Did she or didn’t she? Vote for Trump that is! Kelly Bensimon frankly doesn’t give a damn who Ramona Singer voted for. Furthermore, she thinks Carole Radziwill making a big deal out of her co-stars politics is “tacky.” And we know how Kelly is up here with her head in the clouds, so what she thinks matters.
Pointing out the obvious, Kelly scoffed that Real Housewives Of New York is “not the New York Times” and has no business getting involved politics.
“I don’t know Carole at all,” Kelly added, “but I just think slamming anyone for their political views is tacky.” Instead Kelly suggested that Carole use this as a learning opportunity – not a judging one!

“I think we all have to remember it’s reality TV,” continued Kelly. “It’s really not legitimate, so for us to be having those kinds of conversations on reality TV, I think that’s tacky. It’s just tacky.”

Kelly does make an exception, however – for charity. “Unless they were, like, doing something really amazing or they were making an impact, that might be a different story. But just to talk and argue about it?” she told Us Weekly. “It’s rude. It’s very uneducated.”
Since Kelly has been the victim of ‘systematic bullying,’ she is sensitive to anyone being harassed for their beliefs. After the election, a few tweets she made “about respecting our new president” earned her a tongue lashing. “So I really just like to keep my politics to myself now.”
Kelly’s advice for countering political opposition is to approach the situation with respect. “The only thing that I can really say and that I constantly repeat is that it’s about what you do every single day. You’re your own politician.”
While I want to say that Kelly should keep all her words to herself, I do think she makes a fair point in this instance. We are talking about women who can spend a season arguing about copycat hair styles. Or is this a relevant representation of life imitating art considering how contentious the election was and continues to be?
Personally, I prefer my reality TV to be tacky in the way of bad etiquette dramas or silly feuds about pinot and vacations and would appreciate if Housewives stayed out of ALL super personal issues like health detectives, drug and alcohol addiction, outing affairs, meddling with the law, accusations about rape, or well, Trump. I watch Real Housewives to get a break from all the drama of the ‘real world’.
TELL US – IS KELLY CORRECT THAT STIRRING POLITICS INTO RHONY IS “TACKY”? IS CAROLE OUT OF LINE FOR JUDGING RAMONA FOR HER BELIEFS?
