Kelly Bensimon

It seems the Royal Highness herself aka Countess Luann de Lesseps is now offering unsolicited advice to soon to be royal Kate Middleton.

In a new interview with RadarOnline, Countess Lulu who was married to Count Alexandre de Lessep for 16 years and has reportedly rubbed elbows with the King of Greece, shares that Kate and Prince William’s engagement news is “almost as exciting as the day I got married!”

The Real Housewives of New York City star added, “I think it must be very exciting for her…I was the same age so I think she’s coming to the table a little more experienced. She’s not a wallflower, she has a great personality and she enjoys a good joke! And I think she’s somebody who’s comfortable with who she is.”

Luann then had the following advice for Kate. “I think she (Kate) should stay true to herself and be her own person and have good mentors. I’m sure the queen would be delighted to help her,” the Countess said with a laugh. “Charm is key and being warm and endearing is really looked upon as a very positive trait.”

In other NYC news, Kelly Bensimon has decided to take a break from vacation mental meltdowns and foot in mouth press interviews to once again pose for paparazzi while wearing an itsy bikini.

We’ve have lost count of Kelly’s staged bikini paparazzi photo shoots but the latest one is below. The 42-year-old mother of two was photographed on a beach in Miami. She is reportedly there to promote her new jewelry line.

In a new interview with the NY Post, Kelly Bensimon discusses the hardship of her dating life.

And no, it’s not because the Real Housewives of New York City star is deliciously dangerously insane, it is because she is a single mom with two kids.

“It’s not as sexy as it appears,” says Kelly, who divorced famed photographer Gilles Bensimon in 2007. “If you want to date me it’s like dating a 16-year-old because I have to be home by the time the nanny comes home.”

When it comes to her type, Kelly reveals she is open to dating all types of men and not just high profile ones.  “I’m not really into going out with high-profile people. I want a life for my kids,” she says.  Good luck with that Kelly.

Two of the Real Housewives of New York City jackasses stars are making headlines this week.

First up is Kelly Bensimon, who reveals to PEOPLE magazine in a new interview that her kids are extremely embarrassed by her don’t think she is cool.

“They think I’m their mom,” she said of her daughters, Sea Louis, 12, and Thaddeus Ann, 10. “Because I’m their mom I’m not really cool, but their friends like me, so I guess my cool factor is like a two on a [scale of] one to ten – better than a zero.”

It doesn’t end there as Kelly also admits her kids have told her to “tone it down” in the past. “They tell me to wait outside the school and not come in and not to embarrass them,” Kelly, 42, told PEOPLE. “I’m like, I’m not even saying anything.”

The jokes simply write themselves. Moving on to NYC Housewife #2 aka Jill Zarin. The HollywoodLife is reporting that Jill has decided to take on a plight that she is all too familiar with, you know, considering her BFF Kelly accused her housewives co-stars of bullying her and even made a youtube PSA video to further prove her insanity point.

Jill reportedly hosted a luncheon and fashion show this week to raise funds and support various anti-bullying projects. “No one should be bullied for any reason, and no one should ever have to be afraid or intimidated in the classroom or in their life because of their sexual orientation or gender identity,” says Jill to the HollywoodLife.

Nice to see Jill getting herself a hobby. Jill’s co-stars Kelly, LuAnn, Alex and Ramona were in attendance at her event. A picture of Kelly with her kids below –


So I have received a ton of emails and complaints in the past couple of weeks regarding off topic conversations in story posts. And I mean a ton.

And I have listened.  Starting today, I will be trying something new, which is to create one to two posts each week dedicated to off topic conversations.

So from now on, I would please like to request that the comments in story posts be kept relevant to the story posted and off topic comments be made in open posts such as this one.  The stories for the open posts will be smaller stories that I probably would not have posted otherwise.  Thank you.

Kelly Bensimon, via the HollywoodLife, has decided to share with us 5 things we never knew about her. The Real Housewives of NYC star however failed to mention the fact that she is kirazy! But then again, that is something we already knew.

5 things we never knew about Kelly below –

  • I work out 20 minutes a day, everyday.
  • I use Johnson’s baby oil on my skin in the shower.
  • I am a horrible fighter, and don’t have the tools for it.
  • I put perfume in my hair, not on my skin.
  • I am Kardashian obsessed.


Whether we like it or not, Kelly Bensimon is determined to make her bikini body happen.

The 42-year-old Real Housewives of New York City star, who is mostly known for being kirazy on the show, made certain to arrange yet another bikini paparazzi shoot in her too small teeny bikini. From the look of things, it seems Kelly might have fixed/reduced her formerly wonky breasts implants. A before photo of that is below.

According to Celebuzz, Kelly was photographed as she lounged at a pool in Fort Lauderdale, Florida on Wednesday. TMZ also posted one of Kelly’s bikini photos yesterday under the title “Crazy Hot.” The blog described her as the “loose cannon” of the Bravo reality series.

