Carole Radziwill Says She Walked Away from Something That Went Against Her Values After RHONY Exit

Carole Radziwill is asking fans what they would do if they were in her shoes.

On Friday, just days after announcing her departure from the Real Housewives of New York, the reality star polled her Instagram followers to see whether they would follow their hearts or put their bank accounts first.

In an Instagram Story, Radziwill, 54, posed a question to her fans, “If you were doing something that was forcing you to do things that went against your own value system would you walk away regardless of the pay? Its a tough decision.”

After fans overwhelming voted “yes” on her survey, the journalist wrote, “So 80% would walk away from something that went against their own values.”

It was a decision, she told fans, that she was forced to make recently.

“That’s how I felt this past year too. It’s difficult but life is long and you can’t always play the short game,” the star added.

It appears she is very happy with that decision, as the best-selling author was beaming in the photograph.

The smiling star looked chic but casual in a pair of ripped jeans and a white T-shirt as she soaked in some sun during her vacation in Aspen, Colorado.

“I am sure this does not come as a surprise to any of the viewers, all of whom have been supportive, encouraging, and kind. My original curiosity about reality television has waned over the years and I am focusing on TV and writing projects that better suit my more steady temperament,” Radziwill told PEOPLE in a statement on Wednesday.

PEOPLE learned that her ongoing feud with Bethenny Frankel also influenced her choice, as indicated by the portion of her statement in which she said she was “thrilled to leave frenemies behind.”

“They never seemed to be able to reconcile. The show couldn’t go on another season with both of them at each other’s throats. And Bethenny’s an OG. She’s been there since the beginning. She’s a , but she gives the show a lot of energy,” a source tells PEOPLE. “There’s no way they’re going to do it without her. Last time she left, the show went to hell.”

However, one production source insists that as far as producers are concerned, Radziwill could have chosen to stay: “She was not pushed to leave. She left on her own accord.”

She ended her statement with sincerity and wit. “I have worked with amazing producers, made great friends, and I’m thrilled to leave frenemies behind,” Radziwill wrote. “I will remember this entire experience with delight, humor, and a veracious accuracy. Next.”

In RHONY‘s tenth season, airing now, Radziwill has had a pretty epic fallout with Frankel, though she’s still friendly with Tinsley Mortimer, Ramona Singer, Dorinda Medley, Sonja Morgan and Luann de Lesseps.

On Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen Wednesday, Ramona Singer told Cohen she’s “sad” to see Radziwill go.

“I love Carole inside and out. I think she’s really warm, special, down to earth, truthful, giving, kind, supportive of women, genuine, smart fabulous. I’m like, ‘Wow.’ I’m going to miss not being with her doing the next season. It’s going to be a void,” Singer said, shaking her head. “This is going to be a void for me,” Singer added.

Brandon Maxwell on Gaga at the Super Bowl, Family Values and Fear of Watching His Runway Show

Anyone who was at Brandon Maxwell’s spring 2017 show at the Russian Tea Room remembers Riley Montana, the model who gleefully shimmied and twirled down his runway. If she caught the audience’s eye, she made a big impression on Maxwell, too, who refuses to watch his own runway show out of “panic.” “I knew she did it to make me smile,” he said.
In conceptualizing his second campaign, he wanted to capture the spirit of family and how important it is to stay close to your roots, even when your life changes significantly — like Maxwell, who’s from a small town in Texas. He chose to shoot Montana in her childhood home in Detroit with members of her family, including her aunt who raised her and her sister who had just had a baby. In one shot, she’s sitting on the sofa next to a TV that’s playing her runway moment in Maxwell’s last show. In another shot, she’s sashaying through the living room while her family looks on. “They’re so proud of her,” Maxwell said.

Other Families’ Values

2015 may well go down in history as the year that traditional family values (which frequently hide behind the purported threat of an imaginary “War Against Christians”) finally got exposed for the perversions of its loudest proponents’ hypocrisy.

