Quotable: Kelly Bensimon Says She’s Not Crazy

“It was a nervous breakthrough. I learned don’t do it. Don’t be around people who don’t like you. I will never engage them like that ever again. I learned my lesson, as should everyone. It was four people against one. I go on this trip, I’m trying to be open. I have no expectations. I’m trying to be nice to these women who clearly don’t like me. But the minute I got on the trip, they went after me. It was constant. It’s an awkward position. Normally you’d be like, ‘I’m not dealing with this… I’m leaving. But this is not a situation where you can leave. You have to stay and you have to police them otherwise then you’re not a part of what’s going on and then they go off. This is me being a Housewife on a television show. This is not me in my real life.”
