Real Housewife Kelly to Get Real Naked in Playboy

Looks like breastfeeding won't be the only breast-related conversation during the next season of The Real Housewives of New York City. Kelly Bensimon will be showing off her assets in the December issue of Playboy.

Well, some of her assets.

Word has it the magazine shoot has already taken place: Kelly's ex-husband, fashion photographer Gilles Bensimon, took the pictures a few years ago. Just how much skin Kelly will be showing in the magazine remains to be seen. A source told InTouch Weekly that 40-year-old Bensimon said the pictures are "sexy," but "they won't set the world on fire." (InTouch referred to the photos as "semi-nude.")

True to character, Kelly's definitely not shy about discussing the Playboy shoot on the show.

"Kelly is telling everyone that she might be on the cover," the Real Housewives insider said.

In addition to her "work" for Playboy, Bensimon has been working on selling her new line of jewelry. The bohemian pieces are being sold via boutiques in The Hamptons, New York City and Los Angeles. While Kelly doesn't do the actual hands-on labor of putting the jewelry together, she told New York magazine she is very involved in the making of the baubles.

"I like to be in the trenches, I like to be a part of it — I'm not just going to throw my name on something and say it's mine, because that's not how I operate," Bensimon said. "I'm not going to say I'm sitting here, you know, with my like little pliers, but I can! I can make you anything you want if you have a second!"
