Being a single parent is hard – just ask The Real Housewives of New York City's Kelly Bensimon.
"Do I regret being divorced? Absolutely," the 43-year-old beauty and mom of two daughters confides to HollywoodLife.com about the demise of her decade-long marriage to famed French photographer Gilles Bensimon. Still, this revelation doesn't mean Kelly's dwelling in the past. "Am I happy in this position that I am today? Yes," she says.
Speaking from her personal experience, the former model continues, "Divorce isn't a good thing; it's not good for either party, it's not good for anyone that's involved – friends, family, children."
Yet, in spite of the heartache and challenges she's overcome since dropping the Mrs. prefix in 2007, divorce hasn't soured Kelly's taste for marriage. Teddy and Sea's mama has been vocal about her desire to remarry soon and have another child, but warns other single women that dating a divorced guy may come with unwanted baggage. "If they talk badly about their ex-wife, that is a no-go -- that means run. Don't even sit in the restaurant. Run as fast as you can."
