Kelly Killoren Bensimon of the Bravo reality show the Real Housewives of NYC is having a rough spring. First, she gets arrested for beating up her boyfriend, giving him a black eye and a split cheek. Then she loses her modeling job with Saks, and is suddenly desperate to sell her house in the Hamptons. And now she’s being sued over an owl.
According to sources, Bensimon is being sued by a friend and former Elle magazine c0-worker over an owl pendant that they were supposed to produce together and split the profits.
Celeste Greenberg says that she and the reality show star had an oral agreement to work together on the owl project, but Ms. Bensimon took the idea and used it for her own jewelry line instead.
According to Page Six, Bensimon’s rep says that Greenberg’s accusations are without merit:
“This girl used to work at Elle Accessories with Kelly. Kelly went out of her way to book her for freelance gigs. They went their separate ways. Now she’s coming after her because she needs money and Kelly’s name is in the press. There’s no validity to this. They never had an agreement about anything.”
