Kelly Bensimon Rushes to Defense of Danielle Staub

by at . Comments

Danielle Staub may have been a drug-addicted stripper in a former life, but, hey, who is Kelly Bensimon to judge?

In response to the controversy surrounding Staub, Bensimon is showing sympathy to her fellow Housewife.

“Everybody deserves a second chance,” Kelly told People. “If you’ve made a mistake in life, you have two choices, you can either sit in the Lazy-Boy and eat popcorn and talk about it, or you can get out and do something fun. And I think that’s what she’s doing. I like her courage.”
