Playboy magazine wanted to interview and photograph me. In addition to amazing pictures, Playboy is known for their articles. Hugh Hefner is a pioneer in the magazine world. He had a brilliant idea, why not add provocative images and evocative text? I was not only flattered to be photographed for Playboy, but I was even more flattered to have an article written, which sometimes ensures that the story will run and may be the feature. I met the writer at the restaurant Cafe Select and was shocked at how handsome he was. I barely gave him any information because I was so charmed by him, and honestly more interested in him than in the questions he was asking me. We never went on a date because I don't like to mix business and pleasure, and I make a concerted effort to keep my personal life personal. One may argue, then why I am on a reality show? This show is not about my life, it's about different women in New York and how their lives intersect. One day you may see my real life. You would be shocked at how much it mirrors your own.
Dating for me has always been really hard. I am incredibly shy and honestly insecure. I have a lot of male friends, but I had also been in a relationship since my mid twenties through my thirties, so I am not very proficient in the world of dating, and I am definitely not dating savvy. I am real, I don't play any games, and therefore I get my feelings hurt a lot. Regardless, I would rather not be bulletproof and welcome every moment. I have the worst radar, or so my friends tell me. I admire smart men who act like men. I am looking for someone like my father who is well educated, well mannered, and curious. I don't need a playmate. I would like him to do well, and I'd like him to let me do well, so we can do "us" well. I have two beautiful girls who deserve an amazing man in their life. I am looking for someone who wants to share and celebrate the life I have worked so hard to build. I want Chapter 2 with family and love. Everyone deserves to be loved.
Ally's photo shoot for Seventeen Magazine was so much fun. I was so flattered that Jill invited me to come and watch Ally model. It was so sweet to see Jill interact with Ally. Jill is an amazing mother and she is so excited for Ally. I was excited for Ally! The pictures looked great, and Ally was proud. Job well done.
Kelly, why are you breaking up w this reporter cutie before you even go out with him? People are brought together in strnge ways all the time. Go out with him!!!
I have to say, I was disgusted that Jill sent an email to Kelly more or less threatening her due to Kelly forging a "friendship" with Bethenny! Jill calls Bethenny an angry person, but she is the one that refuses to make a mends with Bethenny and then threatens fellow cast mates for getting along with her! Talk about an angry person, Jill needs to look in the mirror.
Kelly for the first time ever I have hope for you. It looks like you are not going to stoop to Jill's level and return to 7th grade with her.
Kelly, I have to tell you that I really didn;t like you..I mean, I really didn't like you. Now, well you are changing my mind. You are really not what I thought. You seem to be the one, other than Alex, that doesn't want to just sit around putting people down. You just want to do your own thing..You are great with your girls. You seem like you would be a true friend, but don't take up of Jill against Bethenny, I understand what you are saying, but don't go there for Jill. She isn't your friend, she is using you to get people against Bethenny..Don't let her do that to you...Anyway, I just wanted to say, that you do seem like a really nice person, and keep it up.you will be changing alot of peoples thoughts of you...
The funny thing is that I really didn't like you last season but this season you have become one of my favorites. You are a much better person than was portrayed last season and I commend you for your class. I especially love the fact that you're from the midwest. I think they underestimate us sometimes :)
I was watching tonights show n I come from like a little po-dunk town way north from you guys. And I'm not very fashion foward even though I like all the house wives shows and what not to wear, I had NO clue who your ex-husband was. So I googled him thinking he would be this like rediculiously drop dead gorgous buff young thing but you all look younger than what you are (compliment). Anyways the article under the picture talked about the playboy spread and what the two of you are doing now and it said that you are "acting" on the REAL housewives of new york. Correct me if I'm wrong but this is a reality show not a bunch of staged drama right? I was just wondering its not a personal attack or anything. I do however wish you the best of luck on your quest for the perfect man for you and your girls if you haven't already found him.
Kelly, the e mail Jill sent you is EXACTLY what my daughters classmates (the FEMALE ones) in the 4th grade do. You can't be friends with so and so because we had a fight and I don't like her. Its amusing to watch you tolerate those chicks every week! And I find it hilarious what a nervous wreck Bethany becomes around you. She is COMPLETELY intimidated by you!!
