Kelly Bensimon was a polarizing cast member on The Real Housewives of New York City for three years. Now that the show is back for its 11th season, does this mean that she will be as well? Read on for all the details.
Kelly, 50, joined RHONY during season 2. She became known for her epic showdowns with costar Bethenny Frankel as well as her erratic behavior with the cast in St. John (AKA "Scary Island").
So does she have any desire to return to the show that helped make her a household name? Not so much, although she would like to come back to reality television for a completely different reason.
The focus would have to be on her career in real estate. "I think there’s definitely going to be a comeback, but it has to be something that’s work-related,” she told Page Six at WE tv’s Bridezillas event in New York City earlier this week.
Kelly started a career in luxury real estate after she left RHONY in 2011. She currently works for Warburg Reality in Manhattan. “People like to see that I work, and I’ve had such longevity,” she continued. “I’m educated and I put my money where my mouth is. If I say I’m going to do something, I actually do it.”
Would she appear on Million Dollar Listing New York then as opposed to her original Bravo stomping ground of RHONY? Stay tuned. "I do think they need a girl," Kelly said.
