Kelly Bensimon: Why You Won't See Me Date

NYC Housewife explains her romantic "sabbatical."

By Lauren Metz

The Real Housewives of New York City's Sonja Morgan and LuAnn de Lesseps aren't shy about flaunting their shiny new boy toys in front of the cameras, but Kelly Bensimon? Eeh, she'll pass. 

"To be honest with you, I kind of took a [dating] sabbatical during filming just because I don't want these women kind of speculating about what I'm doing and what I'm not doing," she confides to EOnline. "I did go on one or two dates with some guys that were really, really nice."

But she was just not that into them? "I'm just good with myself, and besides, I have two unbelievable kids and I'm so proud to be their mother," Kelly continues.

Like fellow 'Wife Jill Zarin, the leggy model's also hoping to use her camera time this season to restore her image post the Scary Island mayhem. K dishes to E! that a new producer joined the show this season with a plan to show viewers another side of Ms. Bensimon – the single, working mom side. "Nobody knows that I work! Nobody knows that I have kids! People think all I do all day long is make pancakes."

Do you think Kelly made the right call? Or should her dating life be on-the-record? Start a Tweet Battle, and make your case.
