Kelly Bensimon encourages women to show off their curves!

Real Housewives of New York City star Kelly Bensimon is going to bat for curvy chica's in the latest issue of Shape Magazine. The 43-year-old stepped out with co-star Jill Zarin to celebrate the feature at R Lounge at the Renaissance Times Square Hotel on Wednesday, August 24th, 2011 in New York City, New York.

I had the pleasure to meet Kelly during a
special Spiegal event in South Beach earlier this year and I can assure you that the chatter across the net about her cover being photoshopped to death on the cover is not true. She arrived to the Swim party in a bathing suit and the reality star was super fit!

The September issue features the reality star in an all white bikini, giving me the notion that she might have ambitions of becoming a Bond girl in the future!

By the way, the cover was shot by Kelly's ex-husband (and famous French fashion photographer) Gilles Bensimon because "he loves me so much and wants me to be a better version of me, which is very, very cool."

In the magazine, the single mom shares the formula she follows to keep her body running right.

“My body is like a Ferrari,” says Kelly. “I know what it needs to run well—and that doesn’t include drugs, alcohol, or cigarettes.”

As far as exercise is concerned she runs, takes group-cycling classes, goes horseback riding and does strength exercises with Nick Oram, a personal trainer in New York City.

But Bensimon isn't here to preach to people about being paper thin. She says you have to show off what you got!

It’s not like I’m über thin. It’s not like I’m not eating. I eat well. I exercise a lot and I promote healthy living.”

She added, “I don’t want people to be skinny. I want them to be happy and healthy and smoking hot. If you have curves show them off, and if you don’t have curves work out so you can get them.”
