Kelly Bensimon: 'Real Housewives of New York' were cast mates, not friends

kelly-bensimon-jingle-gi.jpgOn Saturday (Dec. 10), celebs turned out for the annual Z100 Jingle Ball Concert at New York's Madison Square Garden. Donald Trump, Abigail Breslin and Khloe Kardashian were on hand -- along with 17,500 other revelers -- to see performances by Lady Gaga, LMFAO, Gym Class Heroes, Kelly Clarkson, Pitbull and more.

Zap2it was on the scene and caught up with a few of the celebs as they hit the red carpet, including ex- "Real Housewives of New York" co-star Kelly Killoren Bensimon. Bensimon, if anyone needs their memory jogged, is the ex-model who had falling outs with Bethenny Frankel, Jill Zarin, Luann DeLesseps, Romona Singer and pretty much everyone on the show.

Zap2it: What's the best Christmas present you ever received?

Bensimon: "A Rolex watch that my ex-husband gave me."

Zap2it: Do you keep in touch with any of your former cast mates from "The Real Housewives of New York?"

Bensimon: "Luann I speak to and Jill (Zarin) I talk to. We were cast mates, not really friends."

Zap2it: Do you have any New Years resolutions?

Bensimon: "To get rid of anything that's toxic -- guys, people, a toxic attitude. To get rid of anything that's not going the right way."

Funny, that was the same thing the "Real Housewives" producers resolved for the upcoming season.
