Just when you thought it was over, Bravo comes up with a 14th episode called the "Lost Footage." But will it be the last footage? I have to say my favorite part of the "Last Footage" episode was when Jill Zarin's mom Gloria comments on the press surrounding her daughter's argument with the Alex and Simon. The season starts off with the NY Post as the new housewife. You hear more about the NY Post than you do about me. As a journalist for the NY Post's Page Six Magazine, good content is not easy to find. So when reality TV stars fight in gossip papers there is nothing better. It's free and it's easy, all you have to do is add quotation marks and you have an article.
There was a scene with one of my best friends, French fashion stylist Isabel Dupre, who worked at Elle for over 10 years with my ex-husband. She is not only a great friend, but also one of the most revered fashion stylists in the industry. She came over to my house to go through my closet, which is organized like a department store. The infamous closet has a life of its own and has been featured in magazines such as InStyle, OK, and the Japanese Harpers Bazaar. It's impossible for me to part with jeans I'll probably never even wear again, so when Isabel offered to weed through my fashion garden, I couldn't say no.
Instead of donating my clothes to the Salvation Army, I decided to donate them to a battered women organization. I am not assuming they want to wear my clothes, but if they can get 10 dollars from one of my dresses to help themselves out of a bad situation, then I have done my job. That's the kind of charity I like. Actually knowing that what I'm doing can help someone. I don't need to throw a party - I'd rather just do something. The closet cleanout scene was bittersweet. I got to help women in need, but I had to part with clothing that I never thought I would give away.
How did Kelley get a $15 million dollar house in the Hamptons and a great apartment in NYC? It surely wasnt money she earned modelling or writing. Did her ex really have that much money? She is truly a PIA and I cant imagine anyone wanting to be friends with her.
Kelly-I hope that Bravo keeps you as #6, you added so much glamour and class to the show this season. You were a huge and interesting contrast to the nasty little back-biting others that are so ridiculously obnoxious. Jealous is the only word I can conjure up about Jill, Countess, Ramona, and most of all Bethenny towards you at the reunion show. I did think Jill reached out as a friend to you, but it was sad to see her snap and bite you during the reunion. Snappy like her awful chihuahua, Ginger. Frankly I think Countess is way jealous of you....lets face it, she looks way OLDER. Alex is very classy and has the same sense of dignity as you, so she does not count. The "kelly world" phase basically means you will not step down to their meanness and hatefulness. You hold yourself to a higher standard and will not lower yourself to their school-girl bickering and competitiveness. I got it when you said, "can't we talk about something interesting". Watching the others attack and hurt made me cringe with embarrassment. Keep hanging strong...you should think about moving on to a talk show, or hosting Project Runway or something else, you would dazzle!
New York Society Girl, blog posted 5/29/09 - You Nailed It! You articulated perfectly what so many viewers are thinking. Kelly, you continually come off as shallow, selfish, and ditzy. You name-drop constantly as if by association, you become more important. You're probably a very nice person, but you're so intent on "impressing" that you end up making no sense. I'd say "just be yourself", but that may be worse. Guess your 15 minutes is up. I'd lay low for awhile if I were you.
Well, I just scanned all these blogs and I have to say, so many people hit the nail on the head so beautifully there's really not much more to say. It's pretty clear that the other housewives aren't particularly fond of you, and I am one of the majority of the viewers that just wishes you would go away. Please do us all a favor and go.....your own show??? That's an utter joke. And to reiterate what so many others said, why in the world would any of those other women be jealous of you? Maybe that's what you have to say to get past all the hurtful things that have been said to you, but that doesn't change the fact that you have always come across as a very shallow, ditzy, and boring person. Or maybe you're just thinking that all of the viewers that have made these comments are jealous too. PLEASE, just get over yourself!!!!
