Who is Carole Radziwill?

Carole Ann Radziwill (nee DiFalco) was born in New York City, USA on 20 August 1963 – her zodiac sign is Leo, she holds American nationality and is of Italian descent. She’s a journalist, TV personality and author, who’s probably known best for the work which she has done for the division ABC News of the TV network ABC.

Since her wedding in 1994, Carole has been a member of the Polish noble dynasty House of Radziwill.

Early life and education

Carole was raised in New York City by her parents, about whom not a lot is known because she respects their privacy; it’s believed that her father was a door-to-door salesman and that her mother was a high school teacher, while it’s known that they were both Democrats.

Because Carole hasn’t spoken of having any siblings, most of her fans believe her to be an only child.

She became interested in journalism while attending a local high school, and because Carole was amongst the top five students of her class, her parents urged her to pursue a college degree. She was quite active during those four years, as she played various sports with her peers, acted with her school’s drama club, and learnt to play the guitar.

Upon matriculating in 1981, Carole enrolled at Hunter College, from which she graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in English in 1985; she continued her education at New York University, graduating with a Master of Business Administration degree in 1987.

Career as a journalist

Carole launched her career in 1985, when she joined the TV network ABC as an intern, in charge of working in the post-production of their news show “20/20”. After her internship had ended, she was hired to work as a production secretary on their show “Close Up”, in which she attracted the attention of Peter Charles Archibald Ewart Jennings, who hired her to work with his documentary unit, helping to produce his shows on gun control and abortion. While working for Peter, Carole also covered policy stories in India, Haiti and Cambodia.

She travelled to Iraq in 1991, and covered the SCUD Missile attacks which took place during the Gulf War.

In 2003, Carole travelled to Kandahar, Afghanistan to report on the war in the country, spending most of her time there with the American 101st Airborne Division, while her reports were featured in the ABC show “Profiles from the Frontline”.

For her story on land mines in Cambodia, Carole was presented with a Daytime Emmy Award, while she has also won two other Emmys, plus a GLAAD Award and a Peabody Award.

She quit ABC in 1999 to focus on writing her memoir “What Remains: A Memoir of Fate, Friendship and Love”, published in 2005 and becoming a New York Times Best Seller.

Following this success, Carole signed a contract with the magazine “Glamour” and began writing a monthly column called ‘Lunch Date’; she has subsequently interviewed many celebrities and politicians for her column, including actors Alec Baldwin and Antonio Banderas, actress Rachel Weisz, and American politician and sometime lawyer Rudolph William Louis ‘Rudy’ Giuliani.

Carole’s debut novel “The Widow’s Guide to Sex & Dating” was published on 11 February 2014.

Love life and relationships

Carole married the American TV executive and movie maker Prince Anthony Stanislaw Albert Radziwill on 27 August 1994, in a large ceremony attended by many of their friends and family members; the marriage ended when Anthony died of cancer in 1999.

Carole and Anthony didn’t have children together, and it’s widely known that this was because a treatment which Anthony had undergone to fight cancer had left him infertile.

In 2011, Carole met the American singer-songwriter Russ Irwin while they were both starring in the reality show “Real Housewives of New York City”, and they went on to date for a couple of months.

She began dating chef Adam Kenworthy in 2014, and what attracted a lot of attention was the fact that Adam’s 21 year her junior; they split in 2017.

Carole loves to travel, and has been all around the world for both work and pleasure, while her favorite cities to visit seem to be Venice in Italy and London in England.

She’s a lover of animals, with dogs and pigeons being her favorites.

Carole’s physically highly active, and has multiple training sessions at the gym every week, thus her slim figure.

She’s a fan of Hollywood movies – her favorite actor and actress are Will Smith and Kate Winslet, while a couple of her favorite films include “Bad Boys”, “I, Robot” and “I Am Legend”.

Carole’s age is 58. She has long brown and blonde hair and blue eyes, her height is 5ft 8ins (1.7m) and she weighs around 120lbs (60kgs).

Who was Carole’s husband Anthony Radziwill?

Antony was born in Lausanne, Switzerland, on 4 August 1959 – his zodiac sign was Leo, and he held American nationality. He was raised alongside his sister Tina in the US, by their mother Lee Radziwill, the late American socialite and actress, and their father Stanislaw Albrecht ‘Stash’ Radziwill who was notionally a Polish Prince.

Anthony studied at Millfield School before progressing to Choate Rosemary Hall, from which he matriculated in 1977. He continued his education at Boston University, from which he graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in broadcast journalism in 1982.

Anthony joined NBC Sports straight out of college, and soon became an associate producer. He helped cover the Winter Olympics in Calgary, Alberta, Canada in 1988, for which his team won an Emmy Award. Anthony joined ABC News in 1989, working as a producer on their show “Primetime Live”, and the following year saw him win a Peabody Award for his coverage of Nazism in the US.

He was diagnosed with testicular cancer in 1989, and although the treatment helped him, Anthony was left sterile. Not long after he and Carole exchanged vows in 1994, he was once again diagnosed with cancer, and Anthony eventually passed away on 10 August 1999.
