Kelly went to Morocco on what she calls the “trip of a lifetime,” but she could just as easily call it a life-changing trip.
During a birthday party there, The Real Housewives of New York City star met with a psychic – and got a pretty major prediction on the episode which aired last week.
“The psychic in French tells me I think too much, and that I am going to get married and I am going to have a baby,” Bensimon, who has two daughters, Sea Louis, 12, and Thaddeus Ann, 10, told In the Mixx at Hamptons Magazine’s Memorial Day Party at the Southampton Social Club. “This year I’m not going to have a baby but I’m going to be pregnant and I’m going to get married.”
According to Kelly, her sit-down with the fortuneteller at the party wasn’t just another parlor game. “I’m on it. I’m like, ‘Okay, I’m doing my work. I have to start,’ ” she said. “Yes, I want to get married and have a baby.”
Bensimon finds hope in other women who’ve made their dreams come true. “Just the other day we hear that Kim Kardashian is engaged,” Kelly said. “She is so unbelievable and I have so much respect for her. And to be honest with you I’m not that jealous of many people – I’m just not a jealous person – but the fact that she’s so happy and engaged and found true love [with NBA star Kris Humphries], I’m jealous. I am.”
“It’s amazing,” Kelly continued. I’m just so happy for her … She’s wanted it, and that’s just so exciting for her.”

Killoren Bensimon, now in her fourth season on “Real Housewives of New York City,” is going to return to her roots in the publishing world with a weekly column in amNew York, the freebie newspaper.
“It will be a little bit of everything,” said SoHo resident Bensimon, “fashion, food, accessories, restaurants, sports, the arts.”
When she was married to former Hachette Filipacchi Creative Director Gilles Bensimon, she was the editor of now-defunct Elle Accessories. Bensimon said she got her start as a $100-a-week writer for Hamptons Magazine and was one of the people working on Gotham in the early days. “This is my first love,” she said of the writing world.
She and her ex must have stayed on pretty good terms as he shot her nude pictorial in the March Playboy.
The column starts May 5, a few days before celebrity photographer Patrick McMullan also begins a weekly column for the paper, chronicling the social events of the city.
They were both hired by publisher Paul Turcotte, rather than the editor. For the past year, he’s been trying to rebuild the battered ad base of the paper, owned by Newsday parent company Cablevision.
I have a lot of loves, but to be specific, my major loves are : what my kids like to do, where to eat, shop, and what’s an easy way to be “green.” All of my summer favs are listed in my column J’adore. And for those who didn’t know, HAMPTONS Magazine is where I wrote my first column called “In the Spirit of the Hamptons“, which later graced the title of my first book and became a series for Assouline publishing.
Tweet me @kikilet and tell me what j’adore (you love).