Kelly, The first piece of advice I give you is to look up "humility" in the dictionary. That is something that you sorely lack. It is in very poor taste to boast about yourself (which you do constantly), and you are not Mother Teresa because you went through "your famous" closet and had one of your minions prepare your clothing for contribution--some horrible, some very nice. I would have thought that with all the various episodes of RHONY you might see how self centered you are!! I guess it's too hard to see through the rose colored glasses, which in your case really should be referred to as mirrors--you seem to be the only thing you see or focus upon; additionally, you don't have the ability to be gracious about the gifts you have been given. Check out that word in the dictionary, it might give you some insight as to what you are missing. It is never my intention to slam anyone, but you just beg for it with all that undeserved arrogance...and if you are truly educated, you will realize that it is completely disrespectful to be late to everything--particularly an event that you host. The message is that your time is more valuable than everyone else's...do you get the drift???
Kelly, wow seriously I think you should take a long look at the fact that two of these women have stated you walk away and snub them when they see you at parties. You started this battle, take some responsiblity for your actions because you come off like a mean person. It seems like you are hurt when you decide you want to speak to them, but why should they be nice when you have snubbed them? You snub Behanny and LuAnn, you barely act like Alex exhists, you are not very nice to Ramona and Jill told you at the reunion you didn't make her feel like you spent any time with the show. I want to be a fan but you need to get real with your actions before that will ever happen and honey I am from the midwest, down to earth etc and you would not fit in with those actions.
Kelly, I can't understand how you could commit to a show without ever watching.If you had maybe you would have realized that you would not fit in.It seemed to me that you don't put much effort into relationships with other women.That's unfortunate for you.You can't take people for granted and use your kids as an excuse for being late, etc.A phone call before the fact, not after.I think you should talk with a counselor to sort out your thoughts. Sometimes we don't realize how we are perceived by others.That being said , I do wish you and your children a good life.
big deal Kelly on giving away some scrappy clothes you would never wear anyway - try giving away something that doesn't look like a dog slept on it - all the clothing in your closet and they only showed a small pile on the bed - and you acted like you were giving away the crown jewels
Big whoop-de-do, you gave away some clothes. Call it charitable all you want, I call it cleaning out your closet. And by the way, Salvation Army helps loads of people who are down and out and has done so for decades. Way to disrespect Salvation Army and all the work they do by implying that giving to a battered woman's shelter is somehow "more" charitable. Kelly's world is the land of narcissism, tardiness, and fragmented sentences full of the word "like". I'll pass.
I don't have fame, money or a hot boyfriend...and I would never want to be you. You say people are jealous of you?! You are a joke. You rarely make any sense. Those clothes you gave away were not anything that a person in need would wear and where do you get off saying they can sell it for $10.00. The whole point of charity is to help a person in need, not to dump off shit you don't want onto people who then would have to find a half-wit to sell it to just to make a few bucks? I'd vote you off too. "Kelly Time" is short for "I only give a shit about me and no one else" Gee I am so fun. Got to go now I have some cartwheels to turn...those are free remember?
You Rock Kelly. Stick with Alex!!! As you stated she's smart and genuine. Who really wants to be around Luann or Jill. They are nothing without their husbands and hey! Luann doesn't have one anymore so who is she??? No one!!
Kelly, I was looking forward to a new "housewife" as it usually bring on the lol's. Unfortunately, right from the start you seemd mean. I understand that Bethenny is the type of personality that needs getting used to, especially if your not used to it, but you definitely did not give her a chance. I realize that she had a chip on her shoulder about you from the get, but she did try & make peace. The "I'm up here & you're down here" comment, for me, was when I started to dislike you, especially since you arranged this meet with the specific purpose to clear the air and then show up almost an hour late. I also have a very hard time believing that you did not know what you were saying when you made that "up here.. down here" comment. You do come off as very nasty. I know it makes for great ratings, but do you really want the general population thinking you are that nasty of a person. Is the money worth it? Is it possible that your a nice person and we aren't seeing it b/c that does not make for good ratings? I sincerely hope so, for both you & your girls!
Hey there Kellly, first and far most I enjoy your kinder spirit. I also work in fashion. (appx. 11ys now) with Laundry, Tahari, CKJeans (Linda Wacner_pls excuse this mis-spelling of her name). I worked with Mark Mendelson (im sure you heard of him) Anyhow I do believe the older women on that show are jealous of u as well as insecure. I say rock on with you confidence and positive attitude, and most importantly your amazing motherhood. You go Kelly!
