Olbermann and a “Real Housewife of New York City” : Two peas in a pod

This is almost too good to be true. I’ll just post an excerpt from an entertainment column from Fox News online, detailing some of the boorish behavior of the Real Housewives. Some things, however, are beond the pale:

Meanwhile, Zarin mouthy co-star Kelly Killoren Bensimon, who’s celebrating her 41st birthday at The Gates tonight, continues to push buttons. In addition to squabbling with Bethenny Frankel and talking about her modeling career, Bensimon is often heard touting her Ivy League education, from Columbia University.

But a source who attended Columbia snarked, “Kelly went to the Columbia extension college. Anyone can go there.”

Bensimon’s rep said, “Kelly went to Columbia University School of General Studies and graduated in 1998.”

The General Studies program, according to its Web site, is “created specifically for returning and nontraditional students.”

Maybe she can go on the next episode, flash her framed diploma, and explain that the only reason she went there was to save money. Just like Olbermann.

Keep the faith, honey. There are many like you, one of whom has a pretty important position at the newest Government Sponsored Entity.
