“Watching this season, you can now see, ‘Oh, I know what they did here,’ like when Aviva and Reid arrive in St. Barts. It was daylight! When they arrive at the house, it was dark. And by then Sonja and Ramona were drunk. And that’s why they kept them waiting in a hotel room, so Ramona and Sonja would get sloshed,” said Simon.
Alex added, “This is where it's a whole new career path for reality TV people. Because once you've done four years of a show like that ... it's so easy to see what's going on and how these scenes come together.”
Alex’s vlogs on the season, of course, have been very handy in pointing out these sort of behind-the-scenes anecdotes, and she admitted that after being fired from RHONY and originally intending to fully “cut the cord” from the Housewives, Alex has found her little post-episode vlogs to be “a great healing process” for her.
