Kelly Bensimon Finally Unloads Her Hamptons Mansion for $5.7 Million

Former Real Housewives of New York star Kelly Bensimon has finally sold that pesky mansion of hers in the Hamptons.

Kelly’s been trying to sell the swanky five bedroom, five bath estate for a while now and majorly slashed the price of the place in October (from $12 million to $5.5 mil, a whopping $6.5 million drop!).

She declared then that she’s a “working single mother” and just “can’t afford the lifestyle” anymore now that she’s divorced from French fashion photographer Gilles Bensimon, and her money woes became more believable that same month when she started making her own clothes.

According to the NY Daily News, though, Kelly can breathe easier now because not only did she sell the place, she got a touch more than the asking price.

The 5,800 square foot, 1.5 acre pad reportedly went for a cool $5.76 million, and the deal was sealed with closing last week.

Congrats to Kelly for make her much-awaited sale at long last.
