Jealousy is a color that I refuse to wear, it looks ugly on everyone. This week is filled with blah, blah, blah. I feel like there is such a underpinning of meanness this season that is so not fun. I am lucky that I stay out of it, because I really don't like being mean. Being mean makes you mean, not successful. I wish is for everyone to enjoy the life they have. Create your own memories.
Alex wanted me to support her for her Brooklyn Fashion Week. I am not a runway size model, and I don't want to be. I have shoulders and a body, I don't look good in everything, and I really am very shy. For Ramona, modeling was a big deal, everything is a big deal. I went out of my comfort zone for Alex and walked. She asked me, and I showed up. That is who I am. If you need something, I will do it. Will I gossip about it? Nope. Will I be there for you? Yup. It didn't matter if I liked it or not, Alex was happy.
PR 101: Bethenny feels that all press is good press. She attacked me on camera and called the newspapers with items to hurt me and my family in the press. She literally tried to destroy my life. When I see her, I will give her any compliment to diffuse her. Try it. It's not fake, it just gets the situation moving in a new direction called forward.
Shopping with Simon was hilarious. He loves shopping. And I really want to help him clean up his image. He needed a shave, a run, a haircut, and then the clothes. I always tell every man who asks me about style: go for a run, take a shower, and then we'll talk. The same rule applies for women, feel good about you first, then we'll decorate you.
Hey Kelly! I do like you :) You're a great mom and career woman and I can tell you have a good disposition on life. Plus you always have an event to go to, which I love. It shows that people want you at their events. Don't let others bring you down (on the show or on these blogs). You may be a little 'flighty' but that's a good thing. I know we only see edited versions of all of you and of course you do not all get along. It is obvious you have great people in your life.
Honey if you did like him bravo for the cover. Glad you're not currently w/ him or that would have been an akward moment.
Thx for the tip. : )
Nice to see you not compete w/ Sonia and her topics of discussion. It's best to just chuckle along.... until you get ot know her better.
I was pleasantly surprised by Ramona. Any analyst on the Street would tell you that Kodak is a horrible company and it was great to see someone on Housewives with enough brains to point that out.
The more I see you on the show, the more I think you should leave the show. You are not mean enough, or controversial enough, for this show (I mean this in the best way possible) I agree that this season is just getting way off and just about nastiness. Go raise your daughters and live your life, you are better than this group of women.
Kelly I have to say that I really didn't like you last season, you just seemed kind of awkward like you weren't sure were you fit in a show where everyone seems to have their particular "role". This season though, I like you so much!! I love how confident you are. I wish you were my personal trainer and we could bond over our single mommyness!!!
Kelly, I have to say I have more respect for you than I did last season and I think your approach to dealing with B is mature and appropriate. But....I just hate that you backed down to Jill tonight! I think you focused to much on your concerns about whether she was angry with you, when the real issue was obviously the fact that she was trying to dictate who you should be friends with. I think you would have been much better off letting her know that you value her friendship, but who you are and are not friends with is your own business.
Kelly-You are a master on trying to turn the tables on a person or conversation... I have rarely seen such swiftness... The bravery you show when others are there backing you up is amazing. Too bad Bethany and many others are smart enough can see right thru the shiny glass! However I have to give props to Bethany for holding it all together. Tip : Remember we are not in Oz !!!
Geez...let it go! I thought that you wanted to move on and let it go with Bethenny. You started talking about PR 101 and 102 with Jill's email....which was very unkind of her to send. Did you even have any scenes with Bethenny this week, so what's your rant all about???? Let it go, look at the good things, put on your rose colored glasses. I think you've been drinking the Jill kool aid for too long and are putting the blame on Bethenny for everything. By the way, you have attacked Bethenny on camera as well, but you don't seem to remember all of that.
What does the "Remember, create your own memories" line have to do with anything you wrote in your blog? Your feel-good cliches make no sense the majority of the time.
Are you for real. You never went out with Max. All you talked about last season was MAX and how you so loved him. Do you forget what the public viewers saw on TV. Do you forget you professed your love for him in a restaurant with the Countless Countess and her nieces about how you loved "Max. Are you Crazy. This comment is as bad as the public viewed you doing everything but almost throwing yourself on the journalist interviewing you for the playboy spread. You even told him that you were going to request only to be interiewed by him. You then made the comment "he wants to date me" and then closing on the show you decided you could not mix business with pleasure. WOW are you really nuts or what!!!!!
I'd like to know how you KNOW that Bethenny is behind those "news" articles attacking you and your family? If you're going to fling accusations, I'm sure that you must have proof so that you can't be sued for making libelous statements (but I'm sure Bethenny won't because she has better things to do with her time).
