Kelly Bensimon Says She is Ready To Make A Reality Television Comeback

Real Housewives of New York come and go. Some stay visible in the public eye after leaving the show, like Carole Radziwill. And some fade away like Jules Wainstein and Kristen Taekman. Still others make occasional returns, like Heather Thomson and Jill Zarin. And one former New York Housewife even came back full time, Bethenny Frankel.

A past New York Housewife we have not heard much from lately is Kelly Bensimon, she of the meandering conversation and the confusing Kelly speak. Although she popped up for a few guest appearances on New York after Bravo’s major casting reboot after Season 4, Kelly has not been on the show in several years. She is now sharing an update on what she has been doing-and hinting that she might be ready to rejoin the reality television world!

RHONY-Bethenny-Frankel-Dorinda-Medley

Last season on Real Housewives of New York, viewers saw the break up of the friendship of Bethenny Frankel and Carole Radziwill. The heartache continued for Bethenny offscreen with the death of her on-again-off-again boyfriend Dennis Shields from a suspected drug overdose.

Bethenny had been super private about their relationship. It meant Dennis rarely appeared on RHONY even though the pair began dating in 2016.  So it’s been surprising to hear moree about their relationship since his death. Bethenny revealed in the premiere for season 11 that she’s been texting Dennis since he died. She also admitted that her daughter Bryn Hoppy texted him as well even though she doesn’t seem to understand the finality of Dennis’ death.
Is Tinsley Mortimer of Real Housewives Of New York “Over Men”?
Wealthy ex-husbands and mug shots can land you a role on a reality TV franchise. Just ask Tinsley Mortimer who joined the cast of Real Housewives of New York two seasons back with both “credentials.”
Tinsley came on RHONY seeking her happily-ever-after, again. So two seasons ago, former castmate Carole Radziwill helped Tinsley with her #relationshipgoals by introducing her to Scott Kluth, a Chicago resident and Coupon Cabin CEO.  Their first date felt like a case of opposites attract. The down-to-earth Midwesterner and teenage girl trapped in an aging socialite’s body locked lips in a very public display. And their on-again-off-again relationship has provided the only a major storyline for Tinsley ever since. Apparently, that relationship is “off.” Again.

RHONY-Dorinda-Medley

Triangles are the strongest shape in the world. That’s not the case when it comes to friendship. At the end of last season on the Real Housewives of New York, the friendship of Luann de Lesseps and Dorinda Medley was reeling from some heavy, alcohol-laced hits. That meant Dorinda went from being the only cast member to be invited to Luann’s wedding to Tom D’Agostino—remember him?—to an enemy combatant. A frenemy who heckled Luann mercilessly during her cabaret show with cries of “Jovani.”

The Season 11 premiere of RHONY proved those wounds are still fresh. And the addition of  Barbara Kavovit’s as a Friend of the Housewives is just adding salt to those wounds. And, apparently, creating a toxic friendship triangle. Barbara also attended that cursed wedding. Even after she was picked up on former Real Housewives cast member Carole Radziwill’s microphone predicting that Luann would “rather go through with it and get divorced than call it off.”

Real Housewives Of New York City’s Tinsley Mortimer Breaks Up With Scott Kluth-Again

There are a few Real Housewives that fly under the radar year after year, yet continue to have their contracts renewed. Like Cynthia Bailey from the Real Housewives of Atlanta. And Stephanie Hollman of the Real Housewives of DallasFor the most part, these women are well-adjusted, good natured and don’t stir up a lot of trouble. I guess everyone can’t be a drama queen!

Tinsley Mortimer from the Real Housewives of New York also falls into that category. The most dramatic thing about her has been her on-again, off-again long distance relationship with Chicago resident and Coupon Cabin CEO Scott Kluth. Which, when I think about it, has been pretty dramatic at times.

Instagram Roundup

There’s nothing like some mother/child time, right? Kelly Dodd took her daughter Jolie to Phoenix via private jet. How Lala Kent of her! Teen Mom star Jenelle Evans took the low key route. She just posted a selfie with her baby girl.

Kristin Cavallari shared photos with her children taking care of a baby bird. Shamari DeVoe shared a throwback photo breastfeeding her twin boys. This is probably going to get some attention, because… well, it’s 2019. People are just looking for reasons to be offended these days.

It felt like there were Real Housewives meetups happening all over the country this week. Or at least that’s what it seemed like when I scroll through my Instagram feed. Kandi Burruss supported Beverly Hills Housewife Erika Jayne at her Atlanta concert. Potomac Housewives Gizelle Bryant hung out with Real Housewives of Atlanta OG NeNe Leakes. Warning: they applied way too much airbrush to their IG photo. Cynthia Bailey left the ATL to hang out with Dorinda Medley in New York City.

Bravo worlds collided when Vanderpump Rules cast members Stassi Schroeder and Beau Clark spent time with (the remaining) Summer House stars Kyle Cooke, Carl Radke, and Amanda Batula.

Real Housewives of Dallas stars Stephanie Hollman and Brandi Redmond shared photos hanging with their kids. Meanwhile, their costar Cary Deuber shared a photo of her face all marked up and ready for a cosmetic procedure. Orange County Housewife Shannon Beador followed her lead. Shannon posted a photo of herself getting some cosmetic enhancements. This is a social media trend that I just don’t understand.

Captain Lee Rosbach and Katie Chastain attended an event in Florida with Below Deck alum Connie Arias. Josiah Carter shared a picture of himself  Ashton Pienaar, Ross Inia, and Adrian Martin. Meanwhile, the two most controversial cast members (who haven’t been fired yet) Rhylee Gerber and Laura Betancourt took a selfie while kayaking.

Southern Charm stars Cameran Eubanks, Craig Conover, Chelsea Meissner, and Whitney Sudler-Smith enjoyed some quality time. Naomie Olindo shared an “after” photo following some Botox injections. Kathryn Dennis slayed in a hot pink outfit at her brother’s wedding.

Teen Mom and star of the upcoming Ex on the Beach season Farrah Abraham channeled her inner Ariana Grande (who was inspired by Mean Girls) for a photo.

90 Day Fiance couples Jonathan Rivera and Fernanda Flores, Ashley Martson and Jay Smith, and David Toborowsky and Annie Suwan let us all know that their relationships are still going strong with some photos.

Real Housewives of New Jersey cast member Melissa Gorga and her daughter Antonia posed for a photo with Jennifer Lopez.
