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.
You have become my favorite housewife on this show and I have watched in horror the way you have been treated and wanted to punch these women for you. Yet somehow 99% of the time you were able to maintain your composure and talk very kindly and respectfully to those being condescending and completely insulting right to your face - not to mention interrupting you every other word you tried to get out. It saddened me to see you get sucked into some of the caddyness this season but I can see you were just trying to stand up for yourself. You have a deep heart that doesn't like to see people hurt and you tried to voice that sometimes only to be ripped apart by (namely) the brunettes. I have always been impressed by the way you comment about situations without insulting or putting people down. I think this season that was tougher for you to do because so many people had hurt you and there were a lot of wounds you had that caused your responses to perhaps be harsher than normal. But I still think you have the best heart out of anyone on the show, that you genuinely care about others and often put them before yourself. You have a great marriage with the man you love and people that criticize your relationship are only jealous. You have made no claim of either you or Simon being perfect and I think it is absolutely wonderful and inspiring to see a couple so much in love and who respect each other equally. America needs to see this! So what if Simon's a bit quirky - it's clear that's part of what you love so much about him and I am glad you don't hold back showing your love. You will be greatly greatly missed in the future, but I honestly think it is the best thing for you. You are treated so lowly by everyone but Sonja and Ramona and you deserve to have better friends around you. Good luck in your future!
In my opinion, you are the most honest and straight talking housewife.. you get what you see with you and simon. No pretence. You are the voice of reason. and I think the others know it.. I like how bethany and your friendship is evolving too..
i think you were a victim of "systematic bullying:" this season...LMAO.. im dying to know what Bethany thinks.. lol... and SO HAPPPYYYYYYY You Stood up to those girls.
You are a FAV, please stay on the planet with us.. some of those ladies are beyond reach now... they are clueless about themselves and how they come off... The Countess lost her title with her attitude, Jill makes me speechless, and Kelly.. NO COMMENT!!
Luanne was so dismissive towards you during the reunion I was screaming at the TV. Kelly likes to play she was bullied card and all she did was bully you. Jill just doesn't like you because she feels you are not of her social status. I can't say I am team blonde but I am team Alex.
Alex, I really thing you're trying to hard to be something, or someone you're not. Ramona's a big girl and can dish it out and stand her own ground. You come off a bit phony, and sometime surreal, with your over the top dramatics. I'm an old bird, and class and manners speak volumes. Relax, stop playing to the camera.
Alex, I thought that you were ambushed by those mean girls sitting on the other side of the room. Andy couldn't even control them.
Alex, Please know, you have always been and are still the housewife with the most class. The way Jillousy, Countess Loser-Luann and Coo-Coo-Kelly come at you is just low-class and inappropriate. They communicate like bratty 6th grade girls who think they are right about everything and it is truly just sad. Please keep your head up, beautiful lady. The audience sees their ugliness. Xoxo Leigh Ann
Well WOW...... This reunion was a mess, a HOT mess. I'm sure the Countess, Jill and Kelly thought they have won this round but all they accomplished was the continued disgust of everyone who hated them last year.
Alex, You are a good person, the one thing we didn't get to see was you finishing a thought. The Dark Horses were in prime shape this year, really bad show with out Bethany. Jill makes me sick ..... does she own anything? she says she does and turns her head and does it all over again. Kelly was iced out with me from last year and no doubt with so many viewers. The Countess she was an embarrassment not only to her own but to all. She does know how to look down on the little people and the greatest thing about that is everyone noticed.....I agree with one of the comments, you all should have yes and no'd them and watched them turn on each other.....love you Alex, don't let the bitches get ya down.O come back I love watching Jills head spin...green soup next.
o as for the new girl....... when she was on vacation with you all, she had a heart, she felt other's pain, thought she'd be a good addition. Now? They have sucked her soul out through a straw, Jill is a real tribute to the stuck up women of New York. Hey, now there's a show for her.... I'm in the middle of the country and happy not to be on either cost. Petra
Alex, You are the only one with an ounce of sense...that's why the brunettes can't handle it...they don't know what common sense is! You are the best. Get rid of the brunettes on this show!!!
Alex you are my favorite housewife, you are a great real mom, wife, business women and obviously educated.
Love you Alex. Good luck to you with your new ventures. I think you are a beautiful person, woman and extremely smart. You should write a book on basic manners and common sense for those other spoiled ladies. You and Bethany are very alike seem very grounded. Stay away from high society Alex as honestly you are much too nice and too smart. You have a lovely family and obvious that Simon and you love each other very much. Your kids are adorable. Have a great rest of 2011.
