Real Housewives of New York City’s Kelly Bensimon lucked out in court on Monday when ex-boyfriend Nicolas Stefanov failed to show up. (for the second time) Bensimon was charged with assault in March for punching Stefanov in the face.
The judge ruled that the charges will be dropped in six to twelve months if the housewife performs two days of community service. However, Kelly reacted as if his ruling validated her innocence of the crime. “The truth has been exposed and the charges against me will be dismissed. It is now time to continue to focus on raising my beautiful girls, pursuing my career, and raising awareness against domestic violence” she said.
Despite being a “housewife,” Bensimon is divorced from photographer Gilles Bensimon. She is probably best known for her never-ending feud with fellow housewife, Betheny, on the show.
