Former 'Real Housewives of New York's' Kelly Bensimon Lists Hamptons Estate for $12 Million
Previously listed as a $300,000 summer rental, the former housewife is now looking to unload the property.
Do you want to live like one of Bravo’s Real Housewives -- or ex-Housewife in this case. Former The Real Housewives of New York City star Kelly Killoren Bensimon is trying to unload her Hamptons home for $12 million.
According to the Prudential Douglas Elliman Real Estate listing, the two-story East Hampton mansion is 5800 square feet with five bedrooms.
The agent also boasts “a sun-filled formal living room with fireplace and French doors, a luxurious master suite with fireplace and private terrace leading to a bonus office or guest space, and a sleek stainless steel kitchen, which opens up to a spacious family room with fireplace and dining area.”
According to Curbed, Bensimon put the property up as a summer rental for $300,000 in 2010. A lot has changed since then.
Bravo decided not to renew her contract along with Jill Zarin, Alex McCord, and Cindy Barshop for the upcoming Season 5 last September.
Yet, things began to look up for the former model, writer, and reality star when she signed with managers Larry Rudolph and Rebecca Lambrecht of ReignDeer Entertainment last November. Rudolph’s celebrity client list has included Britney Spears, Justin Timberlake, Nick Lachey, Jessica Simpson, Pauly Delvecchio, and Lindsay Lohan.
Bensimon is currently working on a shoe line with BBC International called "Kelly" and a new healthy lifestyle book, I Can Make You Hot! with St. Martin’s Press, which will be available in April 2012. And, she’s working on developing a new TV project.
