She may be a 6-foot tall former supermodel, but even Kelly Bensimon has trouble meeting men. The reality star — who’s set to make a return guest appearance on Season 6 of The Real Housewives of New York — opened up to Wetpaint Entertainment about her bad luck in the dating depart at QVC’s annual FFANY “Shoes for Sale” event on October 1.
Considering her good pal, fellow single mom Luann de Lesseps, recently split from longtime boyfriend Jacques Azouley, we asked Kelly if she had any dating advice for her friend.
“Oh no,” Kelly exclaimed. “I am the wrong person to be giving out dating tips! I meet the worst guys on the planet.”
How bad are we talking? “Let’s put it this way,” Kelly said. “If you’re a drug addict or a loser, you’ll fall in love with me.”
Yikes! Well, assuming she could meet the right guy, what attributes is she looking for?
“My perfect guy is really smart and athletic,” she explained. “I like men. I’m 45 years-old and I want a man who’s going to fall in love with me and with my kids.”
“Smart is really attractive to me,” she stressed. “Some women want a funny guy, I want someone smart.”
Yet after splitting with fashion photographer Gilles Bensimon in 2007, Kelly admits another walk down the aisle may not be in the cards for her.
“You know what? A lot of people who get divorced, they don’t get remarried,” Kelly notes. “It just doesn’t work for them.”
