It looks like despite all the glitz and glamour of being a reality TV star, at the end of the day, Kelly Bensimon is still “not really cool” according to at least two people in the world–her daughters. What did the star of Bravo’s The Real Housewives of New York City have to say about her role as a mother, and how her children are taking her newfound fame? Read on for all the details!
Kelly Bensimon of Bravo’s The Real Housewives of New York City definitely wasn’t in the running for Miss Congeniality among the cast members of the hit reality show. With all of her confusing quotes, conflicting ideals (like claiming to only eat all-natural food and then scarfing down candy almost obsessively), and the drama between her and just about everyone else on the show, Bensimon was–let’s just say– difficult to figure out, and at times hard to watch.
But we’re not the only ones cringing whenever Kelly Bensimon opens her mouth on camera. Her daughters are also having a hard time seeing their mom on TV.
“They think I’m their mom,” Bensimon said of her daughters, Sea Louis, 12, and Thaddeus Ann, 10. “Because I’m their mom I’m not really cool, but their friends like me, so I guess my cool factor is like a two on a [scale of] one to ten–better than a zero.”
Like any pre-teen girls, Bensimon’s daughters are afraid that their mom will embarrass them by doing something outrageous on TV (Kelly, embarrassing?). The reality star says that her daughters have told her to “tone it down” on the show–and in their everyday lives. “They tell me to wait outside the school and not come in and not to embarrass them,” says the 42-year-old single mom. “I’m like, ‘I’m not even saying anything.’”
“Tone it down”? It sounds like these girls have a philosophy that mom would be better off adopting!