ROCK ON! show them with whom they are messing with. I hope u keep smiling.
Big Kelly Fan! Be well
I enjoy watching the show. Kelly you add a bit of spice to the old house wifes. However, you can only be out to lunch for a period of time. I would like to see you be stronger in you part, not acting like you have strength. Barbara
It's pretty obvious that you can't even make a simple comment without everyone jumping down your throat. I liked that you joined the show this season. I think you definitely mix things up a little and make it a little more interesting. I think alot of you what you say just comes out all wrong. I have a sister just like you - bless her heart - and I know how she really is even though she does come across as sort of nasty and condescending at times. My point is I really don't think you are this horrible person that everybody else seems to want to hate. I wish you the best of luck and hope to see you back next season.
Did everyone catch Kelly's comment about "leaning down" when speaking to her stylist to give away her clothes? Kelly just confirmed her "I'm higher/self important than everyone" attitude that she tried to deny in a very yellowed tail way. And for true New Yorkers, you would know and agree that Bethany is just a true breed. Kelly is an import to "New York's high society" but thin skinned and a just a fraidy cat who is unable to adequately defend her pretentious arrogance. True New Yorkers come at you direct, and honestly, though unfamiliar people would say a bit harshly-but really, it's just directness. As much as Kelly tries, she proves she more the Greenwich, CT type: Pretentious, obnoxious, snobby and pretends to participate in charity, but really does it for convenience and never friendly. Mid-west people are just sown-home humble people, and Kelly has lost her mid-west identity. I'm really surprised no one has begun throwing eggs at her when she "runs" in her neighborhood. BWT, I was born and raised in CT and pretty much ran the streets of NYC for 20yrs-West to East side, uptown to downtown-hec, even the grimy meat market district that has now become popular -so I actually speak from a position of knowledge and can call Kelly out!
Thanks to commentator Nikki I have nothing to add except "rock on"!!
"Keep your head up. All of the women on the show [with the exception of Alex] are insanely jealous of you. You are everything that they wish they were: Tall, beautiful, sexy, classy, accomplished, fashionable, well-connected, glamorous, well-traveled, and fabulous. When you walk into a room, people look. You have that thing that money and fame cannot buy. Je ne sais quoi.
I know. I have been targeted by "mean girls" like Bethenny and Jill since the age of twelve. What these shrews cannot be, they seek to destroy. They have turned me off.
Keep it classy. I hope that Bravo does the same."
Anyone who makes comments about other people being jealous must have the same innate qualities. None of the other women are jealous of Kelly. They have absolutley NO reason to be. It only exist in the person who is truly an envious jealous person to make comments like that. You should not be jealous of anyone...anything can happen to anyone at any moment...so be as nice as you can to your fellow man/woman.
Geez, I wish kelly could think like that and try to find some goodness in all people, even if they don't have all the dough she claims to have.
Didn't she say she didn't like the reunion show because the women would be promoting their businesses. And yet here in this blog she is promoting her jewelry line? Seriously Bravo, if you bring Kelly back for another season, I will not watch this show anymore. Kelly is rude, obnoxious, self-obsessed, oblivious, and just plain not fun or entertaining to watch on RHNY. My vote is to Can Kelly!
Kelly, Okay....I have tried to give you a chance. (IMO) It is quite obvious that you have not worked in decades. If you had, than your personality would be quite different. No one in there right mind would write or say the things you do. I read your article in page six magazine. It was horrible, just horrible. I am not going to compare you to a child because there is no comparison. You were fired from the Clarins campaign for good reason. You are extremely difficult and have no idea what is going on in the real world. If Marc Jacobs wanted you to be one of his models...He would of ASKED YOU! You are way to dumb for a 40plus woman. Seems to me that SOMEONE told you to GO GET A JOB!. You have no idea what you are suppose to be doing. So search your background and find something you might be good at. A degree from Columbia doesn't mean anything to a person like you. Its the Student!
You endured a lot of jealously? Wow, you are such a source of a good belly laugh! Why would ANYONE be jealous of you???
