“Real Housewives of New York City”: Another day, another scandal

Apparently the gossip mongers have been completely preoccupied with Jon and Kate Gosselin’s supposed marital troubles, because otherwise I think I would’ve heard more about one of “The Real Housewives of New York City” being arrested last week for beating her boy toy.

Now why would anyone want to slug this handsome mug?

You can’t make this stuff up.

The Associated Press reports that Kelly Killoren Bensimon was nabbed by police in Manhattan on a misdemeanor assault charge after she punched her 30-year-old ex-boyfriend, Nicholas Stefanov.

Killoren Bensimon – 40 and the ex-wife of French photog Gilles Bensimon (whose name is constantly dropped by Tyra Banks on “America’s Next Top Model”) – surrendered on Thursday, two days after the alleged assault, the AP says. The complaint states that she hit Stefanov with her fist while in her apartment. (It should also be noted that Killoren Bensimon has two daughters, 10 and 8. I hope for everyone’s sake that they weren’t at home at the time.)

She was released without bail. The Daily News says her attorney referred to Stefanov as “a jilted lover.” Stefanov, on the other hand, says he’s still in love with Killoren Bensimon and that the altercation resulted from stress she’s under from being on the show.

Here’s the kicker: Stefanov is relieved that his beloved (or now former beloved) “had the courtesy to take her (engagement) ring off first” before clocking him in the face.

Yup, she’s a real sweetheart.

Update: A real-life Jersey girl (that would be me – metiny1 born, bred and still resides) will blog live on Facebook beginning at 11 p.m. EDT Tuesday, May 12, during the premiere of Bravo’s “Real Housewives of New Jersey.” Come join me and share your thoughts as we meet these five women.
