Kelly Bensimon Returns!

Kelly Killoren Bensimon's daughter Sea has started her second year of college and now her youngest daughter Teddy is off to college too, which leaves The Real Housewives of New York City alum (and new real estate agent) back at home with their dog, Fluffy.

"Empty nester vibes," Kelly posted on Twitter. "First night without my kids at home..."

That's a completely common parental sentiment, and it's often accompanied by a river of tears and sad emotions, but since Kelly accompanied it with a photo of herself beaming in a bikini (click here to see), she seems to be rather okay with the new normal.


Kelly has been anticipating the empty nest for a while now. She told New York Post in February 2018 that "it’s off to the races” when it comes to her dating life once both her daughters are out of the house. She even teased her potential online dating profile: “I’m an empty nester and I’m ready to do almost anything!”
