OK, how has the term ho-bag crawled across every Housewives franchise this spring? Seriously, I think Andy Cohen needs to add a "ho-bag of the week" award for the housewife that goes the craziest each week. Maybe we should have runners-up too?
So first Jacqueline leads the witness a bit when asking her little boy whether he likes to see her fight with Ashley. Mommy wants you to answer no, so answer no. Of course she's also correct – fighting in front of the little guy is something he’ll remember.
Now it's onto Danielle's roses from Jacqueline. She calls to thank her, then calls again to berate her. Oh wait, the flowers were for CHRISTINE. I hope she got to see them. One good thing, when Danielle decided to make the second call she sent Jillian out of the room. Good girl. During call number two, did anyone else notice the dog attacking the furry purple bone in the background? Seemed appropriate to the voicemail. Editors, I love you. "She's walking in a fashion show, and nothing’s going to take me down." Oh wait, the modeling job is for CHRISTINE.
Now it’s time for tea and ho-bags! Dina, if you don’t want to see Teresa’s chuckie, stay away from red raspberry leaf tea. Otherwise you’re good to go.
Caroline will only enter Jacqueline's house if there is coffee. I completely understand this. I don’t talk to my husband or children before I have coffee. During the discussion about the Danielle drama AGAIN, she brings up a good point. If Danielle didn’t celebrate Nicholas' birth and Jacqueline didn't make a big deal out of that, why the drama regarding Jacqueline missing the lunch and sending flowers? Oh, wait. Sending flowers will get you killed in housewife land; we learned that on our show. It's almost as bad as being a ho-bag.
I'm loving the new you. You go girl! Going forward try not to hold everything in until you are so mad that you explode, because you've held so much in that everything comes out all jumbled. I've learned to go to the person as soon as I'm angry. When you hold two or three years worth of stuff in you it is hard to get your point across and the other person does not get the point just the anger. I love you.
Alex, Alex, Alex...I am sure Bravo asked you to guest blog but take a lesson from your own show - mind your own business and stay out of other people's relationships - oh wait you haven't learned that one yet, as is clear from last season.
WOW, you changed but not for the better. You looked very petty and small this season. Jill was not your enemy ,, Ramona was very critical or your children,, but hmmmm seems like she has more to offer you right now,, Luxury trip.. beautiful home in the Hamptons,, very interesting how you work things. You and Betthany have alot in common.
Alex, surprised to see your face in Jersey! want you to know I love you in NYC! You shoot from the hip and don't allow time for any BS phony balonies. It actually hurt to see you at a function and get attacked and then ostracized, but I recovered when I saw you refused to sink to the level of the trash talkers. Keep your morals right where they are, anyone watching knows just what kind of person you are. You ROCK!
It was wonderful to see you get a "voice" this season!! I loved seeing you "call out" some of the horrible things the "mean" girl(s) did and said to you! Simon is a hoot with his shopping and fashion - I've never seen a man that passionate about those subjects before. Love it! Your boys are adorable. Keep being "heard" - and I do hope you stay on the show. As for this blog - too funny! And too true!
LOL Alex! I am so glad you are voicing your opinion this season! I love your sense of humor too! Hopefully that bunch on your show will get the stick outta their butts and find their humor too.........
alex go back to not being a mean girl from new york and just BEING YOU. you and simon were to me the most real people on the show what happened.
Alex you are too funny. I am so glad this season you came out of your shell and showed disgusting Jill up! Sticking up for Bethenny in front of all those people couldn't have been easy. Esp without any of your true friends! Keep on keepin on!!!!!! Loves it.
Alex, I think you are so sweet and intelligent. Jill is jealous of everyone that is doing better than her or she feels look better than she does. She is the "mean girls" in high school, the bullies that has a group that helps her to do it. Jill doesn't do anything on her own, she has to have Luanne and Kelly to help her do her nastiness. I agree with Bethenny, Jill has not changed, she just thinks she has. She shows her true colors every time you open your mouth. She actually hates you and not the other way arround. I even thinks she is jealous of you and Simon's relationship because any one can tell you both love and respect each other. People like Jill do not want to change, she likes the way she is. She only wants to make up with Bethenny so she can be on her new show and get some of the attention. I am glad Bethenny finally realized who her true friends were. I can relate to your personality because it is a little like mine. People in this world today mistake kindness for weakness, because that is how warped the world has become. Stay the way you are and ignore Jill's ignorance when she says that you both were never "friends" because you have to be a friend to know what one looks like. Love you and Simon.
I'm Eileen, I'm eighteen years old, and I'm from the wonderful city of Chicago! I love watching The Real Housewives Of New York City, because of you and Bethenny. You two are my favorite women! You're one of the nicest women on the show and you hear everything from everyone's side before you say a word...and sometimes you don't even see a word! I love you, Simon, and the twins! (I don't know how to spell their names, I didn't take French in high school, I took Spanish, lol) They're the cutest little babies around! Anyways, I think you're awesome! Keep it up!
Alex, it is great to see you "come out" this season. You have every bit as much wit and intelligence as Bethany. Loved seeing you put those women in their place.
Ignore the mean girl comments. You are just calling it like it is. I think you have taken enough snide comments from the others that they deserve what they get from you finally sticking up for yourself. You and Bethenny actually seem the most real and true to yourself.
Love LOve Love you.
I wish people would stop confusing you standing up for yourself as you being a "mean girl." You can be soft and sweet, but when someone crosses you or your family you're a kitten with a whip! Keep being you - you're one of my favorites!
Alex I love that you express your self this season. I understand how people can say you were being mean. but for christ's sake you put up with a lot of stuff from last season. p.s this blog was hysterical.
