Kelly Bensimon Cuts Home Price in Half: “I Can’t Afford the Lifestyle Anymore”

Former Real Housewives of New York star Kelly Bensimon is really trying to get her 5,800 square foot home in the Hamptons off her hands.

While the luxe five bedroom, five bathroom pad was originally listed for $12 million, her asking price has since dropped down to $5.5 million, according to Long Island News Day.

The divorced mother of two daughters – Sea Louise and Thadeus Ann – claims that she is a “working single mother” and just “can’t afford the lifestyle” she could during her marriage to French fashion photographer Gilles Bensimon.

Kelly’s primary residence these days is in Manhattan but she said that she considers Long Island home and hopes to acquire another property in the Hamptons someday.

Her realtor Enzo Morabito declares that the reduced listing for the 1.2 acre property is “absolutely now a sellable price.”

The Real Housewives of New York airs Mondays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Bravo.
