Alex McCord’s husband Simon van Kempen is quite a character on Bravo’s Real Housewives of New York. He’ll be bringing his unique style and persona to the web in a new spin-off for the hit reality show. Fans can expect to see more bizarre outfit choices, remember the kilt and the speedo, but less drama. Keep reading for more on the new show…
Simon will be the first “Housewives” husband to get his own spin-off when the new season of Real Housewives of New York City airs, according to PopEater.
“I’m delighted to get a mini spin-off from ‘Housewives’ and so glad I didn’t have to get pregnant or married to do so!” Simon tells the website, referencing Bethenny Frankel’s spin-off show on Bravo.
Simon says the webcast will focus more on his everyday life not the drama we see on the original show.
“Seriously, Alex, the boys and I have a lot of fun living in Brooklyn, and these webisodes give viewers a chance to see all four of us away from the drama of ‘Housewives,’” he says.
According to PopEater, the new show will have a lot in store for Simon fans. The reality husband star tells the website fans will get to see him “shopping, cooking, accidentally injuring myself and attempting to overcome one of life’s toughest afflictions.”
Simon has been somewhat of a controversial figure on the show with his unconventional fashion sense and constant rumors about his sexuality. The “Housewives” hubby seems to always get involved in the drama one way or another.
From Simon’s comments it seems the web show will have a much more relaxed vibe.
PopEater reports the spin-off doesn’t have a name yet, but is set to stream on BravoTV.com when the fourth season of “The Real Housewives of New York” premieres Feb. 15 on Bravo.
