I Hate Jill Zarin Kelly Bensimon’s Summer Vacation August 14, 2010
What has Kelly been up to since she’s not been filming or viewing her show on Bravo, The Real Housewives of New York?
Kelly isn’t the typical housewife, in fact, she’s not a wife and she has the freedom that most parents don’t, particularly single parents. Kelly has a team of nanny’s so she doesn’t have to concern herself with her children 24/7, she can travel and basically do whatever she wants to most of the time.
During season two of The Real Housewives of New York Bethenny accused Kelly of “collecting celebrities as friends” and Kelly did spend some time this summer doing just that.
In an interview, Kelly claimed that Brooke Burke is a really really good friend of hers. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dFR50sCw5j4&NR=1
Kelly ran a marathon in Chicago with Giuliana Rancic on August 1st but in photos, Giuliana didn’t seem thrilled to have been associated with Kelly. http://twitpic.com/2apci2
Apparently it doesn’t matter if they’re A list or D list, Kelly’s happy to be associated with any level celebrity, with Jake Pavelka. http://twitpic.com/2ap6ir
And any old Bachelor will do… http://twitpic.com/2an2mo

You get the idea, Kelly is constantly tweeting photos of herself with any celebrity she can get her hands on.
I just have to add this one because when the ladies were in St. John, Kelly made a suggestion of writing down grievances and putting them into a bowl, the bowl was in the shape of a fish. Several days after the airing of the episode, Kelly did a You-Tube video of herself in her living room/dining room area where that very same fish bowl could be seen, full of, you guessed it, Jelly beans! I tweeted her asking if she stole that bowl from the condo in St. John and she posted this:
http://twitpic.com/1v4j90 an up-close of the fish bowl with the caption: design with what you love
Kelly can say she received an education from Columbia, the University or the country, I really don’t care which, but she uses her adjectives and verbs wrong all the time. Her vocabulary and grammar are atrocious! Let’s review a few:
“Design with what you love” I think she meant “decorate” because I don’t think she designed that fish bowl, in fact I think she stole it from the Villa in St. John!
“Wear love”. This is a favorite of Kelly’s she says this all the time and it makes no sense whatsoever. You can feel love, make love, be loved but you cannot wear it.
She admires herself a whole lot too, she admires her pride for her daughters and admires her friendships. Another one she needs to look up before she keeps using it into the ground and trampling on it!
Kelly likes to tweet photographs of her in magazine articles as well, even if they’re not complimentary.

An article of Kelly’s horribly deformed body appeared alongside another photo of her looking completely different. http://twitpic.com/21a0p7 Kelly didn’t change, the photos were merely taken during different activities.
Kelly tweets photos of herself with her children (God love them). She most likely does this to either get sympathy or to combat the reports that she rarely cares for them herself. She just began tweeting photos of her kids recently since photos of Bethenny and her baby are appearing in magazines.
Kelly did have some issues with the nanny that she left her children with while taping in St. John for Real Housewives of New York, another reason that we can be sure Bravo didn’t force her to go. How could anyone force a single mother to go on a trip without proper childcare? Kelly did spend a lot of time on the phone with her children and the nanny while she was in St. John.
Before you feel sorry for the single mom, know that a reliable source (VERY reliable) told me that Kelly has several nanny’s and that while the children’s father is not a huge presence in their lives, she has plenty of help and in fact has been traveling all summer long without her children. (Miami, Los Angeles, Las Vegas and Chicago to name a few) Apparently the issues with the nanny have been worked out or she’s using a different one now.
Kelly has recently been tweeting to fans and non-fans alike that they should be giving back to charity. She doesn’t realize how insulting this is to most people since she has no idea what these people already do for charity or to give back. She doesn’t know the financial situation of people on Twitter and she has no idea how much they already give. Whether it is money or time, I believe that most people do what they can and they certainly do not need some moron of a housewife on a reality show to tell them to do more.
Her newest idea is that anyone who tweets anything mean to her should give $1 to charity for each tweet. Who the hell does she think she is? She has made herself a public figure by agreeing to do a reality show, she acts like a complete and utter MORON on the show. She is rude to four of the favorites on the show telling them to “zip it” and calling the most popular housewife in history a “ho-bag”, she puts herself out there by tweeting non-stop and expects that everyone be nice to her? She is allowed to be rude, name-call and lie but fans should take her advice and kiss her ass? I can’t decide if she’s really that stupid or ridiculously naïve or both.
