A Look Back at 'Real Housewives of NYC': What is 'Planet Kelly'?

Let's face it, this season of 'Real Housewives of New York City' was as nutty and down right bananas as a handful of trail mix.

Besides the epic fight between Jill Zarin and former-BFF Bethenny Frankel, the real star of the show was Kelly Killoren Bensimon's bizarre antics.

You probably heard of the systematic bullying she claims happened and the public service announcement she made via YouTube in response. So, what is life like on "Planet Kelly"? Let's take a look back at some 'Real Housewives of New York City' moments and ponder that question.

It all started here, on Scary Island. Sonja, Bethenny, Alex and Kelly joined Ramona in St. Johns for a girls getaway in honor of Ramona's upcoming vow renewal. According to the ladies, Kelly just got really loopy. Here she and Bethenny verbally spar over many things, like the fact that Kelly thinks Bethenny is a cook, not a chef. Bethenny's been to culinary school, Kelly. Check your facts! On Planet Kelly, if you've never heard of somebody being a chef, they're not a chef, just a cook.

Next up we have a part from the very EPIC reunion. The ladies filmed between 8-9 hours of footage and Bravo aired three hours of it. Imagine how much catty was left on the cutting room floor?

Below, Kelly tackles her systematic bullies head on. How do the ladies react to Kelly's accusations? Bethenny's holler sums it up best: "Kelly, you have psychological and emotional problems!" Yup.

Here we are, back on Scary Island. This clip came from the "lost footage" from the series.

Ramona has a run-in with Kelly in the exercise room. Kelly's word vomit starts up, but this time she starts explaining Planet Kelly in earnest. A whole planet of gorgeous beaches and tanned bodies? Doesn't sound that bad, it probably rains jelly beans and the rivers are rainbows. But, Kelly probably rules her planet with a tanned fist of might, making up accusations and her words have no repercussions.

Should we embrace Planet Kelly with the lollipops, rainbows and unicorns?
Yes, I'm tired of living in Hades with bullies and cooks.12 (4.5%)
No, way too many jelly beans for me.252 (95.5%)

She looks like Peppermint Patty all grown up.

I think maybe Kelly's beanbag brain has burst and the poor little picked-on fruitcake is in an early senility stage. Everyone knows she's nuts except her.
