Kelly Bensimon

The Real Housewives of NY’s Jill Zarin continues to speak out against the other housewives/husbands of the show. Jill previously suggested Kelly Bensimon leave the show to save her repuation, she is now speaking out about Kelly’s donation to her charity, and what she thinks of Ramona’s husband, Mario.

On what to expect from the reunion special:
“I picked a fight with everybody. I called everyone out. There were definitely things that I challenged people on to be honest about. The only one who I didn’t really [challenge] is Bethenny because Bethenny and I sort of see things the same way. And Bethenny has a very sharp memory. I would never go up against Bethenny’s memory. And anytime anyone does, they’ve very sorry they did.”

On LuAnn being separated from her husband before publicly announcing it:
“I think she needed to come clean about [her] marriage [problems]. That was one of the reasons why Ramona was particularly upset with LuAnn because she was kind of living this lie and making Ramona feel like, ‘I’m better than you.’ It’s like, listen, we all know what’s going on here. Don’t be a hypocrite, and that’s where a lot of the [hard] feelings came from.”

On Kelly’s donation to her charity auction:
“She did something nice by getting her ex-husband Gilles [Bensimon] to donate a photo shoot — but he hasn’t done it. It’s a problem. He says he’s going to do it now. We had to return the money, and if he does do it, obviously we’ll get the money back. But I had to return the money to the family because I’m not going to hold someone’s money. It’s been very difficult. Her heart was in the right place, so I don’t want to beat her up.”

On her feud with Mario:
“Mario and his big mouth — he wouldn’t leave me alone. Mario can’t have it both ways: You can’t be a classy guy like my husband and then throw darts at somebody else’s wife. And also I felt like he was hitting me outside the ring. I feel like the show’s the ring, like a boxing match, and I feel like he’s been hitting me after the bell rings. And half of [what he says] is lies. Are we going to have a street fight now? It’s obvious Mario is jealous of all the attention Ramona’s getting. You don’t have to be a therapist to see that.”

The NY Housewives finale is also tonight! Bravo is also having a virtual viewing party for tonight’s finale. You will be able to  follow Bethenny Frankel, Tamra Barney and other housewives on Twitter and Facebook and chat live with them.

Bethenny

The Real Housewives of New York’s Bethenny and Kelly talked about their feud in their bravo blogs last week. Here’s what each had to say about the other below. The above photo is a picture of Bethenny from this weekend’s Kentucky Derby. Not her best look as she’s usually the best dressed on the show.

Bethenny on Kelly’s “Self-Anointed Fabulosity”:

“The attempted reconciliation with Kelly was my idea — not Jill’s. I just chose to do it at her house because of the charity meeting. That meeting showed that the definition of insanity is repeating the same behavior and expecting different results.

Kelly and I don’t have much in common. We have arms and legs and are on “The Real Housewives.” Other than that, we’re quite different. Short of us boxing at Madison Square Garden, it can’t get much worse than it already is. Not everyone has to be friends…

Kelly came onto the show thinking anyone actually gave a crap about her self-anointed fabulosity. None of us care about her superficial lifestyle, so I think my calling her out is something that caught her off guard. Truthfully she never had anything against me. I had something against her. She is a complete phony and now she has been exposed and her small circle of New York supporters has now turned on her as well. The emperor has no clothes…

I will never be friends with someone inauthentic and disingenuous. I may be harsh, abrupt and rough around the edges, but for God’s sake, I am real. I don’t care how many “Dateline” exclusive sit-down interviews you have with Jill Stuart — your saccharin smile and hair twirl isn’t fooling me.”

Kelly on Bethenny’s “Negative Behavior”:

“The truth is that I am very a sensitive person. I hate confrontation, and I am annoyed by the soap opera/mafia sit-downs. I am a very easygoing person, and I don’t ever come across these types of moments in my every day life, so I honestly don’t have experience handling confrontation. I just want to enjoy the life I am so lucky and grateful to have.

I tried to be nice to Bethenny at the Jill Stuart fashion show. She chose to fight with the new girl, and was rewarded with press and airtime. She did what she set out to do, and honestly, what is wrong with that? It’s a TV show!

We speak two different languages. I don’t need to get to the bottom of why we had an argument, nor do I like to be policed on a constant basis. What’s in the past is in the past, and we are working together, so let’s move on.

I am always nice to everyone. But, as I always tell my children, not everyone is expected to be friends. You always have to make the effort to be polite. Bethenny and I don’t travel in the same circles, and we have some mutual friends, but I rarely see the cast outside of the show. That isn’t good or bad — it’s just different.

If Bethenny wants my attention I’d rather do something with her that is fun and productive, rather than indulge her negative behavior.”

Are you on Team Bethenny or Team Kelly?

