Alex McCord of the Real Housewives of New York City
The show must go on. The Real Housewives of New York City's Alex McCord has come on board for the upcoming Real Housewives Live Tour, pinch hitting for Jill Zarin.

"I have a close relationship with Bravo and when they asked me to step in I was happy to accept," the Brooklyn mom of two boys tells UsWeekly. "The audience coming to see The Real Housewives Live Tour want to know about the past and our experience of filming and being a Real Housewife on Bravo TV. With four seasons under my belt, I have plenty to say about that subject!"

The Aluxe Home founder is officially part of the tour's final stop in Atlanta on October 15, where she'll join NeNe Leakes, Melissa Gorga, and Marysol Patton on stage. Prior to that, Caroline Manzo, the Countess LuAnn de Lesseps, Kyle Richards and Vicki Gunvalson kick off the tour this Saturday in Atlantic City, New Jersey. Next, Sonja Morgan, Gretchen Rossi, Phaedra Parks, and Lisa Vanderpump visit with fans in Hammond, Indiana on October 8. Ticket and additional info can be found on the Real Housewives Live Tour page.
