Being a writer and a model, isn't all Kelly has going for her. She also has her own line of jewelry, several in fact. Her style for fashioning jewelry is quite unique. She has designed them with pearls, metals, crystals, and religious medallions and combined them with materials such as fishing swivel, feathers, leather and whatever else her creative mind comes up with. Portions of her sales from her jewelry lines and her books are going to charities, such as, "Feeding America," and helping people all over the world to have clean water through "GENEROSITYWATER.ORG/KellykilloreanBensimon."

Kelly Bensimon is also a cast member of the Real Housewives of New York City and began her role in season 2 and continues to entertain to this day. Her fued with Bethanny Frankel has finally ended, with Bethanny quitting the show. Apparently they had a real confrontation on an episode of season three, which ended up being one of the most popular episodes televised that season. I guess the public loves drama.

Kelly Bensimon was born in Rockford, Illinois and went to Trinity College, in Hartford, Connecticut, for one year, but later graduated from Columbia University School of General Studies and earned her degree in Literature and Writing.
