Kelly Killoren Bensimon

Kelly discusses the soap opera turn of Season 4 and Alex's "liability" comment.

on Aug 1, 20110

This reunion was so special, they added another 90 minutes because of all the drama!

What started as an intersection between different women who live in New York City has evolved into the biggest soap opera fest on television. "You can't write this stuff," say most writers in Hollywood who hold reality stars in disdain -- because we literally took bread off their table.

And, the writers have every reason to be mad. Who on earth "outs" or speculates if someone has gone to AA? Is this information that the world needs to know? And does this help whoever is calling the other person out look like a more respectable business woman? And, then there is the speculation of intervention. . .I am definitely not a good enough friend to Ramona to ever to ever suggest an intervention.

But, I have to giggle when we get to the liability issue. I've spent the last three years protecting Alex. Finally, I forewarned Alex that her actions would eventually get her iced out. Alex quite nicely did it herself, by telling us we are all a liability.

As for Sonja and her vulva (as it is technically referred to), I was offended. It's disheartening that at 47, Sonja doesn't have the confidence in her ability to write a book, without sharing her body parts for the camera. Sensationalism isn't always the key -- Lindsay Lohan would like that page from her playbook back. I did grace the March 2010 cover of Playboy, but flashing your "..." on cable TV is a whole different can of worms. (If you're laughing, stop. LOL.)

You were not being bullied, you were just acting a victim to make the others look bad. You put all the blame of your crazy breakdown on the others! Your behaviour of acting like a victim and making others look like bad people is disgusting and embarrassing. You are a grown women, act like one! You attacked bethenny and couldn't handle it when they stuck up for themselves. Jealousy is ugly.

I think Kelly sucks up to Lu Anne..Cannot see why, cos she is really a snake! However, it also looked like for some reason Kelly and Lu Anne are bullies towards Alex....I think they r both very negetive women and very unhappy, bitter women and are envious of Alex! Thay should stop the bullying cos it's getting quite uncomfortable to watch and a shame that grown women act this way..even though they both are very aware that they are being filmed! Stop the bullying its bad and Karma is not nice!

REALLY BRAVO, REALLY?

LOL @ whoever called Kelly the voice of reason. The voice of insanity is all I ever heard from this one.

Kelly named as one of the five nicest people ever? Who else is on this list? Tonya Harding, Joan Crawford, Lady McBeth and Idi Amin?

It's hard to judge a person from watching, how many episodes? Cant get a truly true picture that way. However, what I have seen from you makes me wonder if your playing with a full deck at times and it does sometimes appear that you like to stir the pot and create riffs between the others in the cast. It does also seems that yourself and Luann are well suited to be friends. It appears in my observation of both your behaviors, especially when faced with confrontation, that you become condescending and/or shut the other person(s) down by not allowing them to get a word in edgewise and if that's not working you then run. Passive/aggressive. I've already schooled Luann on this term :)

Good luck in life.

Kelly all I can say is your great and the blondes we lets just say they are nothing like the Brunettes that's why they where so far away (ha ha) Most ppl don't care for the blondes that's why we don't remember their names at best of time. You all might be friends in life sometime but the viewers have negative things to say only cause its what we see, we really don't see the off camera but if my friends treated me like that it would done. Never take crap from friends and never forgive there are a lot of people in this world Kelly and your a great mother from what I have read.

Thank goodness you're off the show. I don't even want to flip through channels and see you for a slight second. I found it deeply DISTURBING to watch you. Scarring like a horror movie. As much as I feel sorry for you, I'm really glad to not know you personally!

Kelly, You try to be nice, but you just don't make any sense especially when you act like you want to give someone advice and talk to them and you will not listen to anything they say telling them to just be quiet. I think you have a hard time engaging in adult conversation. (not that there is much of that going on)

Kelly you are constantly contradicting yourself. A lot of what you say doesn't make sense and you appear to say things just to get attention. Your ego is supersize and I suggest you stop feeding it before it crushes you.

