Welcome back to The Real Housewives of New York City Season 3. So much has happened over the summer. I had such a great time with my two girls in East Hampton. It is incredible to see how much they grow with sun, laughter, and love.
The first time you see me is when LuAnn, Jill, and I meet at Nichols, which is my favorite Hampton's haunt for lunch. I love the low key atmosphere and the delicious food. The three of us sat down to eat, and I was nervous to film with them. I haven't seen anyone since the Reunion show, or what I call the courtroom (the only lawyer present is the Google alert). The women were all very aggressive with me, and I was clearly bored by the nonsense. I will say anything to get someone off my back. I just talk about anything until they stop berating me with gossip and banter. I unfortunately have the Housewife police on me to tell you what they heard from a best friend's friend they met in high school. Please check out my blog at kellykillorenbensimon.com to see what I am really doing.
During our lunch Jill and LuAnn were filling me in on what had happened over the summer. We spoke of my 'alleged' misdemeanor, which was dismissed. If anyone touches you, call the police. It isn't a joke, and no one needs to go through what I went through. Let the authorities do their job. LuAnn seems to be acclimating well after her situation. Life changes for the good or the bad. Is it my job to judge what she does? No. Can I listen and learn from her experiences? Yes. Jill also has gone through a lot with Bobby and Bethenny. I am grateful to hear of Bobby's recovery. As for Bethenny, her job is to sensationalize anything for media attention. I feel for Jill, because she thought their relationship was real. Real for TV, that was obvious. I came back to the show for one reason. I am not an actor; if I wanted an improvisational class I would go to an amazing acting class, I would not go on a reality TV show. It's tough filming when some women are geared up for "filming their scenes." I am just having fun and enjoying the process. Wish me luck.
PS - Please tweet me @kikilet if you have any questions. It is important to me that you see the real me. I appreciate the criticism.
You said at the end of your blog, "I came back to the show for one reason." What was the reason?? You did not say what it was.
So excited to watch tonight! I am so glad that you are back and that you are someone who stands their ground for what they believe in. Team Kelly!
Enjoyed the first episode tonight; you seemed more relaxed than last season. I look forward to all the scenes with you and Bethenny. You two simply have personalities that don't mix, and sorry to say, but it makes for quite interesting television. Good luck to you with your children and also finding a companion to share life with!
Kelly I love you, Jill, and LuAnn. You three are my favorites and the most real out of this whole show. If you guys are going through a problem you actually show feelings the other three are just crazy. And you should be saying I told you so to everyone because you were the only one that saw the true Bethenny!
Just FYI. Saying that you're really bored when other people are trying to tell you something is really off-putting to that person. Think about it, if everyone said they were bored with your blog and wished you would stop writing it would hurt. Right?
Amazing. Kelly . . . please delete this very overused word from your vocabulary.
When true conversation happens . . . you say you are bored to escape the conversation. You're not bored. You're uncomfortable.
You are so pretty! You have my favorite look - natural and bohemian chic! I do hope we get to know you better this season. I will say at least you are honest and not fake! I would like diet and excercise tips from you!
Kelly, you and LuAnn seem like the biggest actresses of the bunch! I think it's hilarius how you keep saying that you're the only "real" one.
Kelly you are so beautiful. I feel that you are a little detached at times, but it seems that you are open to self improvement. Keep up your positive attitude, pay more attention to detail, and think about what you say before you say it. I think your heart is in the right place. Take care and good luck this season!! :)
You came back for "one" reason...your not an actor? I guess you lost me there. And as far as Bethenny is concerned I really feel you are jealous of her. And with the falling out of jill and bethenny, I think we will see you try to capitalized on that this season.
I am curious to know why you say the court case is dismissed, but you still have to serve community service. If a case is dismissed that means just that. I am also curious to know why you have a court date pending for the same case in June? Is it so the judge can check your progress on your community service for a dismissed case? Why not just be honest about the whole situation? Every one makes mistakes, why not own up to it?
After last season I was really thinking your were quite a train wreck, but I also am intelligent enough to know when there has been handy editing, so I was very glad to see you being authentic with the ladies at lunch.
I know that you have had your moments, but I do think that you are a great addition to the cast.
I was very disheartened to see the "bitchery" of the women in the 1st episode...It almost got to the point where I was like ENOUGH!
