The Real Housewives of New York Kelly Bensimon just keeps bringing on the drama! When she’s not fighting with her co-star Bethenny or slapping her boyfriend, Kelly is being accused of stealing someone else’s owl!
Kelly is allegedly accused of stealing an idea for a jewelry line from a former Elle colleague. Kelly and Celeste Greenberg reportedly made a verbal agreement to design and manufacture owl-themed jewelry and split the profits.
Celeste has filed a lawsuit claiming that Kelly didn’t keep her word and went off and did the designs herself! Kelly currently sells an owl pendant under her own line for $325.
Celeste has refused to comment but Kelly did – being the good press-savvy Housewife that she is – and her rep said, “This girl used to work at Elle accessories with Kelly. Kelly went out of her way to book her for freelance gigs. They went their separate ways. Now she’s coming after her because she needs money and Kelly’s name is in the press. There’s no validity to this. They never had an agreement.” [Source: NYP; Photo: Getty Images]
