Every Thursday, celebrate #TBT with us as we open the vault to share photos of Bravolebrities before they were famous--or revisit memorable moments from our shows. This week to honor New York's Fashion Week, we have an appropriate clip: things get awkward between Kelly Killoren-Bensimon and Bethenny Frankel at a fashion show.
During Season 2 of The Real Housewives of New York City, cast mates Bethenny Frankel and Kelly Killoren-Bensimon were seated next to each other at a Jill Stuart show during New York Fashion Week, and tried to make small talk. It didn't really work.
Bethenny said that up until then, Kelly "never gave me the time of day" and being seated next to her was "uncomfortable because there's just a tension." Their attempt at a conversation did little to remedy things.
While they chatted about designers and photographers, each felt the other was trying to name-drop and one-up the other. And when Bethenny explains she isn't really into attending fashion shows, Kelly comes back with an underhanded burn: "But, yeah, that's cute though!"
Kelly's so full of herself and not as famous as she thinks...I'm glad she's gone. i hate her fake smile. Dumb as a stump.
I love you Bethenny! BUT I'm not yet convinced about your talk show! I have seen you dance and girl you can dance! BUT on you show it seems a bit awkward!! Why? I will be honest I haven't been watching faithfully like I did your shows on Bravo! I guess when when you invite Jill on is when I will start watching!! or maybe Teresa? now that I would watch!! You need your housewife fans aboard! You need to get into the rhythm of things! You need a few good shows! So invite Jill on make amends, wash your hands of the feud and move on! She did at one point have very good intentions for you! You need to learn how to move past things with people! Especially with your mom! Remember not everyone was meant to be a mom! She obviously did some things right! You turned out great!
