There have been some wild and crazy characters to grace the small screen over the years in the Real Housewives franchise, but none that we remember better than Real Housewives of New York alum Kelly Killoren Bensimon. When we caught up with the 50-year-old socialite at the Neiman Marcus Hudson Yards grand opening in NYC, she told Life & Style exclusively that while she’s not planning an immediate return to the franchise, “never say never!”
“Everybody always asks me, you know,” she explained about the prospects of a return to the series. “I’ve been working really, really hard and real estate, you know, the scope of my work ranges from everything from, you know, simple residential to multifamily.” Clearly, she’s got a lot on her plate right now while working in high end real estate — probably a far cry from reality TV, but stressful in its own right.
But the mom-of-two definitely finds the fun in her gig no matter what. “It’s been really interesting and funny to work with all these different people where I can actually help and bring the right buyers for the right properties, whether they’re $500 million properties to your perfect $1 million apartment. So it’s just been a really great fun environment,” she said.
OK, girl, we get it — you’re loving life! So, can we expect to see Kelly’s wild and wacky side back on Bravo any time soon? “I mean, I think like, I really, I don’t know, never say never on Housewives because I love those girls, but I work for a living so it’s tough,” she explained. “I would have a hard time. I would have a hard time filming cause I’m like literally working 24/7.”
Well, even though we didn’t get that resounding yes we were hoping for, we still love the idea that Kelly is open to the prospect of a return to the show that made her a household name. If you’re a fan, we’re sure you’re grateful at the news, too — all that potential drama is like untapped gold!
