Days after Kelly Bensimon’snow infamous meltdown on the Real Housewives of New York City, the 42-year-old former model continues to be a hot topic.
Kelly was even in the top 10 searches on the web for a few days, leading the nutty reality to tweet, “OMG!!!!!!! I am on Yahoo top 5 list for search. KKB #5 on yahoo topic of the day! Wow.” It seems someone forgot to inform Kelly about 99.99% of those searches were proceeded by the words “crazy,” “mentally ill,” and “breakdown.”
Moving right along to Kelly’s new interview with NYMag, during which Kelly declares she suffered a “breakthrough” and not a “breakdown.” Wonder what TV show she watched Thursday night.
“Some people are like, ‘You had a breakdown,’ and I’m like, no, I had a breakthrough,” said Kelly of her hysterics on the yacht in St. John’s. Kelly goes on to claim that her rival housewives are “not happy I’m on the show, they’re just not…I’m very sensitive, and if someone says something very rude to me over and over again, I’m human. Shoot me.”
“I’m completely honest, I have a ton of integrity,” Kelly continued. “The minute I walk into the room, I create…this stagnant frenetic energy.” Umm okay, and despite the whole world thinking she is nuts, Kelly manages to find the positive in that. “Let’s be honest,” she added of her outbursts, “It makes for awesome TV…if they’re not hating on you, you’re not doing something right.”
While Kelly continues to make great TV as the expense of her reputation, one person who is quickly distancing herself from her is none other than CuntessLuAnn De Leseeps. Here’s what LuAnn had to say about Kelly in her new bravo blog -
“I encouraged Kelly to pass on this trip because I knew that she couldn’t defend herself. I’m still baffled by how antagonistic she was at the dinner party. I think that Kelly may have had other issues going on at home that pushed her over the emotional edge. Kelly’s lack of empathy makes it hard for her to be a good girlfriend. After watching this episode, I can honestly say, I’m glad I stayed home! I don’t think anyone could have helped Kelly in this situation.”
And for anyone who’s still giving Kelly the benefit of the doubt, her behavior off the show continues to paint her in an even crazier light. Kelly continues to accuse the other ladies of bullying her, despite the fact that she was the one who continued to attack the ladies on vacation. And victim Kelly even took to twitter to try to start an anti-bullying rally –
“thst’s it for #realhousewives bullying is not ok conversation. tune in tomorrow.”
Kelly has also been asking her “fans” on twitter to help her with the upcoming reunion show, scheduled to be filmed on May 26th. Apparently Kelly needs some help in defending herself against all the big bad bullies on the show. She tweeted –
“we need a reunion plan. if you dont want these women to win, give me advice.i will use it verbatim and name u on the show. tell your friends.”
“i dont want to win, i jut want to get out unscathed. i am too real and nice for these women.”
And finally, last week’s episode of the Real Housewives of NYC was the highest rated ever in Bravo history for the franchise. Guess it pays to be crazy after all. But still, here’s to hoping Kelly gets the help she needs.
Ali, who is best known for leaving last season’s Bachelor after choosing her job over Jake Pavelka, vows thing will be different this go around. During the intro segment of the Bachelorette premiere, Ali declares, “I’m ready to meet someone and put him first,” and even informs host Chris Harrison that she’s ready to have a child!
But don’t expect Ali to have a drama free season. As we reported, one of the guys is revealed to be two timing Ali as the season goes along. Cocky wrestler Justin Rego, who goes by the moniker “Rated R,” had a girlfriend while on the show, and the GF will reportedly call Ali to let her know.
Despite all the drama, what people want to know is did Ali find love on this show? Ali is playing coy, only saying, “Do I have tan on my ring finger? I’m very happy. I just made the decisions that were the ones I felt the most confident in along the way. I’m very proud of each decision that I made, whether or not I fell in love, you’ll have to tune in to see.”

While Kate Gosselin continues to remain a single mother of eight, Jon Gosselin is currently on his third girlfriend in less than a year.
According to RadarOnline, the Jon & Kate Plus 8 dad introduced his 23-year-old new girlfriend of 2 months, Ellen Ross, to his eight children this weekend. And as for Kate? Well she has spent the past week in Los Angeles, California, doing press and rehearsing for her final dance on Dancing With The Stars.
Jon and Ellen were spotted picking up his sextuplets from the school bus in Reading, Pennsylvania on Friday, and the kids didn’t appear too phased to be meeting daddy’s “new friend,” as they appeared to be all smiles and laughs, and happy to be seeing their dad.
It didn’t end there however as Jon and Ellen also took the kids swimming on Saturday during which Ellen was seen carrying one of the sleepy sextuplets as they left the pool at the end of the day.
The article also states Jon is currently looking for a new job.

