06/20/2016 at 01:15 PM ET

The idea of the “nuclear family” is a thing of the past for many parents. These days, the greatest thing about families seems to be that they come in all shapes and sizes.

“I would love to have more kids,” Kelly Killoren Bensimon, known for her appearances on Real Housewives of New York City, said on PEOPLE’s Mom Talk. “I don’t know how that’s gonna be possible — I’m gonna have to [lie] down and not be able to move for nine months.

“But I would love to have as many kids as possible,” adds Killoren Bensimon, 48, who is already mom to two teenage daughters.

Single parent Killoren Bensimon notes that although motherhood isn’t easy and her work life is busy, the experience of having children makes it all worth it.

“I have a crazy schedule. Sometimes I’m filming at 5:00 in the morning, sometimes I don’t get home until 9:00 at night,” says Killoren Bensimon. “But that’s the way that I make money, and my kids have been really great about it.”

She adds, “We don’t have any super nannies at home — it’s just the three of us.”

Luckily for Killoren Bensimon, daughters Sea Louise and Thaddeus Ann have been “amazing” and “incredible” considering their mom’s unorthodox work schedule — and they’re open to more siblings.

“They’re always the ones who are like, ‘If you want to adopt, Mom, we can adopt,’ ” Killoren Bensimon shares. ” ‘If you want to have another baby, you can do that too.’

“My youngest … a month ago, she was like, ‘Mom, seriously, you have to start dating. You talk about having kids, but you have to have a man,’ ” she continues. “So we’ll see what happens.”

Never liked her on the show, she was always such a flake.

Why not just be happy being a grandmother someday?

Why all the articles on this deranged lunatic lately? And I’m pretty sure she gets alot of $ from her much older ex-husband.

Why would she need nannies for teenagers? I’d bet money she had nannies when her kids were young. Quit acting like a self-sacrificing single parent. You have it easy.

She’s horrible, self centered, not at all attractive and has nothing interesting to say. Why in the heck is she even a factor? And what almost 50 year old single woman wants to have “as many kids as possible” without wasting those long months to do it. I guess the rest of us just like to lie down for 9 months (wouldn’t that be nice) and do nothing.

This woman is a nut job. The last thing she needs is to have more children when she’s hitting 50.
