Alex McCord Says Real Housewives of New York Was A "Train Wreck"

Sounds like one former Brooklyn 'Housewife' is still a little bitter about recently getting the boot:
Alex McCord and leather-pants-loving hubby Simon van Kempen have blasted their former Bravo series as a “train wreck” and “faux reality show.”

Having been dumped from the “Real Housewives of New York City” after four seasons, they’re currently trying to launch their own show, according to an e-mail sent to friends. “While we were sad to lose the dollars . . . we weren’t sad to be off that particular show,” it reads. “Now that we are free-and-clear of our Bravo contracts, we have been meeting with . . . just about every cable network as well as a couple of the main networks.”

They’re asking pals to join a new show, possibly called “Based in Brooklyn,” about 30-something parents in “Brownstone Brooklyn.” “We would never expose ourselves to another faux reality show,” they wrote.

When we asked McCord if she’d sell “Brooklyn” to “train wreck” home Bravo, she said, “I don’t know, I hadn’t, that doesn’t mean I wouldn’t, it’s not just me either if we did this it would be Simon and me together.”
