Kelly Killoren Bensimon

Guess what – Kelly Bensimon isn’t nuts – she says so herself! In a new interview for Shape magazine, the 43-year-old Real Housewives of New York castmember talks about all the boring stuff, like her diet and exercise routines, and the important stuff: like how she just plays a wackjob on TV!

Kelly informs Shape that her infamous St. John’s breakdown, oh excuse me – break through, was simply her responding to other people: “people called me crazy,” she acknowledges. “But what they saw was me reacting—in an honest way— to a situation that wasn’t honest. Then everyone ganged up on me. So of course I looked crazy!” Oh, yeah… that’s what happened – Al Sharpton ganged up on her and forced her to eat jellybeans and undercooked meat!

After the tumultuous third season of Housewives in which everyone on Earth decided she was a few jellybeans short of an Easter basket, Kelly felt she had to return to the show – for her daughters, of course: “Teddy said, ‘You have to show them the real you.’ So this season I’m sort of the voice of reason. I’m listening to the others and giving advice and focusing on being a good mother and friend.” Wow – if this past season was Kelly demonstrating listening skills, then yeah… she’s crazier than we all thought!

Despite the fact that Bethenny Frankel was apparently the administrator of the “Systematic Bullying” that plagued her during Season 3, Kelly alleges she reached out to Bethenny following filming to clear the air. The mag reports: “After Bethenny left the series, Kelly says she offered to meet for coffee and a talk.” Kelly claims: “She wrote back saying she’d moved on from it all. That really upset me. She created all of this chaos, and then she moved on?” Interesting…

Kelly address the idea that she’s not the brightest bulb. I mean she went to Columbia University, after all! “I find it hilarious when someone says I’m not smart. I’ve written three books, including American Style, a review of U.S. fashion, which is a textbook in some schools.” In fact, Kelly is so smart she has a fourth book – a fitness and lifestyle guide – in the works.“The premise is that you can be healthy, happy, and hot,” explains Kelly. If you haven’t had enough of Kelly’s advice, you can pick up the book next year.

Finally, Kelly debunks the rumors that she abuses drugs: “My body is like a Ferrari,” says Kelly. “I know what it needs to run well—and that doesn’t include drugs, alcohol, or cigarettes.” If you want to know what Ms. Krazybeans eats for breakfast, lunch, and dinner – you can check out the article yourself, because I’m all crazied out!

The September issue of Shape is on newsstands now. Run – don’t walk – and get one!

So, what do you think of Kelly’s declaration of sanity? Are you interested in buying Kelly’s new book? Thoughts on the cover photograph?

The first Bethenny-less season of The Real Housewives of New York City finally came sputtering to an end- coasting on flimsy hopes and raw inertia ‘til the bitter, dusty end with Andy Cohen selling what’s left of it for scraps. It was a season of false promises, false reconciliations, and of course – false friendships, but never (wink,wink) false dramas. There were feuds, middle eastern nightmares, thugs in cocktail dresses, dueling sweet sixteens and dueling (un)fabulous forty-year-olds (and one pinot-sodden fifty-year-old), musical ineptitude galore, and Jill Zarin remaining the same old Jill Zarin – filled with a plethora of advice, snarkitude, and red-headed fury; proving that she alone will drive this jalopy ‘til it drives no more. Go, Jill, Go!

The Season Finale begins with The Countess speaking (“Chic, C’est La Vie! Si bon! Si bon!”) to her music producer – naturally they are discussing what a runaway success her song Chic, C’est La Vie will become. Chris surprises LuAnn with a friend of his, who just happened to stop by – a friend who just happens to be Natalie King Cole.

Last night’s episode of Real Housewives of New York City was all about vaginas, vacations, and Pinot… again. Jill Zarin is hosting an anti-bullying fundraiser, and while guests are paying $200 to attend, the irony of Jill championing this event is priceless. Kelly accidentally sees Sonja’s ladybits, Cindy takes her good friends on a “brunettes only” weekend, New Housewife Pinot Grigio high-jacks Jill’s charity event, and sweet LuAnn just wants everyone to get along, dammit!

The episode begins with LuAnn and Sun-yah meeting for lunch to discuss a girls trip. LuAnn is planning to “break the tension” between the ladies. Since this is a classy restaurant, Sonja, predictably arrives straight from the gym with a fur thrown over her sports bra. Sonja states she wants to go to Italy for Truffle Season (that’s a thing?) because “everyone will be there!” Everyone except the NY Housewives, that is, because LuAnn is just so over Italy and wants to vacation somewhere exotic. Somewhere like Morocco, which is the Paris of the Middle East, didn’t you know? Bravo, desperate to capitalize on a repeat of Scary Island, decides Luann must “invite” all the ladies, but LuAnn has some reservations about Kelly being included because no one wants “Scary Desert” on the horizon. Well, no one but Bravo, because ratings are everything dah-ling, so Kelly is IN!

Ahh, Real Housewives of New York…this week we say G’day to Jill (have you missed her?  She missed you!), Sonja reveals the housewives’ pecking order to newbie Cindy, Kelly and Ramona call a truce (??), LuAnn makes it clear that shopping parties are not her glass of pinot cup of tea, and Alex finds her (slightly grating) voice when it comes to holding her own.

