Kelly Bensimon admits that Kim Kardashian's engagement to Kris Humphries make her turn green with envy.

"Just the other day we hear that Kim Kardashian is engaged," the "Real Housewives of New York" fembot tells People.com. "She is so unbelievable and I have so much respect for her. And to be honest with you I'm not that jealous of many people -- I'm just not a jealous person -- but the fact that she's so happy and engaged and found true love, I'm jealous. I am."

Bensimon adds: "I'm just so happy for her ... She's wanted it, and that's just so exciting for her."

We hear you, Kelly. One glance at Kardashian's insane 20.5 carat ring, and it's hard not to feel a slight twinge of "Me want!" But Bensimon is wealthy, and she most likely has similar baubles in her walk-in jewelry treasure chest or whatever. Meanwhile, this confession from the loopy, robotically nice reality star offers proof that she in fact has real human feelings: when a friend unexpectedly finds love (and by association, happiness), it's natural to feel torn being genuinely excited for them and secretly envious. Or maybe some people are impervious to the j-word! We're jealous of those people.
