Kelly Bensimon's 'Bikini Body' Secret Is a Lie


kelly benismonKelly Bensimon is a liar. You know it. I know it. The American people know it. Nothing irritates me more than listening to her spew falsities on a Real Housewives of New York reunion -- except maybe when Andy Cohen doesn't call her out on them.

But Pinocchio-esque qualities aside, the woman has a ridiculous body. It's hard to believe those rock hard abs and super-toned legs belong to a 43-year-old mother of two.

But now she's lying about how she got that killer physique.

See, everything comes full circle.

Kelly graced the cover of the latest issue of Shape magazine -- and she looks fantastic. But in the accompanying interview that goes with it, she names horseback riding and "dressing on the side" as the two biggest contributors toward her her sexy bod. Bull. Shiza.

Kelly says, "I ride horses, and gripping the animal with my thighs to stay on is the ultimate lower-body workout." Then she added that the "smartest health change" she's ever made was ordering her "salad dressing on the side." Yeaaahhhsuuuure.

I'm sure that "gripping an animal with your thighs," which, side note, sounds vaguely sexual, and having your dressing on the side are great ways to slash calories, but it's not what's going to transform your body into Kelly Bensimon's. Unless you're currently drinking an entire bottle of Hidden Valley with your romaine.

Kelly then added that she works with a personal trainer. Ahh, now we're getting somewhere. See, having a personal trainer just might give you Kelly Bensimon's body. They'll force you out of bed early, they'll work you to the bone, and they're expensive as all get out. (Also, unrelated, Kelly's personal trainer probably doesn't get her out of bed early -- she probably goes at around 3:00 in the afternoon. What else does she have to do?)

I never understood why celebrities feel the need to lie or play down the things they do in order to look good. If I had the money, I do the same thing. It would have been so refreshing if Kelly was just like, "Look, I'm rich. I work out with a trainer. I have five tiny, macrobiotic meals delivered to my home daily. A dermatologist zaps my cellulite away. And I don't have a damn thing to stress about. You'd look good too if you were me."

But she didn't. She took the classic "Oh, I just do this little ol' thing. Guess I've got good genes! Tee-hee." Can't say I'm surprised, though, 'cause, like I said, she's a liar. Andy, if you're reading this, call her out!

What do you think of Kelly Bensimon?

This doesn't even look like her! Her face is totally airbrushed to the point of no return...

She annoys the crap out of me. She's such a nut case. Some of the crap that comes out of her mouth is just ludicrous!

That belly button makes it look like she's had a good ole' fashioned tummy tuck.

Carrie Humphrey

looks like a tummy tuck to me.

Rachel Schiller

I was thinking tummy tuck, too.

This is so over photoshopped it does not even look like her.

I would also like to add, I hate it when people try to act like they have never had plastic surgery. I owe my body to the gym, genetics, and two plastic surgeries. I do not hide it, why do celebrities?

Nice article except it is not her body or face ha ha. Anyone who has seen photos of Kelly before knows that she has some very prominent bones that stick-out on her chest-area that have been deleted from this cover along-with other changes.
She probably dips her chicken-wings in blue-cheese dressing by the bucket. Kelly's on the Photo-shop diet-no exercise or diet needed.

I can almost believe the riding part.  Have you ever tried to ride English style the correct way.  It really works the leg(heels down all the time) and the only things keeping you on is your balance(core) and you legs, not the stirrups(if you are doing it right). And if she is grooming her own horse and cleaning its stall then yes I can see how owning a horse can help you lose weight.