  • An increasing number of homophobic religious leaders and politicians have been exposed in their pursuit of gay sex. In Michigan, Reverend Matthew Makela of St. John’s Lutheran Church in Midland (who reportedly urged a gay teenager to kill himself) resigned from his post after being outed when another man recognized his picture in Makela’s member profile on Grindr.
  • The former Speaker of the House of Representatives, Dennis Hastert, was exposed as the victim of a blackmail scheme by a former student who claimed he had been molested by Hastert (who was then the school’s wrestling coach).
  • After the shit hit the fan with news that Josh Duggar (formerly Executive Director of the lobbying arm of the viciously anti-gay Family Research Council) had allegedly molested five young girls — including four of his sisters — TLC stopped broadcasting episodes of the Duggar family’s reality television show, 19 Kids and Counting.
  • Several women who had been raised in Evangelical families went public with descriptions of how some religious homeschooling programs foster a climate of rape based on the theory that “If it bleeds, it breeds.”
  • Christian Evangelist scumbag Franklin Graham pulled his organization’s funds from Wells Fargo Bank after viewing its gay-positive commercial on television and transferred them to BB&T (another bank which also supports the LGBT community).
  • Although a recent, provocative article in The New York Times entitled Schools Fear Impact of Gay Marriage Ruling on Tax Status pondered the results of the Supreme Court’s decision on same-sex marriage, it contained no mention of the numerous LGBT teachers, coaches, and school administrators who have lost their jobs at Catholic schools because their lifestyles clashed with school policy. Nor did it ask if those parties might be able to sue their former employers for lost wages.
  • The Advocate published a mind-blowing article identifying Hialeah’s own Sgt. Jesus Menocal, Jr. as a Florida Cop Suspended After Allegedly Forcing Lesbian Teen to Strip, Making Sexual Gestures. The details of his alleged sexual harassment are particularly nauseating.
  • California Superior Court Judge Raymond Cadei ruled that a proposed initiative by seemingly homophobic attorney Matt McLaughlin entitled the The Sodomite Suppression Act (which would have mandated the execution of all homosexuals) is patently unconstitutional on its face.

Franklin Graham consistently rages against having the so-called gay agenda crammed down his throat. But as a life-long atheist, I wonder how Graham would react if confronted with the number of Americans who are sick and tired of having Christianity crammed down their throats.

World cinema often provides a startling contrast to America’s pathological religious hysteria by simply removing Christianity from the equation or letting its characters act like true Christians. Two recent screenings for Bay area audiences were remarkable for demonstrating the humanity of true family values (as practiced in other cultures) in ways that American conservatives might find difficult to comprehend.

In 2013, filmmaker Josh Kim’s 10-minute short entitled Draft Day was screened as part of the Frameline Film Festival. Kim returned to San Francisco for Frameline 39 with an expanded version of his short, an 80-minute full-length feature entitled How To Win At Checkers (Every Time). Kim’s new movie (his debut as the director of a full-length feature film) is based on two short stories (At The Café Lovely and Draft Day) from Sightseeing by Rattawut Lapcharoensap.

2015-06-30-1435689443-48970-checkersposter.jpg

Unlike the United States Armed Forces, in Thailand all men who turn 21 must participate in an annual draft lottery which determines whether or not they will be inducted into the military. The young man who draws a red card is required to serve for two years; anyone who draws a black card is exempted from military service. As the filmmaker explains:

“Before coming to Thailand, I had never actually seen this process before. And while I was writing, it was still unclear what the rules were regarding MTF transgenders. So in 2013, I made a short documentary called Draft Day which followed two transgender women on the day of their own draft. This research helped immensely and provided a strong reference for our team as we had to recreate our own draft for the film.”

Kim’s new film begins on the morning of the lottery as 21-year-old Oat (Toni Rakkaen) remembers how, as a child, he had tried to save his older brother, Ek (Thira “Um” Chutikul), from being drafted. Ek helped to support himself, his younger brother (Ingkarat “Ryu” Damrongsakkul), his stepsister Kwan (Warattha Kaew-on), and the Auntie (Vatanya “Jim” Thamdee) who helped to raise the two brothers after they had been orphaned.