Good lord...y'all have so much and does it really matter? Wow! I just HOPE that it gets better, because women NOT supporting other women and being snarky, ugly and just plain immature is NOT good tv...
Good luck this season!!
I really tried to like you I really did - but the obsession with Bethenny is going to get tired really quick. Just let it go and live your life.
Welcome back Kelly! I certainly hope this season isn't another season of you bad-mouthing Bethenny (as it's already started that way). It seems rather ironic that in most of your interviews/blogs you speak of Bethenny and how she is only looking for "press," when that seems to be the exact thing you have been doing. Please stop!
You appear to be a nice person with a good heart. I think most of the viewers will really come to like you if you quit focusing on Bethenny and what she is doing and live your life. Good luck!
You are so transparent. What you are trying to do is salvage your reputation after last season. Too late. Not to mention you really don't seem bright enough to be able to pull it off and I am positive you will prove that before the season ends.
Your blog is titled, Not My Job to Judge, but then you take a shot at Bethenny. Dont you think that is a bit hypocritical? Although if the first season you were on taught us anything, it is that being a hypocrite is your game.
Maybe i'm not the only one that gets your analogues but right on girl. You're a great person and I appreciate you because you go with the flow of things and never intentionally get mixed up in other people's drama.
Kelly, Try to stay calm...You looked great in the first episode, both physically and emotionally. Let the other housewives get in to battles because they look like spoiled children. I used to like Bethenny but I did start seeing through her in season 2 and she was just ridiculous in the first episode of season 3. Yes, she has a nice looking boyfriend, but I don't know how he can stand her non-stop chatter---that would be hard to deal with everyday. Keep trying to rise above the other housewives and you will continue to look like a winner.
I want to say ,you seem like the only one who doesn't have an agenda when you meet with these people, they are always making you out to be ,not really with reality, well if being like them makes you not there than hope you continue being missing ,they are a hard bunch of women to watch let alone sit with!!!!
Though you make be more successful at attempting to reinvent yourself than Ramona, I still see through you.
They might have 'dismissed' charges, but it was contingent on you performing community service. Don't try to make it sounds like you were completely exonerated and chose to work with a charity out of the goodness of your heart.
Frankly, you scare me and I feel sorry for any man- or woman- who gets into an argument with you. You might have had a rough childhood being thrown into the fashion world, but you're responsible for who you are now. The whole world sees through your B.S.
What is the "one reason" you came back to the show? I missed it. Was it somewhere between whining about the "Housewife police" (you appreciate criticism?) and "having fun and enjoying the process?" Can you go 3 paragraphs w/o contradicting yourself?
You weren't "clearly bored," you were clearly called out on your inability to answer a direct question or give a coherent answer.
You didn't graduate (earn a degree of any kind) from Columbia University. Apparently, you're on the show to sensationalize yourself.
Here's a literary exercise for you - blog the entire season w/o using the word "amazing."
Kelly - happy to hear charges against you were dismissed. Wondering why you did community service for, yes, a GREAT cause?
You seem to be trying to imply that you were found not guilty by saying your charges were dismissed. In fact, you agreed to two days of community service to have the charges wiped off.
I think you are so out there. There really is something wrong with you. Please get help. No one reacts the way you do.
I get you, but it seems that some of the NY housewives do not. They are slow in understanding you, and have probably lived rather sheltered lives. You seem very intelligent, as well as beautiful. Just be yourself. Do not worry about any negative comments, as we all have our good and bad points. You seem to enjoy your life, and I do not worry that when the time is right you will find your Mr. Right!
Kelly, I find it extremely amusing that the title of your blog is 'Not My Job to Judge', when that is precisely what you do in the last paragraph. Learn to take responsibility for your words.
I was hoping you would not return after last year. You were not shown in the best light. You were right about Bethany. She seemed to have used Jill for a free place to stay in the Hamptons and access to rich or famous people. I noticed how she constantly "practiced one liners" on people all last season. Alex was the only one to call her on it, you just refused to deal with her. With some of the stuff you come up with, I can tell you are not acting, just being yourself.
I don't understand why you had to do community service at the battered women's shelter if you were innocent and the charges were dismissed. It doesn't make sense to have to serve a sentence if there was no crime. You don't do the time if you don't do the crime, or did I miss something?
