Carole Radziwill Slams Countess LuAnn De Lesseps Over 'Racist' Indian Remark
Carole Radziwill and Countess LuAnn De Lesseps clash over a racially insensitive faux pas in a preview clip from Monday's upcoming Real Housewives of New York City.
LuAnn's use of the phrase "Indian" -- in lieu of Native American -- irritates Carole, who informs her, "Anyone over the third grade knows not to say 'Indian.'"
The beautiful Countess -- who has Native American blood on her father's side -- responds by chanting while patting her mouth, mocking Carole's cultural sensitivities.
Carole incredulously says, "Native American … I don't know … everyone over the third grade …"
The Countess tries to blow it off, saying her boyfriend "always calls me his Wild Indian," which doesn't offend her.
Carole says in an off-camera interview that the LuAnn's words rubbed her the wrong way, as Native Americans have a "history of being neglected, discriminated against and abused.
"And that is something you don't joke about," she adds.

Carole explains to the Countess, "I think the point was that Native American vs. Indian … nobody says Indian anymore because it's politically incorrect," but the Countess isn't swayed.
"Isn't there a museum in Washington called the American Indian Museum?" she asks in an off-camera interview.
See the rest of the drama unfold when The Real Housewives of New York City airs on Bravo at 9/8c Monday.
