BRAVO Makes It Official: Alex McCord Is Leaving The Real Housewives of New York City
Alex said when she found out if she was going to be on the 5th Season of The Real Housewives of New York City, or not, she'd let her fans know, when she knew.
Alex stayed true to her word, which seems to be her basic nature. Earlier today Alex Tweeted:
Nothing was decided until today, but as of tonight a decision has been reached. @SimonvanKempen & I are leaving #RHONY, sadly but amicably.
A fan set up a Facebook page titled Alex McCord MUST STAY on RHONYC! where you can verbalize to BRAVO what you think about their decision. You may have to log into Facebook to view the page. Or create a Facebook account. Which in my humble opinion really is not worth the bother.
BRAVO has also made it official that fan unfavorites Jill Zarin, Kelly Bensimon and Cindy Barshop have also gotten the boot.
Methinks BRAVO must be perfectly aware that booting Alex is not going to get the good reaction that booting Jill, Kelly and Cindy will get. So BRAVO tosses the Shrill Jill and Clueless Kelly the bone of also firing Alex, knowing that BRAVO will later succumb to fan pressure and re-install Alex on the show.
I'm sure that is what will happen. But, having said that, I must admit, I am seldom right about such things.
