I celebrated my birthday this week at JIMMY, the rooftop pool bar at The James Hotel and, boy, does it feel good to be 21… wink!
I slipped into my custom birthday suit (thanks to Moods of Norway) and sipped on spirits poolside with friends, family and even some familiar faces from television, including a stunning in silver Kelly Killoren Bensimon, Albie & Chris Manzo, Dean Sheremet, WWE Diva Alicia Fox, YouTube sensation Jessica Harlow and Keenyah Hill all came by to toast with me, thanks to an open spirits bar featuring ABSOLUT Vodka, Perrier-Jouet champagne, Heineken, Hint Water, and ZICO Coconut Water and bite-sized treats from Baked By Melissa and Treat House New York.

Me and my friend, Kelly Killoren Bensimon, are both judges of the 2012 Miss New York USA pageant, and we wanted to check in with y’all and give you an update from the festivities!
Today (Jan 14), we (along with a few others) judged the swimsuit and gown portion of the pageant, and had to narrow down 150 girls to 20. It was a difficult task, but we truly believe we found 20 really strong candidates who will compete against one another tomorrow at the actual pageant.
Check out our video below:

When she’s not getting dragged into cat fights with her cast mates on “The Real Housewives of NYC,” Kelly Bensimon is shopping, searching and finding the most “fab finds” from the Hamptons to Hollywood, so we asked our celeBFF to share with y’all some of her most favorite fall fashion trends — so that you can get ready for the next season in true fashion!
Alright, Kelly, tell us what’s hot this Fall…
Sky High Heels — In Red: I love Manolo Blahnik, and not because of the reason you think. My dad, when I was 20 years old, bought me my first pair from Neiman Marcus in Palm Springs, Ca. For me, Manolo Blahnik is a rite of passage. I felt like a woman.
Lace: I love lace either vintage or new. Opening Ceremony took my kind of spin on lace and created a see through lace dress. Pair it with a black slip and you are alluring and sweet. Aww.
Purple is the New Neutral: Linea Pelle’s over the shoulder messenger bag sold at Henri Bendels screams Moroccan chic, the origin of hippie chic: rich, effortless, well travelled.
Tight Capris: JCREW is making me fashion crazy with tight capris. With a tee shirt, a tight turtleneck, a lace blouse, or a white button down, JCREW’s ‘Minnie’ capris don’t channel anything but hot,chic, and sexy. Duh!
Color is the New Color. Dolce and Gabbana’s hot pink satin dress leaves nothing to the imagination. Its boxy in shape, and accentuates every movement you make. Fluid, sexy, and eye catching. Make em wonder…
Black Diamonds are a Girls Best Friend: Carlos Souza’s jewelry collection that fuses color, travel, and expensive hard to find beads. Wear black diamonds with a tomas maier bikini, or pair a long beaded strand a la 20s with a drop waist dress.
Rock it Out. Ugg’s new knee high suede clogs take the rocker and mellow her out. She’s not head banging, she’s chair dancing and not missing a beat.
Thanks, KKB! Great tips!
Also, be sure to pick up the latest issue of Shape magazine (featuring covergirl Kelly) where she compares her body to a Ferrari (we couldn’t agree more!) and follow her on Twitter @KellyBensimon!
Usually its the kids doing the “walk of shame,” but on Thursday night (July 27), celebrity moms such as Denise Richards and Bravo-lebrities Kelly Killoren Bensimon and Teresa Giudice were doing the deed.
But there weren’t just “hot mama’s” in the house… Pete Wentz was manning the 1′s and 2′s, while former “Jersey Shore” star Angelina Pivarnik danced around in a little black dress.
Sitting just one table apart, Rob Kardashian and ex-girlfriend Adrienne Bailon avoided talking to each other as long as they could until Rob’s friend broke the ice… The two were overheard going back and forth about why they were giving each other the silent treatment. Rob’s answer? He didn’t want to “get clowned!” Adrienne’s reply? “Shut up, I have your name tattooed on my ***!”
Oh, what a night, indeed! Wonder which of these stars actually did the “walk of shame” this morning…
