Kelly Bensimon will be on Playboy’s cover, joining a long list of reality star cover models

Real Housewives of New York City star Kelly Bensimon will be on the cover of Playboy in March, keeping Playboy reality TV-focused this year, since an Amazing Race cast member is the current Playmate and Taradise star Tara Reid is on the cover. “I’m thrilled to be on the cover and show what sexy looks like at 41,” Kelly told Page Six through her publicist, meaning Kelly probably didn’t say that at all.

In honor of Kelly’s announcement, The Frisky gathered 10 reality TV star Playboy covers, from Heidi Montag to Jenna Morasca and Heidi Strobel, who appeared together after stripping for chocolate and peanut butter on Survivor.
