Washington: ‘Real Housewives of New York’ star Kelly Bensimon has revealed why she has stripped for Playboy.

According to the 43-year-old mother of two, she bared it all for the magazine because she wanted to teach her daughters and others about a good body image, and also wanted to get sweet revenge on her mean costars.

“I showed like 80 percent. A little boobie, a little butt, ankles. The pictures actually make me look thinner than I was at the time. I really ate a lot. I wanted to be my normal body shape. I wanted to look like myself,” the Fox News quoted Bensimon as telling Popeater.com.

“I think some people were wondering… I have two kids, isn’t that bad? But I think no; I want my kids to be happy and healthy and later on in their lives, be sexy and have fun. I don’t want them to think that having an eating disorder is cool, because it’s not!” she said.

Bensimon also said that the other women were probably shocked by it because they had allegedly been trying to bring her down.
