11. Kelly Bensimon, Real Housewives of New York City (Bravo)
Is there any Real Housewife more memorable than Kelly Bensimon? She’s not exactly known for her wit, and feuded with several other cast members, most notably Bethenny Frankel: “I’m up here, and you’re down here,” she screamed at the future talk show host.
We realize there are lots of crazies willing to embarrass themselves in the Real Housewives stable, but where else would we get gems like this: “Why do we have to be all flowers and lollipops. Why can't it be like fighting but we are actually learning. That's called back-door education.” Yes, Kelly, reality TV is about learning. Bensimon’s latest project is getting her MBA—we suggest a show about that. Learning and fighting!
