Just because Kelly Bensimon is on the Real Housewives of NYC doesn’t mean she has scores to settle.

Although Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice has been incensed by the arrival of sister-in-law Melissa Gorga on her reality show, this mom of two cannot be ruffled.

“I don’t have any enemies,” Kelly tells me Wednesday at the Fragrance Foundation’s FiFi Awards held at Lincoln Center in NYC . “I like everybody. I am Miss Congeniality. I’m a brunette. I don’t really hate anybody. I mean, they try to make me hate people, but I still don’t.”

She bristles when asked who’s the biggest bitch on the show this season.

“In all honestly, a lot of girls do a lot of really bitchy things,” she says. “To be honest with you, I think that’s one thing that they’re striving for, is who can be the bigger bitch? But that’s not cool. People don’t like that. My virtual family, they don’t like bitches. They like the cool girl, and I’d rather be cool all day long. I don’t need to be a bitch. Why? Bitch may have sold before, but it doesn’t sell now. It’s a whole new year and a whole new season. It’s all about good people with good values.”