Alex, I think you are an honest, down-to-earth woman who loves her husband and kids, and puts them first above everything else. I know you are very forgiving and have a soft heart. You are the only woman who is truly authentic on RHNY. I think Sonja has a good heart too, she's just a little out there sometimes. And Ramona just says what she thinks, but I believe 80% of the time it's innocent and not meant to hurt anyone. She's just blunt, and that can sometimes get you in trouble. I predict the RHNY will be cancelled after next season, if there is a next season, so I think you should join RHNJ. You would fit in much better there and they (except for a couple of the new ones this year), are very nice, respectful "Classy" ladies.
Alex, You are STILL my favorite! I hate how the other "ladies" (and I use that loosely) gang up on you. Kelly is still crazy and she only gangs up on you to try to deflect from her own strange persona. I'm also with you on the whole "class" business with LuAnn. She definitely likes to separate herself from all the other women in middle America. Stay STRONG! I love how you grew into your confidence this season.
Alex, I do like you and think that you have a lot of much needed common sense. However, I think that during the reunion you might have gotten too caught up and were being more aggressive than necessary. I don't want to see you stoop to the level of some of the other ladies. Sometimes saying nothing speaks volumes.
Alex, you are my FAV FAV FAVORITE! I feel so bad for you how you are attacked this season and on the reunion. However it only makes them look worse and you look better. The brunette's behavior is disgusting and tantamount to high school bullying. Keep being you because it's nice to know that there's a decent human being (including the other blondes) on that show. Geez LuAnne just won't shut up. She won't ever cop to anything either. Maybe she should have put in her book that if you're gonna make a dig at least own it. ps...just becuz you may get more red in the face than them DOESN'T mean we don't see them sweat!
Thoroughly enjoy you Alex. Find Jill's comments to you insulting and baseless. As for the Countless, she could learn a thing or two about manners from you. You are a gem!
Alex FYI there is such a thing as a functioning alcoholic. I was married to one for 10 yrs. My ex-husband was diagnosed by his court ordered psychologist as a functioning alcoholic. The reason they maintain their jobs and businesses is because that is how they justify their drinking. They tell themselves that as long as I keep my job and support my family then there is nothing wrong with my drinking. Ramona does the same thing she alwasy does whenever her drinking is brought up she goes on the defense and brings up how she runs 5 businesses. One question I have for you is during the 1st reunion you told Kelly that she needed to get laid. Now you said that your family would kill you or disown you somthing like that if you did Luann's video. What did your family say about you telling someone on national t.v.that they need to get laid?
Alex u are so sweet,an i know you tried puttin it all out there this yr. But please these Biotches, will take u down,if U don't scream back or yell back,espicially Jill& Luann. Don,t let them get a word in! Your voice is so soft,they think u cant stand behind what u say. They seem to think they can push u out an not film with U,like Bethenny.Jill will never change.
First off..... Very impressed with the way you've handled Kelly. DOESN'T ANYONE REMEMBER HOW CRAZY SHE IS FROM SEASONS PAST?! I would have thrown her crazy sayings and nervous breakdown back in her face, so you're a kinder woman than I. I think you and Sonja should have your own spinoff show and leave those other ladies in the dust!
Keep speaking your mind! Kelly is crazy and she's the worse on the show! Keep standing up to her and Jill! :) go girl!
"Maybe she meant that she was in the nice column on Santa’s list, and wants a subscription to Cosmo in her Christmas stocking. " Hahaha! Alex, you're becoming my fave! Stay positive!
I love all of you....but you remind me of the girl next door who i can have real world conversations about plus you are educated. Don't let them bully you especially Kelly because she not all there. Stay strong and stop even arguing with them anymore...let them look childish.
Hang tough tonight Alex. It is painfully obvious to the viewing audience that the entire left couch is excruciatingly envious of the right couch. When they open their mouths, they remove all doubt! You, Sonja, and Ramona may not be BFFs, but you know how to treat each other graciously and you act like friends. Can't wait to tune in tonight and watch you out-class the countess!!! P.S. Kelly can't form a sentence correctly. It's downright uncomfortable to watch her.
Love you, Alex. You are one of my favorites on the show. Your no nonsense approach to some of the drama is refreshing. Your own whatever you do and are the most honest about your opinions. RDHONY is not your whole life. You and Simon and the boys actually have a life and seem happy to live it.
Alex, you are beautiful, intelligent, elegant, and edgy in your fashion style. Good luck to you and Simon, stay strong and always in love. :-)
Alex, I wish you would just say what you are going to say and stop being so polite, heaven knows the other housewives don't even think about it...(except maybe Cindy, but she still new) After seeing the reunion which was hard to watch and boring, I hope you guys get back to reality and maybe next year the season won't be as hard to watch without channel surfing during the fight scenes which were too numerous to count...LOL I wish you Luck!!
I really hope this makes the cut! YOU are my favorite Alex!! Your are sane and loyal and a true friend!
