays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Bravo.
