Real Housewife Kelly Bensimon Arrested for Beating Up Boyfriend

The Real Housewives of New York City just got a lot more real.  Kelly Killoren Bensimen was arrested for allegedly assaulting her decade-younger boyfriend Nicholas Stefanov, who called the police last week after Bensimen sucker-punched him during a fight.

In a Rihanna/Chris Brown role reversal, Stefanov claims that
Bensimen has hit him a bunch in the past but, he’s willing “to work it
out” because – alas, he still loves her.  “She’s a great girl,” he
said.  “But what
are you supposed to do when a girl is hitting you, just sit there like
a punching bag?  If I had hit her, I’d be sitting in a jail cell
right now.” Well, at least he knows better.  

But according to the accused, Stefanov is a dirty little liar.  “The
allegations are by a jilted lover saying she struck him during the
course of an argument,” claims Bensimen’s lawyer.  “We deny the
charges, and we are hopeful this will be resolved.”  As for me, I just
hope this dramz makes it’s way into the show – then I might actually be able to watch it.
