Alex McCord is a name I haven’t heard in forever, but she made a random return to Watch What Happens Live and America. Not only that, but Ramona Singer was in the club house as well. It was a combination I never expected to see, but I was here for it.

I’m not really sure why Alex did this appearance since it’s clear that she wants nothing to do with the reality TV life, but the dynamic between her and Ramona was pretty interesting to watch.


Andy Cohen asked Alex, “Do you watch Real Housewives of any city?” And she replied, “Not at all,” which I actually believe. It didn’t seem like she was fronting at all. The one thing that did surprise me was that she said Jill Zarin is the former cast mate that she keeps in touch with most. Alex even said, “She’s such a great pen pal.”

Alex revealed her biggest regret about doing the show was “the loss of privacy – everyone up in your grill all the time,” which explains why the left the country to live in Australia.

Ramona was asked to explain why her face looks so different and she summed it up by declaring, “I gained ten pounds.” Maybe, but I don’t know if that really explains the situation. Then again, that’s none of my business.

Alex was asked which Housewife surprised her the most with what’s happened in her life and she answered, “I hate to see relationships and marriages break up. That always makes me sad and I missed three seasons. I kind of checked out.” So she didn’t really answer the question.

Andy pushed for a specific answer and wanted to know Alex’s take on Bethenny Frankel‘s divorce. Alex admitted, “Actually no I wasn’t surprised, but I was sad about it. I didn’t think that was going to work,” and Ramona could not hold in her laughter as Alex answered.

For some reason Bethenny was a hot topic of conversation and both Ramona and Alex were asked about how she’s changed since they first met her. Alex said, “She hasn’t changed a bit.” Ramona laughed at her answer again, before she said, “I plead the fifth.” Yikes. Ramona added, “I realized with Bethenny you can only talk about what she wants to talk about.” Well, yeah. It’s Bethenny’s world and we are all just living in it-or at least that’s how it comes off most of the time.