Ms. Killoren-Bensimon, I, in behalf of our circle of friends, would like to let you know that we really, truly LIKE you for who you are, for what you stand for, for raising above detractors and naysayers and most esp for being a fun wonderful mom to your 2 beautiful girls. You handled your self with grace and dignity and it is very commendable. Rest assured that we only wish you the BEST and AWESOME success for life after HW. May you continue to inspire us!!!

I never really understood you. You were so confusing, out-spoken and never really able to participate in the conversations that were taking place. You seemed lost in your own head--just wierd.

Thank you Bravo for icing out Kelly!!!! Andy Cohen ROCKS! The real "crazy weird" one who makes "bad fashion choices"(as she dubbed and bullied Alex)is Kelly. For someone like her to claim Cosmopolitan named her the 5 most nicest celebrities, Kelly must think we all are on her level of intelligence which is of a middle school, clueless, obnoxiously mean girl.

Glad you're gone. I thought the majority of the housewives were horrible to Alex, and she did not deserve it.

Kelly - you are a woman of beauty, fun- loving, peace-making, great style and compassionate. Bravo's reasons for your leaving the show are simply inexplicable to me. You were the salt that the housewives used to coat their Skinny Margarita glass- you know it's still a great drink, but without the salt you just know the drink is missing something. Without Kelli & Jill the show won't be quite right, it too will be missing something. I just can't accept this ... 'com on Bravo!

Kelly, I am sorry to say that I am glad you will not be on the next season. You were mean to some of the ladies at times, and you were constantlly inconsiderate of everyone by being late so often. That is not a good example for your girls. All they learn form that is that their time is more important than anyone's Enjoy your friendship with Luanne...you two can keep being mean to all your new friends. I wish they had removed Luanne, too. Ann

Oh Kelly! I thought you were a little strange at first, but I think you have the sweetest heart of any housewife in any city. Yes, you are a little bit kooky sometimes but that is part of your charm and I hope you always stay that way. You are not a fake mean bitch like most of the others. I sincerely wish you and your lovely daughters all the best. (You really are too good or this show!) god bless!

I honestly cant believe the shit that some of those women have dumped on you...all of which is NOT TRUE!!

I love how you don't perpetuate the hate/jealousy/ugliness that some of the other women create because that just keeps the bad energy going... and how will the world ever get better if we spread hate instead of love.

U R AWESOME DUDE!

Sending you LOVE and LIGHT!!!

I totally agree with willow146! Just because you say to yourself over and over again your a nice person does not mean you are!

There are three components to bullying 1) it needs to result in a hurt, physically, emotionally or sexually 2) it needs to be unfair by number size, social class ability to respond etc and 3rd it needs to be repeated. On this show the only behavior that fits these categories is that against Alex. She comes from a great family, she rarely except in defense of someone else gets involved. When she does you crucify her. She does not have the tools to fight back. The rest of you with your egos, false sense of self do. You were not bullied, just crazy on the trip to St Thomas and the fact that the network removed you from the trip is proof of that. So many kids are bullied in the real sense so please do not pretend you were on this show and please stand up for Alex because she is being bullied although I think she can handle it.She hasreal class

kelly, you are not rude, you are defending yourself. anyone who wants to understand the level of anger that currently exists needs to look at seasons past. Ramona being crazy and just attacking anyone and everyone. Alex suddenly joining an alliance with bethenny and ramona and attacking anyone they did -- in hopes of finally having some friends on the show -- . Thats the history here. Last season Bethenny, Ramona and Alex did gang up on Kelly, who is a sweet girl and really can't defend herself well against this sort of thing. Alex also joined forces with bethenny and ramona when they ganged up on Jill. Ramona, and especially Alex got what was coming to them. At least Ramona, in spite of or maybe because of her nuttiness, adds something to the show. What does Alex add, besides delusions of being a model and a socially desirable person?

You come off very rude; you're incredibly condescending -- most especially to Alex. You interrupt in conversations and don't listen. I've never written to anything like this but felt compelled because I think you're incredibly rude.

kelly, stop being jill's lap dog and be your own person. just because you're friends with her don't mean you need to agree with everything she says. i think you are still upset with ramona, alex and sonja because of the trip you took with them the season before. get over it.
