Kelly Bensimon is putting her money where her feet are!

Three dollars of every sale from her new line of ballet flats will go towards breast cancer research.

When I caught up with former Real Housewife of New York this weekend, she gave props her to her friend and our own E! News coanchor Guiliana Rancic, who's recovering from surgery after being diagnosed with early-stage breast cancer.

So how's G doing?

"I have spoken to her and I love her so much and we are really good friends," Kelly told me Saturday at Mohegan Sun's 15-year anniversary bash. "I'm just so happy that she was able to be a voice like that. And that's so Giuliana...she's such a strong woman and she wants to be there for other people."

Kelly said she admires how G was able to find the positive side of a scary situation.

"That's my kind of girl," she said. "Adversity happens and she's just like, 'Here I am. Let's help each other.' She's just a rock-solid girl."

Indeed. Just days after her surgery, Giuliana will return to E! News tonight.

We can't wait to see her smiling face back on the small screen!
