Whoooa, I watched this part of the reunion with my jaw on the desk, even though I knew what was coming because I was there. . .
There were multiple times tonight where all seven of us, plus Andy, were talking over each other, and a couple of things got lost in the chatter. When Cindy got huffy at Sonja about Quogue, I reminded her of her attitude about Governors Island, a trip of seven minutes vs. an hour.
Also two points to clarify over the Marriage Equality march. Number 1: I don't think that the RHONY fight helped pass the bill -- as I said, it was a shame that on a day about LGBT marriage, three straight people were arguing. I do think that 40 minutes of primetime TV for a civil rights issue is good for awareness despite the drama. Number 2: While it’s true that there were last minute shenanigans at midnight before the march, they were not to do with the invitation. It was online for a good month before the march, and still is. No last minute add-ons there; once up, it was never edited. Regardless, Sonja and I got through the drama and that’s a good thing. What really matters is that as of yesterday, our LGBT brothers and sisters can legally get married in New York State and I am thrilled. 44 states and immigration benefits left to go.
The "not the time, not the place" montage had me giggling -- priceless. I smell a drinking game phrase for all future Housewives episodes, a bonus to whatever the secret word happens to be. Kind of like punching your brother when you see a silver VW on a road trip.
I’m amazed that LuAnn always looks shocked when people point out that she is often less than gracious and kind to many of us. Either she has memory loss issues, doesn’t watch the show, or has rose-colored glasses on when watching herself on television. Possibly all three? And we haven’t even gotten to Morocco or our coffee date with Herman Munster yet.
I miss you and Simon, Bravo bring Alex back, shes fun, very smart most of all interesting!
Absolutely love you Alex. You are spot on. Glad that you were able to get your point across tonight. When you do, they know that they are caught in a lie and have no answer. That is why they do not allow you to speak. Kelly is yet to answer the questions of why she said the awful things that she said this season.
Alex.. I thought as usual the Brunettes were vile..all of them. You've had your moments, but you didn't deserve that "planned" gang up. They all went out of there way to stick it to you, and they were disgusting.
The reunion was out of control tonight. I was embarrassed for them because they all looked pretty bad tonight. I've never seen such an angry group of women. I would have loved to hear what everyone had to say but that was almost impossible with everyone talking over each other. Hope the 2nd part goes better. Andy, you need to get control of these woman for the next part. I have to go take pills for my headache.
Alex finally is speaking up for herself and the burnettes are going out of their way to keep her quiet. I do not see Kelly as a peacemaker at all. She could not be more condesending to the blondes.
Alex, I just voted for you as my favoirite housewife of NYC. I just want you to know that I deeply sympathize with your turning red in certain situations. I have dealt with the same affliction all of my life (I'm 41). A wise old Dr. told me when I was 13 that it was "Overactive Capilarries" close to the surface of my fair skin, many people have this, it can't be controlled and don't worry about it, if it bothers someone else (ala Kelly) then that is their problem. I admire you going on TV where it is visible to many. Unfortunately, I feel it has somewhat inhibited my life because I hate explaining it to ignorant people and their rude reactions. I will say it has made me a very compassionate person to other people and their afflictions. I would like to let you know that many famous, wonderful women, including another Alex, Alexandra the last Tsarina of Russia, share our diagnosis. Best Wishes, Susie
Alex, I found you to be so incredible humble and much more sophisticated then the other girls that just acted like high school mean girls. Please go back to the way you were in the first couple seasons. This season has just sickened me that you are falling into the groove of the others. You were so uplifting to watch!
Oh I can't believe you put yourself through all of this BS with these women. I hope you find another venue. It was obvious they were prepared to pounce on you whenever you started talking.
And on Watch What Happens, Neil Patrick Harris showed himself to be rude and condescending--the way people say he is in Hollywood. He admitted he barely watched the show but felt free to drop his um..knowledge about you guys. I've lost the little respect I had for him.
I wish you well in the future. You're always going to do well.
I just read your blog and i have to say that i'm very disappointed in you. I've always thought you were the most composed and rational among this bunch of ladies. Your behavior in the past episodes and how you speak of the other ladies in your blogs show me that you have descended to a very low level.
I saw no reason to diss Kelly and insinuate that she lied about being listed as one of the top 5 nicest celebs. Cosmo radio put her on that list. You can confirm that fact just by a little digging on google. Yet you choose to insinuate thst kelly is a liar. This proves that you are no better than jill or ramona who would create intrigues out of hearsay before confirming facts. I'm so disappointed in you!
