    I think Kelly is a pathological liar with many many deep rooted troublesome issues. If Kelly wants to profess to me, one person in the midst of what 3million plus viewers, that she is a “very private” person, hey right there proof of the pudding. I think she is a disgrace to the modeling industry, to motherhood (she placed HER CHILDREN on the show), to the empowerment of all women, to humane events and their meaning, to maturity, to everything that will ultimately confuse her children and what it means to be a role model. I have a beautiful 22 year old daughter and I would never, never submit her to such embarrassment of my actions with an audience of 3 million plus, and would be ashamed of myself and of her if she EVER were to act as does Kelly in private or public. She needs to be taken off the air.