Kelly, you are the only NYC houswife I don't like. Next to Ramona. You are simply "not new york"!!!!!! Nothing about you says new york. You are full of yourself you try to act sexy and appealing, all we have to do is hear your "Barney" the purple dinasaur voice and I am on the floor laughing. You remind me of California girl the groopy type that would sleep with anybody just to meet the band. Get over yourself and learn something from Bethanny or Jill. The true New Yorkers of this show. Or better yet, quit and join the hillbillie club. Sorry to be so bold, but people like you can only be spoken to in this manner.
I am starting to think that there are just a bunch of haters out there. Go on with your beautiful self and ignore everyone else!
No one in their right mind would be jealous of you. You are rude, arrogant and never seem to have a clue about what is going on. Don't be so quick to be cocky. I would suggest you watch the episodes and see how dumb you sound when you are talking to Bethany.
Memo to Kelly: You cleaned your closet - well, actually you had someone else clean your closet while you watched - that is not charity. It's housekeeping. If you want to be charitable, go down to that woman's shelter and put in a few hours.
Maybe Bravo wants to come to my house and tape me sitting on the couch while my cleaning lady vacumns.
Please please Bravo do not make us watch this train wreck for another season. Uhhhh. I'd rather watch something really real. Get Rid of Kelly!
Please...just please with you and your rose colored glasses! And your own show come on? So we could watch an hour of your "dur what? I like to smell daisies" comments when someone askes you what the capital of Washington is. I'm so happy to see you are so involved with helping out in charity by sitting on the bed while someone else cleans out your closet, all the while you pout "but I liiiiike that one, please don't give it to the battered women I only have it in 3 other colors! Hmfph you are so mean lady that is doing all my work." Really now. Come on.
I want Kelly to come back to the show.
She was very much misunderstood. Let Bethany go.

Last I checked, I'm able to do all these things without venturing into the terrifyingly delusional "Kelly World". And jealousy? Don't kid yourself darling. The unpleasentness you experienced was nothing less than pure, unadulturated loathing.
BRAVO!! PLEASE don't make us watch this boring ego maniac next season. I almost couldn't watch the reunion episode.
Kelly is everything that is wrong about NYC. I will not watch if she returns and I think she has paid people to post positive comments on this blog. No reasonable person could be impressed with her.
This is the saddest show on television. Kelly--God love you, sitting in the floor and watching a stylist clean out your closet of items you cannot possibly ever want of need again is not charity work. Work involves, well, work. Do you know how foolish you look saying that you are "in the trenches? I don't even know what to say to you. I don't want to criticize you--and I doubt anything I would say would make a difference, so I'll just close with a promise to pray for you and your girls.
I hope you stay on for the next series. Being a Housewife myself and mother of 2 boys, I will watch if you come back. People who write ugly and mean blogs are just jumping on the bandwagon with everyone else. I think everyone enjoys looking through rose colored glasses and being in there own little world. And if they say they don't is just really crazy. Come on people does it matter that much??? I believe that the show was edited to show not all your finer moments and it was more focused on the fueds going on. I believe that you get nervous when you are put in an uncomfortable situation and not alway what we want to say comes out like we want it to. I also believe Bethenny was jealous that you never gave her a time of day before the show. She was quick to show everyones faults but hers. I personally think she should be voted off, Is she a Housewife??? NOPE! so she needs to go back to cooking. Good luck Kelly!!
kelly i like you and i think the women of ny c are not the group for you i think the show isentertaining , but not real . i truly think your nice and may have a good hearty , i fear these women think your pretty and have many friends around the world and possibly envy that . IM NOT SAYING THEY ENVY MONEY envy you what you do . thats the way it comes off too me you and beth argument dumb sooo dumb but very entertaining
thanks bravo for the entertainment while im at the gym
I get you, Kelly, and I like you. You make me smile. Keep being you, you are in the wrong 'crowd' here...
