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.

I enjoyed the housewives of NY.Alex will be missed and everyone had there own favorite character that they enjoyed watchin.,But I have to agree Alex husband was really into the show I have to say I sometimes wondered about him he seems to be very strange person to me I sometimes wonder if he was ever gay.Not trying to hurt anyones feelins ,but that is the sense that im getting or he is just a very femime male.

These comments are disturbing to me. She was cut for a reason, its because she tried WAY too hard to infiltrate herself in the drama. I think if she stayed true to who she was she would have been great. She also should have explained to her wife/husband that he was not the 7th housewife and he needed to keep is mouth shut and stop picking fights with women. That guy needs some balls and some male attention, because he sure as hell isn't getting it from the camera anymore. Thank you ANDY! The majority of America is so happy that we no longer have to see these pathetic excuses for human beings on television again.

Well, fear not. Alex has her modeling career to fall back on, right?

Yeah, she had plenty to say. Her contribution became vitriolic and shrill. Who cares? Not me!

ALEX WAS SO GREAT and I loved reading her blogs from the show...she's a great commenter!!! You really should have kept ALEX!!!

Bravo, you made a mistake not keeping Alex on the show! Alex is quirky and different in a great way. Alex walked to the beat of a different drum, and it was refreshing. Best wishes, Alex.

YAY! I hope this step leads to your rejoining RHONYC. You are smart and a decent person (not mean!), and it will not be the same without you on the show. (Bravo Andy, would you please rethink the Alex decision; the rest of the cuts were excellent decisions IMO.)

I enjoyed watching New York Housewives....but do not like Alex or Ramona. The Countess is smart and funny and I loved Bethany and Jill. I have enjoyed Bethany's new show, but will not watch Housewives with the Alex & Ramona. They are both real pains.

I agree. I was saddened to hear that Alex was out, but if it meant having Simon in every single scene, it had to happen. I always liked Alex, but Simon was too much a part of everything rather than in the background.

That's nice......glad to hear Bravo hasn't forgotten completely about our Alex.....however!.....it would be nicer if you brought her back to the weekly show......very hard for me, a fan of Alex and Bravo, to continue my fan-ship with Bravo...com'on you guys....it's not too late for casting to do the right thing!