Ek’s two closest companions are Kitty (Natarat “Nut” Lakha), a smart and sexy ladyboy, and Jai (Arthur “Jin” Navarat), a lighter-skinned young man from an upper middle class family. Ek’s boyfriend since high school, Jai has always been welcomed as a member of Ek’s family whenever he is invited to stay for dinner.

drive his motorcycle in How To Win At Checkers (Every Time)

Like many youngsters, Oat idolized his older brother and (even though his feet could barely reach the pedals) longed for the day when Ek would let him drive his motorcycle. On Oat’s birthday, when Ek treats his kid brother to the exotic treat of a cheeseburger at a fast food restaurant (bad choice), it is the first time that Oat encounters Junior (Anawat “Boat” Patanawanichkul), the bratty son of a local drug lord.

In his child-like innocence, Oat has no way of knowing that his older brother earns the money that supports their family by working in a brothel run by Junior’s father. That discovery proves to be a powerful coming-of-age moment for the little boy. In his director’s statement, Kim writes that:

“The relationship between siblings, more so even than that between parents and children, is one of the most important and long-lasting relationships that a person could have in his or her lifetime. The stories in the book Sightseeing (by Rattawut Lapcharoensap) exposed me to a world that I had never experienced. Yet, the characters were people that I could easily relate to — especially the two brothers in the short story At the Café Lovely. The dynamic between the siblings deepened my understanding of how poverty, politics, and the loss of innocence can make or break such a precious bond. And while my brother never took me on a night out like the one in the story did, maybe this was for the better — for the things I never saw and the desperate things I never learned to do — at such a young age.”

(Thira “Um” Chutikul) in How To Win At Checkers (Every Time)

The other conflict at the heart of Kim’s film is the fact that, coming from a poor family, Ek has no options available to him when facing the draft lottery. His boyfriend, Jai, on the other hand, has a wealthy father who is able to bribe Junior’s father so that Jai be exempted from military service. What that does to the intense level of trust between Ek, Jai, and Oat lies at the crux of How To Win At Checkers (Every Time).

What happens to Ek after he enters the military provides the harshest coming-of-age lesson for his 11-year-old brother. Ingkarat “Ryu” Damrongsakkul delivers a remarkable performance for such a young actor. Here’s the trailer:

A child’s aggrieved frustrations (and his need to learn the importance of forgiveness) lie at the core of 1925’s Visages d’Enfants, which was shown at the 2015 San Francisco Silent Film Festival with live accompaniment by Stephen Horne on piano, flute, and accordion. Directed by Jacques Feyder, the story takes place in the small village of Saint-Luc in the Haut-Valais region of the Swiss Alps (where differences in social class don’t seem to exist and people are more concerned with the real challenges of their day-to-day lives).

2015-06-30-1435689685-9710376-visagesposter.jpg

Early in the film, the villagers are seen attending the funeral of the Mayor’s wife (Suzy Vernon), who has left behind two confused children: 10-year-old Jean (Jean Forest), and his five-year-old sister, Pierrette (Pierrette Houyez). Their grief-stricken father, Pierre Amsler (Victor Vina), suddenly finds himself without a partner to care for his two children.

After a reasonable period of mourning, Pierre decides to marry a local widow named Jeanne Dutois (Rachel Devirys), whose daughter, Arlette (Arlette Peyran), will add another child to his family. But it becomes obvious that Jean is having adjustment problems following his mother ‘s death. The boy’s sullen behavior prompts his father to send him on a trip with the local priest, Canon Taillier (Henri Duval), who is also Jean’s godfather.

While they are away, the priest explains to Jean that his father will be getting married to another woman. Upon their return home, Jean finds Jeanne and Arlette comfortably settled in his home. To add insult to injury, he learns that Arlette and Pierrette have taken over his old bedroom and he has been forced to move into a smaller room.

Jean’s increasingly hostile behavior is not limited to the “You’re not my real mother and you never will be” variety. He and Arlette quickly become bitter enemies. Jean refuses to let Arlette join in the fun when he and Pierrette are playing games. When his stepmother uses the material from one of his deceased mother’s favorite dresses to make new clothes for the two girls, Jean takes out a pair of scissors and destroys what’s left of his mother’s dress.

And the boy certainly knows how to hold a grudge. On a cold, winter day, when the family is traveling across the snow on a sled, Jean seizes an opportunity to throw Arlette’s favorite doll into a snowdrift. That night he tells Arlette that she should go out and try to find the missing doll.