This episode shows that cream rises to the top and you are definitely the cream of the show. It is so nice to see someone who tries to keep a positive realationship with all the housewives. Unfortunately, your attitude has been lost on Bethany. Your perspective on the crazy situations that have come up this season have been spot on. Good luck with finding an amazing man to share your life with.
I think you need to watch your own show because you are terribly misguided. I hope in life that you learn how to recognize when you are being used. It is very clear that you focused too much on Bethenny because you seem to have missed everyhting Jill said about you.
Sorry, Kelly...Jill already did you wrong. She is showing you that you can only be her friend and if you are civil to Bethany, you will be interrogated by Jill until he is satisfied you have given everything up that happened during your time with Bethany. It is so junior high-like. Her e mail should not only have disappointed you, it should have scared you. If you screw up with Jill, and trust me, you won't know when you do so as it could be something as innocuous as you didn't call to wish her "Happy Third Thursday" and forgot to bring a gift. She will be "hurt" because you were not a true friend because you forgot and were unfriendly and didn't "care". Don't you see that?
Kelly, I do like you but please beware of friends like Jill. That e-mail should have been a clearly RED flag.
kelly.i am sorry jill sent you that email.you and alex always stay true and try not to take sides.i know ramona went and blabed about you and bethenny.watch your back kelly.ramona doged you last week and now.she is mean.you were not being any thing other than normal,which i can say none of the other house wives are being.bevy!
Kelly......hang in there and don't take Bethany so seriously. She's a performer.....can't help it......it's in her blood. It wouldn't surprise me if she were the daughter of Robin Williams and Joan Rivers......ideas bounce around her head in rapid fire like Robin and then the snarky side is like Joan's. Put them together and.....YOWZA! I like you and I like her......you both will be fine. I would stay clear of the redhead....... be careful of that one.
I agree, stay out of it if you can. It looks like Jill wants answers and wants them now. Yikes! I don't blame you for feeling disappointed. I'm disappointed myself with everything that went on in this episode. Jill is on a war path and is ready to shoot anyone who is not on her side. Not a pretty picture. Anyhow stay nuetral you're doing great so far!
I saw some tv interviews with you, Jill and LuAnn that had been done after this season I'm glad to see you and Jill worked things out. You three all have honest, true class and professionalism. Please stay just as you are a great mom, a beautiful women and a wonderful friend.
Kelly, If I had a nickel for every time you flipped your hair, I would be rich. Watch the clips then comment. You are a flirt, and the man just responded to your advances. You always talk about being a good example (watch the old clips) so contradicting...stick to those men, the smart ones will really trick you.
Honey, you have to pick a story and stick with it, you are either calling truce with Bethenny or you are not.
It seems you still have lot of pent up anger against Bethenny, and you are still saying cruel things about her. Don't be fake, you don't have to pretend to be friends with her if you don't want to
How can you truely move on if you can forgive or forget. That's not really creating a truce or making a mends. I think that you probably should have let the comment go because it was last season and old news. I'm not sure by you bringing it up if you cleared it up. It looks like it only made matters worse.
I love your approach that life is too short but follow your own advice and truly move on which means starting over.
For the first time since you joined the cast, you had a real moment of insight when you recognized Jill's email for its intended purpose. Do yourself a favor - stay out of the "mean girls" club.
Kelly, I respect that you are the only person who is attempting to make amends with Bethany. She is a great person and very real. I do have one thing to mention, please don't be so flirtatous with all the guys. Just be yourself and why all the fur? It takes away from you.
kelli I will be the first to admit that I have taken some time to get to "get" you. and it is rather odd that we, the audience see so many angles of your relationships that you do not see. really strange. I think if you magnify the tone of your email from Jill, like times a million, you might be able to get a glimpse into he under workings of the decline of Jill and Bethany. My heart broke watching Bethany make an honest effort to at least clear the air, while Jill snickered and rolled her eyes. THERE is your drama queen. Congrats on calling it what it was, nonsense and I applaud your stance on the issue.
