Kelly Killoren Bensimon creates her own anti-bullying PSA

Real Housewives of New York City star Kelly Killoren Bensimon has created her own PSA to speak out against “systematic bullying.”

She’s referencing her bizarre meltdown, and in the YouTube video, she says, “I just wanted to clear the air.” But of course, she does no such thing, and instead just says that “the most important thing that happened is one thing that I realized: systematic bullying is never okay, four against one is never okay.”

Of course bullying is never okay, but by creating this video, Kelly casts herself as the victim, and the footage in the episodes clearly shows she gives as much as she gets, if not more so. The real question is whether this a strategic argument or another demonstration of the odd behavior we saw, including her denial of her own contributions to the arguments.

Review: Married at First Sight

Marriage At First Sight

In an era of Tinder and Grindr, instant acceptance or dismissal of a potential partner, or instant sex with another body, Married at First Sight offers the thrill of watching strangers deal with the very basics of relationships.

Beyond the headline-grabbing premise, the series has turned out to be a stripped-down, authentic exploration of something very interesting. Read the full review.
