Alex McCord Describes How Simon Van Kempen Came In His Pants When Their Son Was Born

“Once he was finally out of my body, I experienced a tsunami of endorphins that was almost orgasmic, and I understand completely the stories other women have written about ecstatic birth. Simon was sitting behind me at the point of birth, and later when we untangled ourselves he discovered he’d actually ejaculated though hadn’t felt any of the normal lead-up to that. It may seem distasteful to some, and definitely neither of us was thinking of sex at the time, but with the rush of emotion and my lower nerve endings going crazy, it’s not too far a stretch to say that it’s a profound experience.”

Alex McCord, formerly of “The Real Housewives Of New York City,” describes the moment her son François was born — and husband Simon Van Kempen jizzed himself. This quote is from Little Kids, Big City, the book the couple wrote a couple years ago, but somehow this amazing moment didn’t release into the blogosphere, heh, until now. [Jezebel]

Halloween Inspiration Board: Ramona Singer

How to dress like Ramona Singer for Halloween

“The Real Housewives of New York City”‘s Ramona Singer is something of a life inspiration. She’s bold, she’s brash, and she doesn’t let a little thing like cultural insensitivity or completely inappropriateness get in the way of a good time. And that’s a great thing for us, because that makes her all the more entertaining. Ramona, with her crazy eyes and her constant companion, Pinot Grigio, bends for no one. And in Ramona’s world, it’s always “Turtle Time,” whatever the hell that is. Find out what elements you need for your own Ramona Singer Halloween costume, after the jump… Keep reading »

LuAnn De Lesseps Recruits Jill Zarin And Kelly Bensimon For “Chic, C’est La Vie”

 

Everything I need to know I learned from a Countess LuAnn de Lesseps music video. Last year, we were taught that “Money Can’t Buy You Class.” And now in her new video for “Chic, C’est La Vie,” LuAnn has the following lessons to share: (a) saying a few French words makes you all the more fabulous, (b) diamonds are like, really important, and (c) every girl needs her besties—this time she has buddies Jill Zarin and Kelly Bensimon along to help her with the song. But the best part is when LuAnn tries to get philosophical. “Find your dreams within yourself and live with dignity/ Hair done, jewelry on, Oh mirror on the wall/ Beauty, class, and elegance fly within the soul.” Yeah, that almost rhymes.

Real Housewives Channel “Sex And The City 2,” Offend In Morocco

Ramona Singer has not always been shown in the most positive light on “The Real Housewives of New York City.” So you know that if she lobbied producers to pull a scene from the show, it must’ve been really bad. In last night’s episode, the ladies were still on their group vacation in Morocco. which has been filled with drama from beginning to end. But we didn’t see a scene where Ramona “offended an entire country in five seconds,” according to a source. Ramona apparently put on a full burqa and did a dance, while making lewd gestures with a glass of Pinot Grigio. Well, LuAnn does awesomely refer to her strange mood swings “Pinot Polar Behavior.” Keep reading »

Please, No: “Real Housewives” Husband, Simon Van Kempen, Sings “I Am Real”


Is this really happening again? Is another “Real Housewives” star trying to turn their 15 minutes of reality TV fame into a music career? Actually, no. A “Real Housewives”‘ star’s husband is following in the footsteps of Countess LuAnn, Kim Zolciak, and Danielle Staub. Alex McCord‘s hubby, Simon Van Kempen — both from “The Real Housewives of NYC” — has released his first song, “I Am Real.” It is just as Eurotrash as you’d expect from the banana hammock-wearing Aussie. Simon told PopEater that his style is similar to Jarvis Cocker from Pulp, and while I appreciate the reference — love Jarvis — I politely disagree. (Though I do think it establishes him as more of a gay icon than Sonja.) But what do you think? [PopEater] Keep reading »

“Real Housewives Of NYC” Tension All Comes Down To A Hair Color Divide

“It’s just the natural divide, it’s like [the San] Andreas fault. You just can’t guess when it’s going to split.”

LuAnn de Lesseps of “The Real Housewives of NYC,” which began its new season last night, says that the drama this time around comes down to “Team Brunette” (herself, Jill, and newcomer Cindy Barshop) versus “Team Blonde” (Ramona, Sonja, and Alex) with Kelly Bensimon in the middle since, after all, she has ombre hair.

The Premiere Of “The Real Housewives Of NYC” Was, In A Word, Grating

Midway through last night’s premiere of “The Real Housewives of New York City,” I noticed something funny. My heart was beating faster than normal and my breathing was shallow. I felt like I had just had eight cups of coffee back to back, and that the caffeine was surging its way through my body. In other words, I felt really stressed out. Why? Because the show was basically just a compilation of fights between very aggressive, annoying women over very stupid things. Things started with LuAnn De Lesseps grilling Ramona Singer because her husband had, months before, dared to mutter the word “countless” under his breath in her presence and the whole thing was SO UPSETTING. From there, Ramona totally flipped out, oscillating between chihuahua going for the throat bite and Buddhist monk in touch with the pulse of the universe. A few minutes later, Bethenny Frankel went to meet LuAnn for coffee—where LuAnn picked another stupid fight over a comment Bethenny had made last season about paying for LuAnn’s surfing lessons. And that was really just the tip of the fight iceberg. Keep reading »

An Ode To Our Favorite Drunk “Housewives”

Bethenny Frankel had to do the unthinkable—film this season of “The Real Housewives of New York City” sans the sauce because she is pregnant. “Shooting this season without alcohol was a real achievement,” said Bethenny. “It was like being in the desert without water.” I’m a little disappointed that Bethenny will have to put down the Skinny Bitch Margaritas, since her drunken banter with Jill Zarin is my favorite part of the show. But as long as the rest of the ladies are still up to their shenanigans, I’m sure the show will still be excellent. [TresSugar]

In remembrance of the good times, we’ve rounded up some of the best drunken “Housewife” moments, both on and off the screen, from whichever city said good times went down in. Keep reading »
