Weeks after Kelly Bensimon’s nervous breakdown, er, "nervous breakthrough," the reality star who spoke out against "systematic bullying" is still taking on her biggest, bejeweled nemesis on the The Real Housewives of New York City reunion special, which airs Thursday night.

In a sneak peak of the episode, Bensimon repeats her claim that Bethenny Frankel is a “media whore,” saying that Frankel planted information about her and her family in the press. “There are that do things with malicious intent,” Bensimon says on the show. “I don t like it. It s not my choice.”

And, no surprise here, Frankel plays defense.

“I haven’t said one thing about you this entire season,” she says, asking Bensimon to “think logically.” Alex McCord pipes up, too, saying that she never read anything about Bensimon s family in the press. Frankel then flips her claim back at her, saying that Bensimon is the one blabbing to the media.

One big surprise: Jill Zarin, who sits poised and attentive in a little black dress, lets Bensimon and Frankel do most of the talking.

At least the ladies agree on one thing – they are all over “it” – whatever “it” is. (The drama? The media attention? Their friendships?) Perhaps they’ll answer that Thursday night. Find out when the first part of the reunion special airs (9 p.m. EST). –Alison Schwartz
