Jill and Kelly are both so narcissistic that they think any challenging response to them is "mean." They single Simon out amongst the thousands who tag them because they know him. The real problem for Jill and Kelly is the other people on Twitter who challenge them on their BS or nonsense daily. And, there are people out there who DO send them really awful tweets -- probably the same people who tweet nasty-grams at all the rest of us. Simon actually helped Kelly's web team change her Twitter handle when she ran into trouble and nearly lost all her followers, and Simon got nothing but a slap in the face for it, plus tons of fans wondering why he'd bother to help her. Apparently being a nice guy isn't cool.
Anyway, somehow in Jill and Kelly's mind this adds up to Simon cyber-bullying them, or organizing gangs of people to cyber-bully them. If you think that's true, go look for it online. Nope, you won't find it because it isn't there. I am so sick of these girls crying wolf, when the only wolf-ish behavior out there is from them. I am equally sick of the word "bully" being used, because that makes a mockery of kids and young adults who actually suffer at the hands of bullies.
Jill is so thin-skinned that if someone she doesn't like tweets "Where are you from?" she views it as an attack. Grow up; we're not in 5th grade. It's like tweeting at a person with dark hair saying "I don't like dark hair," and that person feeling harassed. It's just not a legitimate claim for anyone, let alone someone on reality TV.
Next, I am truly amazed that LuAnn actually thinks that I equate her with any sort of New York society. Why would Kelly, LuAnn, or Jill think Simon or I want their attention? Sure, I enjoy sparring with them when we are together -- that's entertaining to you and me both. Do I think any of them are socially relevant? Nope; I know they are not.
Jill and Simon needed to talk. When Jill and I burnt the past, that did not mean that Simon automatically forgave her, or that he automatically forgave her for all her digs at me, our kids, and him. He was involved. Guess what, if I had ever attacked Bobby, Jill would probably insist I write a notarized apology in blood and send it to the New York Post. Why does she think that building a bonfire with me automatically fixes her first friendship, which was with Simon? That's not how the world works, and I call BS on that one. Or just plain old cowardice.
Love you, love you, love you. Please find a nicer, classier venue for your talents. You & Simon deserve better.
You are a CLASS ACT Alex! You have the best blogs! You're truly a great person and the best housewife of NYC:)
I applaud the compassion and patience you showed while Kelly blathered on at the deli. She really has it all backwards. Way to handle her with kid gloves.
Alex, do not waste your time with Ramona, Jill or Kelly, they are not worth any time or saliva. I think is great that you mentioned that your husband is more important and that if any of the ladies want to address anything to Simon, they should go and talk to him.
I appreciate your support for Simon. I know you are fair and if there was ever a time where you felt that Simon was in the wrong, I know you would approach him in private and respectfully. Thank you for being a stand-up wife. When you marry, you become one. Kelly once again is in LaLa Land, what is she talking about half the time, she looks like a babbling fool.
Simon just keep on doing what you are doing (w/or w/o Twitter). If you can manage to get under Jill's skin at least once per episode...it will make my day.
First time visitor to your blog. Loved it. I have watched the show from day 1. I think you are kind, bright and insightful. I think if you didn't have to spend so much camera time trying to make sense of the ridiculous things those women say, we as an audience, would get to know you and Simon better. Love Simon's style btw, I end up waiting for him to make an entrance! Take a tip from Bethany when she was around and never try to make sense of the crazies, and never let the bitches bother you. See you next Thursday.
Alex I like you so much that I wish you can learn how to defend yourself. You seem to young to be around all those retired woman. Kelly it is the most crazy person in tv and it make me so sick of my stomach to see how she is with you. Why do you let her be like that to you? Also that LuAnn been so nasty to you. Pls learn to protect yourself from those tipe of people. Wish you the best Pd. You look so beautiful as a Model but pls learn how to dress
bravo Alex, you show such integrity with you actions and comments... one day truth will shine over lies and falsehoods. I'm just so amazed you can keep your cool and act with class while under such severe adversity!
