Kelly Bensimon Thinks The Political Feuds On Current Season Of RHONY Is ‘Tacky’: “I Think That’s Tacky. It’s Just Tacky”

Kelly Bensimon sounded off on the “tacky” political feuds playing out on the current season of The Real Housewives of New York City, and she did not hold back. "I think we all have to remember it’s reality TV. It’s not The New York Times. It’s really not legitimate, so for us to be having those kinds of conversations on reality TV, I think that’s tacky. It’s just tacky,” she told Us Weekly.

“Unless they were, like, doing something really amazing or they were making an impact, that might be a different story. But just to talk and argue about it? That’s just really tacky.”

As viewers of the show have witnessed on the Bravo hit reality seies, castmates Ramona Singer, a supporter of President Donald Trump, and Carole Radziwill, who passionately backed Hillary Clinton, have repeatedly butted heads over their differing opinions about last year’s presidential election. The drama came to a head on the Wednesday, May 3, episode of the show when Radziwill disinvited Singer from her election party because of their opposing views

“I don’t know Carole at all, but I just think slamming anyone for their political views is tacky,” Bensimon told Us of Radziwill’s attitude toward Singer. “It’s rude. It’s very uneducated.”

For her part, the reality star turned best-selling author has learned that political beliefs are best kept private. “When Trump was elected as president, I said some nice words about respecting our new president and I got slammed by Twitter, so I really just like to keep my politics to myself now,” she explained. “I vote for who I want to vote for and I support whoever I want. The only thing that I can really say and that I constantly repeat is that it’s about what you do every single day. You’re your own politician. I’m honored to have an amazing president. Whether it was Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump, that’s not my concern.”
