Kelly Bensimon is still feeling the effects of getting axed from Bravo’s hit reality show, The Real Housewives of New York. The cast shakeup sent her, Jill Zarin, Alex McCord and Cindy Barshop packing, but Kelly is not letting it bring her down. Actually, she recently told Celebuzz she would not be opposed to doing another reality show.

“I love reality TV. It has been a really good platform for me, and I’ve had so much fun. Whatever comes my way, I’m going to keep enjoying it. Housewives was a great opportunity because now I know what I don’t want,” she told us.

So would she ever consider looking for love on reality TV?

“Being on Housewives was a blessing and a curse – especially for my dating life. A lot of people wouldn’t take me seriously, and I don’t blame them. Seriously, what awesome guy wants to be reprimanded by women they don’t even know? That was the not-so-hot part of reality TV,” she laments. “I would love to get married to someone that is a partner and is in it with me and not for the publicity.”

While she’s still dating and looking for Mr. Right, she has plenty of post-Housewives plans, revealing she wants to have more children.

“My dating life is fun. I’m having a good time and hopefully I’ll meet the man of my dreams and have a little baby boy! That is on my bucket list. I want to have another baby.”

In the meantime, Kelly is working on her new book, I Can Make You Hot, which comes out in Spring 2012. It won’t have any Housewives gossip though – instead the book focuses on her past mistakes and the positive things she’s learned from each experience.

“It’s been really fun writing about all these mistakes I’ve made over the years. Everyone thinks they should write about how great they are, and I always think it’s more charming to learn about all the mistakes that I made and maybe you can learn from them, too,” she said, adding she’s made so many mistakes that even the edited version is over 300 pages.
