$50G of stolen jewelry taken from ex-'Real Housewives' star Kelly Bensimon

Former 'Real Housewives of New York City' star Kelly Bensimon sounds off on the 'Duck Dynasty' gay comments controversy and how much 'reality' networks expect from their reality shows

 

Kelly Bensimon is desperately searching for her stolen jewels.

She reached out to Page Six in a panic after $50,000 worth of jewelry was stolen from her while she was on a work trip on Martha’s Vineyard last weekend.

“It’s all Hermès, Rolex and Cartier. I’m so upset,” the former “Real Housewife” wrote.

Bensimon told Page Six she was on the island to discuss fintech startup opportunities with an investor. Her jewelry was in her Black Dog tote bag and was stolen from the investor’s Cadillac Escalade. The bag contained “Hermès bracelets to Cartier tricolor gold bangles to my incredible Daytona watch and Mauboussin diamond ring.”

Bensimon says all of the items are irreplaceable and sentimental.

“It’s devastating. As a single mom, who was on a work trip, it’s particularly upsetting. I was saving these for my girls,” she said.

Bensimon also posted about the theft on her Facebook account. She has contacted the Edgartown, Mass., police and is offering a reward to anyone who returns her jewelry and bag.
