RHNY: Columbia Schumbia!

"Honestly, if being inauthentic means graduating from Columbia University, writing three books, starting two magazines, bearing two children, being the ambassador for wool, running a marathon for charity -- if that's inauthentic?"

-Kelly Bensimon

Really? You know, I don't mean to split hairs but...
"Kelly went to Columbia University School of General Studies and graduated in 1998." Bensimon's rep said.
According to its Web site, The School of General Studies of Columbia University is a liberal arts college "created specifically for returning and nontraditional students".
Inauthentic? Hmmm...That's such a strong word.

I still don't understand why anyone would submit themselves to Bravo. I enjoy watching, like the rest of us, but don't these women realize that they never come off well?

It boggles the mind. Particularly those with children. I mean how cruel is it to expose your kids to that kind of scrutiny?

Remember when I blogged about what happened to Ramona's daughter here? Sad.

kelly stated why did the show in the May issue of Harper's:

“I wanted to put my name up there,” she says. “I was like, it’s not enough for New York to know me. I wanted the rest of America to know me. I have a great life. I have a lot of fun. I’ve done amazing books.”

I bet she's regretting it now. I would be.
