While Jill Zarin and Alex McCord are officially out of the Real Housewives of New York City, they won’t go quietly into that famewhore night and continue to draw attention to themselves, no matter what. We’ll start with the grossest news. Somehow, Alex was able to get press for a very odd passage in her “urban parenting” book, which was released two years ago, Little Kids Big City. They weren’t getting enough hate messages on Twitter, so they decided to promote the passage below, describing husband Simon VanKempen‘s reaction to the au naturale birth of son, François. Alex describes her natural birth as:
“Once he was finally out of my body, I experienced a tsunami of endorphins that was almost orgasmic and I understand completely the stories other women have written about ecstastic birth. Simon was sitting behind me at the point of birth, and later when we untangled ourselves he discovered he’d actually ejaculated though hadn’t felt any of the normal lead-up to that.”

How’s that for utterly disgusting? I’m honestly just surprised they are still shilling this book. Another who needs to stop promoting her un-popular printed book is Jill, who desperately needs a social media manager or some kind of tech vacation. In a move that is completely coincidental, Jill recently tweeted the following (while this Monday’s Bethenny Ever After was airing): “I’m watching a TV show realizing how lucky and grateful I am to be married to Mr. Bobby Zarin, the love of my life, my biggest supporter.”
I’m sure Jill was not referring to the footage of Bethenny Frankel‘s troubled marriage, a huge plot point on the third season of her show. Jill’s Twitter haters came out in full force, and immediately accused her of referring to Bethenny and Jason Hoppy. Jill denied, but the sneaky never change their stripes, and this kind of passive aggressive comment is what people like Jill do constantly. Bethenny didn’t stay out of the argument, tweeting to a fan, “People are desperate.”
Giving up on her denial, Jill tweeted directly to Bethenny, trying to smooth things over: “@bethenny we (bobby,ally and I ) will always be here if you need us. But you always knew that right? Ally told me you spoke. I was happy.” It’s definitely too late, and the damage is done. Jill, put the Twitter down, and get some help. As the ladies of Atlanta say, “do you.” You’re rich, have a husband that adores you, and endless free time. Go back to playing tennis and going to lunch.
Finally, some news on an actual cast member, Countess LuAnn de Lesseps! Naughty But Nice Rob writes that LuAnn is not only still with her David Swchimmer look-alike boyfriend, but she’s hoping to get pregnant! She says, “We are thinking about it, and you will have to watch to see what happens. The good news is, I still can have children.”
I’m really hoping this doesn’t mean that we have to watch yet another ridiculous Housewives pregnancy past 40 storyline. Will LuAnn pee on a stick for us or take a pregnancy test in the middle of a party. That’s not very classy. And, how does LuAnn know she can still have children?
When asked about her old castmates, LuAnn says “I do miss them. We are together for four seasons, so we made friendships, and of course I will always miss the girls.” Aww, how sweet. She does add that she “gets along” with the new ladies, but still wants to slap Ramona Singer. Or, as she puts it, “still has her issues.”
WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THE EXCERPT FROM ALEX’S BOOK? DO YOU THINK JILL WAS REFERRING TO BETHENNY IN HER TWEETS? THOUGHTS ON LUANN’S PREGNANCY HOPES?
