You heard it right: Real Housewives New York star Kelly Killoren Bensimon was arrested and released for punching her boyfriend Nicholas Stefanov two days ago. Her beatdown causing him a black eye and cut face. She hit him “with a closed fist, thereby causing informant to suffer a laceration below informant's left eye and substantial pain" according to the criminal complaint.
But what I find interesting about this is that Kelly Killoren Bensimon is 40 years old while Nicholas Stefanov is ten years her junior. Seems to me the prime requirement of being on Real Housewives New York is to either be a gold digger or to be dating a gold digger (as we can safely assume Nicholas Stefanov is since we KNOW he’s not dating her for her personality). And, oddly enough, this fact fills me with a certain level of dread since Real Housewives has approached my girlfriend about their next season…
But back to topic: This beating between Kelly Killoren Bensimon and Nicholas Stefanov raises the same question I had as a child when Axl Rose claimed his supermodel girlfriend Stephanie Seymour beat him. What do you do if your piece-of-rear girlfriend beats you up? I mean, I’m sure both men were torn between their need for justice and the fact they were hurt by a girl that couldn’t weigh more than 100 pounds soaking-wet. Do you just lick your wounds in silence or face your immanent emasculation by going public?
Either way you lose, which I’m sure Nicholas Stefanov is currently learning. But then again he was dating Kelly Killoren Bensimon, who’s featured on Real Housewives New York… so we know he’s used to losing in the game we call life.
