Real Housewives of New York City: Bethenny Frankel On Kelly Bensimon Being Crazy!


Watching off the hook drama on the TV from the comfort of your couch is one thing. Living it is a totally different story.  I would usually opt for a lavish luxury vacation but there is one place I would not want to be, on a yacht in St.John, at least not with the Real Housewives of New York City that is.  New mom Bethenny Frankel dished about the episode that aired last night. And although it seemed like a 10 on the insanity scale, Bethenny said, “what aired was very tame compared to what actually happened. I think that to air the full scope of it would terrify the viewers.” She also talked about Kelly Bensimon saying:

“I have to be honest. I felt for a few years now that I was seeing something in Kelly that I couldn’t believe others couldn’t see. I grew up in an insane asylum, so I can sense when someone is unstable from the beginning. I have seen signs of Kelly’s erratic behavior for years now, and of course there was the domestic violence charge with her ex boyfriend. Things like that just don’t happen to people. A large part of me feels sorry for her and sincerely thinks she should not be participating in a reality show environment. I don’t think she can resist the temptation of the attention it brings regardless of the fact that it may not be good for her. Reality television is very stressful under the most normal circumstances.”

She continued to say:

“We were truly terrified ourselves, and I must point out that none of us came home from that trip and told anyone about what went on there. We understood how serious it was and we were all scared. That night when I went to bed, I was legitimately scared for my safety as well as Kelly’s. I know Alex felt the same. It was a completely horrendous trip and experience. That is the God’s honest truth.”

She also talks about Jill’s “grand entrance” but opted not to discuss her new baby saying “I would discuss my new baby girl aka the chick pea, but I would rather do it in a different forum. The details of this episode are so psychotic that I don’t even want her mixed in with that negative energy. Just know that I thank you for all of your positive emails, love and advice. ”
