She shot to fame on The Real Housewives Of New York City.

She slid her statuesque figure into a skintight black outfit while leaving the famed Mark Hotel – where Meghan Markle had her baby shower – on the Upper East Side of Manhattan.
Fit for a Real Housewife Of New York City: Kelly Bensimon, 52, was spotted enjoying an outing in the Big Apple’s toniest neighborhood this Wednesday
Kelly’s ensemble included torn jeans and a leather jacket and she added a pop of color by balancing on sky-high red stilettos.
Her latest sighting comes about a week after she was spotted out with her on-again boyfriend Nick Stefanov in New York.
Although they have gone through rough patches – including the time she was arrested for allegedly assaulting him in 2009 – they are evidently back together.
At the time of her arrest the NYPD told People: ‘She was arrested on March 5 at 9:10 a.m. for punching her fiance in the face, and [she] gave him a laceration under his left eye. She was arrested for assault – it’s a misdemeanor.’

Meanwhile a New York Post insider claimed that Kelly also had ‘a fat lip’ around the time of the altercation with Nick.
She has two daughters – Sea Louise, 23, and Thadeus, 21 – by her much older ex-husband, French fashion photographer Gilles Bensimon, 76.
Kelly was married to Gilles from 1997 until 2007 – two years before she began appearing on Bravo as a full-time Real Housewife.

She was wife number three for Gilles and bears a faint resemblance to his previous spouse, Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue icon Elle Macpherson.
In 2009, when she was still a Real Housewife, Kelly told Gawker that her general motherhood tip was to ‘just live every day like it’s your last.’
Said she: ‘It doesn’t matter how much sleep you had or if you’re wearing the same sweatpants from last week. Enjoy every single moment because life is so short.’
Since leaving her Bravo reality show Kelly has churned out two novels – A Dangerous Age in 2016 and The Second Course in 2017.

A few years ago she also broke into the realtor business and was forthright to Page Six about how her previous life has fed into her current gig.
‘I’ve worked with so many people in so many capacities and the biggest takeaway from that is trust,’ said the sizzling sensation.
‘So when I branched out into other opportunities especially in the real estate market, people trust me,’ Kelly added.
