NEW YORK – Kelly Bensimon appeared on "The Real Housewives of New York City" from season 2 through 4.
Now on its eighth season, FOX411 caught up with the former Bravo star to ask her if she would consider returning to the reality show.
"Everyone always asks me if I would do it again and I never say no just because I always tell my kids never say never because you don’t want to, you know, put yourself out of the game," she told us at Steven Tyler's concert event benefitting his charity Janie's Fund.
"I just would have to expect more from the producers, I would want them to want their talent to be genuine and authentic."
She added that she wasn't comfortable sharing a lot of details about her life on television.
"I won’t share my life with people that I don’t know and that I don’t trust… and that’s why I didn’t show my life. I was just like ok I’ll hang out with these girls and I’m going to go home.
"[I] rarely did things with my kids, rarely did anything that was personal, rarely dated, like I went on one date, and I did that for a reason because...I didn’t feel like it was the right environment."
These days Bensimon's focus is on her new novel out next month called "A Dangerous Age" which she describes as "Sex and the City meets "Housewives."
"[It's] all about the publishing world, the art world, television world, modeling world, everything that I know a lot about...it’s jam-packed and a very, very, very sexy book. Very sexy."