I am SO glad you're back Kelly.You are a gorgeous disaster! That sucked when everyone said you should not be asked back @ last seasons' reunion show-I'm sure at different times you all could have wanted to kick off any one of the rest of the cast-I vote to kick off Mario.
Kelly, this is the first time that I feel we saw a good side of you. You were acting more mature, and it's great to see that side of you. However, as a writer, you need to work on your analogies and being articulate. For someone who writes for their job, you are very incoherent.
I can see that we saw the real you last year, I am not interested in seeing your story progress and will fast forward through scenes you are in. This blog is really snarky. You don't judge....YEAH RIGHT!
Nice to see you back on the show. You, Jill and Countess are my favorites, so I'm happy to see that, so far, you ladies are getting along. I have to agree with the blogger who said that you were first to see true Bethenny. As a person who says that she always is open and tells like it is, she did pretty good job at pretending to be a friend to Jill- talking about a low blow... "get a hobby". I guess she does not need Jill anymore to get air time.
I don't mean this in a negative way: I think you might be a little too laid back for these women to understand.
Your blog doesn't make any sense. "friend of a friend"?? Why would you be sentenced to work community service hours if you were acquitted?? You are right on one count- you double talk to confuse the issue at hand. We see you do it all the time on this show. It was especially evident at the reunion show and in your interaction with Bethenny. You are delighting in the demise of Jill and Bethenny's friendship and are keeping the pot stirred.
Kelly, First I would like to say that if the roles were reversed and you had someone put their hands on you I don't think you would want the other person writing disparaging comments about you. Also what if it were your daughters? Would you want them to not report anything because they were physically able to walk to the police station? Think about what you write and what you are representing as someone who has "allegedly" perpetuated violence. You should be able to convey your thoughts without putting your hands on someone else violently.
And lastly maybe you should prepare for some of your "scenes" so that you don't look like an incoherent air head model.
You wrote that you came back for another season for a reason... but I'm not sure that you told us what that reason was... or is the reason because you are not an actor?? Sorry, I get confused reading your blogs.
It appears to me that unless you are the one making a statement, having an event, or, simply put, it isn't all about you, you really don't have anything productive to add. You really are quite unlikable.
Kelly. I really think you are a nice person deep down. I just don't think this show is something you should be doing. You come off as someone who thinks she is above the show and everyone in it. From others that I have spoken with about you, we all seem to agree you are the type of person that would look down your nose at anyone who was wearing something that cost less than a house payment. My advice, tone it down, have something nice to say about us little people who dont have front row seats at a fashion show. Lay off others that don't worship your growing list of celeb friends. Name dropping is ugly. Sorry.
Do you really think that 'saying anything' to get someone off your back is being 'REAL'? You claim to be real, but to me, you are the person most trying to be someone she's not. I think you need to think through what you say before you say it. You contradict yourself(and don't make any sense) ALL THE TIME! And on top of it all, you are soo rude! Respect people and maybe you'll get some respect back.
You said the charges were "dismissed" but then later in the conversation you said you had to do community service for domestic abuse???
without a doubt full of yourself-why are you on the show if your bored of people? obviously you want the benifits of being on a reality show since your going thru the motions with "friends"
Your issue with Bethany is very immature and jealous like, stop showing people how petty you can be and try to be civil-hopefully the real you has some good characteristics in there somewhere. Why don't you try and let those come to light sometime?
I agree with Heather01,
If you're so much better than the other Housewives, then stop with the back-door insults.
"The women were all very aggressive with me, and I was clearly bored by the nonsense. I will say anything to get someone off my back. I just talk about anything until they stop berating me with gossip and banter. I unfortunately have the Housewife police on me to tell you what they heard from a best friend's friend they met in high school."
What does this even mean? Weren't you a journalism student? Write with a clear point and message and stop trying to make yourself look better by MAKING YOURSELF LOOK BETTER. Just BE BETTER.
Being from the world of law enforcement I would like to know how you got your case as you said dismissed and you had to do community service. Was it dismissed after you met all conditions. Folks don't do community service on dismissed cases.
Hmmm. So Bethanny is all about self-promotion. What do you call it when someone runs slowly through traffic in Manhattan? Sounds like the pot calling the kettle black. It's obvious you didn't get any education since last season. Still the same stupid, stupid woman.
Kelly your amazing! I don't even think you intentionally mean to be funny with some of the things that come out of your mouth. The thing I really like about you and Jill too is that you are REAL!
