Kelly Bensimon of RHONY fame says she is ‘denied access’ to the beach in Florida

Kelly Bensimon has been enjoying the picturesque coastline in Palm Beach, Florida this spring.

But there have been some limitations on how close the former Real Housewives Of New York City star can get to the Atlantic Ocean during COVID-19.

The 52-year-old former supermodel revealed on Instagram on Tuesday that she could walk alongside the shore but was ‘denied access’ to the beach as it was shut.

She posted two new images to Instagram. One saw her by the beach which had yellow ‘do not enter’ tape.

‘Access denied,’ was all the brunette said in her caption. 

Kelly was also seen posing among trees as she said she was in a ‘jungle.’ The star had on a triangle top by Morgan Lane and cute shorts made by Melissa Odabash.

The pandemic led to nearly every coastal government in Florida to quarantine beaches.

But some communities are ready to reopen the beaches this week.

The model was last seen on Friday as she walked with her 22-year-old mini me daughter Sea Louise, who she has with her ex-husband, 76-year-old Elle photographer Gilles Bensimon. 

Kelly also has 20-year-old daughter Thadeus Ann, who was not pictured.

The Bravo star had on a white top and matching white short shorts as she added white sneakers.

She held on to her cell phone and a cup of iced tea to go while wearing a thin gold bracelet and gold rimmed Ray-Ban aviator sunglasses.

Her child had on a black bra top that said SAUL in front with a skull and bones and shorts too. She too had on the same sunglasses and added a long necklace.  

She also shared an image on Instagram with the same outfit.

‘Thank you so much for all of the birthday wishes,’ began the star’s caption.

‘I’m humbled by the outpour of love from my friends, family, and fans. You guys have been here with me through every part of my life: good, bad, and ugly. 

‘I know I’m not the easiest friend: I’m stubborn and super protective, but I’m also super sensitive to how you see me. So I’m complicated. But as you all know, I would do anything for anyone of you. And, to my beautiful girls who woke me up with pancakes and my super cute workout clothes. 

‘I feel so lucky to have the family I have, and the day I get to spend with them. Today, I’m 52 years old, and I’m proud.’

The walk took place in Palm Beach, Florida on Friday during the state’s lockdown from the coronavirus.

Kelly came to fame as a model who worked for Elle and Harper’s Bazaar.

In 2009 she was cast on RHONY with Bethenny Frankel and Ramona Singer but left after season four. 

After leaving the show she began to write books, one is called The Bikini Book, and she also is one of the editors of Hamptons magazine. 

She is known for her fit figure and has said it is all thanks to exercise and eating well. 

‘I started going to classes with her and my body started changing,’ she told Us Weekly. ‘By amping up my exercise routine, my body started changing.

‘I think a lot of women exhaust themselves and they age a lot quicker,’ she went on, adding that she was hitting the gym three times a week at the time.

In 2012, she told The Washingtonian that she was doing a more traditional workout at the gym, citing squats and lunges as her favorite exercises for legs.

‘They just really tone up the inner and outer thighs and lift the buttocks, as well. When your butt muscles are toned, your legs look leaner,’ she said.

As for overall fitness, though, she was favoring running at the time.

‘There are so many great opportunities to work out now. But for me, I’ve always turned to running because it’s super easy,’ she said.

‘It doesn’t cost anything — you just put on your shoes and go. I also spent a lot of time as a swimmer, and swimming is such a good overall workout.’
