Welcome to Kelly's Crib

If you've missed your favorite "Scary Island" survivor, you're in luck. Kelly Killoren Bensimon is headed back to a TV near you soon (you can find more details below.) In the meantime, The Real Housewives of New York City alum is sharing some major life updates. The mother of two recently filled her followers in on what her daughters have been up to, and how her real-estate career is going. 

Kelly Bensimon's daughters are moving — and writing

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of New York City on Peacock and catch up on the Bravo app

In an Instagram Story from June 6, Kelly appeared dressed down in a casual hoodie. That's because she was in the midst of helping her 22-year-old daughter, Teddy Bensimon, pack up for a big move. 

"It is time for Teddy to move!" she announced, showing Teddy as she emptied out some drawers. The real-estate broker added: "I'm on my way to show the incredible building 213 Park Avenue South — so unbelievable. I'm on my way to show that, and then we're going to move Teddy into her new apartment. I don't know if this apartment's gonna fit all this stuff! I don't know how it's going to work."

Kelly's daughters aren't just moving. They're also writing! In an April 22 Instagram post, Kelly let on that one of her two girls is an author. She shared a photo of her bikini-clad self standing in some ocean waves.

"Happy Earth Day to our beloved oceans!" she wrote. "This year, I dedicate it to them with extra love (as my daughter is working on a new book at [Assouline] called ‘Oceans.')" In addition to Teddy, Kelly has an older daughter named Sea Louise

As Kelly reveals in vintage the clip above, she also wrote a book for Assouline. Kelly's tome wasn't about oceans — but it had a corresponding theme. "400 pages, all about the bikini," she says proudly. 

Kelly has international real-estate clients

Later, Kelly changed into a sleek work dress. As she headed to a showing, she shared an update with her followers.

"I have this amazing client that is coming in from Asia, and I'm very excited to show them the building," the broker said, referencing the Park Avenue property once again. "It's such a cool building."

Kelly also dished on her work style. "Im wearing my black dress because I have to dress for my clients. Sometimes I'm casual. I don't wear sneakers, but sometimes I'm wearing jeans and a blazer."

Kelly added "broker" to her resume — which also includes model, author, equestrian, and designer — back in 2018. After her first open house, she was hooked. "I’m made for this job," she tweeted.

She wasn't lying. This March, Page Six reported that Kelly had sold $50 million worth of real estate since January 1. "That’s a lot of very expensive square footage for anyone, especially a newcomer to the business, and the quarter isn’t even over,” an anonymous source told the publication. “She’s been killing it.”

Kelly is headed on The Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip

In other news, the real-estate ace has some packing of her own to do. The Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip will return to Peacock for a fifth season with a new group of fan favorites, including Kelly! 

Season 5 of the series will be The Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip: RHONY Legacy. The season will feature Kelly and other legendary apple-holders, including Luann de LessepsDorinda MedleySonja MorganRamona Singer, and Kristen Taekman. The gang will jet off to Saint Barthélemy for a surely tame and uneventful trip, right? 

We'll see about that!
