[edit]Personal life

On August 27, 1994, DiFalco married fellow ABC News producer Prince Anthony Radziwill in East Hampton, New York.[2] Radziwill was the only son of prince Stanislas Radziwill and Lee Radziwill[2] (younger sister of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis). He died on August 10, 1999 at age 40 after a five-year battle with cancer.

DiFalco was close friends with Carolyn Bessette-Kennedy, who was married to her husband’s cousin John F. Kennedy, Jr.. Bessette-Kennedy and Kennedy Jr. perished less than four weeks before her husband’s death.


After her husband’s death, Radziwill left ABC News to write a memoir about her childhood, her career at ABC News, as well as her effort to manage her husband’s cancer. What Remains: A Memoir of Fate, Friendship and Love (Scribner, 2005) made the New York Times Best Seller list. A review of the book in the New York Times called it a “bittersweet account” that emphasized “graciousness over disclosure”.[3][4]

In 2006, Radziwill signed with Glamour magazine to write a monthly column called “Lunch Date”. Her Lunch Dates have included former mayor Rudy Giuliani,[5] and Hollywood actorsAntonio Banderas,[6]Rachel Weisz,[7] and Alec Baldwin.[8]

  1. Honey the way you dress, you need someone that will pick out your cloths for you. That outfit you wore on the hike through the woods in Montana. Or that white piece of shit dress you wore to the rodeo in Montana. Omg, I’m surprised one of the other ladies didn’t pull you aside and ask you where you found that. That’s just not normal the way you dress.


  2. Caroles writing a novel thats set in the turn of the century, and it looks like she’s practicing with the old clothing she’s been sporting lately. :o


  3. Carole I have never posted on any Housewives. Had to respond to ugly negative comments Mother of 14 ( 10 adopted) children educated, smart ,voted best dressed in rural IN haha !! You really are a fashion Diva with impeccable taste Beautiful!! You are beautiful amazing smart & classy. I LOVE you! Having nine daughters I would be very proud to have any of them be anything like you!! You are a special and well spoken beautiful women. Loving you from Indiana! Blythe

    I would love to have them all meet you!


  4. These women, the previous posters, wouldn’t know style if it hit them in the face. Carole has more panache and fashion sense than any of the other Housewives in NYC combined- except maybe Kristen.


  5. She dresses for her, which is admirable and not a cookie cutter what fashion tells us to look like. Love her fashion sense. It’s about her taste, not everyone else’s and that takes thought. She is too thin, but maybe it’s her metabolism. Ten pounds would do wonders. Wish that were my problem.


  6. Her Facebook info isn’t quite the same as the published facts about her ABC career – she started at ABC at age 23, but didn’t start out working for Peter Jennings. This is my problem with Carole – she rewrites history to project an image that things were the way she wanted them to be, and not the way they actually were.
