Kelly Bensimon wasn't afraid to show Miami what she's got while lounging on the beach yesterday (March 16).

The "Real Housewives of New York City" star, 44, flaunted her abs in a white and blue string bikini as she relaxed in the sun on St. Patrick's Day weekend. For the most part, Bensimon has stayed out of the spotlight since leaving the Bravo reality series after Season 4.

“I wasn’t going into it like it’s my lifelong goal,” Bensimon explained to Avenue about being on the show in the first place. “My legacy isn’t the Housewives. My legacy is the future of my kids.”
