Alex McCord & Simon Van Kempen (wearing a non-gay high school band uniform jacket).
Last night, I finally watched Bravo TV's latest "Housewives" show, The Real Housewives of New York City. I dunno, I'm not as interested in this lot as much as I was with the OC Housewives....and that's not saying much. These NYC ladies just bore me. However, there is one HW that does interest me (a little) and that's Alex McCord. Alex married her Gay Best Friend, Simon Van Kempen. These two lovebirds are inseparable. They are each other's stylist & don't dare go shopping alone. I just love how Alex brings her GBF, I mean husband, along to a "girls night out" party (much to her friend's chagrin).
But life isn't all about shopping with your gay husband or partying in the French West Indies. Alex is a graphic designer & has two children (that are being raised by their live-in Au Pair) . Alex is a former model....check out the pic below for proof of that!
ps: I'd like to give a shout out to the only "housewife" on the show that is actually likable: LuAnn de Lesseps, who is a Countess. Her husband, Alexandre Count de Lesseps, is a French aristocrat. His family gave the U.S. the Statue of Liberty way back when...Can you smell the (old) money? I can, and I want to be her GBF!
