Kelly Killoren Bensimon: Set to Premiere on The Real Housewives of New York City

at . Comments

The Real Housewives of New York City return for a second season on February 17 - and they've added a new spoiled star to their brood.

Kelly Killoren Bensimon debuts this season on the Bravo series.

She recently spoke with Reality TV World about the experience, specifically answering a question about what she brings to the mix.

New Housewife

What do you bring to the show that it might not have had before?
Well first of all I live downtown, so I have that. I'm a single mom, so it's like I'm single, I'm working and I'm very... although I'm successful I'm very relaxed about myself. It's not like I'm super-aggressive about things. I just have a lot of opportunities and I like to maximize them, but never in an aggressive way.

I'm not really a New Yorker in that way. People are always like "Are you from California?" They never think I'm from New York.

So I think that I have a more relaxed approach to everything, but also just the whole downtown [thing]. I mean, I live downtown, so everything that I do is in a different way, not [good or bad], just different. I'm a foil to the other girls, definitely.
