‘I’m humbled by the outpour of love from my friends, family, and fans. You guys have been here with me through every part of my life: good, bad, and ugly.
‘I know I’m not the easiest friend: I’m stubborn and super protective, but I’m also super sensitive to how you see me. So I’m complicated. But as you all know, I would do anything for anyone of you. And, to my beautiful girls who woke me up with pancakes and my super cute workout clothes.
‘I feel so lucky to have the family I have, and the day I get to spend with them. Today, I’m 52 years old, and I’m proud.’

People also can leave their homes to walk, bike or run as long as they stay six feet away from other residents, the order said.

Kelly came to fame as a model who worked for Elle and Harper’s Bazaar.
In 2009 she was cast on RHONY with Bethenny Frankel and Ramona Singer but left after season four.
After leaving the show she began to write books, one is called The Bikini Book, and she also is one of the editors of Hamptons magazine.

‘I think a lot of women exhaust themselves and they age a lot quicker,’ she went on, adding that she was hitting the gym three times a week at the time.
In 2012, she told The Washingtonian that she was doing a more traditional workout at the gym, citing squats and lunges as her favorite exercises for legs.
‘They just really tone up the inner and outer thighs and lift the buttocks, as well. When your butt muscles are toned, your legs look leaner,’ she said.
As for overall fitness, though, she was favoring running at the time.
‘There are so many great opportunities to work out now. But for me, I’ve always turned to running because it’s super easy,’ she said.
‘It doesn’t cost anything — you just put on your shoes and go. I also spent a lot of time as a swimmer, and swimming is such a good overall workout.’