Kelly, It was very rude for Jill to send you that e-mail. I applaud your efforts to befriend everyone this season. Best of luck with dating.
I just think Bethenny was surprised when the issue of last season was brought up again. The last episode showed you two moving on from the oh so very long and now boring topic of this issue. So this time, do what you have now said for the seond time and let it go for good. The email you read on the show tonight from Jill is just the tip of what is to come. Jill is controlling, and her relationships are all about her. Anyone can see that Jill, for appearances sake, comes across as if she really cares, but it is truly all about her in the end. Watch your back.
Kelly, If you were trying to clean up your image from last year, you were doing pretty good until your blog contradicts what we saw on camera. You are very confusing, you did it to yourself last year by thinking your time was more valuable than others and making stupid statements, so don't blame Bethanny.
Dear Kelly, You have your hands full. I love to watch the Bravo shows about reality housewives. You stood out today. I like your grace, poise and take or leave it attitude. I have been watching this show way to much. But I like your attidute. LuAnn and you should go on a National Campaign tour about how people should treat each other. Jill can give advice as well. I did see her on Chelsea Lately. But I am not sure if it was for the right reasons that I get from the Bravo 'Housewives show'. Patience, tolerence and classy behavior is what I like to see rise above the pettiness. My hope is that PEOPLE will see that people can be classy in any industry, religon, finincial place that they are in. From what I saw tonight, ya'll have been an inspiration in the cruelest part of the US. Keep it up!PLEASE! MeC
Kelly ! let me just say that you have style grace and are very classy :-) You keep it real 24/7. You deserve nothing but the best and you have such a nice heart !!!
~ Team Kelly ~
Almost forgot.....one more thing. You are so cute when you get around good looking guys. One would think you had never been married before or even dated. I get a kick out of the way you blush and smile and seem so surprised that a cute guy would be interested in you......very sweet, very refreshing.
Kelly, How many times can you bury the same hatchet. We get it, Bethenny hurt your feelings. We got it the first time you said it. You're more likeable this year. I have one bit of advice: LET IT GO!!
Kelly I think if you hang out with Jill long enough - you will see the side of her that has caused the problem that she and Bethany now have. I think you should watch your back girl.
To Jill, you are just another name she can drop and say "hey, Kelly is my friend"
Kelly, I have really enjoyed watching you this season. Congrats on your Playboy article. -- I hope you and Bethenny can get past your differences and move on. You are both a lot of fun to watch on the show, even when you get along. I love watching you with your girls. You can tell they adore you and you really seem to be a very good mom.-- I am so glad you exposed the Jill e-mail. That just says it all. I wish you well, you seem overdue for some goodness in your life. You are doing well to stay out of the riff between Bethenny & Jill. I am rooting for you to rise above the nonsense. Women!! Why are we always tearing each other down?? It just doesn't make sense.
Kelly, I feel so bad for that reporter. If your not going to accept a date from a guy than don't flirt with him so unmercifully. You could see he was totally reading you to ask you out and it almost seemed like a little game for you to get him to do that just so you could later turn him down. Ouch! Now that's mean.
You're a very good writer Kelly. You might be a little nervous on the show because you give a totally different impression than in writing. Stay true to yourself and don't get dragged into the mess, you're too good for it.
Even though I don't agree with your comments about Bethenny, I think this is one of the best blogs that I have seen of yours and only one typo.
Keep it at truce. Stop the digs in your blogs if you really want to be "above" it all.
I have to say I havn't been your biggest fan but this episode showed a new side to you. I think it is big of you that you stay out of the Jill and Bethenny fued. Neither of them should put you in the middle of it. I also loved how you seemed a little nervous while flirting! You are a model and so pretty I never thought you would be shy around guys. I think it explains why you come across weird to some people. I think you are truley shy and nervous and we all trip up when we feel like that. Sorry if this sounds like a backhanded compliment! I truly am trying to make the point that you are starting to open up this seanson and its helping!