Let’s go back and review Kelly’s behavior from the beginning of the season. There wasn’t anything that made Kelly relevant on the show, she turned up at Bethenny’s Skinnygirl Margarita release party, saying that she wanted a truce. Kelly then decides that Alex’s meeting for Brooklyn Fashion Weekend would be a good time to bring up again what happened last season. Is being called “Madonna” really that big of an insult? Get over it Kelly!
Kelly argued with Jill about an email that Jill sent. Jill was jealous that Kelly had buried the hatchet with Bethenny (thanks to Ramona’s big mouth) and Kelly had to explain to Jill that she only did that to appease fans and let everyone know that she’s the bigger person who made up with Bethenny. Idiot Jill seemed satisfied with that explanation.
Kelly argued with Ramona at Jill’s Kodak event, shoving her nose into someone else’s business was typically not Kelly’s MO but she decided it was her place to let Ramona know that Jill was upset about Ramona’s comments. I think that Ramona already knew that but Kelly butted in anyway and ended up arguing with Ramona.
Although it sounds like Kelly had a lot of activity up until this point during the season, in comparison to what was happening with Jill and Bethenny, Kelly was irrelevant. If this had happened on New Jersey or DC, maybe it would have given Kelly some attention, but with all of the confrontations and activity going on with all of the other housewives, Kelly was fading into the background. She better do something fast!
There’s nothing like a trip to the US Virgin Islands, an opportunity to get some attention and get people talking. Did anyone else notice that when the ladies were doing interviews for the show before the season started Ramona, who was teamed with Bethenny and Alex on the press tour, mentioned a few times that Kelly “went crazy this season”. I didn’t think much of it because I thought maybe it was another one of those “I’m up here, you’re down here” type of moments where Kelly tries to put someone in their place. When the other trio, Jill, Luann and Kelly would do interviews, Kelly blew off questions about Ramona’s statement saying, “it was nothing”. Who knew it was going to be so outrageous?
So did Kelly orchestrate this entire St. John’s fiasco? I don’t think so, but I do think that she planned something for that trip. Kelly said herself at the reunion, “why would I want to go with these ladies?”
Why indeed? Air time, a way to make yourself relevant and ensure that you’re on the show next season. We learned that both Jill and Luann warned Kelly against going, we know that Kelly had an issue with her children’s caretaker, we know that Kelly had no real ties to these four women that she was traveling with and in fact hated Bethenny and Ramona. Ramona being the guest of honor of the trip, there was absolutely no reason why Kelly should have gone.
Kelly’s insistence that she was forced to go aside, because no one believes it, she only went because she knew that this trip was going to be major air time. Kelly knew that this trip was going to be one of the featured events on the show and she could not miss being a part of it no matter what she had to endure to be there. Kelly also knew that this was her opportunity to make a scene and get people talking.
We learned about Kelly’s inability to relate to other people’s feelings, we learned that she does not like it when people talk about people that she cares about (Jill Zarin), we learned that when Kelly feels uncomfortable with the topic of a conversation, rather than staying out of it and keeping her mouth shut, she interrupts other people forcing them to change the subject.
Who remembers at the reunion when Kelly asked Alex, “Do you really care what Ramona is feeling?” I truly think that she believes that Alex doesn’t care what Ramona is feeling, another clue that Kelly doesn’t have any real friends, especially no real girl friends. That is what we girls do, right? We talk about our feelings. This made me think about the people who Kelly calls “friends”. Hypothetic situation: Kelly says that Giuliana Rancic is her “friend”. We know from Giuliana and Bill’s show that they are having some issues conceiving a baby. Do you think that if Giuliana tried to talk to Kelly about this, Kelly would be sympathetic to Giuliana’s feelings? Do you think that Kelly would say, “life is so friggin short, you’re young and beautiful and you’re wearing a beautiful Zac Posen dress, feelings are so 1979 so you should just get over it and move on!”?
Luckily Giuliana Rancic has real friends and family that have more sense and care about her enough to help her through any life issues that she has and Kelly isn’t a real friend anyway but I think you all get my point.
What about Kelly’s children? As they go through life, they will have some “feelings” and heartbreaks, they’ll have boy issues and girlfriend arguments, disappointments and difficulties. What do you suppose Kelly will say to them? “Why would you ever cry about boys?” There are times when a girl needs their mom, is Kelly the type of mom who these kids can go to when they need loving support and a shoulder to cry on?
On St. John, Kelly had a breakdown of some kind, there is no doubt in my mind. After seeing what Bravo aired and hearing the stories that we heard from the other Housewives that were there, we know that this was not a “break-through” and it was not “systematic bullying”. Kelly lost her mind, whether she had been taking drugs, drinking some type of alcohol that she is not used to or has a real mental problem, this was not the result of Kelly being bullied.
