Kelly Killoren Bensimon

This week Kelly shares her thoughts on the episode in the form of a poem.

on May 12, 20110

My Ode to Lady Morgan

Thank you Lady Morgan for the Masquerade,

Although, this party would have been more interesting in the last decade

Even Jill thought it was worse than the Marriage Equality parade

Be sure to notice Lady Morgan's dress was not homemade

Thank you Chris March for the wig upgrade

Perhaps Sonja could have dressed as a bar maid,

Perhaps then I'd have lemonade for my Kellade

For the record, costumes don't help if you are looking to get laid

I may as well have been wearing a lampshade

Sonja's boyfriend is clearly handy with a razorblade

There goes Ramona looking to drop a grenade

Was it me or did the bartender appear a little afraid?

And, is it that obvious that her "staff" is underpaid?

Hopefully the bruise will fade

Any event after this will be a downgrade

Lady Morgan, please, when's the next Masquerade?

Read on for more of Kelly’s thoughts on the episode. . .

Kell, So sorry to hear about your abuse history. I hope your heart heals quickly. I totally understand not wanting to be around people that are bad for your head. Do what's good for you.

"A TSUNAMI DESTROYING EVERYTHING IN SIGHT..." THAT REMARK BEING LINKED WITH BETHENNY'S SUCCESS WAS HYSTERICAL! TRUE TOO! SAD....

You have found your true calling - poetry. You could be more successful than Bethanny if you only had Bravo to promote your talent. Oh wait - you do. Good luck.

Kelly, that poem was cute. You are my second favorite after LuAnn but I will always like you for the sweet person you are. So never listen to haters, just think that there are a lot of stupid people out there! LOL!

I just had to laugh at the comment: "you are a ray of sunshine". Yea right, until someone mentions Bethenny's name and then you become a tsunami destroying everything in sight. Get over it. Bethenny is up here and you are down there. She is a successful business woman with a loving husband and a beautiful baby. You are as green as the witch in the Wizard of Oz.

Kelly,

That poem was awful... I mean we are on the Planet Earth - WELCOME.

When you wouldn't give Bethenny her due on WWHL that showed your insecurity so clearly... don't you realize that spoke VOLUMES? You can fool yourself into thinking something else but this is the way it is - I never heard of you before the Real Housewives of NY but I HAD heard of Chef Bethenny! How gracious it would have been of you to say "I wish her well in all of her endeavors" - instead your inner CAT came out.

I see such a positive change in you this season. You are certainly healthier and I applaud whatever steps you took to get better. Stay away from the ignorant people who will not take the time to understand something that can happen to anyone (Ramona). The smartest people I know (you) are the ones that step up to the plate and work at getting better. The change this season is amazing and it really shows. Kudos to you!!

Why did you go and tell Sonja what Cynthia had told you in good faith and from a good heart. She was trying to look out for YOUR kids. That was very unkind and indiscreet of you. You should have handled it better. Sorry hon... luv ya but that was YOUR BAD.

Congrats on keeping it civil when Andy asked you the question about Bethenny's success. Everyone of the Housewives has been given an opportunity to use the show as a platform.

You're the reason we watch.

Funny poem, Kelly. I think you are great! These women have lost all integrity. It is refreshing to see that you are balanced, happy and productive.

I can't believe you can't even admit when someone is successful, even if you don't like them. Bethanny has worked hard and earned her success. You say all the time that Bravo is your platform. Do you credit ONLY Bravo for your success? I highly doubt it. You should give credit where credit is due.

Right Sherie!!!

And when Kelly said that she was up here and Bethany was down there, she also stated that while Bethany was busy just talking, she was busy actually doing & that she needed to "realize the situation"-totally cracks me up!!!

Kelly, Stay true to yourself. Do not spend time with people who bring you down. You are with a bunch of tough, egomaniacs - don't take any of them seriously. You decided to be on this show so start acting. Have tough skin and know to protect yourself. I also think you should be real though, about how tough it was for you to be surrounded by such combative women. Just be real and protect yourself. God Bless You. PS Cindy seems like a good egg.

Let's get something straight... Bravo may have given Bethenny exposure, but all of her success is because of her hard work and business savvy. It is obvious that you are either jealous or sick of hearing about her from the comment you made. Do you really dislike her that much that you have to resort to catty remarks?

Poem is a crackup! A few of us DO get your humor, Kelly. The funniest thing about it? Calling Sonja a "lady". Too funny!!

I like you this season, I would rather live in Kellyland then in Egoland where the rest of the ladies (I use the term loosely) live! You, Cindy and Jill are the only ones that I don't want to slap. Stay true to yourself!!!

I assume you and Sonja are no longer friends; I don't know why else you would say such nasty things about her party. It might not have been A+ in your book, but you looked great and looked like you were having fun. What's the problem?

And giving Bravo the credit for Bethanny's success is a serious low blow. I'd hope you would have been more mature than that.

