Can I be honest with you?
The whole “Real Housewives” phenomenon slipped right past me. Oh, I don’t think they missed me; a middle-aged, bald-headed stooge is probably not their key demographic.
KELLY BENSIMON podcast excerpt: “(‘The Real Housewives of New York City’) is on Bravo, so it’s not on national television. So I think a lot of people recognize me more from Playboy than the show.”
And I probably wouldn’t have ever gotten interested in any of it but for the March 2010 issue of Playboy magazine. Smiling sweetly at me—maybe not at you, but definitely at me—was the stunning Kelly Bensimon. That’s how I learned she was one of the stars of Bravo’s “The Real Housewives of New York City.”
Suddenly, I was a lot more interested in this whole “Housewives” phenomenon. And I’m thinking they need to do the next iteration of the show right here in the new new media capitol of the world. I can think of plenty of Real Housewives of St. Petersburg!
But I digress. Kelly Bensimon is a beautiful woman, one who can give the usual barely legal girl of Playboy a run for their money in my book, any day.