PLEASE GET RID OF YOUR SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO FAKE "hiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii'S." THEIR KILLING ME TO WATCH!
Kelly STOP! if your pr thing is really how you feel you should have kept it to yourself because it mad you look small. Your scared of Jill and that's too bad I thought you would have been a leader. I don't what kool aid Jill is giving you gals but it's poison
Last season I felt like I was watching a train wreck whenever you were on the camera....but this season, there is something refreshing and pure about what you add to this franchise. I see that you do want to add a new definition to what we conceptualize as a Real Housewife....you want female comraderie, fun times, and exchanging good vibes. While I have been ADDICTED to the RH franchise for 2 years, I agree with you, there is such a mean underpinning to this season that feels almost too unbearable to watch. I used to feel great while watching the show....now just sad and wonder how you all are doing because so many of the fans demonstrate hate and take sides in the most irrational ways. Please keep adding what you add to the show....light, fluffy, fun energy. Don't let anyone steal your joy. It is so important for your girls as they grow and interact with other women. :o)
Why do you keep talking about "B" in your blogs???? She isn't talking about you in hers or on the show....what's up with that you keep referencing her. I think you should stop being "mean"
Kelly, you really should re-watch every episode you have ever been on before you write your blog. You like to forget what really happened and re-visit your alternate universe where things are apparently very different. Forget that you are seen "dating" Max in several episodes last season, you had a whole interview where you talk about dating him. Maybe keeping notes will help you remember what you said and did.
IF YOU AND BETHANNY HAVE MADE UP......AND IT'S "WATER UNDER THE BRIDGE".... WHY DO YOU, YES, YOU KELLY, KEEP BRINGING UP WHAT SHE SUPPOSEDLY DID TO YOU IN THE PRESS!!!! YOUR THE ONE WHO NEEDS TO LET IT GO! B NEVER BRINGS UP, THE "I'M UP HERE...AND YOU'RE DOWN THERE" INCIDENT...WHICH WAS EXTREMELY INSULTING! YOUR NOT AS INNOCENT AS YOU MAKE YOURSELF OUT TO BE!!! IF YOUR FRIENDS NOW....THEN BE FRIENDS!!!!
Keep up the positive attitude Kelly! You're a breath of fresh air on the show. I've only seen the preview of Bethany screaming at you in Florida or whereever and I already am apauled by her and embarassed for her. I'm so glad you never stoop to her level of lowness....
oh kelly, you are mean. always with the not so subtle digs at bethenny and bringing up last year. move on and stop rehashing. you said nasty things to her too and continue to do so. you aren't above it all. you are a mean girl culprit.
Kelly, your attempt at peacemaking with Bethenny was a sham. Doesn't you realize that PR 102 only works if people believe that you are genuine. Admitting that you did it to get people off your back just makes it sound like you are manipulative. Also, Kelly,Who asks pre-teen boys if they are wearing underwear? I know you took back the question, but the creepy factor was still high. How is that not shocking but Avery going home in a cab is?
You keep talking about Bethenny but she has barely said a word about you. And YOU need SIMON'S fashion advice. Not the other way around. You are so irritating.
Kelly, You did seem friendly with Bethanny and I hated when you denied it to Jill. Who is she to tell you who you can be friends with? She's an immature idiot this season and acting more like a high school adolescent. This notion of hers that "if you're my friend, you have to do as I say" is moronic. Don't fall for it!
Kelly..I have watched the show since it started. I will be honest and didn't care for you last season. This season I have been more impressed with you, and think you are a great addition to the show. I have to say as one of the working class...it does kind of get annoying to watch these women who have so much and they stir eachother up, and tear eachother down. I would never do that to a friend of mine. I would love to see a Housewives show with working class people living the struggle. I loved Roseanne as I could identify with the electricity being shut off, weight issues, working and making ends meet. I think you are doing a great job! Keep it up Kelly!
You've mentioned several times this season how Bethenny tried to destroy you and your family with stories to the newspapers, etc. Perhaps your whole world is NYC, but people outside of that world don't hear or care about petty arguments in NYC. In fact, we would have no idea that there were even such stories in existance if you didn't keep bringing it up. RHONYC is seen by people throughout the United States, so here are my PR tips. PR103: The world is bigger than NYC. PR104: Don't tell people about something you don't want them to know about.
We all saw what you said to Bethenny in previous episodes. Whatever she dished up, it's easy to believe that you had it coming.
You sure like to bring up Bethenny a lot. I thought you single-handedly wiped the slate clean? You declared it over and yet still you bring up her and your dislike for her whenever possible, and tonight you didn't even have any interaction with her! You seem to be the one that holds on to the past. YOU were the one who wrecked your reputation last season because you acted crackers--Bethenny's calling you on it was just her saying what the rest of America was saying. You belong in a straight-jacket.