Jill returns to lunch with LuAnn, Kelly and Sonja, and the first thing out of Jill’s mouth is that she is done mouthing off about others.  No. More. Gossip. From. Jill.  And 5-4-3-2… “Oh, I want to be out of the gossip and the garbage, but sometimes I get sucked back in…”  Kelly’s threat drunk text from Ramona resurfaces and the ladies learn Kelly is going to meet Ramona for lunch the following day.  Sonja is concerned that Kelly isn’t quite ready to confront meet with Ramona, and thus begins the role-playing to prepare Kelly for the inevitable barrage of Rameddling.  If Ramona ever gets the flu this season, I think Sonja could easily just grab a glass of pinot grigio, do Ramona better than Ramona does Ramona, and we viewers would be none the wiser.

This episode of Real Housewives of New York City was scattered, hard to follow, and all over the place – so the writing is reflective of how difficult it is to connect the plot points. The episode, which Bravo dubbed “Ramona’d” was all about Ramona Singer unleashing her Pinot Personality and letting her cray-cray take over, I call that Cramona. Crazy Ramona. We’ve seen it before from Mrs. Mario Singer – however not like this, but lets start out the recapping by focusing on another lady who is losing her marbles and a different one who is losing her teeth. Sonja Morgan and Cindy Barshop take it away!

Replacing Jill Zarin this season as Empress of the frienemies, Sonja agreed to trek all the long way downtown to TriBeCa and meet Cindy for some shopping and designer schmoozing at Vivienne Tam and then lunch at Cipriani. Unfortunately, when Sonja arrived Cindy had some news: after having a few too many Martinis at Ramona’s event the previous night, she devoured a bunch of pistachios and the veneers on her two front teeth fell off! A likely story if I’ve ever heard one –I personally think she took a drunken tumble after all those martinis. It happens to the best of us. :-) The ladies proceed into the store where Cindy actually pulls out the broken front teeth, which she has brought with her in a Ziplock baggie along with an accompanying tube of Fixadent. While in Vivienne Tam Cindy, asks Sonja to help her put her teeth back in. Yuck. Sonja is understandably grossed out! Who wants to eat lunch after all that? Sonja still does, actually.

Despite the delay of the Real Housewives of New York City season 4 in favor of the all new Real Housewives of Miami and reports that Bravo postponed the show for being too boring, the NYC Housewives continue to insist the new season will be great!

Case in point, Kelly Kirazy Bensimon, who even goes as far as to state the new season will be better and more authentic due to the absence of Bethenny Frankel. Oh yes she did!

“There was the Bethenny character that flew in and out and made all this drama,” Kelly tells the HollywoodLife. “It’s a totally different season [now] — totally different show.”

Oh, but it gets better. “People think that without Bethenny, ‘Is the show going to be able to last?,’” Kelly says. “It was so unauthentic for the past two seasons. The great thing about this season is that, because the relationships are now three to four years old, the actual situations are organic. They are deep and they hurt.”

So is Kelly happy Bethenny is gone? “I would never say that I’m glad,” answers Kelly. “She was a cast mate on the show and they chose her. Now she’s gone and the show is taking a completely different direction, which is really exciting.”

Kelly goes on to assure fans of the show that this season will not be a let down because there was plenty of drama to go around! “It’s drama that you have — drama that I have with my friends,” she explains. “It’s going to attract so many more viewers because it has depth. It’s not topical drama. I’m making memories [and] there are some very painful moments for me.” Whatever that means.

Bravo announced the 4th season of the RHONY will air in late spring.

There’s a new update in Crazygate, just days after posting nonsensical rants on her Twitter page, Kelly Bensimon has now threatened to quit her facebook page.

Apparently the nutty Real Housewives of New York City star is tired of the negative comments by the haters. “I will be deleting this page by the end of the week,” Kelly wrote on her personal facebook account last night. “So for those who wish to stay a fan please go to my fanpage .And for those who choose not to…all the best. Please don’t follow me on Twitter and Facebook, it’s not good for you to waste time, with people you dislike…and end up getting blocked or deleted from my web team.”

Well that was then and this now, as it seems Kelly’s other personality had a change of heart. She posted early this morning that she would be keeping her facebook page after all.

“We will NOT be deleting this account, but will be adding a new page in addition to the fan page. write what you want, and say what you feel. I am flattered by lovers and haters, but indifference makes me sad. enjoy the day.”

Tonight is the long awaited and highly anticipated premier night of the Real Housewives of New York City, and the claws are set to come out in this third season opener.

Tonight’s episode will show most of the Housewives ganging up on the newly pregnant Bethenny Frankel. We will also see the widely reported rift between former BFFs, Bethenny, 39, and Jill Zarin. Apparently, things took a turn for the worse between the two when Bethenny told Jill she needed to find a new hobby and stop meddling in her life.

Then it’s Kelly Bensimon’s turn, and she has a big bone to pick with Bethenny after their very volatile relationship last season.

“She’s scary,” snaps Kelly. “I would never cross me because she’d attack me or say something bad. I was like, ‘that does not a friend make.’ It’s weird. That’s not a friend, that’s a foe. She’s got issues. I mean, come on, she ‘invented the margarita,’ says Kelly, taking a dig at Bethenny’s SkinnyGirl margarita franchise.

As we reported yesterday, it seems as the season moves along, it will become a Bethenny, Alex & Ramona team vs the Jill, LuAnn & Kelly team.

The third season premiers tonight at 10 p.m.ET on Bravo.
