    Kelly Bensimon brought her lucky daughters to the event.

    FOX411 caught up with ‘Housewives of New York City’ reality star Kelly Killoren Bensimon at the 25 years of Mario Celebration and New Super Mario Bros. Wii game launch at the Nintendo store in NYC.

    While the Orange County ladies are currently front and center, the Big Apple crew is busy filming their third season. After a spate of bad publicity last season for allegedly beating her ex fiancé, Bensimon is relieved to get a reprieve.

    “It’s just obvious in the press that I’m no longer getting hazed and I’m having a great time,” she told Fox411.

    The single mom says she’s glad to get a chance on season three to show America who she really is, “a very enthusiastic person about a lot of things.”


    One thing she’s not enthusiastic about? Discussing rival Bethenny Frankel, who recently announced her first pregnancy. Will Bethenny’s new arrival inspire any of the other “Housewives” to have another child, we asked?

    “Ummmm,” Bensimon hedged, visibly annoyed. “I really can’t comment on that.” But she could say that she “hopes that every woman has a baby if they can.”

    As for adding to her own brood of two, who were in attendance, Kelly says that she definitely wants to get married again, and “would have more children if my husband wanted me to have more children.”

    Bensimon also said she could not “confirm or deny” her reported December ‘Playboy’ shoot, despite saying previously that baring her bod for the mag is “the ultimate compliment and every woman’s dream.”

    So we asked, hypothetically, whose nude shoot would be sexier, 41 year-old Kelly’s or 19 year-old Levi Johnston’s recent ‘Playgirl’ pictorial?

    “Hypothetically. That’s a big word, I’m not really used to using big words like that,” the socialite mused. “If I did pose for ‘Playboy,’ I can’t compete with anyone else. I’m just swimming my own race.”
