Kelly Bensimon Insists The Housewives Are Better Off Without Bethenny Frankel

| Filed under: TV NewsBethenny FrankelReal Housewives


Hey, whatever she needs to tell herself to psych herself up for the upcoming season is fine by us! We want her in rare form!

Though the next season of The Real Housewives of New York has been shelved so Bravo can visit South Beach, the ladies of Manhattan are still sharing their thoughts on the upcoming season. Someone who always wants her opinions heard is Kelly Bensimon and she has quite a few to share about the show…and Bethenny Frankel.

As we're sure you are all aware, this will be the first season Bethenny won't be parading around the Upper East side with the rest of the ladies, leaving some to question if the show can sustain itself without her. Fear not, because as Kelly sees it, Bethenny was just holding them all back! She dished to one source:

“People think that without Bethenny, ‘Is the show going to be able to last?’ It was so unauthentic for the past two seasons. The great thing about this season is that, because the relationships are now three to four years old, the actual situations are organic. They are deep and they hurt… Now she’s gone and the show is taking a completely different direction, which is really exciting.”

Uh-huh, okay. So now, explain to us how the show is going to be less "unauthentic" with Bethenny gone? Will there be no more staged lunches? No more ritzy Manhattan parties paid for by generous donations from Andy Cohen? No more impromptu getaways on 50 ft long yachts to islands far away from racket of 5th Ave? Or are you talking about less cattiness on the show, less gossiping behind each others backs and less fake facades overall?

We've got to tell you … if any of this is a possibility, we don't think anyone will watch, Bethenny or no Bethenny!

Better stick to what you know, ladies!

    I am not even interested in this show without Bethenny. I dont like any of the woman. Bethenny was the anchor for this show.

  6. 6

  7. 7

    i'm not interested at all in watching the show without bethenny. i'm in love with "bethenny getting married?" shes awesome, so real.

    Even with our favorite girl Bethenny still in the show, she can't help you girls win in the ratings any more.
    You were upstaged by the Jersey girls and now, the Beverly Hills ladies have blown away all competition.
    The New York franchise is about as relevant as the snooze fest of the DC's elites, brown noseing Obama.
    I don't even know where Atlanta, Georgia is!
    Your fifteen minutes is up.

    Boring…..in my opinion, without Bethenny there's no reason to watch RHoNY.

    Won't watch the show without Bethenny. Kelly looks good, but she's a crazy dumb bell! Nothing that comes out of her mouth makes ANY sense!

  11. 11

    I don't know how or why they chose that woman to be on the show…..without bethany's honesty(and willingness to put kelly in her place….WAY DOWN THERE),i will not watch….it was getting old,anyway. As for Kelly…anyone who saw the "girls vacation"knows that she is REALLY crazy…i feel sorry for her children.

    Bethanny gave it "Funny". Everyone else is so in to themselves. Actually I like Alex and Ramona work for a living rather than the rest of them who live off their husbands. Nope sorry Alex and Ramona Im really not interested. You two get your own show and I will watch.

    the show would be better if they hired real drag queens instead of broads that look like them

  14. 14

    snooozeeeee Kelly … BRING ON THE DRAMA NY!!

    Bethenny, originally, was the most likeable until her own show. The moment she said "I can write a NT Times best seller but I can't install a baby seat…" she completely lost my interest. That was the defining moment where I realized that she craves celebuhood wayyy too much and became wayyy to full of herself. She thinks masking all her bs with humor will constantly give her a pass. Well, she's boring now. But only because her motivations are now transparent.

    Anyway, is it just me or does Jill Zarin look like she'd be a really awesome screw? She's incredible attractive for a red head. Hey, Jill, if your ever in LA, I'd love to meet up for some kaphee.

    Oh, Kelly? Isn't that just Dennis Rodman in a wig? Seriously. I bet she's hung, too.

    This show is the worst of the Housewives series. There is not one woman in the show that is the least bit interesting or worth watching. Don't just postpone this season, put the tapes in the hold forever file or better yet the "round file" cuz that is where they belong.

    kelly reminds me of the pretentious wannabe teenager who is always using words she doesn't understand to make herself look smarter…this is one vapid and stupid woman…and off topic - i hope jill is spending as much time and effort improving her mind as she is on her her outer shell….LOL…

    Kelly thinks that she is the "Star" of the NYRHW. I love Bethenny. I like her show "Bethenny Getting Married". One thing for sure, Bethenny has the handsome husband, her books, her drink "Skinny Martini?". She makes her own money not because she got it from her ex husband like Kelly, she makes her own fortune. Kelly doesn't even know how to talk. Who wants to watch a show with a dillusional woman like Kelly???? Last season was terrible, watching her with her "jelly beans" Yuck!!!! Kelly; Danielle, NeNe and Camille are so unbelieavable!!!!

    Okay! Perez confirms that Kelly's still got a full case of crazy going, and that she still tries to dog Bethenny affirms her jealousy. I probably will check in on Alex, Romona and Sonya, but "Bethenny Ever After" will be weekly viewing (starting 2/28).

    The show will suck without B. Period. Kelly Bensimon is the craziest person ever on reality tv. Period. She scares the shit out of me. Jill Zarin became extactly what Nene became to the Atlanta series, a full of herself famewhore. I cannot stand the bitch anymore.
