We know that beautiful new Real Housewives of New York cast mate Carole Radziwill is dating rock star Russ Irwin, but who knew that she also used to romance one of the most handsome men in the world?

On this week’s episode of RHONY, Sonja Morgan let slip that Carole may have slept with George Clooney.

“Look at the a** on Carole,” Sonja said while admiring Carole’s rear on the beach. “No wonder Clooney did her for a year.”

Granted, Sonja was loosened by one (or two) shots of banana rum, so she could have just been exaggerating, but the idea doesn’t sound that far-fetched to us. With her beachy waves, skinny little arms, and intelligence, Carole totally strikes us as Clooney’s type. Plus, we know that Carole used to work for Leslie Cockburn, an American journalist and mother of Olivia Wilde, who also happens to be a friend of the Cloonz, so the two have probably crossed paths. And what man would pass up the chance to flirt with Cool Carole?

Carole’s pal Aviva Drescher played off the Clooney accusation. Aviva tweeted: “What was Clooney doing for you for a year? Your taxes?” Ha!

For what's it's worth, a quick search for Geroge Clooney and Carole turns up zero romantic results. Hmm.

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