Kelly Bensimon Talks Returning To RHONY


By now I’m sure youve heard that Kelly Bensimon will be appearing on this season of RHONY. Wetpaint recently met up with former RHONY cast member Kelly Bensimon where they discussed the model’s brief return this season, how her first meeting with Carole went, and if she would ever considering returning for good!

On her appearances on RHONY this season:   LuAnn asked me to come on with her. She was like, ‘Will you walk in this fashion show for me and surprise all the ladies?’ And I obviously told her that I would. It was really fun. I got to meet Carole Radziwill, who’s incredibly smart, funny, and charming. She said she wanted to meet some guys to snuggle with, so I set her up on some dates.

Did she say how they went?  I don’t know! I didn’t ask her. I didn’t follow up.

RHONJ’s Dina Manzo is going to be first departed Housewife to return to the series. Would Kelly come back? I loved being on the show and meeting these women and observing their lives. The only way that I would actually ever consider coming back is if I could actually show my real life and be able to celebrate who I am, versus being in a scene with women I don’t know. Forcing an undercurrent makes the viewer really unsettled. Just let the cameras roll, let the women go for it. Why do you stop filming? When we were in Morocco, all of the best things that happened were after the cameras finished. Me sitting in my underwear drinking wine with LuAnn and Sonja crying? I mean, that’s like TV gold.

What are your thoughts on Lindsay Lohan telling Andy Cohen to put her mom, Dina Lohan, and Jill Zarin on RHONY?  I’ve met Dina a couple of times with Jill. She seems really nice. I don’t know her well. I love Jill Zarin. I think she’s awesome spirited, and I think Dina could be fun. But I really think they need to showcase how awesome New York is.There are these amazing, type A personalities, and I think they need to tap into that. If they amp it up, then I’m coming on!

Whoa.  Kelly, Jill Zarin, and Dina Lohan?  That would be a major cast shakeup.  Last time Kelly was on the show obviously things got a little intense (Scary Island anyone?), but judging from this interview she seems to be in a pretty good place and I like the idea about showing more NYC! What are your thoughts?  Would you watch Kelly, Jill and Dina?
