Kelly Bensimon: Crossing Guard Mother (PHOTO)

She may have been fired from her "Real Housewives of New York" gig, but it looks like Kelly Bensimon has already got an new -- arguably much more important -- job. Bensimon is Crossing Guard Mother at her daughter's New York City school.

It looks like Bensimon has turned a new leaf. On "Housewives" she was often accused of playing the victim but now she's stepping up, playing protector.

We think this is a good look for the ex-housewife!
