I’m alternating putting our links at the beginning and end of the blog!! Thanks for watching and please check out my fashion recap here and our Facebook page. Would love it if you follow Simon and me on Twitter, and definitely check out ThuginaCocktailDress.com for our T-shirt partnership with Housing Works. Oh yeah, and Simon's song "I Am Real," and the "Thug in a Club Mix"!
Meanwhile, back in Morocco…fortune tellers or psychics or shamans or normal people with their third eye open should NEVER do a reading with a gaggle of girls around. Nor should they with a camera crew. It's also hard when only Kelly, LuAnn, and I speak French. Although Kelly gets on my last nerve much of the time, I was glad to see that she was trying to be objective with the translation for Ramona.
Here's what -- the fortune teller said another woman was thinking of Mario. Totally possible – when the four of us go out, women always look at him. I see it. Ramona sees it. Anyone with eyes sees it. That doesn't mean he's cheating. If I had a dollar for every time some woman hit on Simon, I'd buy a Birkin retail.
If you're wondering what the psychic told me – it was just the two of us in the room. No translator. She told me that my marriage was good, my money was good, but I had an issue with one of two sons – the "bigger" one was emotional about a recent change. She was right; François had changed schools and at the time was having difficulty adjusting. But, to play devil's advocate, Brad could have been told all of that by Jill.
All I will say about Ramona's hallway discussion and her mention of LuAnn and Mario is that the behavior she described is not confined to Mario.
SO TRUE!! Alex, like always you seem to recap the real deal on these women. Of all the women to encounter a bumpy ride on the camel, I'm glad it was the "Countless, Luann". Ramona, can be a pill, but at the end of day, if you confront her about anything that she's said or done, she'll respond and not go into "selective amnesia", mode. Ramona may say things or done things at times that are inappropriate, but so has all the women. Ramona will own and apologize in most instances, when needed. Great blog Alex.
Alex....your the only lady with their head screwed on right!!!! The other ladies act like a bunch immature drama queens. Your like a breath of fresh air and I love it when the camera is on you!!!! Don't ever change!!!!
Thank goodness you are on this show. There needs to be one rational person and it's you. Your blogs are always the best. Did you find a nice gift for your mother?
Alex i'm sorry I beg to differ, you do not care for Jill and all you do is attack her. Jill has not been attacking you. If this is your way of staying relevant good luck we will see how long it will last. A true friend does not throw a friend out. You are happy that she threw her out, shame on you to think it it is ok.
Alex, as usual you tell it like it is with no cattiness. Good for you. Wonder what Jill and Ramona think when they see themselves. Guess we will know at the reunion show.
Alex: From the first day, first season you have been the voice of reason, and the nicest, most sane RHONY. They say you fround your voice, but I think you have been extremely consistent. When something needs to be said, you say it. Jill's fighting/making up style is so disfunctional. Maybe it is her tone of voice, but she always seems to be attacking and all of her "jokes" are just plain snarky. Love you...keep it real in the face of all the insanity!
I did not like you at first but you are probably the most balanced when it comes to thinking and acting. You are a good friend.
I think you bring an objective POV to the show this season. I'm glad you are stepping up for what you believe in and not shying away from the other girls dominance to try to run the show.
Alex, the first paragraph of this blog sums up what you are about. I loved you in the first season, but you have changed :( You come across as over confident and fighting to be one of the top dogs out of the social group. I thought you were better than this.
Alex, I find that I'm liking you very much this season. I wish you and Luann got along because I find the two of you the most tolerable on the show right now - not to mention the most respectful in a foreign country and the most interested in keeping the peace on this trip. It's upsetting to me that the women on the trip with the most money are the most xenophobic. Anyway thanks for being so watchable - and I love your wardrobe! Loved your cute menswear look with the tie and sweater.
Alex, you are the best.I love the RHONY but I am really having a hard time watching this year because I cannot stand Jill, Louann, Cindy or Kelly. I feel like I am watching catty high school girls when they are sitting around talking. Enjoy everything you have. You deserve it!! Also,stay away from those girls!!
Alex I have to admit on your first season I didn't like you at all, but girl I've grown to like you so much. You are so down to earth, so real... keep it up... be your self, and be happy!!!
the voice of reason...sometimes watching these other women makes me think I'm going nutty. You see things with the eye of common sense.
I loved this blog!!!! You said everything I was thinking(and you said it much more tactfully!!)!!!! Well done Alex- I always love your blogs because you tell it like it is and I respect that!!! Team Alex/Ramona/Sonja!!!!
