Kelly Bensimon: 'I'd Rather Wear Skinny Pants Than Show My Boobs'

It may be fall, but the Real Housewives of New York City star isn’t giving up her short-shorts just yet. Kelly Bensimon turned up at the Alice + Olivia party last night during New York Fashion Week showing off her famous gams in cool shorts and an easy shirt from the label. “This is my version of fall,” Bensimon told PEOPLE. And though Kelly might be hanging on to her leg-baring style for now, when the temperature starts to plunge, the sexy Housewife admits that she’ll be trading in her hot pants for skinny jeans. “I’m really liking skinny jeans and white shirts,” she says. “I love the idea of the big, oversized shirt and skinny jeans and sky-high shoes. I want to be really, really comfortable this fall, but I want to be smokin’ sexy, too.” And for Kelly, that means keeping it covered. “I’d rather wear skinny pants than show my boobs. I think sexy is just the way that you feel,” she says. “I think the girl that is sexy is the girl that has a lot of confidence, not the girl that has big boobs or a big butt.” —Andrea DeSimone; reporting by Asher Fogle

Why a publication like People gives any print space to this person is beyond me. Kelly’s 15 minutes are up. As a reader I’m tired of seeing her. She adds nothing to fashion and “honestly” she’s not that attractive.

Somebody tell this tranny that we don’t care if she’s sexy or not, we just need to know if she is male or female. No one wants to see her boobs, is she for real???

Bill on

i rather she put a bag on her head

hallie on

She posed in Playboy and now she says she’d rather wear skinny jeans than show her boobs? Really?

Melissa on

I’m sorry didn’t she pose for playboy??

sandy on

So1979 on

What a tool. This woman’s life is nothing but drivel.

Liz on

Kelly hon, newsflash we don’t want to see your boobs either!

tobey on

I thought this thing had disappeared, why bring it up again?

Michele on

Please, did she forget Playboy, Oh, I forgot she doesn’t have a brain. Call the Wizard of Oz “STAT”. She needs a brain!

Dena on

Thanks for your input crazy Kelly. I guess those weren’t your boobs in Playboy?

carrie on

and in kelly’s case, clearly not the girl with the big brain.

This wo-man is a complete idiot.

Kristin on

Interesting that she posed in PLAYBOY but “prefers to wear skinny pants vs showig my boobs.” Get serious , you are fooling no one. I am hoping she will not be returning to NY Housewives w/ all her Kel-amities.

Alyssa on

Ummmm…..her 15 minutes was up 2 months ago.

Cindy on

If she would rather show her legs than her boobs why did she pose for playboy?? Nutcase!

Kim on

I NEVER commet on these things, but I cannot stand this lady she is such a raging IDIOT, WHY? Does she get any attention at all is beyond me..

Lori A on

Sweetie, I would wager a bet nobody want’s to see your boobs either.

SusiQ on

Ahhh. ..we have a winner. . .of the Who Cares Bowl.

Reba on

People must be hurting for juicy gossip otherwise why would they post this info…gathering from the comments I’m not alone in my thoughts that this info is worthless.

s on

as usual nothing she says makes sense – what a waste of time she is – please go away – or at least shut up – please don’t come back to house wives – we need an intelligent replacement – oh please

katty on


katty on

will she ever go away?

josey on

KELLY you crazy…….Get off the show.I’m tired of looking you

AJH on

If you don’t want to show them, then why would you get implants?

Liz on

wait, didn’t she wear many a dress last season on the show where she came close to a few nip slips? oh and also– playboy? i guess that’s not showing any boobage, is it? she’s an idiot.

huh? on

But you’ll wear short short dresses that show your vajay…or pose for playboy. who are you kidding?! FAKE!!!!!!!

RJ on

She is gorgeous. If any of you people writing negative comments saw her on the street you’d stare and be green with envy. She’s hot and hasn’t let herself go like so many women in their 40s. Those are the bitter women who write negative comments on sites like these.

Jon on

Who cares!

KAT on

OH MY GOD!! MY EYES!!!! That is one HOMELY hag!!!! And PLEASE do not insult transvestites, OR Rupaul!!!! This genius must have forgotten her little Playboy stint!! And ANYBODY who would want to see her nude in ANY form is just as big a “boob”!!!!

Jan J on

She did pose for Playboy so I don’t get it. She looks like a guy- her and Danielle from NJ both look like men. They should put the 2 of them on a show– they would have to show it on the Syfy channel. Even Kelly’s voice– she sounds like a man. I think the Playboy shoot was to prove she is NOW a woman…sort of.

Jan J on

Um RJ– there is no way that I would ever be “green with envy” looking at this person. I wouldn’t even want to look at her. Hot? Compared to what?

Mary Bodger on

Hot pants are so 1979 !

Sara on

Who is this person?

julie on


KJK on

Okay, no one can argue that this woman is a moron. However, will people stop with the transvestite comments when you are referring to women? Who are you all to judge this person’s attractiveness? With 60% of Americans being clinically obese, the chance that unattractive people are commenting on this blog are pretty good. My point is that I am pretty sure that the people commenting have NO BUSINESS JUDGING HOW OTHER PEOPLE LOOK. Comment on what she is saying…not what she looks like.

Kimberly on

Excuse me…this coming from the woman who posed for Playboy???
