Alex McCord is no longer part of the Real Housewives of New York cast, and she and husband Simon van Kempen are shopping around a new reality show, tentatively titled “Brownstone Brooklyn”. Reportedly the show is about 30-something parents in Brooklyn.
- Western New York fans of the Real Housewives of New York can watch repeats on DirecTV channel 237. The fifth season of the Bravo hit is currently filming.
Page Six reports that McCord, 37, hasn’t had nice things to say about Bravo or the Real Housewives of New York, sending out an email to friends saying Bravo is a “train wreck” and the show is a “faux reality show.”
According to the New York Post, the email reads:
“While we were sad to lose the dollars, we weren’t sad to be off that particular show. We would never expose ourselves to another faux reality show.”
Asked by The Post if she’d sell her proposed new program to Bravo, McCord was flustered:
“I don’t know, I hadn’t, that doesn’t mean I wouldn’t, it’s not just me either if we did this it would be Simon and me together.”
McCord and van Kempen may be lashing out at Bravo now, but it seems they had fostered a positive relationship after their Housewives dismissal. The couple told Us Weekly in September 2011:
“After four seasons on Real Housewives of New York City, Simon and I are moving on. It’s a completely friendly departure and while it was their decision and not ours, we are in close communication with both Bravo and the production company about our next move, in addition to fielding outside offers.”
In addition to shopping around their reality show project, McCord and van Kempen have started Aluxe Home, which manufactures luxury bath and bedding products.
