In the first episode of The Real Housewives of New York Season 5 (Season 5, Episode 1: “A New New York”), we saw new girl Carole Radziwill visit Glamour magazine’s editorial offices to discuss an upcoming interview with the Kardashians. But she also mentioned an upcoming book project called The Widow’s Guide to Sex and Dating.

Wetpaint Entertainment recently spoke to Carole about this new book and what we can expect from her as the season continues. 

“The book is a novel,” Carole told us. “It’s not actually a guide. It’s a literary novel about a young girl who’s widowed and starts dating in New York, much like I did 12 years ago when my husband passed away.” Carole was married to Anthony Radziwill, who died in 1992 after battling cancer. 

She continued, “On the show, you’ll see, as I start finishing that book, and the inevitable writer’s block and everything a writer goes through.” Well, hopefully Carole deals with writer’s block by taking more convertible rides with boyfriend Russ Irwin. We wouldn’t mind watching more of those!

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