Alex, You held your own tonight on the reunion. Dont let them talk down to you. And as far as NPH's comments about you ,on Watch What Happens LIve, he is a douche no talent. He doesn't represent gays. We love you and appreciate your support. You keep evolving and showing the world who you really are. Your great. Good Luck on your new career. Dolph
You looked beautiful tonight in that shade of blue. You're the only one with class on that show, but you know that right? Oh, and Sonja too.
The comments from your husband take the o out of countess and your see you next Tuesday to Lu Anne were disgusting. Saying that about a women is like using the n word to Afro Americans.
All of your points are right on. I totally agree with you on just about everything, you always seem to try and keep the conversation sane- thanks!... Team Brunette was very unfair to all of Team Blonde tonight, it was hilarious watching them make a fool of themselves when they tried to rationalize their thoughts with no success
Don't let those women dismiss you or talk down to you. They have no manners and have no right acting like they are better than you. Stay tough, but above their drama.
I just do not like your attitude and you grated on my nerves 2 minutes after the reunion show started!
You are great Alex and I think you and Simon have a great relationship, never thought I would say that but you have great communication. Maybe the burnettes are scared by a man that wants to communicate.
Alex I have always loved you. I think that out of everyone you and Bethenny were actually real or at least seemed that way. Of course there are times you regret or have to look away but you always come from a truthful and honest place. For me I am so confused at how anyone is thinking Kelly has gotten better. I mean its so shocking the things she says and then retaliates with. It doesn't make sense where even though the Brunettes wanted more on their team Id still say Kelly you should sit this one out. Anyway I wish you luck but RHONY needs to change from just being bitchy to having some substance. Please Alex dont turn into all of them. Then maybe you can bring it back!
Watching the reunion part 1 tonight, I'm almost speechless. The brunettes are something else to say the least. They don't respect you Alex. I hate watching that. I'm not sure why they find it so easy to talk to you just any old way they'd like. I can clearly see that you'd be a great, TRUE FRIEND to everyone on the show if they showed you respect and didn't constantly put you down, your husband, and your children. Speaking of YOUR children, I found it funny that Jill was so quick to get angry when she felt Ramona was talking about Luann's kids but has always been quick to talk about your children.
Yes what was wrong with the brunettes telling you to butt out when everyone was sticking up for their friend?? So annoying. And I don't get what is up with Kelly? Does she not hear the same thing we do? She is the weird one. You, Simon, Sonja and Ramona are my fave! Ps I don't remember you saying anything rude or mean to Cindy.
Alex we love you you are down to earth and normal , Ramona is the only friend you have, Sonja is harmless just have fun with her
Alex, I agree with Andy on WWHL - the ladies don't give you a chance to speak. That is probably because you always have something intelligent to say and they can't handle it! I did notice that the blondes got most of the favorites votes. I thought you were terrific in Morocco - you showed how a true friend acts to help (Ramona) in their time of need. Keep up you calm, level-headed attitude and advice - it is sorely needed!
Alex I usually enjoy you as a level headed housewife, but tonight you seemed to want to jump into every conversation. Between your comment about Cindy needing to get laid and your husbands comment about Luanne's Countess minus the O, I feel that you are both very offensive towards women and cross the line.
I was cheering for you all night. You held your own and maintained your dignity. No, you're not losing your mind; the women on the other couch really were that outrageous and inappropriate. Please allow me to send you a virtual hug. Were it not for you, I would have turned the show off. Let me end by saying you looked beautiful.
Alex you need to fight your own battles not Ramona's or Sonja's. Very classy of you to use the word "Laid" towards Cindy. Yes, I used the "C" word - funny how you contridict yourself! Like LuAnn said "Get a life"!
The name calling in the being of the season was "okay" because you guys had not made up yet from the season before if you didnt remember. I'm pretty sure thats what Jill meant.
The Brunettes really ganged up on you tonight. I felt like I was watching Jerry Springer. I was waiting for Cindy to jump up and do some hair pulling...
I've been reading and hearing that the entire cast of RHONY are gone..if so i wish you and your family best wishes..you were terrific but it has gone on one season too long.
Alex, as always...You are wonderful. I love that you did win in Andy's vote , just wish it had been !st. But at least a "blonde" won. Yea BLONDES!!!!!!!
You really have found your voice and you use it well Alex! Ramona and Sonja are lucky to call you friend.
My heart goes out to you. I just do not care for the other women at all. It is getting hard to watch them gang up on you. My best wishes to you :)
I saw the Cosmo thing. It was in the magazine, not online, and they did name her as one of the nicest.
