Real Housewives of New York

Report: Alex McCord and Simon van Kempen are Returning to Reality TV!

Ever since Jill Zarin, Kelly Bensimon, and Alex McCord were booted from The Real Housewives of New York after Season 4, they’ve each flirted with getting back in the spotlight. Now, it seems that Alex and her camera-friendly husband Simon van Kempen will be the first fired Housewife to land a new reality gig.

According to the Huffington Post, the infamous couple known as “Silex” will join the cast of VH1’s Couples Therapy. The reality show documents the real-life marriage problems of celebrities like Linda Hogan, DMX, and former Jersey Shore star Angelina. Each famous couple undergoes couples therapy with a group of relationship experts.

But what possible problems could Alex and Simon have? One of the reasons viewers found Alex grating was because of her creepy devotion to her oddball husband, who loves flashy fashion and bad-mouthing anyone who dares to criticize the van Kempen tribe.

A source tells HuffPo that “for a couple of days last week, [Alex and Simon] were being trailed by a film crew, both in Manhattan and Brooklyn. Cameras were seen loading in and out of their Brooklyn brownstone, and they shot in at least one restaurant. It was just them with no other cast members involved.” But Alex and Simon claim they were simply shooting a family Christmas video. Is that a normal thing to do in July?

We’ll have to tune in to learn about the cracks in Alex’s otherwise perfect life, because so far, we don’t see ‘em!

The Real Housewives of New York airs Mondays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Bravo.