Alex, you are very funny and very expressive. I know your shocked that LuAnn is talking down to everyone else and that she does have an air about her. It's good to here your not taking there stuff sitting down. Also, it didn't take Jill long to point out how the blonde's left you out. What ever Jill, your always trying to start something between friends. Well You keep on keeping on..
Alex, sometimes, less is more... I think that to a degree you are "making up" for previous seasons. Everyone has an opinion, however the delivery of such is the true challenge. I must say that I have lost some of my respect for you. I do believe that you are a very educated woman, but with you commenting on "every topic", your opinion has lost its value. Maybe "less is more".
It seemed as though your interruptive comments were your way of making up for previous reunions where you sat there basically mute. Amazingly, you came off as the THUG (in a garish colored cocktail dress) you claim LuAnn to be. It would have been more effective to get your point across, if you didn't keep squawking over the ongoing conversation that you were not even included. Yes, you should have waited your turn to speak. Obviously, you wanted to even the score of this season and past seasons' issues you had. What I still don't understand is the giant leap you made from S-1 when you professed to not caring one whit what anyone said to becoming so overly sensitive to every comment made in jest or sarcasm. Some of the remarks were just jokes. Some were darker. Some were the sad truth (i.e. your boys running amok while you obliviously shopped in Jill's store. It was truly poor behavior not easily tolerated)... If you had addressed the speaker at the offending time, it would have saved time and escalating frustration. Maybe, you would have more friends (than 2) out of this experience.
Alex, I hate how Luann always says you are trying to be "relevant". And she is supposed to be so classy, yet she puts you down constantly. You are a wife, mother, and business woman...I would say that makes you pretty relevant!
Alex, normally I do like you but I have to say that it seems like you are getting a bit weirder lately. I have no problem with you speaking up for Ramona or Sonja once in a while but at the reunion you kept trying to talk to much it was almost like you wanted them to be mean to you. I liked the comment where someone said you & Ramona & Sonja all should have just answered yes & no to the questions so you couldn't let the brunettes get the best of you. I don't love LuAnn but you have to admit during the reunion stayed more composed than the rest of you and didn't attack anyone.
Go Alex you and Simon have a good relationship he is a little out there but i like the way you told that nut Kelly if she had a problem with him to talk to him but you might as well have been talking to the wall your best bet would be to not comment on most of what the brunettes say let them look as rude and classless and crazy as they are Jill is not your friend never has been but she back stabs everyone can't tolerate any of the brunettes i am brunette but would like to be on team blonde much more fun and classy and loyal GO BLONDES
If you were horrified by the way Alex spoke to Cindy, then I'm sure you've been horrified by Cindy's awkward and rude behavior all season.
You were out of line and cheap to say Cindy needed to "Get Laid'.
Cindy was never mean to you.
Guess you got got caught up with you mean blondes attitude.
TEAM BRUNETTES !!!
Hello! I have to say that I was absolutely mortified at the way the four on the other settee talked to you, I just kept saying things in your defense as if Kelly was going look at the camera and scream "satchels of gold Tim!" As for reminding Cindy of anything, I am pretty sure there is no point, she is oblivious to anything going on around her, I think she needs to have the dosage on her meds reduced! The "not the time nor the place" had me giggling to because it only seems like that "catchphrase" works for Kelly, Cindy, LuAnn and Jill! I am sorry that you had to endure that beating that you did, I found it absolutely deploreable and those four should all be ashamed of themselves!
you are the most level headed of the housewives. you don't deserve to get picked on because you're the most mature and real one although of course you have some moments but everyone has some, i mean who wouldn't with the pressure of answering to four women that attack you and its unfair. you're awesome!
Alex you still ROCK!!!! It is very obvious that you are well educated....you always speak ladylike and reasonable...not some of the "other" "ladies"...I was so upset when Jill call you a "fxxxxbxxxx" but you gave it right back to her. Keep on doing what you are doing. You, Ramona & Sonja are my girls!!!
Alex, I would be PROUD to call you my friend. You are the sound mind of the lot! Ramona is so cute and funny, too! I love you both! As for the "mean girls" (the brunettes) I cannot believe that grown women act that way! Jill is nice until she is with LouAnn and Kelley..LouAnn is just condescending and comments on peoples appearances all time..LouAnn, money certainly did NOT buy you class! Alex, you have intelligence, beauty, kindness, a good work ethic, and you are FAIR! God Bless you and your lovely family. I appreciate that you stand by your husband and your friends. Please don't let the others get to you! Keep your head and don't lose your cool! I am an almost 58 year old woman; it hurts me to see the brunettes gang up on you; but, you can hold your own. Rise above it and move on! Good luck!!!
I'm so glad you are holding your ground! You have more class than the countess, more style than Jill and more intelligence than all the housewives combined. Since season one you have been my favorite!
