Kelly Bensimon Is in Love! But Who’s the Lucky Guy?

“You know you are in love, when you love to breathe their air.” Nope, that’s not the musings of a poet laureate, it’s the one and only Kelly Killoren Bensimon. Last we checked, the Real Housewives of New York alum was a single lady, but it appears she might have snagged herself the one!

On January 27, Kelly first clued her Twitter followers into the fact that she might have a new boyfriend with the following tweet: “You know you're in love when you can't fall asleep because reality is finally better… - Dr. Seuss.” Aww! Who knew that a children’s author could be so prolific when it comes to the ways of the adult heart?

One day later, on January 28, she hinted at it again writing, “So this is love. So this is what makes life divine. ~ Cinderella.”

We did a little scouring and were unable to turn up anything about who the new boyfriend might be. It is clear that Kelly’s been keeping busy, hitting up a plethora of Super Bowl and NYFW social events throughout NYC, but by all accounts she’s spending most of her time with her girlfriends.

Last fall, Wetpaint spoke exclusively with the former reality star, who was bemoaning the difficulties of finding a good man in the city. “I meet the worst guys on the planet,” Kelly admitted at the time. “Let’s put it this way, if you’re a drug addict or a loser, you’ll fall in love with me.” Woof!

She did say that her criteria for the perfect man would be somebody “really smart and athletic” with sense of humor. Oh, and he’d have to be cool with her built-in family. “I’m 45 years-old and I want a man who’s going to fall in love with me and with my kids.”

Hopefully this new guy meets all of the criteria. Congrats Kelly, you deserve it!
