Just last week Bravo shook up the cast of The Real Housewives Of New York City by announcing they will be replacing four of the women for season five. Alex McCord was one of the ladies to receive a pink slip from Bravo. Well Alex might not be appearing on season five, but she has been asked to replace Jill Zarin at the Atlanta Housewives tour event. Keep reading for all the details.
Alex and her husband, Simon, have been trying to meet with Bravo executives in a last ditch effort to keep themselves on the show. The couple was very upset to lose the $275,000 income they were earning from the show. Plus, the couple wanted to use the show as a platform to sell their new line of sheets and towels. A source told E! News, “Bravo doesn’t want to cut the relationship, Alex and Simon are nice people, but as for the show they are done.”
Well it looks like all their begging has paid off. Alex will replace Jill at the Atlanta Housewives event in Atlanta on October 15. It seems that after being fired from the show, Zarin also wanted out of the tour. Alex was very happy to replace Jill telling US Weekly, “I have a close relationship with Bravo and when they asked me to step in I was happy to accept.”
Something tells me we this won’t be the last time we hear from Simon and Alex. What do you think about this interesting couple? Will you be buying their line of Egyptian sheets? Let us know what you think, comment below!
