'Real' NYC Housewife's Nude Playboy Spread Confirmed!

USMagazine, Tuesday, January 19, 2010, 11:58am (PST)

Get ready for more -- a lot more! -- of one of the stars of "Real Housewives of New York."

After months of speculation, a rep for Playboy magazine confirms exclusively to UsMagazine.com that Kelly Bensimon will pose in its March issue. Bensimon, 42, "will be featured on the cover and in a 6-page nude pictorial in the March issue," the rep tells Us.

The photographer who shot the star au naturel knows her well: it's her ex-husband Gilles Bensimon, a famed fashion photographer.

Bensimon is the first NYC Housewife to be featured in the magazine, but she's not the first among them to go naked before the cameras. Her castmate Bethenny Frankel posed nude for a PETA billboard unveiled in NYC's Times Square in mid-December.

And, Jeana Tomasino (now Keogh), a castmember from "Real Housewives of the Orange County," was Miss November in 1980.
