Kelly Bensimon Offers Advice to RHONY New Additions

Her guidance? "Make as many mistakes as possible."

By Lauren Metz

Looking for bad blood? Then keep on moving. "I'm not angry. I had a great opportunity. I mean, three years! Three years I'm on television," Kelly Bensimon tells People magazine of her departure from The Real Housewives of New York City. "The show started off in one way and it needs to take a different direction because that's the nature of the TV beast. I'm excited to watch it. It's going to be great," she predicts – even if her penchant for jelly beans won't be included this time around.

As for the show's incoming female freshmen, Kelly comments, "I don't know them, but I'm sure they're going to be very interesting, lovely women." Her advice to the newbies is fairly simple: "Make as many mistakes as possible. Do anything that you can do that you can learn from your mistakes. Because if you don't learn from your mistakes then you're what? Boring!"
