Kelly Bensimon Goes to Court for Alleged Assault of "Jilted Moron"

at . Comments

Kelly Bensimon reported to a New York City courthouse today, as the Real Housewife starred in her very own personal drama.

She faces a misdemeanor assault charge after she allegedly attacked boyfriend Nick Stefanov (pictured).

"I'm really upset by the entire process," Bensimon told Extra after the hearing. "My beautiful girls and I are being exposed to a horrible situation. I just think it just unsettling... My girls don't need to be exposed to something like this. It's really inappropriate."

Bensimon's lawyer Ed Hayes, meanwhile, was definitely credited with the quote of the day.

Asked if he thinks the situation could be described as a lovers' quarrel, Hayes replied: "I don't even know if I qualify him as lover. How about a jilted moron?"
