Alum of The Real Housewives of New York, Kelly Bensimon, left the hit series years ago. The supermodel recently caused a stir on the internet due to a podcast interview. On the RHONY, Kelly and then co-star, Bethenny Frankel, didn’t always see eye to eye. They weren’t friends but it seemed that they eventually got to a peaceful place. Now articles are swirling around that Kelly recently said in the podcast interview that Bethenny “didn’t care” about having a miscarriage while shooting the RHONY. According to Page Six, sources close to Kelly said the show “almost ruined her life.”
The source shared, “She feels she was mentally abused. People told her not to do it. Appearing on it affected her making a living and she lost a big portion of her life and opportunity to make money.”
On the podcast Out in the Wild Kelly discussed Bethenny and Bravo honcho, Andy Cohen. Kelly said on the podcast, “Andy doesn’t really like me that much — ’cause I’m like the real deal. Maybe he doesn’t like me because I was in Playboy — maybe he doesn’t like me because I got the cover of Shape.”
“He’s always made me feel like I was not liked,” Kelly continued on the topic of Andy. “I just know and I feel that he does not like me. When he wrote his book I wrote a nice article for him and he wasn’t even appreciative.“
Kelly left reality television years ago and has been focusing on motherhood and her career. Kelly is now thriving in the real estate business! She sells luxury properties as a real estate agent for Dolly Lenz. A few months back, Kelly didn’t rule out returning to reality TV. However; she would likely do a real estate reality show.
I’m all for Kelly returning to the show, but I don’t think it’s something she wants to do. I could totally see her doing a real estate reality show and I think that would be great. It seems like the RHONY was very hard for Kelly and I think she was misunderstood. I think she’s happier and healthier not doing Real Housewives. Perhaps down the road things will change and she will return. Maybe she will make another cameo sometime. I could see that happening!
Thoughts on this all? Should Kelly return to RHONY? Should she do a real estate reality show? Share below!
