Let's take at trip, shall we? Will y'all travel with me to Long Island? Wait, no. How about Staten Island? Nah, that's not right either. Okay, who is up for an all expenses paid trip to Scary Island? Yes, I'd say we're all familiar with that destination!
Former Real Housewives of New York star Kelly Bensimon will be returning to the show this season in a limited capacity. What capacity, you ask? Just call her matchmaker for Carole Radziwill. Heck, that could be a whole new show in and of itself!

In an interview with Wet Paint, Kelly dishes about her reboot on the franchise (apparently we have Countess LuAnn DeLesseps to thank for it!). Not surprisingly, she's a Dina Lohan fan. Don't believe me? Check out her chat below!
On her appearances on RHONY this season: "LuAnn asked me to come on with her. She was like, ‘Will you walk in this fashion show for me and surprise all the ladies?’ And I obviously told her that I would. It was really fun. I got to meet Carole Radziwill, who’s incredibly smart, funny, and charming. She said she wanted to meet some guys to snuggle with, so I set her up on some dates."
Did she say how they went? "I don’t know! I didn’t ask her. I didn’t follow up."
RHONJ’s Dina Manzo is going to be first departed Housewife to return to the series. Would Kelly come back? "I loved being on the show and meeting these women and observing their lives. The only way that I would actually ever consider coming back is if I could actually show my real life and be able to celebrate who I am, versus being in a scene with women I don’t know. Forcing an undercurrent makes the viewer really unsettled. Just let the cameras roll, let the women go for it. Why do you stop filming? When we were in Morocco, all of the best things that happened were after the cameras finished. Me sitting in my underwear drinking wine with LuAnn and Sonja [Morgan] crying? I mean, that’s like TV gold."
What are your thoughts on Lindsay Lohan telling Andy Cohen to put her mom, Dina Lohan, and Jill Zarin on RHONY? "I’ve met Dina a couple of times with Jill. She seems really nice. I don’t know her well. I love Jill Zarin. I think she’s awesome spirited, and I think Dina could be fun. But I really think they need to showcase how awesome New York is.There are these amazing, type A personalities, and I think they need to tap into that. If they amp it up, then I’m coming on!"
Never followed up on the blind dates with Carole? That's a bit odd in my opinion. However, a Kelly, Jill, Dina trifecta is certainly something I'd tune in to see. Bring on the jelly beans, folks…it's going to be a long RHONY season!