BTW, "For the record, costumes don't help if you are looking to get laid " I'm sorry... but damn straight they do :-)

LOVED your little poem. Too cute! LOVE you this season, Kelly. You, too, are too cute!

YOU ARE A RAY OF POSITIVE SUNSHINE...Keep it going girl!!!! By the way you were right about Bethany...no disrespect meant at all here. Without Bravo she would have had a hard time getting her name out there. She used the show to her advantage and there is nothing wrong with that. You are an amazing woman and a great role model.

Kelly, You are a sweet and genuine person. Why are you mixed up with Cindy and Jill? They are not looking out for you, they only look out for themselves. Keep an open mind to the other ladies, if you notice, they are the ones who don't snark about one another behind each other's backs. You deserve a life filled with joy and happiness for you and your beautiful girls. You may have had your problems last year, but you are definately trying to stay out of the drama pool this year- atleast the shallow end if you must join in.

You are awesome! I would love to join you in Kellyland, it seems to be the most sane place to be. I never thought I would say it, but you, Cindy and Jill are becoming my favorite NY Housewives.

Kelly, like I always say..."you are beautiful". Andy's poll last night was mean. Ramona is the one that needs therapy. Please continue not to put up with her BS. She is really turning "ugly". Stick with LuAnn!

Kelly you are a little nuts at times but I LOVE your apartment and your decorating sense. I think you have a real future in interior design.

I think this was my favorite blog of all the housewives ever! The poem was whimsical, fun, and just perfect. I must admit. I must be drinking some of the Kellade since I am becoming more of a fan all the time. Thanks for the laugh this week!

I've always thought you to be an unbelievably beautiful woman.

I have also always thought that you handle conflict poorly, you contradict yourself regularly, and you exhibit the mannerisms and vernacular of a teenager. I found it entertaining and entirely appropriate that "like" was the drinking buzzword on WWHL last night. Given all of this, it continues to remain a mystery to me that you appear to be an excellent mother. Nevertheless, your children are your legacy and, from that perspective, it would seem that you leave a wonderful stamp on the world.

I began to like you this season. I think I understood that you want to be happy, enjoy life, and continue to view it through rose-colored glasses. I found it admirable that you seemed to want to acknowledge and grow from your mistakes. I still thought that it was important to be able to, when appropriate, view life realistically, and to actually take responsibility for your actions as opposed to just giving that lip service... But I was genuinely beginning to appreciate and to like you.

*Sigh* And then, there was last night on WWHL. When one of the callers asked you the question about Bethenny's success, you gave THE MOST RIDICULOUS response. Rather than acknowledge the hard work that brought Bethenny to her current state of success, you credited Bravo. Yes, Bravo gave Bethenny a platform, but it was SHE who was smart enough, savvy enough, confident enough, aggressive enough to utilize it. SHE created her brand, her fans, her recognition. SHE put in the work. Not an ex-husband whose name she keeps, Ms. Killoren BENSIMON. BETHENNY FRANKEL is responsible for her reported $100M-plus empire, not Bravo. Perhaps you're incapable of understanding any of that, or perhaps you're jealous of all that SHE has accomplished. Whatever the case, I found your response to be inappropriate and utterly classless. A few days ago on WWHL, a caller asked Bethenny if she felt vindicated because her net worth is now a multiple of yours. Bethenny's response was not mean or a dig. She responded with class. You didn't. As you pointed out last night, you're 43 years old ~ it's unfortunate that you've not developed the maturity to objectively acknowledge someone else's accomplishment.

Good luck to you.

~ Michelle

Why so much hate towards Bethenny? Bethenny has been and will be more successful than ANY housewife on ANY Real Housewife show....and Kelly, if you were truly a classy lady you would have given her the respect she deserves. She is awesome and I respect her for taking herself out of the Real Housewife DRAMA...she would not have been able to truly succeed with such hatred surrounding her. And, although Bravo may have made her a little more known...SHE is the one who gets FULL credit for her hard work in making her life a success. I have watched Bethenny before Real Housewives...on a few other shows....I have never heard of anyone else on any of the Housewives shows.

I THOUGHT YOU LOOKED GREAT AT THAT PARTY! LOVED THE FACE GLITTER! IT IS TRUE WHAT OTHER PEOPLE ARE SAYING...YOU DO SEEM HEALTHIER AND HAPPY THIS SEASON.

Kelly, Nothing to say about you on the show this wk. but......... it was not necessary for you to be so snide on Watch What Happens about Bethenny. You have always downplayed her skills whether it be as a chef or other things. Jealousy is not a pretty color on you. Give Bethenny her due, she has done very well both for herself and for Bravo. She s a savvy business woman and it would behoove you to be more gracious . Wish her well and live your life as well.

I love how you simply shut Ramona down at Cindys B'Day party. Thanks for taking the high road. Seems she was targeting everyone there for a confrontation and or argument. Geesh !!! Love watching you on the show. Your comments & attitude at times are too funny.
