Tory Burch’s Ex Dines With Ron Perelman; Kelly Bensimon Goes Back to School

1003_mockup.gifAs much as we’d like to, we can’t deliver dish from Oscar winners (Shirley MacLaine) and supermodels (Naomi Campbell, Coco Rocha and Karolina Kurkova) every week. After a head-spinning cycle of chats with A-listers, the celebrity quotient at Michael’s was of the low-wattage variety today with reality television refugee Kelly Killoren Bensimon and comedian Robert Wuhl representing the famous (infamous?) contingent.

Kelly Killoren Bensimon to be am New York Columnist

Kelly Killoren Bensimon used to be a writer for Gotham and an Editor at the now-shuttered Elle Accessories, but she’s most widely known for her role on the reality TV show Real Housewives of New York City. But maybe now that she’s going to be a columnist for am New York, people will start associating her with her original passion.

And before you dismiss the column, Bensimon told Keith Kelly that “It will be a little bit of everything: fashion, food, accessories, restaurants, sports, the arts.”

That’s right, the column – which debuts May 5th – will cover everything, so you can just take that Negative Nancy attitude somewhere else mister.
