What happened in Kelly Bensimon’s past?

Kelly Bensimon, who famously had some sort of breakdown when on a trip with Bethenny Frankel on Season 3 of the Real Housewives of New York, tonight revealed a painful secret that might help explain some of her more bizarre behavior.

When Kelly was talking to LuAnn about how she can’t find a good man because she’s so insecure. LuAnn is smug about her David Schwimmereque wine dealer boyfriend Jacques, but Kelly laments that all the fish in her sea are sharks, bottom feeders, and minnows.

Then Kelly reveals that someone she trusted slapped her in the face, and she may have mentioned an “arrest,” which probably refers to when she, herself, was arrested in 2009 for assaulting a boyfriend. Domestic violence is never acceptable. Hopefully Kelly is able to move on and find herself a great guy.

LuAnn tells her that she deserves better, and they feel closer. Later LuAnn further analysis and Kelly being hurt has caused her to be insecure and not trust people.
