Kelly Bensimon is disappointed at how she came off on The Real Housewives of New York, she told us at last night's Gracie Awards at the Marriott Marquis. "I think it was not exactly me just because I was incredibly guarded," she said. "I was a nervous wreck! Like after the show, Jill said to me, 'You’re such a nice person, why weren’t you like that on the show?'" It wasn't just viewers and the rest of the cast who were deprived of the chance of getting to know the Real Kelly; she was, too. "I felt badly too because I didn’t get to see the real me," she mused. Yeah, we said. That must have been really ... difficult. Anyway, tell us about Planet Kelly. What is that? Kelly's eyes lit up. On Planet Kelly, she said, “Everything is happy, the grass is really green, people are really really nice .... There’s, like, fun everywhere and there’s excitement and new opportunities all around. It’s a really great place — you should come!” We felt like we were already there.