More bikini photos of Kelly below, she was also photographed reading a book.

The 4th season of the Real Housewives of NYC began filming weeks ago and so far not much as leaked out about the upcoming season, well that is until now.

Life&Style magazine is reporting that Ramona Singer is taking Kelly Bensimon’s place this season as the resident crazy pants of the show, while also acting violent.

“During filming, Ramona [Singer] slapped one of the producers from Shed Media, the company that produces the reality show,” an insider tells Life & Style. “It got very out of hand. What a way to start off the season, huh!”

It doesn’t end there as a second source tells the mag “Ramona has been acting out physically and emotionally… Her acting out wasn’t a story line for the show. It’s crazy; everyone involved in the show has been talking about it. What seems to be going on with her lately is unclear, but she’s been very erratic.”

Life&Style magazine is a very credible source when it comes to Housewives news, making this story all the more interesting.  Let’s all hope Kelly and Jill aren’t the two sources for this story.


Following the report weeks ago that Bravo had invited back all of the Real Housewives of New York City from season 3, Ramona Singer is now revealing which of her co-stars have accepted Bravo’s offer to return to the show!

Despite Kelly Bensimon and Jill Zarin’s proclamations on several occasions that they received unfair editing by Bravo, and that they were contemplating not coming back, Ramona tells PEOPLE magazine that both famewhores ladies will indeed be returning for season 4.

In fact, Ramona, 53, (Ramona’s 53? She looks great for her age) reveals all the ladies including Bethenny Frankel, Sonja Morgan, Alex McCord, Countess LuAnn, will be coming back. However, as we have previously reported, Bethenny will only make guest appearances on the season. “Bethenny will come on a little bit. We need a Bethenny moment,” said Ramona.

Also joining all the ladies pictured above will be a new housewife. Ramona confirms the news to UsWeekly that a new NYC housewife will be joining the cast when filming begins next week. “We have this new girl coming on. She is very happy with herself,” Ramona tells Usmagazine. “Not to say I’m not going to get pissed at her or have a fight with her about something — that’s just who I am sometimes! I can’t help it. But it’s better I tell it to your face then behind your back, right?”

Ramona also discusses Bethenny’s return to the show in her UsWeekly interview telling the site Bethenny will make “cameo appearances, just like I did on her show.” In true Ramona fashion, she seems to take a shot, perhaps an unintentional shot at Teresa Giudice when she adds, “We are intertwined in a sense. She proved to Bravo you don’t have to have table-flipping to get ratings.”

In other NYC news, The HollywoodReporter is reporting that Bethenny has began filming the second season of her hit spin-off show, Bethenny Getting Married, this week. This comes as no surprise as the show was a hit for Bravo, giving the network it’s highest rated series debut in its history. A source tells the site Bravo will likely change the name of the show.

In the current issue of UsWeekly magazine, Bethenny Frankel, former star of Real Housewives of New York City, discusses her former castmates.

This is the same issue in which Bethenny announced she was quitting the show. When asked about her current status with former BFF Jill Zarin, Bethenny had some interesting things to say. “I was sympathetic at the reunion, but Jason said, ‘It’s all for the cameras,'” she says before adding, “I never heard from her after that.”

When it comes to Kelly Bensimon, Bethenny says her interaction with Kelly was toxic. “She said mean things. She called me a ho bag. I don’t want Bryn to hear stuff like that.” And when it comes to Kelly coming back on the show next season, Bethenny had some nicer words for the unpredictable housewife. “I hope coming back is a healthy choice for her,” said Bethenny. “It’s stressful.”

It seems Bethenny’s husband, Jason Hoppy, also played a role in her decision to leave the Housewives. “My husband was embarrassed by it,” she said. “Jason’s a different person when he’s on camera for Housewives than he is for Bethenny’s Getting Married? He just didn’t want to do it anymore.”


In other NYC Housewives news, in a new interview with PEOPLE magazine, Kelly Bensimon solely discusses her hair, telling the mag that everyone is obsessed with it.

“Everyone is obsessed with my hair,” Kelly told PEOPLE. “They always want to touch it.” Kelly credits her hair colorist, Bradley Irion, for giving her the amazing must-be-touched hair.

“When I met Bradley, he said, your hair has to be natural. So he literally colored my base and let my natural hair color come through. People are constantly coming up to me and touching my hair. That’s what Bradley gave me. . . this touchable, gorgeous hair that’s real,” she said adding that Bradney “even cuts my dog’s hair.”

While the article itself was unintentionally humorous, the only two comments left on the article page are likely much more funny. “I think it always, always looks dirty and stringy,” posted Anniieee. “Her hair makes her face so long. It’s also so dated. She looks like she belongs in the 80′s. Is this all this woman cares about?” posted boston02127.

UPDATE – This gets even better.  Here’s what Rob Shuter from Popeater posted on twitter:  “Off to bed! But laughing so loud that @kikilet told people everyone was obsesssed with her hair! Her PR people pitched that story! We passed.”