I'm sure you and Simon make a lot of sense to each other in your home. But at the end of the day, Simon really isn't a housewife and should probably bow out of the conflicts. Bobby approached Simon man to man...Simon could probably learn something from that. Ultimately, I sympathize with you and Simon. Kelly was kind of right when she touched on the brooklyn thing. I think you two are reaching.
ALEX I LOVE YOU .. YOU ARE THE BEST HOUSE WIFE ON THE SHOW AND YOUR THE ONLY ONE THAT MAKES SENSE ... YOU THE ONLY ACTUAL ADULT OUT OF ALL THE HOUSEWIVES ... I NEED TO GIVE SOME LESSONS ON SHUTTING THEM CHICKS DOWN THO... YOUR LETTING THEM WALK OVER YOU WITH THERE NONSENSE ..
You are the voice of reason in bedlam.Your loyalty should be to Simon not these "socialites" who treat people as expendables.
Jill did nothing to your husband at the party. He was the one who said, "Watch out!" and that caused the discussion about the mean tweeting. Jill was nothing but polite, honest, and truthful to Simon.
Wow...you handled yourself well when confronted by a kooky Kelly! I believe KKB,Jill and LuLu are so insecure in themselves they need to pick on you,Ramona and Sonja....3 woman who REALLY know who they are!! But Alex could ya tell Simon to knock off the caftan look...not lovin' it...wait !...if I have a problem with Simon I need to take it up with him...I will!! ;0)
Tonight when you were speaking with Kelly, it reminded me of Bethenny and Kelly's past interactions. Kelly won't stop talking, and she loves to jab at you without letting anyone get a word in. It's so strange that she blurts out what you (meaning Simon) did wrong, and doesn't expect you to have a rebuttal. Her behavior is very similar to the word she loves to say about everyone else "weird"...
Even if Simon did send a "mean" tweet to the diva's of the group, they need to speak to Simon not you. When LuAnn, Cindy and Jill were all discussing how "odd" it was for Simon to ask Jill to lunch, I burst out laughing. Jill thinks so much of herself that she turned a small lunch into a huge ordeal ~ We all know that Bobbie could care less if she went to lunch with Simon!
you, ramona, sonya i loved and the rest don't care they just trying hard to be wanna be famous!
Nothin' but love from this commenter. I am amazed at the poise and restraint you exhibit when being subjected to these ladies' ridiculous, condescending crap. You, quite simply, have more class and grace in your pinky than the countess does in her entire body. Bravo to you, Alex!
I actually find Kelly to be really weird and funny. I love your blogs Alex, you always seem to say it just right...
Hey Alex - I just want to say one thing: I find it to be the funniest thing on television when KKB goes on a rant about how someone else's behavior is weird - too, too hilarious (and scary too.) Luv to the kiddies and Simon (Your FB and website fan.) O_o
Alex...I am always on your side when things blow up because you are the voice of reason. You are always able to explain things so clearly about the episodes and the back stories that accompany them. One thing that threw me tonight, and I hope Simon explains it in his blog, was the WATCH OUT that he said to Jill. It did sound a little threatening, which seems out of character for Simon.
Alex you need to be a little aggresive, Kelly wants to talk but as soon you start to talk she gets weird and doesnt let you talk shes so dam rude not to listen to you. Dont let her do that. she says Simon is weird and its her. She is so freaking RUDE. ITS like a joke to her, keeps attacting you. Put a stop to that. Tell shut the f k up and hear me out,
Love you Alex!!! You are the only one on the show who has any class and makes any sense. Bravo, don't you dare let Alex go. She is the only reason I watch the show. Luann is classless, Kelly a nut, and Jill---well I am at a loss for words. TEAM ALEX!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
i'm with you and simon...it appears the other "housewives" are trying to ramp up the drama at Simon's expense. We see through it and, as always, you coming shining through.
You maintain good intentions and exude sincerity. Traits that are truly worth admiration.
Alex, you are my favorite. You're the voice of reason on the show, the only one who gets it right on.
