Kelly talks shopping with Simon, walking in Fashion Weekend, and diffusing Bethenny's attacks!

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.