Bret, 47, who has experienced some serious health problems including a brain hemorrhage and warning stroke, was able to make it to the finale show. Other than a slight limp, Bret looked to be in good health.
Donald Trump told Bret he was “hired” in Sunday’s finale show. Bret won $250,000 for his charity of choice, the American Diabetes Association. And despite coming in second place, Holly was also a winner as she was awarded the same amount for her charity for autism, HollyRod.
And this isn’t the last we’ve seen of Bret. VH1 has announced it will preview Bret’s new reality show next Sunday. The show titled “Bret Michaels: Life As I Know It,” is scheduled to debut next fall. For the time being, VH1 announced production on the show had been “temporarily halted,” with “Bret’s health as our primary concern.”

According to TMZ, Evelyn is now suing Vanessa Davis, former wife of NBA player Ricky Davis (pictured above). Evelyn claims Vanessa, who can be seen on tonight’s episode of Basketball Wives, smeared her reputation all over the Internet after she was “not selected” to be on the reality show.
It doesn’t end there however. Evelyn also claims Vanessa is the responsible party who hacked into her email and leaked her topless nude pictures online. Vanessa is also accused of going to a gossip blog and calling Evelyn a “high end prostitute,” a “drunkard,” and a “hoe ass” — and even accusing her of neglecting her daughter.
Evelyn claims Vanessa is out to “ruin her reputation” — and is asking for at least $15,000 in damages for all the trouble Vanessa allegedly caused.

“The four of us are actually sane and she’s crazy, and now we’re picking on her.” – Sonja Morgan
“Best episode ever & worst episode too in a way.” – Simon Van Kempen.
Those are two powerful quotes. Last night’s episode of the Real Housewives of New York City was absolutely the best and the worst. The Hills is not real, Spencer Pratt’s alleged meltdown on the Hills is not real. What you watched on the Real Housewives of NYC last night was real, very real. Too real perhaps.
What I and other millions of viewers watched was a complete and total mental breakdown from what I will assume is a very mentally ill person. I don’t even know how to proceed with this recap. Last week’s episode was more of a Kelly Bensimon is coo coo crazy kinda thing, but somewhere along last night’s episode, Kelly being crazy took a dark turn into Kelly being mentally ill, and something about that is quite troubling.
And what’s worse than the madness we all just watched on television? Well according to Bethenny, Ramona and Alex. What was shown on TV was actually very tame in comparison to what actually took place that night. “Truth be told, what aired was very tame compared to what actually happened. I think that to air the full scope of it would terrify the viewers. We were truly terrified ourselves,” blogged Bethenny. Must say I can’t imagine kelly possibly being worse than what we just watched.
So why don’t I have any sympathy for Kelly, someone who I believe might be mentally ill, something not of her doing? Well I’m not quite sure. For one, I can’t relate to this woman in any way, shape, or form. She acts like a robot and seems to have the IQ of an 8 year old. I can’t relate and comprehend to the the way she acts or the moronic things she says. And reason number #2 why I can’t seem to muster up any sympathy is because she continued to be the aggressor and attacker in last night’s episode. She also seems to have no remorse for her insane behavior and continues to blame others. She blames Bethenny and Bravo for how she came across. She also continues to attack Bethenny, even accusing her of exploiting her father’s death for ratings. It’s funny that Kelly says she is scared of Bethenny, when in reality Bethenny should be the scared party. Kelly seems to have an unhealthy obsession with Bethenny and I wouldn’t be surprised to find out that Kelly holds Bethenny responsible for 9/11, Hurricane Katrina, her divorce, etc
Going into this vacation from hell, one would think the women would pick on Kelly and treat her badly. The irony turned out to be that these women, who are usually drama prone, seemed to genuinely want a drama free vacation, despite Kelly’s constant attempts to bring the drama. Kelly was the one who picked on the women from the get go, and made certain to attack every single one of them. The women at every single attempt tried to calm her down, be nice to her, and tried to have a good time. But Kelly would not stop, and was very combative and defensive.
Some things to point out in this episode, Kelly, while on the phone with Jill, said Bethenny’s gift bag to her was impersonal. And in case you’re wondering, this is the same gift bag with her initials on it. Evidently the lunatic in Kelly can’t grasp that this was an attempt by Bethenny to make amends. Kelly, who has breast implants, bad wonky ones at that, then goes on to make fun of Bethenny’s “Fake D tits,” thus giving us our first pot meet kettle moment.
And then it’s breakfast time and Kelly decides to bring a complaints pad to the ladies telling them to write down their complaints like they do in the fourth grade. Huh what? Kelly has offered to take photos of the ladies, but Bethenny decides to skip out on the crazy show. During the photo shoot, Kelly creepily tells Alex to channel her son Johan while trying to take sexy bikini pictures.
Moving on to the dinner from hell. Kelly who is already channeling a nut with her uncombed hair, decides to talk on her cell phone during dinner in front of the ladies, which rubs Ramona the wrong way. Once again, the ladies attempt to make nice with Kelly, who continues to take jabs and once again make mention of Bethenny being or not being a chef. Kelly then mentions in her interview that Bethenny is always on defense and is psychotic. And thanks to the psych class I took sophomore year in college, I can confidently proclaim this is what is known as “Projection.”
