Kelly Bensimon return to RHONY?

I don’t know why Kelly Bensimon would ever return to Real Housewives of New York, but I would be pumped if she did. Sure, it wasn’t the best look for her, but she really made good TV. I will never in my life forget her weird rant about Al Sharpton and jelly beans while she was arguing with Bethenny Frankel on Scary Island.

Bethenny made a return to RHONY and even Jill Zarin will appear next season, so why not bring back Kelly? Well, apparently this is a possibility.


I feel bad writing this because there really is no “news” here. I can’t break the news that Kelly will bring her lovable brand of crazy back to Real Housewives of New York. However, Page Six reports that Andy Cohen did ask Kelly if she would appear again.

I mean, if Jill Zarin is allowed back after all the drama she caused for Andy, we know that anything is possible.

Apparently Kelly was asked about the possibility of a return to the show when she was at Boca Beach Club and she avoided the questions. If she was definitely against this idea, she probably would have just shut down the rumors- right? So maybe there’s some hope.

Supposedly she initially denied to be filmed since a “source” alleges “Kelly only wants to go back on the show if the scenes are authentic, with her real friends.” Sure, that’s ideal situation, but that’s obviously not the case when it comes to most of the people who are on these Real Housewives shows.

But, Kelly did go to Luann de Lesseps’s wedding which Dorinda Medley and Jill also attended, so maybe she would be okay filming with those people. And no offense, but what else is she doing these days? She might as well get paid to go film group lunches and go on vacations… although it was the vacation episodes where we really saw Kelly become undone. I doubt she would ever want to go one of those trips again, but maybe if the price is right.

The same Page Six post also name dropped that Kelly’s friends that refused to film with her included Elizabeth Hurley and Elle Macpherson.

I would love to see her come back to the show and go off the rails against Bethenny Frankel again. It would be quite nostalgic.
