This season of The Real Housewives of New York has been filled with the faint stench of Pinot and fabulousness, but not gonna lie: We miss Alex McCord. The housewives just aren't the same without her calling them "thugs in cocktail dresses" — a phrase which Alex once profited from thanks to this classy novelty line.

So, are you dying to know what else this feisty gal is up to? Alex currently lives in Cobble Hill, Brooklyn, with her hubby Simon van Kempen and their two kids, and she's president of a bedding and bath linen company called Aluxe Home. She also gets her blog on for The Huffington Post, and you can check out her latest article, "Drunk Parenting...Yes or No"! (Side note: We really hope her answer is no...)

Alex was fired from Bravo's Real Housewives love nest, but she recaps the current season (and gives "inside scoop") in weekly videos for Rumor Fix. Girlfriend has all the answers! Clearly, Alex can't get enough of the camera, and she currently co-hosts Coffee Shop Confessions on Café Mom’s YouTube channel, where she girl-talks about lady problems. 

According to her bio on The Huffington Post, Alex is in the "celebrity division" of New York Model Management (we've seen this lady walk the beach runway –– she ain't kidding), and she and Simon are Ambassadors for Style Week Providence in Rhode Island. You know, because of how well-dressed they are. 

You can follow Alex on Facebook and Twitter, and if you feel the sudden urge to hear her dulcet tones over the phone, you'll be thrilled to know that she and Simon are on Dial-A-Star. Dreams do come true!