After becoming lost in the snow, Arlette seeks refuge in a small chapel on the mountain. When an avalanche buries the chapel and Arlette fails to return home, a rescue party is formed by the villagers.

After the young girl is found, Jean’s guilt and self-loathing continue to fester. Having apologized to his father, he writes a letter informing the family that he is leaving their village and heads for a nearby stream, intent on drowning himself.

When Arlette and Pierrette inform Jeanne of Jean’s departure, she rushes down to the stream and manages to save her stepson’s life in the nick of time. Realizing that Jeanne really does care for him, Jean finally stops trying to sabotage his father’s second marriage and starts to grow up.

During the 2013 San Francisco Silent Film Festival, Jean Forest made quite an impression during a screening of 1926’s Gribiche. Although precious little footage from Visages d’Enfants is available online, this brief clip gives viewers a sample of his intensity and his ability to communicate internal thoughts.

Human Values in Critical Medicine

Human Values in Critical Medicine


?This edited volume of articles explores one of the major ethical concerns raised by biomedical technology and its use with neonates and adults who are critically ill and dying. The nine authors of the seven articles are known for ethics writings, and they explore in varying detail the values of physicians and nurses that influence decisions concerning the use of life-sustaining medical treatment with ill adults and neonates. Although heavily philosophical, the essays are clear and understandable for those in the health professions as well as educated consumers of health care. Specific areas of emphasis include values influencing decisions to withhold or withdraw life-sustaining treatment, allocation of scarce resources, organ trasplantation programs, and critical care nursing. The volume contains an annotated review of the literature addressing the needs and concerns of families of critically ill patients whether child or adult. Articles are well referenced and represent state of the art knowledge in the field of bioethics and critical care decision making. Lower-division through graduate level collections-Choice

Taking a Hard Look at What’s Important: Validating our Values

When someone asks what our values are, we can probably start listing things that seem important to us in life right away. These things will determine how we assess our level of success, and so getting them right is very important.

However, as we eagerly list those values we may not quite as readily step back to decide which of those are actually ours and not ones that have been handed to us over the years. These ‘hand-me-down’ values are still very valid, so much so, that by now making that distinction may seem like a bit of a struggle.

I first noticed this when talking to students at the business school about their careers, goals and aspirations. What they considered to be important to them as they thought about their new post MBA lives was strikingly similar. It made sense; a set of like minded, highly driven individuals with similar backgrounds were likely to have common values. But equally, they were also very different people, and though I didn’t get this information the first time, after a bit of prodding I found out that:

Jo, had lost his father when young and grown up in a small home in Kansas, Peter was dealing with huge financial burdens and was born and raised in London, and Emily came from a long line of doctors in Kenya and was breaking away from her family tradition to pursue her dreams of becoming an entrepreneur. So, I pushed further and asked about their backgrounds and what that meant in terms of who they wanted to be, and how they defined success.

Soon the validation started trickling in,

I mean sure, when I say making an impact, of course I am talking much more than money.

When I said I’d never move back to Kansas, I mean I guess, if my mother needed me to, I would… It’s actually not so bad.

Hearing the students start to modify that initial checklist inspired me to do the same. Which of the values I held most dearly were ones I actively chose? It made me think about how far away from my Mediterranean origin I had come, and more so about the fact that I never really chose a fast paced, big city lifestyle, but yet here I was, allowing the city to define what success meant to me.

While we busily chase what everyone else chases, and make comparisons based on selective information through things like social media, it may be hard to really take the time to examine what really matters to us, personally. It gets even harder if it directly conflicts with what matters to those around us, or more accurately what appears to matter. I suppose we can call this, ‘value pressure.’

For the business students it was as important as ever to perform that validation, as they thought about their future careers and continued to define success for themselves, but I worried that might not happen. What I also realized was that we are all at risk of pursuing a path assuming it will define success for us. Without taking the time and being flexible enough to examine those values constantly and checking to see which hold true, and which lost value along the way, we may stop really remembering or trusting what we believe. It is then that we risk that all the effort we put into our endeavors, career and projects lead us down a path where our values just aren’t valid.