Alex, I LOVE YOU!!! That was the funniest thing I've read so far. Way to break up the tension! You are a breath of fresh air to me. I love how you let it all out this season. Don't let other people walk all over you and then keep your anger all bottled up!? Whatever the delivery, I commend you for calling it like you see it and telling people what you think, TO THEIR FACE! If they don't like it, too bad. "Mean Girl" and "bully" you are not! I have not seen you do one thing with malicious intent. Being honest and trustworthy have earned you a greater respect then being meek and polite.
Alex, I LOVE YA!!!! You were AWESOME this season! I loved you standing up to the crazy duo..LuAnn and Kelly! They're NUTS!!! The "Mean Girls" comment to Jill...PRICELESS!!!!! LOL I hope to see you on Bethenny's show!! Keep up your new Attitude next season!!
I really liked you the past season now I don't!!! You talk about being a mean girl, well honey you're ONE!!!! Besides that Ramona has treated you more bad than any of the other ones!! And she stills say mean things to people, you think that's ok?!! What, as long as it's not towards YOU!!! Don't like you anymore!!!!
Alex, we love you this season!!!!! Hope you can keep it above the line and not let it get you to over confident that it turns you into someone we hate. I think that it was due time to call Jill out on what horrible things she has said about you and your family!I think that Bethany is fun but sometimes I just want her to shut up!!She tends to keep rattling on and on! Hope to see you next season and also hope that you are successful in your job!
All I know is this show was so hard to watch this season it gave me a headache!!!! Probabaly be the last time I watch it!!!!! BRAVO PLEASE TAKE IT OFF!!!!!!!
Alex! So glad you stood up for yourself this season. I hated the way the women treated & judged you and Simon in the beginning. You are far classier and I'm glad you speaking out against the BS. xx
Alex, I used to find you a breath of fresh air and reason, now you are just mean and I NO LONGER ENJOY WATCHING YOU... Jill has her issues , but she is just being Jill. Each house wife had a persona that was fun to watch and get to know. It was fun to see them grow and bloom . Sadly you are not growing or blooming this year... You are being a bully and I find it to be disturbing. Go back to the Calm Breath of Fresh air we all enjoyed watching... the bully you is just to mean even for cable.
Alex, I love your take on the Jersey girls! It's fun, quirky and gives a neat spin on things. I hope you Blog on them more often!
Alex, im loven the new you!!!!!!! nice job standing up for yourself, and sayn what needs to be said to Jill, love, love, loven u this sea,,,,,, :)
i love you! SO FUNNY. i would love to hear yours and bethenny's opinions about housewives from other cities all the time.
Alex, I Just wanted to say I so appriciated you so much this season. I love the show and you remained real and nontoxic. BEST!
Alex, you nailed it. I think you are hilarious, and thank you for coming out of your shell, you are great!
You lost another fan! You've been horrible this season and hope you're embarassed by some of the things you've done & said on the show. I detest mean girls and, sweetie, you're at the top of that list right now because you have NO REASON to be so mean. Grow up.
Alex,I LOVE YOU!!!! I love how this season you are not holding back...Also I break out in hives when I get very angry and stuff...So you are not alone in that...I also LOVE your book....
ALEX!!! So funny and so very insightful at the same time! I just LOVE you and you're common sense. Which as most of us know is lacking in some of the other housewives.
Alex, good for you. You're actually getting to do what you like best, pointing fingers and critiquing everyone else. You must feel wonderful. Yea!
OMG!! Alex, you and Bethanny are the only two housewives that are sane and that have normal lives. I think that the other wives are totally jeallous of you and what you and Simon have together. I have a group of girlfriends and I am the only one that has a wonderful husband, 2 beautiful daughters, a simple home, and am very comfortable with my life. I do not work. Iam a retired nurse and had to leave my job b/c of my kidney disease. I am now on permanent disability and getting income from my social security checks. My husband works like a slave to provide the necessities for our daughters and me. You and Simon are that way. You do not let the drama interfere with your life and especially with the life of your boys. I commend you both. Keep up the good work and hope to continue to see you on the show. Good Luck
alex, what a well-written blog!! I love it. When RHONY began I didn't really "get" you, and of course I realize it's just tv and there is more to you than what's on the show, but this season we've been allowed to see who you really are. I think you are smart, funny, you have a grip on reality that some others do not--just sayin'. I absolutely love reading your blog & I think your take on events are spot on! keep being you!!
Alex, you remind me so much of Elizabeth Montgomery, you are a really beautiful lady not like those other "ho-bas" I'm "just sayin".
P.S. You were right to confront Jill. She is mean and that it is very difficult being her friend.
Alex!!!!!! You are full of suprises! You are the type of person that when you speak, everyone listens. You are set back in a alot of ways but have alot to say! Thanks for the humor!
Alex, So glad to see you confront Jill about the remarks she makes concerning your family. She really needed that. She is just a miserable person and I really hope Bethenny keeps her distance from Jill. Advise her to, the last thing she needs is a wretch like that messing up the positiveness of a baby in your life. As for Luanne, drop her like a hot potato, she is so annoying, she is so classless and she is right, money didn't buy her class. Dont let her run roughshod over you again. What happened between you and Jill is none of her business, you should have told her this at her party when she confronted you. Stand up to her!
Alex....God bless you. You certainly can be a voice of reason amidst the insanity that can at times be The Real Housewives...all of them on the Housewives shows.
Keep up the good work and don't let anyone ever get you as upset as you did on Poison Island. LOL They aren't worth it.
Love the show!!
Alex, nicely stated!! And I must say... I am so proud of the fact that you took a stand this season with your own HW drama! Standing up to Jill and Luanne. You show class and restraint and that's more than I can say for some of the other HW... especially the NJ~HW!!! They spend way too much time getting sucked into the drama!!