I truly believe that if Alex, Bethenny and Ramona had been harassing Kelly in any way, Sonja would have stepped in and tried to put a stop to it. Sonja reiterated that Bethenny was all about relaxing in the sun and cooking. Ramona even told us that Bethenny was the calmest she’d ever seen her. Bethenny was pregnant, engaged and had just lost her father. I cannot see her going out of her way to be mean to Kelly. I also cannot see Alex or Ramona attacking Kelly. Ramona was technically the “hostess” and we learned that Ramona made a promise to Kelly in advance that she’d have her back if anyone was mean to Kelly. We also know that it was the first trip Alex had taken without her family and was looking forward to relaxing, besides that I don’t think it is in Alex’s DNA to be the aggressor. Sonja was the one who, as she said, “had no irons in the fire”. She had no reason to lie when she told us that she honestly did not believe that anyone bullied Kelly.
When Kelly opened the door to her room and found the gift bag of from Bethenny, I think that what actually went on in Kelly’s head was that Bethenny was more successful in business, Bethenny was about to get married and have a baby, Bethenny was getting her own show on Bravo and her archrival, Bethenny was basically getting everything that Kelly wanted for herself. That is what caused Kelly to break down and cry hysterically on her bed. That is what caused Kelly to continually attack Bethenny’s profession. Kelly knew where it would cut deepest and she certainly couldn’t attack Bethenny’s pregnancy, engagement or father’s death. Kelly went for the one thing she could attack and what Bethenny is most proud of professionally, her chef title.
Jealousy. Kelly is so jealous of Bethenny that is evident in everything that she does. We’ve watched Kelly all summer long emulate Bethenny. Bethenny has two best-selling books about cooking and eating right. Kelly starts to post photos on Twitter of meals that she has made and low calorie desserts that she’s prepared (remember the horrible looking pie?) Kelly makes a You-Tube video of her diet for a week. Bethenny releases a Yoga DVD and Kelly prepares a You-Tube video of herself doing yoga. Experts will say that both the diet and the yoga were not only inaccurate, but potentially dangerous ways to eat and to do yoga. I don’t suppose Kelly consulted with experts or doctors before releasing these videos? Kelly, in her haste to copy Bethenny has become reckless and irresponsible.
Bethenny is on the cover of People magazine with her new baby. Suddenly Kelly is posting photographs on Twitter of herself with her children, something that she very rarely did in the past. Her children were always off limits and she is quoted as saying that she wants to maintain their privacy as much as possible. Apparently, now it is ok for her to slap the kids photos all over the internet.
Another clue that Kelly is jealous of Bethenny is that Kelly is quoted as saying the exact opposite, Kelly says that Bethenny wants to be her….Bethenny wants to wear the clothes she wears, the jewelry, the make up, the hair, Bethenny wants to go to all of the parties that Kelly goes to, according to Kelly.
In fact, of the many things that we’ve learned about Bethenny, it is that she does not enjoy being around a lot of people, she would much rather be home with her family and pre-Jason, with her dog, Cookie. Bethenny has her own style, her own look which is more classic and certainly would not suit the “hobo” style that Kelly sports. I can say with almost 100% certainty that Bethenny is not jealous of Kelly whatsoever!
Even as I type this, Kelly tweeted this:
@Kikilet On my way to montauk for some fun. Maybe mini golf
Montauk, you may recall is where Bethenny spends her vacations and where the finale of her show was filmed. It also happens to be where Bethenny is right now.
Do you suppose she is now stalking Bethenny? It wouldn’t surprise me, but even scarier than that tweet is this one:
@Kikilet Just saw a baby boy on the beach. I want a little baby boy. First I need the right man, no opportunists need apply
That woman raising a baby boy (or girl) would be criminal! I doubt that we have to worry about that, however, she’s 42 years old and has no man in her life, continues to act like a complete insane, batshit crazy moron. I cannot imagine any man could tolerate her, that is if she would find someone to meet her ridiculous standards, he must be “someone big” like her ex-husband, he has to not be Mr. Right Now and he needs to be Batman to her Robin. That guy doesn’t exist, at least I hope he doesn’t because we don’t want Kelly to multiply anymore! Oh right, and the guy cannot be an “opportunist” because it would be one hell of an opportunity to meet, fall in love with and marry Kelly Killoren Besimon. Augh!
Until Next Time…..
