Kelly Bensimon Does Damage Control Via TwitterAD Lynn
Coming off of last night’s “Kelly Bensimon: Crazy” episode, the most volatile Real Housewife is speaking out—on Twitter. Sure, The Real Housewives of New York is always over the top, but last night took the cake. And it took it at the expense of Bensimon, whose apparent mental break was painfully documented on camera. The entire thing unraveled during a group vacation to the island if St. John, a trip that turned into a descent into hell.
So why’s Bensimon so calm this morning? Here tweets are almost level-headed and serene. Who’s the real Kelly? Excerpts from the Kelly Bensimon Twitter feed, below, plus a Twitter tidbit from Ramona Singer, too.
Right from the start, Kelly Bensimon tweets a disclaimer:
i wish i could talk about the mechanics of the show, but i cant. have fun with it. dynasty without the money or power
She also responded to a twitter message from one particular concerned viewer, who asked, “You scare me and I feel bad for your children…how can someone be so unstable and be a mother?” Replied Kelly:
my children are amazing. its tv, have fun with it. i was so creeped out by this trip. it was so disgusting
In fact, her kids are getting a little treat, perhaps for their patience with their mom’s on-screen antics. Kelly writes:
i am taking my kids to justin beiber its their #dream concert
Here are a slew of other tweets she posted about the episode. Make of them what you will:
i signed up for the kookiness. i know what i am on, and who i have to endure.
i don’t want to win, i jut want to get out unscathed. i am too real and nice for these women.
these women are vicious/ jealous. they hated me before i got on the show. haters are part of the ecosystem. just laugh
She references the upcoming end-of-season Real Housewives reunion show, and asks fans for help! Here’s her plea:
we need a reunion plan. if you don’t want these women to win, give me advice.i will use it verbatim and name u on the show. tell your friends
If you’re worried about Kelly, it seems that today, at least, she’s taking care of herself—and others! At around 9 a.m. she tweeted:
off to yoga and then to get my rescue lab from Animal Haven. she’s goin’ to get a whole lotta love.
All in all, she sounds a heck of a lot saner than Courtney Love. As for the photo above? It was posted on Twitter by Ramona Singer, with a note: “Wasn’t last night’s show crazy? Had to show you photo of RHONYC – 4 of us in St. John looking hott on the beach!”
Got any recs for Kelly for the reunion show? Last night, Sarah Jessica Parker had one! She was guest-for-the-night on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live, and joked (well, half-joked) to host Andy Cohen: “you should have some actual medical professionals available during that reunion.”
Love SJP. Love the Housewives — well, a few of them, at least.
