Kelly Bensimon – Faker Than A Gucci Bag In Bangkok
Well the producers of The Real Housewives of New York City, have unleashed Kelly Bensimon on the viewer and does anyone like what they see?
As a member of a pretty superficial cast, she definitely wins the prize for the fakest and most delusional. On the latest episode Kelly asked Bethenny to meet her to discuss Bethenny’s rude comment about her at the charity committee meeting. You know the meeting when Kelly refused to have her name on the invite for some spurious reason. Possibly because she is so well known. Not! Last time a looked people only went on reality TV shows to raise their profile.
So Bethenny turns up at the designated time and Kelly is half an hour late (what would Luann think of that?) and clearly did not give a rats about it and did not apologise.
She then rambled on at Bethenny about how rude she was, and how Kelly was running on a higher plane then Bethenny. I must say I thought it showed all of Bethenny’s restraint not to glass her. Also did anyone else think Kelly at times did not make sense? Prescription drugs/diet pills anyone?
Anyway she then left to meet her date – and oh my god if I had been him I would have run. She looked like some crazy woman, I am sure he could not wait to get out of there.
Anyway just so we know how classy Kelly is she has decided to pose for Playboy which as we know is classier then Ralph. Just. Full story on Dlisted.
Anyway back to this episode and just when you think Kelly wins the prize of ego of the week, along comes Ramona. Ramona who had been bonding with Kelly was peeved when she read an article where Kelly said something about teaching the Housewives about fashion. Apparently Ramona worked in fashion for years. Anyway when she called Kelly on it, Kelly immediately retracted and said “Oh no not you,” which placated Ramona’s ego.
A few other points about the episode:
- Mario having a go at Jill about taking so long to get a tennis partner for match with Ramona and Mario (who apparently was a former pro). I like Jill and good on her for trying to make sure she is not put at a disadvantage;
- Mario cracked it with Jill who took it quite well really, he was being a prick. Bobby just stood there, but then why should he step in Jill should be able to handle herself.
- The other big fight of the episode was Simon and Alex with you guessed it Ramona. Ramona was peeved that she had invited them to a party and they had not told her that there were topless photos coming out of Alex in the ensuing days. The way she was going on you would have thought they had concealed that they were both up on child sex slave charges. Ironic considering if Ramona was offered a Playboy spread she would do it.
