It’s crazy. Bethenny Frankel calls her “Crazy Kelly”, Kelly Bensimon, and Kelly calls Ramona crazy and situations “crazy” in this current crazy season of Real Housewives of New York.
The word “crazy” gets repeated more often in this season that “The Situation is” got repeated in season one of Jersey Shore.
Someone at Bravo needs to give these women a thesaurus.
In fact, there is nothing crazy about anyone in this season of Housewives. But if you believe that scenes like the one on on the Yacht this week isn’t stage, then … you’re crazy!
When LALATE asked a friend about if that yacht scene is crazy – in which Kelly suddenly erupts into terror, storms off, and then comes back happy -Â the reaction was “of course, but who cares.”

Real Housewives, all of them, have always “by accident” had the same type of scenes. It starts with an invite for lunch, dinner, drinks, to discuss something friendly. And in the case of the yacht scene this week, the plates aren’t EVEN ON TABLE until Kelly erupts. “I can’t believe you said that”. “You’re crazy”.
Is Kelly as a good an actress as she is a model? The Kelly Bensimon “conflict scenes” always feature Kelly grabbing her hair locks, one hand on the left, on the right, separating the hair, then letting it fall into her face. As soon as Kelly’s “conflict” starts, do you notice how her hair is suddenly in her face?
Bethenny Frankel, who called Bensimon a “Klemanity” last season, has her own way of getting into “conflict” with Kelly – Frankel just stares. It’s deer in headlights when Frankel and Kelly go at it – Kelly is pulling at that hair that which is starting to go out wild in all directions and Frankel looks like she has just turned to stone seeing Medusa erupt.
It’s a great bit. It’s predictable. It’s there every episode. But is it staged? Who cares – it’s downright enjoyable.
