Real Housewives of New York

Alex McCord Claims Bravo Threatened Her to “Put a Lid on” Her Revealing RHONY Video Blogs: Report

Former The Real Housewives of New York star Alex McCord claims that Bravo executives are so unhappy with her juicy video blogs that they wrote her a “strong-worded letter” last week, asking Alex to “put a lid on it.”

Every Tuesday, after an episode of RHONY Season 5 airs the night before, Alex recaps the episode in video format for RumorFix. We always look forward to Alex’s vlogs, because she includes details and commentary on how certain scenes and get-togethers are “set up” by producers and crew members.

But after Alex sent Bravo a letter regarding a separate issue — she objects to Bravo’s alleged “Top 20 Reunion Moments” special in the works because she and other stars won’t receive royalties — the NY Daily News reports that “the network fired back their own [letter to Alex].”

Alex claims that in Bravo’s letter they basically said “they didn’t like my RumorFix videos.” We can see why. Personally, we’ve found her insight enlightening, and they do change the way we watch Real Housewives shows now.

Alex tells the NYDN, “Everything I discuss on RumorFix is coming solely from watching the show, plus the general experience of having been on a reality show for four years.”

With all the talk of being “inauthentic” and “phony” on these shows lately, we can appreciate Alex’s efforts to pull back the curtain.

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