Kelly Bensimon

It’s here! The long awaited Playboy debut of Kelly Bensimon is finally here. The 41 year old star of The Real Housewives of New York City is gracing the March cover of Playboy magazine with a six page spread.

Kelly, who poses nude in the magazine, reveals she decided to pose for the mag “to show the world that a 41-year-old mother of two can be sexy!”

And how was it having her ex-husband, legendary fashion photographer Gilles Bensimon, shoot her? “That was my idea,” said Kelly. “No one takes more beautiful pictures of women than Gilles. I know a lot of amazing photographers, and they’re all lovely and awesome, but Gilles makes women better versions of themselves, and that’s what I wanted for Playboy.”

So did Kelly actually reveal everything? That answer is no according to Kelly because “I didn’t want to do that. I don’t think that part of a woman’s body is really evocative. The roundness of the hips, the buttocks, the breast, the shoulders, the clavicle, the hair, the teeth—those are things that I think are most evocative and provocative parts of the body. So I don’t think it’s really necessary to show that. Some people might think it’s necessary, but it wasn’t for me.”

The New York Post is reporting that the biggest posers to ever hit reality television, Alex McCord and hubby Simon Van Kempen, might be getting the boot from their Bravo show – The Real Housewives of New York City.

According to the Post, the wife & hubby duo are not going to be asked back for a season four. Season Three, which is set to premier March 4, just wrapped up filming. They will be appearing on the 3rd season.

So why are Simon & Alex not being asked back? According to a source, “There are a ton of reasons they aren’t being asked back.”

The first being, “Viewers don’t have a positive reaction to them, so they’re easily replaceable at this point,” says the source. However, a Bravo rep insists that “no details have been released about next season” and Simon himself insists, “We have not had any discussions regarding a fourth season.”

“Also, they don’t really fit in with the other wives,” continues the source. “All of the other women’s story lines have interwoven, yet Alex and Simon have kept theirs separate. It isn’t nearly as interesting as the other Housewives’.”

And it doesn’t end there. According to the insider, there are even more reasons. Apparently Simon threw a “hissy fit” because he’s not being paid as much as the other cast members. “Simon wants to be an equal on the show, but that doesn’t really make any sense to Bravo,” the source says. “After all, he’s not a ‘Real Housewife,’ now is he?”

The Post also says the other ladies on the show including Bethenny Frankel, Jill Zarin, Ramona Singer, and Kelly Bensimon would like to see them go. “In the upcoming season, Alex picks a lot of fights, and it looks like it’s an attempt to keep her story line relevant,” the insider says. “But it ended up seeming inauthentic.”

So far no word yet on who will replace Alex & Simon, if they do end up leaving the show.

TELL US – DO YOU WANT TO SEE ALEX & SIMON LEAVE THE SHOW?

New Yorkers may finally get a break from the city’s most overexposed “House” husband: We hear that Simon van Kempen and his missus, Alex McCord, aren’t being asked back for Season Four of “The Real Housewives of New York City.”

Rumors of an impending exit for the Brooklynites began swirling just as filming wrapped on Season Three, which begins March 4. Says an insider, “There are a ton of reasons they aren’t being asked back.”

So where do we begin?

“Viewers don’t have a positive reaction to them, so they’re easily replaceable at this point,” the source dishes, although a rep for Bravo insists that “no details have been released about next season” and van Kempen himself says, “We have not had any discussions regarding a fourth season.”

“Also, they don’t really fit in with the other wives,” continues the insider. “All of the other women’s story lines have interwoven, yet Alex and Simon have kept theirs separate. It isn’t nearly as interesting as the other Housewives’.”

Our well-placed snitch says that’s not all: Simon apparently threw a “hissy fit” when he wasn’t paid as well as the other cast members.

“Simon wants to be an equal on the show, but that doesn’t really make any sense to Bravo,” the source says. “After all, he’s not a ‘Real Housewife,’ now is he?”

He’s most certainly not, but his better half is – even though she’s not exactly a popular presence. In fact, our source says the other ladies on the show – Bethenny Frankel, Jill Zarin, LuAnn de Lesseps, Ramona Singer and Kelly Bensimon – would be more than happy to see Alex go.

“In the upcoming season, Alex picks a lot of fights, and it looks like it’s an attempt to keep her story line relevant,” the insider says. “But it ended up seeming inauthentic.”

So who could replace the husband-and-wife duo? Event planner Jennifer Gilbert and ex-wife of a JP Morgan heir Sonja Morgan, who were announced last fall as the newest Housewives.

“It’s been known that one was meant to replace Bethenny, who’s getting her own show, but until now no one knew who the other housewife to go would be,” says our insider. “Now it looks like it’s Alex.”

Is Bethenny Frankel the new Star Jones? According to the NYDailyNews, the Real Housewives of NYC star is gearing up to have a huge wedding with one little catch, she doesn’t want to pay a dime!