Kelly, Please take a serious look at your behavior on the show. First impressions are so very important and my first impression of you was you are selfish, arrogant, and very insecure. Money does not make a person! Sometimes you need to just listen to what someone else has to say and not interrupt all the time. Listen before you respond because sometimes no response sends the best message. When you say something make it something you can back up and don't try to get people to believe you are a true person when your actions and words show different. You appear to me to be very insecure and not very honest. I will pray for your children because they are the ones that will be made fun of at school or anywhere else there is a group of children because everyone knows how cruel children can be.
Kelly, I hope you come back for another season. Unfortunately, I'm hoping this for selfish, quite unsavory reasons: you make the other cast members and the other viewers nuts, and I LOVE watching that.
By far, you have been the most controversial character, and even though your personal story lines are a little boring (ok, a LOT boring)...your interactions with the other cast members are priceless. Please just be yourself with the rest of them, and we'll have more drama and intrigue than ever before! Those viewers who threaten not to watch? Bluffing! One and all.
I'm watching for entertainment.
Wow Kelly, Finally! Someone who lives in your world!! This must be very exciting for you considering how lonely you must have been in there. Congratulations! I bet this is the only blog out of these hundreds that you plan to give any credence to. How sad, because, she happens to absolutely dead wrong. I really liked you at first, but always showing up late and your “I don’t put my name on anything” bull shit “ like “I am better than every body else” attitude really starting coming through. You did snob Bethany a few years earlier> You have a pattern of doing this, which was proven because you also did it to Lu Ann. Your are a classic narcissist. You do not see beyond your own needs and I have a feeling this penetrates to your children. I do NOT believe that your children come first. I also don’t think you are an evil person, just terribly misguided and delusional. Narcissistic people live in their own world which revolves around them. So it doesn’t and didn’t surprise me when the other women, (who have their own issues), all agreed in unison that you live in “Kelly’s world”. You truly are the center of your own universe i.e. “Kelly’s World.” For instance you are such an attention whore that you must be the center of attention at all time. That is why you ignore women. You do not wish not compete with other women. That is why you snub them, and why you don’t like to be around other women at parties. You crave that circle of men all around YOU, telling you how beautiful you look, and you do not wish to share the spot light with any women who might steel it from you. That is why you leave parties so soon. You make a grand entrance where all the attention is on you, everyone taking pictures of you from the front, from the side, everyone greeting you giving you hugs, so glad to see you, then it’s over. The high is over, you have used them to get what you wanted—center stage all eyes on you, telling you how gorgeous you look--and then you leave because they have nothing else you want. Once the attention is on someone else who arrives, you can’t stand it. You have been exposed Kelly. People like you are dangerous as acquaintances. It would have been better for those other women had not met you. You are obsessed with yourself. Even your Halloween invitations had to be about you. You said that you were ‘just “updating your comp cards” that were supposed to be head shots, but instead, you used that opportunity of the show to let the audience see your body and turned it into a full shoot and used the excuse of making those conceded, narcissistic invitations to a party you didn’t even bother showing up to. Seriously, you need to see someone and get out of denial. You are right, you are a house wife than the other women. All of us have issues, and the women on the show had their fair share, what makes you so different compared to them, is that you are fake. You don’t see phony you are. At least they are honest about their issues when brought to their attention. All of us do things from time to time that we are the last to realize, and when brought to our attention it is sometimes shocking. But if are not narcissistic, and we want to change, most of us won’t deny it. 5 other women, and an entire blog of other people see the same thing. If this many people see it, you need to get a grip and talk to someone. And, no I am not jealous of you either. I wish you luck. Your girls are sweet—truly put them first.
Kelly, To be honest, your motives for going on this show are very self serving. You want it to be all about you. Your fight with Bethenny, which you caused, could have been resolved right from the start if you would have rationally had an adult conversation with Bethenny instead of telling her off and walking off. That is no way to resolve and clear the air. It only creates more conflict. Then later you blamed Bethenny for fighting with you to get more air time! you are the one fighting for air time, not Bethenny. You should have joined the cast to be part of the group and not to try and be the star of the show and exclude the other housewives.
Kelly and Alex were the nicest people on that show. All of the others were angry, bitter, ugly people.
Wow, I didn't know so much people hate Kelly. I loved reading all this comments. I hope she reads them all and learns from it.
