‘The Real Housewives of New York’ is Crazy Good TV

The Real Housewives of New York debuts season 4 tonight on Bravo! TV. The ladies put their stilettos in overdrive this week promoting the new season by appearing on The View and showing their individual styles at Covet for the New York City premiere Tues. night.

Sonja Morgan and Countess LuAnn de Lesseps were unable to sit cross legged on the semi-circle couch, but that hardly mattered. The slightly loopy Jill Zarin and random crazy Kelly Bensimon, who came off the worst last season, were on hand to explain –err justify, their craziness.

“It wasn’t really who I am,” said Zarin, who explained that the drama turned up a notch when the cameras were rolling. And apparently, this full proof method stemmed from Zarin’s break-up with former RHONY co-star, Bethenny Frankel.

Bensimon, who had the craziest moment last season, told Viewers, “It’s hard to be portrayed as crazy. It’s hard to come back from that,” and swears she’s far from crazy and that her antics just make for “good TV.”
