For three seasons, Kelly Bensimon caused a lot of drama on the Real Housewives of New York City. And, now that Season 11 of the popular Bravo show is in full swing, Bensimon has revealed if fans will see her come back to reality TV.
As RHONY fans know, Bensimon joined the cast during Season 2, and her erratic behavior plus her memorable showdowns with Bethenny Frankel made her a true Bravolebrity. But, when Page Six asked her last week about a possible return to RHONY, Bensimon said that she would like to make a comeback, but in a surprising way.
“I think there’s definitely going to be a comeback, but it has to be something that’s work-related,” Bensimon said at WE tv’s Bridezillas event in New York City. “People like to see that I work, and I’ve had such longevity. 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.”
When Bensimon left RHONY in 2011, she began a career in luxury real estate, and she currently works in Manhattan for Warburg Realty. Could this mean that Bensimon will make an appearance on Million Dollar Listing New York?
Bensimon says that the show needs a girl, so this just might be the Bravo show where the 50-year-old makes her reality TV comeback.
She also had an interesting idea for Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Bensimon says that in the wake of the Varsity Blues college admissions scandal, Fuller House star Lori Loughlin would be a perfect fit for the cast.
Bensimon explained that she doesn’t believe in buying anything and everything for your kids, and, she says that she has done her best to instill values in her children. The former RHONY star says that it was disappointing to see someone we have grown up with on television stoop so low, and she wasn’t impressed. But, “maybe she’d be good for Housewives.”
Ask her and she'll tell you how "important" she is, but she's clearly unstable. https://t.co/OLkEsewShB

Both Loughlin and her fashion designer husband Mossimo Giannulli were arrested last week after they allegedly paid $500,000 to have their two daughters designated as recruits to the University of Southern California crew team to gain admission into the elite school, despite the fact that neither participated in the sport.
Bensimon is the mother of two daughters – Sea, 21, and Teddy, 19, – and she understands how difficult the college admissions process can be. However, Kelly Bensimon says that the best thing to do is for parents to listen to their kids about what they want to do instead of pushing them into something the parents want.
New episodes of Real Housewives of New York City air Wednesday nights on Bravo.
