Alex McCord Gives an Update on Her New Career

Fans of The Real Housewives of New York City have watched the demise of many relationships over the course of the show, but Alex McCord and Simon van Kempen's marriage continues to thrive. The two have moved away from reality TV (and out of the country), but her latest interview with The Daily Dish podcast gave us some insight into her own relationship, along with her reactions to fellow Housewives Bethenny Frankel and Ramona Singer's divorces.

"Our marriage secret is, first of all, we came into it as equals, which not everybody else did," Alex says. "Second, our priority is always each other. I think there’s even a chapter in our book, 'We Were Here First.' Before the show, before anything else, we always choose each other over whatever else is happening. I think that’s the secret."

When speaking of Ramona and Bethenny's divorces, Alex said, "It’s always sad to see marriages fall apart. Again, I think you need to go into it as equals, which I don’t think was the case with Bethenny and Jason. With Ramona and Mario, that just made me sad, because I just like them both. I don’t know everything that happened in that, but I hope that they can put the bad stuff behind them and find ways to keep on living life."
