Real Housewives of New York City star Kelly Bensimon is explaining her reasons for posing for Playboy magazine in a new interview.
The 43-year-old mother of 2 posed for Playboy back in March of last year, and according to Kelly, her reasons for posing include teaching her daughters and others about a good body image, while also getting sweet revenge on her mean costars.
“I showed like 80 percent. A little boobie, a little butt, ankles,” Kelly told Popeater. “The pictures actually make me look thinner than I was at the time. I really ate a lot. I wanted to be my normal body shape. I wanted to look like myself. Everyone else was on a diet and I was like, ‘No! I want to be myself.'”

Kelly then goes on to add that she also posed to teach her two young daughters, Sea Louis, 12, and Thaddeus Ann, 10, about a healthy body image plus to “be sexy and have fun” later on in their lives. “I think some people were wondering … I have two kids, isn’t that bad? But I think no; I want my kids to be happy and healthy and later on in their lives, be sexy and have fun. I don’t want them to think that having an eating disorder is cool, because it’s not!”
Reason #3? To exact revenge on her costars including Bethenny Frankel whom she believes bullied her on the RHONY. “I think the ladies were shocked by it,” revealed Kelly. “I think they thought, ‘We tried to take you down and now you are doing Playboy, what?! And now I have Playboy so they are like, ‘Wait a minute. This is not working!'”
Ah, nice to have the old
cra-cra Kelly back.
