LuAnn de Lesseps, Jill Zarin, Kelly Killoren BensimonThe Real Housewives of New York seem to be feeling the holiday spirit, as they set aside cat fights in strapping on their skates and taking a turn around the Bryant Park rink.

Countess LuAnn de Lesseps, Kelly Killoren Bensimon and her daughter, Jill Zarin with husband Bobby and daugher Ally and Ramona Singer looked very much the snow bunny part (minus Jill, who dressed as if competing in an ABC ice skating spectacular), poised for some light exercise before turning in for sugar free, low calorie cocoa (we're just guessing).

Besides the general stunner of seemingly sincere smiles among the group is Jill's boasting of a book cover entitled, "Secrets of a Jewish Mother." Her own mom, oft dispensing pearls to Bethenny, did not pen the latest to grace the shelves. Jill herself is dispensing the wisdom. We all need tips in garish home decor, being politically incorrect and offering unsolicited opinions. Who doesn't, right?
