Bethenny Frankel and Carole Radziwill feuded from afar as they backstabbed each other on Wednesday’s episode of RHONY.
The 47-year-old Skinnygirl Cocktails founder and Carole, 54, had reached a detente during a group trip to Cartagena, Colombia as their friendship dissolved following constant sniping.
Bethenny told Luann de Lesseps, 53, while they were making lipstick together in NYC that she and Carole were done.

‘We took a wrong turn and can’t get back to the main road,’ Bethenny said during the episode titled There’s No Place Like Home.
She relayed that Carole didn’t want a ‘deep’ relationship and wanted to keep things light and with no responsibility.
‘It’s like burnt marinara sauce, you can’t fix it,’ Bethenny said while adding that some try by adding sugar and vinegar.
‘If it’s burnt from the bottom, you taste it at the top,’ she said.

Bethenny later took Sonja Morgan, 54, with her to learn more about the making of her Skinnygirl Jeans.
She enjoyed her company as Sonja goofed around with denim designer Bill and commented on the washers similar to those in her favorite prison shows.
‘Sonja is a whack job and I am, too. Carole takes herself very seriously and Sonja doesn’t take herself seriously at all,’ Bethenny said during a confessional.

Carole meanwhile badmouthed Bethenny while eating out with Dorinda Medley, 53.
She revealed that Bethenny reached out to the Red Scarf Guy that she previously rejected after he showed an interest in Carole.
‘Bethenny texted him and asked if he was in Miami,’ Carole said.
Carole said she found it odd because Bethenny ‘maligns his character’ and then reached out to him.
‘So two-faced,’ Carole said.
She also admitted that they ‘hit a wall in Cartagena’ and she hasn’t heard from Bethenny since.

Dorinda earlier visited Bethenny to see her newly renovated downtown apartment and was awestruck with her amenities including an ice-maker, massive walk-in closet and private elevator.
Carole during a party for her Cosmopolitan article told former RHONY cast member Heather Thomson that she had to ‘reassess’ her friendship with Bethenny.
‘It was a lot of Bethenny and not enough Carole. She’s not a bad person, just balancng it out,’ Carole said.
‘People that are very self-absorbed sometimes don’t realize it,’ Heather said.

Carole during a confessional took Tinsley to task for her reaction.