Alex, I have to admit I hated you at the beginning, and began to enjoy hating you, and saw you so awkward and venomous at the beginning of this season and thought it would go on......but I have grown to like you. I feel like we are watching you grow into being comfortable being yourself. You are articulate, passionate,engaging, confident and civil minded. I can honestly see you trying to be fair so often. It's been interesting watching you take your defenses down enough to let us see who you are, instead of who you are trying to be. I just wish you would lay off of Jill. You clearly have a chip on your shoulder with her, and while I'm sure it's got some foundations in truth, if you can forgive and tolerate Ramona, you can do it with anyone. It just seems like it would be more true to your character to make that effort.
Alex, SPOT ON! I try very hard to watch, and form my own opinions every week about the ladies and their behavior. I must say, as a junior high teacher, I can't stop feeling as if I am in class with my young students when I watch Luanne, Jill, Kelly, and Cindy. It is so sad seeing grown women behave this way on a weekly basis. Thank you for being the voice of reason.
You are the only Housewife who has the ability to see a situation/altercation and understand how all parties might view it. You are also the only one with REAL class. Why can't they all be like you?
Alex - you are by far the most stellar housewife of this group. You are the only one who is secure enough in your own skin that you don't feel the need to drag others down and be childish and spiteful. Great family, great life and great outlook on life. "You da bess gurl"
Alex--You are without a doubt my favorite housewife on RHONY!!! I commend you for being the voice of reason in the midst of chaos!!
Boy way to call it! What is surprising me are two things: 1. Luann the pot stirrer and 2: Kelly the bully.
good show. i agree Jill sees bad in people. this is probably because she treats people bad. good luck to you and yours
Alex, you always put things in perspective. I love your blogs! I'm getting very tired of Jill's antics and the next episodes looks like we get to see Luaan's true colors. Keep being you and I love your family!
Good for you Alex. I am glad you are being brave. If Luann comes anywhere near Simon, kick her in the balls. Am I the only one who thinks she looks like a man??? That voice...mercy...who wouldn't divorce that??? Love you Alex.
thank god there is one voice of reason on this show. your blog confirmed everything i thought after watching that episode.
Go Alex! I always jump to your blog first because you're the most objective of the ladies. I so wish you got more camera time this season - I guess the girls with the most high school drama gets TV time! Sad, sad, sad. Thank you for showing how real women should behave with each other.
Once again Alex, you hit the nail on the head on every topic addressed. You keep it real, and I adore you for that.
You're a class act, Alex! Thank you for knowing who you are, not being afraid to say what you feel you need to, and doing it in a gracious way. You're a woman other women can actually learn from.
Love your blogs, you're kids are very adorable- watching your oldest have a conversation with Simon regarding him hating mashed potatoes but loving oysters..lol- too cute- You are spot on re shrill and countess crackerjacks
Alex i love you, you are so normal and different from the other women. I love reading your blogs because you actually tell the truth, not like LuAnn and Jill, i cant stand those two, i cant even believe they have friends, they are so negative and very HIGH SCHOOL if you ask me.
Hi Alex! LOVED the way you were TRYING to calm things down between Jill and Ramona at her wine tasting party! You were very calming trying to cool the situation. But to no avail.... Love you and Simon ,and your kids are the cutest!
Alex! Love ya!
I know that I can always rely on your blog for common sense, fairness, and objectivity.
I'm really liking you more and more.
I always feel like you are left out of a lot of things on the show & I realize that this is because you are the most down to earth & intelligent of all of the ladies. It took me a while to find out who I "liked" this season because I was always adored Bethenny but you are really the only likable person in the whole group of girls. I don't know if it's their money that gone to their heads or whatever they inject into their faces but they are all crazy. Keep it up because people adore you. I wish you were able to knock LuAnn down a few pegs, she is so snobby that it is deplorable.
I was very bothered by Luann's calling you a "Debbie downer" for sharing that your father had alzheimers and had passed away when you were eleven. I found that very insensative and shallow and a true reflection of her true character. You are the one with the class Alex.
Alex, I just wanted to say that I thought your "secret" about your father suffering and dying when you were 11 was heartfelt, sweet, and genuine. I truly admire you for opening up about something like that on TV, and I was disgusted by the fact that Luann quickly dismissed such an honest confession! Stay cool and ignore Luann's gibes! (she tries to be classy- but she is really riding you hard!)
