RHONY's Carole Radziwill Reconnects with Late Cousin Carolyn Bessette-Kennedy on Hollywood Medium

staff@people.com (Dave Quinn)

Carole Radziwill is overcome with emotion when she reconnects spiritually with a dear friend who was abruptly ripped from her life.

As wife to John F. Kennedy, Jr.'s cousin Anthony Radziwill, The Real Housewives of New York City star was especially close with JFK Jr.'s wife Carolyn Bessette-Kennedy.

Now, nearly two decades after the Kennedys killed in a plane crash in July 1999, Radziwill is once again communicating with her late friend.

In a sneak peek at Hollywood Medium with Tyler Henry, Henry immediately channels Bessette Kennedy after Radziwill hands him a ring.



"There's a weird reference to an individual who died tragically at, like, a very early age that I have to highlight," says the 20-year-old medium, evoking memories of Bessette Kennedy, who was 33 when she died. "Of course, it's sad in any case where there's a tragedy. But from her perspective, the amount of life that she had inside of her was intense in the way that it comes across."

He continues, "Like, if she walks in the room, I feel like everyone looks at her."

Radziwill is shocked, calling the reading "overwhelming."

"Oh my God," the 52-year-old What Remains author says. "Tyler was connecting with Carolyn Bessette, who was my closest friend."

"I knew exactly who Tyler was connecting with," she confesses to viewers. "And of course, when I gave Tyler the ring, he almost immediately characterized her exactly how she was and was so on-point. I felt her presence."

The other thing Radziwill knew for sure was that Henry didn't know who Bessette Kennedy was.

"This is a woman that is acknowledging this feeling. It seems to have a heavy sensation. The acknowledgement is 'There's no way to get through this,' " he explains.

"When people are old and they pass, they don't view it as tragic. When they are young and they pass, they view it as tragic," he continued.
