Kelly Bensimon on RHONY and Bethenny Frankel: “I was hung out to dry.”
“I’m not tuning in this season (of RHONY),” she breezily admitted, “But I saw Dorinda (Medley) in real life.”
Bensimon claims to watch very little television and says she’s a fan of the E! reality show Botched and the TV Land scripted series Younger.
Bensimon had no qualms about cutting to the chase, declaring that Bethenny Frankel is the reason she’s no longer on the show and that she cannot imagine Frankel would ever consent to film with her. So, a return to the franchise in the near future is highly unlikely.
In Bensimon’s final season of the show, as she recalls, producers
were getting Frankel, the “Skinny Girl”, poised for a spinoff show. In the process, Bensimon relates, she was “hung out to dry.”
In the interview, she vacillates between speaking kindly of producers and implying that a lot of the “crazy”
viewers witnessed (i.e. Scary Island) was attributable to editing.
