Kelly Bensimon could be considered the opposite of a bridezilla.

The Real Housewives of New York City alum, 55, said she is taking a very relaxed approach to her upcoming wedding to fiancé Scott Litner.

“I’m just very laid-back,” she told Parade while appearing at the BravoCon fan fest in Las Vegas over the weekend.

“Even my fiancé is like, ‘When are we getting married?’ And I was like, ‘Oh, I don’t know,'” she continued. “He’s like, ‘People are asking me!'”

While Bensimon admitted that she is “an animal” when it comes to her career, she feels super calm about the wedding planning process. “I’m like, ‘We’ll get to it,’ and [Litner is] like, ‘No, no, no, we need to get to it now!'”

“I’m like, OK, ‘I’m working on it.’ So I’m working on it,” she added.

Litner, a finance executive, popped the question to Bensimon over the Independence Day weekend while they were on vacation in Wisconsin, her rep confirmed to PEOPLE in July. They also celebrated the big event “with a quiet romantic dinner” in Chicago.

“She is over the moon and excited for this new chapter,” her rep said at the time. “They were dating for over a year when he surprised her with a custom designed emerald-cut diamond engagement ring at her favorite childhood vacay destination, Lake Geneva.”

“I never thought I could be so happy,” Bensimon later told E! News about her engagement to Litner, adding that the proposal is the start of her “new beginning.”

“We have a romance that people write novels about,” she said. “I was so moved that he brought me to a special place from my childhood to propose.”

The couple has kept their relationship private since they began dating, though Bensimon has shared photos on Instagram showing off her five-carat diamond ring from New York City jeweler Material Good

She also proudly displayed the sparkler at the July premiere party for Luann and Sonja: Welcome to Crappie Lake, which took place about a week after the proposal.
