    Kelly Bensimon Sizzles for ‘Shape’ & Boasts “My Body Is Like a Ferrari”

    August 16th, 2011 11:17 am / Author: Brittany Talarico



    Kelly Bensimon sizzles on the September cover of Shape magazine, showing off her toned tummy and overall kickin’ body. It’s certainly hard to believe The Real Housewives of New York City star is a 43-year-old mom of two! Kelly not only shares her workout routine with Shape, but also addressed a bunch of pressing rumors about herself!
    Kelly may have had a bit of a breakdown during the RHONY ladies’ trip to St. John last season, but she maintains that she is someone who is not afraid to show emotion, nor will she let gossip hounds and haters bring her down. So no more rumors that she is “crazy”!
    The reality star also debunks rumors that she is less than intelligent.
    “I find it hilarious when someone says I’m not smart,” Kelly, who has a degree in literature and creative writing from Columbia University, tells Shape. “I’ve written three books, including American Style, a review of U.S. fashion, which is a textbook in some schools.” Her fourth book, a fitness and lifestyle guide, will be published next year. “The premise is that you can be healthy, happy, and hot,” says Kelly. Looking at this beautiful, bubbly woman, it’s clear she knows what she’s talking about.
    And how about the buzz that Kelly experiments with drugs?
    “Everyone always asks me why I wasn’t on the cocaine and vodka diet when I was a model,” she says. “I was going to college and couldn’t be bombed out of my mind.”
    And today, Kelly stays true to her health and fitness philosophy.
    “My body is like a Ferrari,” says Kelly. “I know what it needs to run well — and that doesn’t include drugs, alcohol, or cigarettes.”

    Absolutely, the Shape pic doesn't look a thing like her, face-wise or body-wise. Photoshopped to death

    It looks like they put her photoshopped face on someone else's hair/body...

    Shape is always photoshopping people, but I don't think the difference is mostly due to Photoshop . The outdoor shot has got VERY strong overhead light hitting her. That's going to emphasize every contour/wrinkle on someone's body.

    I actually don't know what she looks like normally, so Googled her. These photos below give me a pretty good sense of how much Photoshopping was going on. They clearly used photoshop to narrow her waistline, smooth out her skin tone, and soften the overall focus. The face looks like a different person. I noticed that they cropped her legs at the top of the thighs - probably thought handling that was too much work.

    True the candid is in a harsher light, but she actually does have a freakish body. There are many, many bikini pictures out there showing this. Do you see that dent on her chest, just under the bikini strap? That's always there in every candid picture. Not to mention her wonky implants. Her skin texture is similar to beef jerky. The only thing Kelly Bensimon's actual body has in common with the SHAPE cover is that they both have arms, legs and her head. Everything else is photoshopped to make her look normal.

    The fact that it's a fitness magazine doing the heavy photoshopping bothers me because she's talking her diet and fitness routine. That isn't her body though. She does not look like that at all. I can handle a little photoshopping to take out wrinkles etc. but not to overhaul her entire body when she's on there to talk about her healthy lifestyle.

    Probably should put this in the pet peeves.

    “My body is like a Ferrari,” says Kelly.
    . . . on blocks.

    No one could photoshop this broad more than she photoshops herself in her head.

    So disappointed in Shape. I watch the show and she looks bad in any light. Her skin is fried, she is lumpy. Nice job Shape
    My grace is sufficient for you, for my my strength is made perfect in weakness...I love you dad!

    The Photoshop Awards: Kelly Bensimon On Shape Magazine

    If the Mayans are right and 2012 is the year of We're Fucked, then that means 2011 is the year of Fuck It which makes sense when you look at this cover of The Real Housewives of NYC's Kelly Benismon on September's Shape Magazine. Yes, THAT Kelly Bensimon. The Kelly Bensimon who really looks like a water-damaged leather duffel bag handle with tits that are slowly starting to migrate to her back so that they can slide down and escape out of her asshole. Shape Magazine didn't even try to make that ho on the cover look like Kelly Bensimon. Bitches used the hell out of the Honey Badger tool on Photoshop!

    You know, I take it back. This isn't the work of Photoshop. This is the work of copy + Elmer's. The body, the face, the earrings and the hair are all strangers to each other and were forced together in a nightmare land. This is basically the Breakfast Club of magazine covers. I've seen badly cut out paper dolls that look more human than this.

    And Kelly told Shape (via Radar) that despite the rumors that the bad shit has eaten the sanity out of her brains, she's completely drug-free:

    “My body is like a Ferrari. I know what it needs to run well — and that doesn’t include drugs, alcohol, or cigarettes.”

    A Ferrari? HO STOP. More like the torn out leather seat of a broken Ferrari that has been left out in the middle of a junkyard for the pit bulls to chew at.
