Caroline Stanbury On Why She And ‘Ladies Of London’ Cast Are Staying Silent On Annabelle Neilson’s Death


On Monday came the shocking news that Ladies of London star Annabelle Neilson had died. Immediately, fans of the Bravo show, which wasn’t renewed after season 3, took to social media to see the reactions of Annabelle’s former co-stars regarding her death and to express their condolences. Oddly, none of Annabelle’s co-stars immediately posted a public statement regarding her death.

This doesn’t mean that they don’t care though. After receiving some questions and criticisms, Caroline Stanbury explained why she and the other Ladies of London women, Julie Montagu, Juliet Angus, Caroline Fleming, Marrissa Hermer, and Sophie Stanbury, have so far stayed silent on the tragedy.

In the comments of the latest photo she posted, Caroline revealed that she and the other women are respecting Annabelle’s family’s wish that they remain silent.

“sushigirl07: Wow none of the LOL posted anything about Annabelle? #fairweatheredfriend”
“carolinestanbury: @sushigirl07 they are a private family and we respect their wishes thank you”
“glamlifedolls: @acbrent she don’t seem to care rather post stories from some random airplane and airport……”
“carolinestanbury: @glamlifedolls again this is a private time for her family and not for social media”
“madtax57: Nothing about Annabelle. So self centered. So sad.”
“carolinestanbury: @madtax57 again we are all respecting the wishes of her family thank you”
Caroline thanked those who defended her and her co-stars.
“david212nyc: So sorry for your loss, and it is just a shame that you & your circle of friends are being attacked for being respectful. You are a true friend, and showing your friendship in this moment.💐”
“carolinestanbury:@david212nyc thank you 😘”
“jessicaelize_x: Disgusted people have the audacity to comment on why haven’t you posted. Social media isn’t life.”
“carolinestanbury@jessicaelize_x 😘”
One very famous person, though, has reacted publicly to Annabelle’s death. Model Kate Moss, whom Annabelle described as one of her best friends and like a sister to her, posted a throwback photo of her and Annabelle, with a broken heart emoji as the caption.

How did the 49-year-old Annabelle Neilson die? On Wednesday, Annabelle’s sister said that the family has been told that she died from a heart attack. Annabelle’s sister also asked for privacy.

“Very sadly, we have been informed today that my sister Annabelle, died as a result of a heart attack at home last Thursday. It has come as a complete shock, as she had many plans having recently returned from Spain. My parents and I are devastated and shocked by this news. We would ask the media to respect the privacy of our family and Annabelle’s close friends during this very difficult time. We will not be making any further statement at this time. We thank you for your consideration.”

By Wednesday evening, most of Annabelle’s Ladies of London co-stars had posted a tribute to her on their Instagram pages. Check here for a roundup of their tributes. Interestingly, Julie Montagu, whose previously close friendship with Annabelle deteriorated by the end of season 2, has yet to publicly comment on Annabelle’s death, though she did just put up a post about really needing a hug for personal reasons.



Carole Radziwill And Adam Kenworthy In Dubai Together

Are Carole Radziwill and Adam Kenworthy still together? Apparently so. Their respective Instagram pages show that they were both in Dubai at the same time. And while they didn’t post photos of themselves with one another, it’s clear from the photos that they took the trip together.

Also with Carole and Adam in Dubai were their The Real Housewives of New York City co-stars Dorinda Medley, Dorinda’s boyfriend John Mahdessian and Tinsley Mortimer. They visited Ladies of London star Caroline Stanbury, who now lives in Dubai. Check out these photos that John posted, one of which shows him hanging out at the beach with Adam.

This season on Real Housewives, Carole Radziwill and the much younger Adam Kenworthy are the “are they or aren’t they” couple. According to Carole, they’re not really together anymore, at least in terms of a long-term, serious monogamous relationship. But clearly, they’re still in one another’s lives. Last episode, Carole confessed to Tinsley Mortimer that Adam had told her that he went out on a date with someone else and is interested in her, which clearly bummed Carole out.

Judging by these photos though, they’re at least still having fun with one another!