Bethenny, who has received her own Bravo spinoff show titled “Bethenny’s Getting Married?” has been talking to vendors all over New York about getting them to ‘sponsor’ her wedding,” a well-placed source says of Bethenny’s upcoming nuptials to fiance Jason Hoppy.

“She wants everything and anything, and she isn’t shy about the fact that the cameras will be rolling during the event.” The source reveals that Bethenny has attempted to get everything, from her dress to the venue to a planner, for absolutely free.

It however seems Bethenny isn’t having much luck unlike the former “View” host Star Jones, who notoriously got vendors to fund her lavish wedding back in 2004. The vendors aren’t as eager to give Bethenny free items for product placement on her upcoming show as the show has yet to air. “The feedback has been that it’s just too much to ask for when there’s no payment involved – especially when one episode of a show hasn’t even aired yet,” says the insider.

The source insists Bethenny is refusing to take no for an answer and will keep trying to get free vendors. Another drama brewing is which of her housewives costars will be attending her wedding. Though Bethenny has invited Jill Zarin, LuAnn de Lesseps, Alex McCord, Ramona Singer and even Kelly Bensimon. There are rumors Jill might not attend as the two have drifted apart in the recent months.

One person who will be in attendance is Ramona as the tells the mag, “I’m definitely going to the wedding. Bethenny said, ‘I want you there,’ and I told her, ‘I support you in everything you do.”

Bethenny is however denying she was shopping around for sponsors. “If I had the time to find sponsors for my wedding I deserve 2 free weddings and a trip to Fiji” she insists.

Is Tamra Barney a grandma? There are rumors floating around that the self professed “hottest housewife” on the block might have become a grandmother. Allegedly Tamra’s son, Ryan Vieth posted some information on his facebook about his one month old daughter named Dakota Vieth. Perhaps someone with access to Ryan’s page can confirm this for us.

Gretchen Rossi also recently took to her facebook fanpage to post a photo of her shooting a commercial for TurboTax, not sure what the correlation is between Gretchen & taxes but a behind the scenes photo is below.

The third season of The Real Housewives of NYC has yet to air, but judging from the recent events that have taken place in past months, it’s safe to say this will be a drama filled season.

“The minute I can, I will call you and give you all the dirt,” says housewife Kelly Killoren Bensimon in a recent interview. “I promise I will give you everything. I’m going to be much more talkative in the press this season than I was last season.”

When asked if she had gotten her fellow housewife Bethenny Frankel — who is four months pregnant — a baby gift, Kelly said “Everyone’s like, ‘Oh, they’re friends.’ ” Kelly explains, “No, we’re just on a TV show together. So it’s not appropriate for me to give her a gift.” (Kelly also says she doesn’t like giving baby gifts until the baby is born.)

So much for the alleged truce that had been called between the two, as they constantly feuded during the last season.  Kelly is also working on repairing her tarnished reputation which she feels has been unfairly trashed on- and off-camera.  She however insists that has nothing to do with her recent charity work, as she and Jill Zarin helped serve meals at the Food Bank’s soup kitchen in NYC.

Real Housewives of NYC star Kelly Bensimon visited a beach this weekend, as the reality star mother of two decided to soak up some sun in Miami, Florida.

Kelly also decided to show off her gymnastic skills as she proceeded to do some cartwheels on the beach shore.

As we reported earlier, the 44-year-old former model will be stripping down for Playboy magazine. “It’s the ultimate compliment and every woman’s dream. You get to be a sex symbol and work with top people in the business. It’s such an honor,” says Kelly on posing for Playboy.

During the 25 years celebration of the Wii game launch in NYC, FOX411 caught up with New York City Housewife star Kelly Killoren Bensimon. Kelly discusses having babies and posing for playboy.

Currently, the NYC Housewives’ are busy filming and gearing up for their third season which will air 2010. During the last season, Kelly got some bad press for allegedly beating her ex-fiancé. In the 3rd season, Kelly is looking forward to showing viewers who she really is, “a very enthusiastic person about a lot of things.” I guess we will be the judge of that.

However, Kelly isn’t enthusiastic about discussing cast mate and rival Bethenny Frankel, who recently announced she was expecting her first child. According to FOX411, Kelly didn’t want to comment on Bethenny’s pregnancy but she “hopes that every woman has a baby if they can.” Following her divorce, Kelly would like to be married again and have more kids in the future depending on her future husband which she is yet to meet.

In other news, there has been several reports on Kelly posing for the December Playboy edition however, Kelly said she could not “confirm or deny” the shoot. That is funny considering she said in other interviews that she barred her bod for the mag and that is “the ultimate compliment and every woman’s dream.”

So when asked, “hypothetically, whose nude shoot would be sexier, 41 year-old Kelly’s or 19 year-old Levi Johnston’s recent ‘Playgirl’ pictorial? Kelly’s response was, “If I did pose for ‘Playboy,’ I can’t compete with anyone else. I’m just swimming my own race.”
