Naturally, Carole keenly felt the loss of John Jr. and her friend Carolyn. And if her name sounds familiar, it may be because of her part in Bravo’s reality series The Real Housewives of New York City. It’s worth noting, though, that Carole landed on the show only after a long career as a journalist and writer. In fact, that same path had once brought her together with her husband, Anthony Radziwill, towards the end of the 1980s.
At that time, Carole was employed by ABC as a reporter, while Anthony served as a network executive. And after the pair met, they started dating; they even decided to tie the knot in the early 1990s. But, unfortunately, Carole and Anthony received some tough news before they were able to say “I do.”
It turned out that Anthony had cancer – a diagnosis he received in 1994. And the prognosis was particularly grim, according to an essay that his wife penned for the Daily Mail in 2019. “When I married my husband in 1994, he had a death sentence,” Carole wrote.
