Eyes Wide Shut

Kelly discusses Alex's outburst and the inspiration she found in Morocco.

By Kelly Killoren Bensimon

I am just as clueless as you are as to what made Alex so upset. We've seen countless times where she's gone from 0 to 60 for no reason. This time her loud boots (do you wear big boots in Morocco?) made more of an entrance than she did. I was confused and honestly irritated that she stormed in for no reason. I was looking forward to my first tattoo. (Did you see the amazing presentation? Unreal.)

How to Watch

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

The messenger always gets killed. Was she arguing because she really needed to get it off her chest or was she simply looking to have "a moment"?

As you saw, I do not like to let situations escalate. I tried to remove Alex politely, because I promised myself that no one will ever be treated like I was. Sometimes it's hard to see yourself as others see you. I moved her out of what could have turned badly with LuAnn. LuAnn has no patience for Alex's outbursts. But, outburst or not, she has never looked better. Can we all applaud Brad Johns for the insanely beautiful hair color he applied to Alex?

I was truly so proud of Jill. She took a moment that could have escalated into a friend firezone and diffused the situation. People argue. If you really care about a person, you try to resolve. I literally cheered when I saw Jill's response.

Thank you Morocco for inspiring me to love color, be more open to new food and drink, and respect new cultures.

While I was there was I went off and visited an orphanage. The Moroccans are very proud of their culture and take amazing care of orphaned children. I was so overwhelmed by the love the organization and country had for the children. It was an amazing way to wrap a nice bow around such a tremendous trip.


Thank you Bravo for the trip of a lifetime.
