The Real Housewives of New York City: Alex McCord Unleashed!

April 11, 2011 04:00 PM by Shayla Perry

Season 3 of The Real Housewives of New York City may have been all about the “renewed” Ramona Singer, but season 4 of the Bravo reality show focuses on another transformation – Alex McCord’s – and she is UNLEASHED!

If you watched the season premiere of The Real Housewives of New York City, you probably noticed the new cast member. No, not Cindy Barshop! We’re talking about the new (and improved?) Alex McCord!

After three seasons of keeping her opinions to herself, McCord says that she’s finally letting it all out for season 4 of Housewives, and there’s no holding back.

“I have finally had it up to here,” Alex McCord told HollywoodLife.com at last week’s Real Housewives of New York City premiere party. “I have a very long fuse, and when it blows – it blows.”

One person who’s grown quite fond of the Alex’s transformation — Ramona Singer.

“First season she was a quiet mouse. Now she has a voice,” explained Singer. “And you know what, she comes to my defense a number of times on the show. She’s become a good friend. … I think she’s real and does things unpretentiously. She’s a very genuine person.”

Ramona Singer may be a fan, but cast mate Kelly Bensimon has a different opinion, telling the website, “I love Alex. I think she’s a really sweet girl. But I think one of her biggest issues is that she’s outspoken about the wrong issues ,” adding, “sometimes less is more.”

Though her Real Housewives cast mates seem to agree that she’s changed a lot in season 4, Alex McCord says that she’s really the same person she’s always been.

“The biggest difference in the metamorphosis is that I’m actually just saying what I was thinking all along,” said McCord. “If you don’t say what you are thinking, people will make up all sorts of things that they think you’re thinking and it’s never real.”

    TALK ABOUT ALEX’S NEWLY FOUND ‘VOICE’? IT SEEMS THAT IT COINCIDES WITH LIQUOR. EVERY TIME I’VE SEEN HER, SHE HAS A GLASS OF WINE IN HER HAND AND EVEN CALLS SIMON TO ‘CHILL’ SOMETHING BECAUSE SHE NEEDS IT. DO I SEE A.A. IN A FUTURE SEGMENT?! I DON’T KNOW WHAT I MISSED, BUT I LIKED THE OLD ALEX. SHE WAS CLASSY AND NEVER SPOKE EVIL OF ANYONE… A LITTLE GOES A LONG WAY, ALEX.

    BTW, I’M NOT SCREAMING (AS CAPITAL LETTERS TEND TO IMPLY WITH COMPUTERS); I AM LEGALLY (AND NEARLY TOTALLY) BLIND.

    Lol. True — there is a lot of footage of Alex drinking, and we’re only a few episodes in! I agree… so many people are praising the “new” more outspoken Alex, but I find her just annoying this season. She’s essentially just taking part in all the cattiness and antics that she used to condemn.
