The Dating Fairy and the Drunk Text

Kelly gives it up for the single ladies and addresses Ramona's correspondence.

By Kelly Killoren Bensimon

 Six years ago, I decided to separate from my husband, which resulted in our divorce. I was with my ex-husband since I was 24, and didn't really have that much dating experience under my belt before him. My graduating high school class consisted of 20 students. I attended one year at Trinity College, and I had a boyfriend the entire time. Then, I was modeling/traveling around the world alone in my early twenties. Travel isn't an environment conducive to dating. At 37, I was single with two children, two homes, and a tremendous amount of financial responsibility. I immediately met someone younger than me, who showered me with attention I never had, and was devastated again when it didn't amount to anything.

How to Watch

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

On Season 2, Maximiliano Palcaio was on the show with me. I never inferred he was my boyfriend. He was a friend of mine. Then, came the black cloud of drama fueled by my portrayal on the RHONY. This really put me in a very cold place. I didn't think anyone would want to be with or date me. I definitely wouldn't want to date someone who was portrayed like I was. Let's be honest. So while movies are filming actresses getting their "groove back," I had no groove, no game, no nothing. I was honest with LuAnn and confided in her. I've always wanted to be married and live in a traditional way. LuAann is right, though. I can't look at everyman as marriage material. I need to have more fun.

For anyone who's single, I wish that a dating fairy comes and sprinkles love dust all over them. Everyone deserves to be in love.

Before this, I sent Ramona a note asking her to come to my home so we could discuss her issues with me. Since the first day I met Ramona, she's created an image of me in her head. I felt that we needed to spend some time together. She declined. That's why I had such an awkward moment with Cindy. I understand Ramona is very sensitive and would probably take my email the wrong way. I was right. Not only did Ramona backtrack, but she told Sonja that she was hurt that I didn't want to attend one of her events. I then received a drunk text from Ramona at 1:30 am on a Saturday where she misspelled a lot of words and stated "I will not support you, if you don't support me." I don't remember Ramona ever supporting me. Let's see how she handles this.

I can only be true to myself. I never forget the Golden Rule: treat others the way you want to be treated.

Governor's Island.... enough said.