I like you because you're so much like me in your demeanor. I'm the one who always tries to stay away from the bickering and backstabbing too. Nevertheless, I still sometimes lose my cool when I have too many people continually picking me apart. I commend you for trying to make amends with Bethany. I watched her make snarky remarks behind your back during Season 2 of the show. Ramona isn't much better than Bethany. I know you have to deal with them because of the show but just remember that some of us really like you. Peace.
omg...you seem totally different in your blog than on tv! I'm sorry...but this is the first time I've checked out your blog & you seem totally cool and not the spacey girl you appear to be :) You're post was totally on! Bethenny does need to grow up a little and look in the mirror. You are a sweetheart! Peace!
Best thing to do Kelly next time someone plays the victim...excuse yourself and leave the scene for a couple moments and then come back. Instead of re-hasing or being put in the middle of something; excuse yourself. :)
Kelly I have always thought you were an airhead but this season you seem to be coming in for a landing somewhat, and kudos to you for making peace with Bethenney but you need to finally learn how to cope with Ramona, because she is who she is and you should take it with a grain of salt. You say you are a free spirit and so is Ramona in her own way so just accept who she is and dont take it so personal. As for Jills e-mail, please tell her to grow up! that was the most childish thing I have seen in a long time. She really does need get a hobby. Where is Gloria when Jill is acting this way?? Jill needs an intervention.
I like you.You are funny and crazy and your quirks are cute. But ignore little faux pas that those other girls did and act like the coolest cucumber, never react to the actions and comments of those other girls you deem silly and you will be the most attractive of them all.
Your post contained a rather strange comment in that one day we will see your real life and it will mirror much like the viewers. What? You're on a REALITY show. You're suppose to be living your real life. That's the whole premise behind a reality show. It's to show the real women who really live, work, and love in NYC. If I wanted a performance, I would watch a soap opera!
By the way, I understood what you meant when you said, "You're down here, and I'm up here" comment. The bottom line is that you didn't communicate it very well and you appeared to me to have a score to settle when you arrived at the pub/bar/cafe. I think it was the delivery that upset people. It's forgotten so the best thing to do is stop bringing it up.
Kelly I think you are smart to stay out of the cat fight and not have Jill dictate who you can be friends with. What Jill is doing only shows you that she is the problem and stirring up the fire with the help of LuAnn. We definitely disagree about Bethanny. I think she is a straight shooter and sometimes she can say things to hurt others but you always know where you stand with her. Although she does not have the finesse as you when it comes to not saying anything at all if its not nice she is definitely real. I don't think she likes drama I think she just does not hold anything back. That is why we are created differently and believe opposites do attract and if given the chance I think you and Bethanny would be best of friends. You both could learn alot from each other
Kelly I must say I was quite impressed with your response to Jill's email. It is their fight, I personally think Jill is a very small person for her actions.
Kelly, Jill didn't 'threaten you' in her email. She advised you to be careful with Bethany, which is probably good advice. I'm sure it does hurt Jill a bit to know that Bethany seems to be able to have face to face meetings with everybody but her, and it does seem as if Bethany is the one who is making the bigger deal of their falling out.
YOU just got a taste of jill she's controlling the email said it all its not her buisness if your polite to bethenny she'll throw you away and refuse to forgive you as soon as you do something she doesn't like jill is upset about bethenny spin off show that's the real rage in her she wants it .watch her kelly a tiger don't change stripes to help someone is a unselfish act not with tie's of control and worship .
Kelly kudos to you for being bigger than the rest of them. Jill acts like she's in 7th grade with her email to you. She sounds like a bratty little kid. Wanting you to take sides is crazy and thats what Jill and LuAnn want all of you to do. Keep staying true to who you are.
Dear Kelly, I watched the show last night, and was happy to see that you And Bethenny can be together, have some friction and then work it out! As far as Jill & Luann go, they are being the "mean girls" this year, and I for one don't like it! I saw the e-mail Jill sent to you, and fear that it's just the beginning with her! Her & her speaker phone calls with Luann are childish and immature! Watch your back with her.