It's so funny how you contradict yourself. You say how no one should say negative words about others and how everyone should be happy and accept others choices and lalala and then you say how embarrassed you are for Sonja for calling Max her Thursday. She likes men, she has confidence and she doesn't give a crap. So maybe you shouldn't either. Who are you to be embarrassed for her? Get over yourself Kelly. I can't stand you. Here's another contradiction. After last years meeting with Bethenny when you said she's down there and you're up here then you said nothing she does or says has any impact on your life, now you say she almost ruined your life? Make up your mind! That's what being a total full of yourself snob gets you!
Kelly you are a class act. You've maintained your sense of pride and composer when others are rude and sometimes abusive. Well done. I think you've hit the nail on the head concerning Ramona and wine.
Kelly ... you have totally been awesome this season!! You are a very kind person. Ramona is a whack for sure but looking back on this last episode, Jill deserved what she got at the Kodak event and karma is a you know what. She was so haeful with all of the condescending comments she made about Brooklyn fashion week that Alex worked so hard for and also about Ramona's walk down the catwalk when she made herself so vulnerable. She is cruel and you are too good to be her friend. I would be careful with her. She is vicious.
I hate to say that Jill was right, but Jill was right. You ARE a hypocrite! You've been (thankfully) acting nicer toward Bethenny this season, but tonight in the show and in your blog, we find out that you mean none of it. How gross you are with this "PR101", "PR102" thing. It's very fake and it doesn't look good on you. Neither did that yellow dress. One more thing -- give it up already with holding onto 'what Bethenny did to you'. She is honestly trying to bury your past disagreements, but you just won't let it go! You say your channeling a different direction with your fake compliments, but you bring up her past actions toward you anyway. If you say you're moving in a new direction, please, move on! Stop playing the victim.
it was very nice of you to help alex. you did perfect.
romana was way out of line. but come on jill was way worse. and jill of all people should know better.
I realize it's easier to edit yourself when writing a blog as opposed to when filming, but it's getting really painful to watch your segments. Now it's not enough the change channels or fast forward when you're on; during last nights PR 102 pablum the word you were looking for was "deflect" not "deflate". The fact that you don't even know you're using the wrong words is forcing me to dumb-down my vocabulary to write this. And while you used the word "diffuse" correctly in your blog, there is no way you went to Columbia University.
Another week..another dig at Bethenny. Funny..she NEVER mentions you..most of what was in the papers was stuff that people ALREADY KNEW. Are you really this stupid or is it an act b/c if you are this stupid, you need PROFESSIONAL HELP
I love Sonja! What did you expect from Max? He's totally hot and oozed sex appeal. Good for Sonja that she had affectionally named him Thursday! Yeah! A woman who doesn't pretend she's a born-again Virgin! YOU should go out and get a Monday it will set your week off RIGHT! YUM-YUM!
You know you make an incredible point, ironically, one that Jill made early on in season one, and one that she has since forgotten. She said "I lose nothing by saying the words, "I'm Sorry". You are so wise to do what it takes to move forward and to create the most positive environment for yourself and your girls. I think that being on a reality show gives you an enormous responsibility to model behavior that you wish people to admire and want to learn from. Not a platform for spiteful, hateful, nasty cutting remarks about other people. Who wants to hear that! Not me. More and more, I like you, and more and more, I am considering doing something else Thurs night rather than watch such horrible behavior. I think Jill is toxic.
You say you're over Bethenny and over the drama and so above it all and yet YOU are the one that continues to bring up Bethenny in nasty tweets and digs in your blog. Get over it already. Sheesh!
Say what you mean and mean what you say...If you have not forgiven Bethenny then stop saying that you have. If you have truly forgiven her then stop beating this dead horse. By you continuing to bring this up makes it obvious that you are being inauthentic (fake) when you say that you forgave. Let it go.
how sad for you to live your life constantly surrounded by women ( people in general ), who you must always feel so "sad" for. Everyone has so many "issues" and is so jealous of you, that its just so "incredibly" sad for you. thank god your there to give them phony compliments and help them transform their images, so they may feel at least a thread closer to being as wonderful as you! how "fun " for you! Your so "incredibly" charitable. GO KELLY!
I am definitely liking you a lot more this season...but I just dont get why you try to lay blame on Bethennny for all the bad press you recieved last year. Calling someone Madonna does not detroy your reputation...get over it!!! You act like nothing bothers you but clearly Bethenny really does...She has said nothing bad about you this season and all she said last season was that you were acting like you were Madonna and you dont get a long well with other women...which is clearly evident. YOUR bad press was about a man YOU chose to associate with. And the way you acted last season.
