  • Ramona Singer says Kelly Bensimon not setting good example for girls with Playboy spread


    “Real Housewives of New York City” star Ramona Singer is gearing up for the March 4 premiere of her Bravo reality show as she celebrates the one-year anniversary of her HSN jewelry line.

    The blonde businesswoman talked to FOX411 about her business endeavors, and about the ‘Housewife’ who just posed for Playboy.

    Castmate Kelly Killoren Bensimon is gracing the March cover of Playboy magazine just as the popular series resumes.

    SLIDESHOW: Celebrities Who Have Posed for ‘Playboy.’

    Nice timing.

    Singer had a lot to say about Bensimon’s decision to pose in the buff.

    “I have a daughter and I think it sends the wrong message,” says Ramona of Kelly’s nude spread. “We all have beautiful bodies but I want my daughter to use her mind and personality.”

    And it sounds like Singer thinks Bensimon is part girl/part woman herself.

    “Kelly has the mentality of a six-year-old girl in a 40-year-old’s body,” she told Fox411. “You just have to relate to her that way.”

    Ramona said she’d never pose naked, but not for lack of self esteem. “I have a phenomenal body,” she said, adding, “I feel sexy wearing my jewelry.”

    And her costume jewelry line Ramona Singer Jewelry for HSN is obviously her focus.

    “I’m in love with all these pieces, I swear to you,” she enthuses. “For instance right now, it looks like I’m wearing $10k worth of jewelry but it all costs about $600.”

    Who would she choose to wear her jewelry, if she could have any celebrity sport her baubles?

    “Jennifer Garner,” Singer said. “Because she needs to update her look a little with jewelry. She’s a mom who goes from day to night. My jewelry looks like it’s from Madison Avenue, and she could wear it to lunch with girlfriends and then to the red carpet.”

    Singer certainly knows a thing or two about working the red carpet, and will no doubt be seen doing so with her fellow “Housewives” this season.

    “It’s going to be absolutely riveting,” she said.

    She reveals we’ll see a “whole new personality” from Alex McCord and that “Jill implodes and Kelly explodes.”