The cattiness and nastiness is never ending with Bravo’s Real Housewives of New York. The latest involves Jill Zarin taking a swipe at Kelly Bensimon in a new interview. Evidently, Jill who is on Team Bethenny believes Kelly has no business being on the show and should take a hike!

“I don’t think it’s working for her,” says Jill. “I don’t think she should be on the show. It’s not that I think we should throw anybody off, it’s just that I think if I were her, I would not do the show again. I would go back to anonymity and spend the next year trying to repair my reputation. What’s more important to her: her reputation or fame?”

How old are these women again? Not that Jill isn’t right but is it really necessary to continue to throw Kelly under the bus? Kelly’s behavior on the show speaks for itself. Why not take the high road? Kelly had no comment but her rep says, “Jill is entitled to her opinion. Kelly had a wonderful time on the show.”

According to the same article, Bravo will be expanding this year’s reunion show to two hours over two nights after things got very heated apparently. “There were a lot of liars at the table,” Jill said. “Ramonaliar! Kellyliar! LuAnn—baby liar.”

Us Magazine challenged The Real Housewives of New York to each spend $100 on an entire outfit. The housewives were each taken to different stores. A clip of their shopping adventures is below –

What are your thoughts on tonight’s episode of The Real Housewives of New York?

kelly-bensimon2

Despite their on-air catfights and the constant taking swipes at each other in the media, The Real Housewives of New York‘s Kelly Bensimon is now saying she has no bad feelings towards Bethenny Frankel.

“Honestly, I don’t hate her,” she told Usmagazine on Wednesday. “I actually really respect her. It’s not easy trying to start a business and be single in New York.” These days, “we can be cordial,” says Kelly. “I’m not going to go out of my way to, like, be a bitch.”

And as for their now infamous bar fight on the show, Bensimon says she “needed to clear the air.”

Kelly of course couldn’t resist taking one last swipe at Bethenny saying, “I think a lot of people are scared of her, and well, I’m not scared of her. And I refuse to put up with her s–t.”

Anyone else weirded out by Kelly running in traffic on this week’s episode? Is that a New York thing?

So much for Kelly putting an end to her feud with Bethenny as she attacks Bethenny once again in the new issue of Harper’s Bazaar.

“Is Bethenny a socialite? No.” Bensimon, 40, says. “Will she ever sit next to [socialite] Lauren DuPont? No. Is she best friends with [Estee Lauder Senior Vice President] Aerin Lauder? No. Am I? No. Do I care? No. Does she? Oh, absolutely. She’s not authentic.”

“All she does is sit there and cry all the time,” she continues. “I’m like, You’re crying about guys? And shut up.” Evidently, this came on the heels of Bethenny accusing Kelly of having an “inauthenticity” to her in an early episode of the show.

Kelly goes on to add, “Honestly, if being inauthentic means graduating from Columbia University, writing three books, starting two magazines, bearing two children [daughters Sea, 10, and Teddy, 8], being the ambassador for wool, running a marathon for charity — if that’s inauthentic? Tell me what authentic is,” she says.  Allrighty then Kelly, glad you got that off your chest.

The Real housewives attended the Bravo A list awards this weekend and below are pictures of the housewives. Very interesting seeing Gretchen with all the other OC housewives. The Real housewives of NY star Bethenny Frankel blogged about meeting all the housewives -

This past weekend was the Bravo A-List Awards in LA, and I had the distinct pleasure of meeting all of the housewives. Yup, Atlanta and OC too.It was a weekend of a lot of wigs and a lotta weave. Here were the highlights: Kim is larger than life, off the rails, I don’t give an F, I drink, I smoke, my rack is hanging out, so stick it. Good TV for sure. Sheree was shockingly quiet, understated, nice and seemingly drama free (her flaming cling on gay glam friend notwithstanding). Lisa was tiny and peppy and sweet. Gretchen is bubbly and giggly and a stereotypically ditzy blonde, but truthfully, she seemed sweet on the surface as well. The fact that she’s dating Slade is too absurd to discuss, so I’ll let the viewers decide if he makes it next season. The blondes from OC have the most boobs and hair and lashes and Lynne made a funny comment that she could carve her initials in her face.

Where were the cameras? Truthfully, for a group of 13 women, I have to say, we played along very nicely. As for the husbands, except Simon Barney, most of them are wallflowers, and I’m not sure if George even speaks.

Freud would have a field day with this – Lauri “accidentally” sprayed Gretchen with her own personal airbrushing machine and her red carpet dress (which was half white) now had tan on it. She handled it surprisingly well.

What also made me laugh was the number of groupie entourage peeps these broads hung with. New Yorkers are independent. Ramona and I rolled solo while Atlanta and the OC had hair, makeup, friends, artists, drivers, bodyguards – you name it.The fact that my cast is way more subtle is truly astounding in and of itself.”
