    Which new reality star may have chosen the, um, wrong profession, considering this recent statement of hers? Click below for answer...

    It's Bravo's newest Real Housewife of New York City, Kelly Killoren Bensimon, confessing her feelings in her Page Six Magazine column.  Also, check out the video feed above from Plum TV we just got!

    Oh my God, my face is on buses. I'm in a taxi on my way to the Rangers game the other day and I see an ad for Bravo's The Real Housewives of New York City (the second season premieres Tuesday). I'm reading the tagline, "Six in the city" and then I look closer and I'm like, "Oh my God, I'm the sixth in the city!" I'm a Columbia graduate whose favorite restaurant in New York is the trustee dining room at the Met—and I'm watching the teaser for the show thinking, "Is that really me?" I'm not used to all this drama. With six independent women, there's going to be some heat and during filming, there was an altercation with one particular cast member. I told her I wouldn't put up with that kind of feisty behavior. But I'd definitely do the show again. I'm a single working mom and I've created this amazing life. I'm hoping that doesn't inspire jealousy, but aspiration. I want people to be like, "How did Kelly do that?" I want them to see a woman who's having a lot of fun but without being aggressive. You can have it all—with a smile too.
