What’s Kelly Bensimon’s secret to staying slim?

The 44-year-old The Real Housewives of New York alum explained it plain and simple: “If you’re gonna eat more, exercise more,” Bensimon told Celebuzz at Jingle Ball in New York. “It’s really common sense.”

But holiday season can make that rule of thumb a bit more tricky.

“I go to these parties and I’m like, ‘Oh, I’ll have a couple of extra cookies,'” she said.

The mother-of-two — and former model, fashion designer, and editor of ELLE accessories who was featured in Celebuzz’s 101 Hot Bodies for her exceptionally sculpted physique — said that the key to getting your butt to the gym is to focus on the benefits.

“I know you don’t want to exercise more, but it actually makes you feel better. So when you do go to the parties, you’re more engaged,” she added.
