On last night's third installment of The Real Housewives of New York Reunion , host Andy Cohen asked Alex McCord how she felt about the fact that all the women this season accepted Kelly Bensimon and Bethenny Frankel posing naked -- when Alex herself received so much flak when her own nude photos surfaced on the Internet in Not surprisingly it was Jill Zarin -- not Alex -- who rudely weighed in on the issue at hand Jeez, Jill. How do you really feel? Why don't you just save us from having to read in between the lines and call her trash like we know you want to? Admittedly, Kelly's nude photos for Playboy and Bethenny's for PETA were much more, uh, produced, which could be a reason why these two women were celebrated for their photos and Alex was scorned. Also, some reports say that the cast members were uncomfortable that Alex's photos were shot so soon after she gave birth to her son. But it's weird, right?
When it comes to the naked truth, Simon and Alex McCord are throwing up their hands and saying, "Big deal! Though the topic of naughty pictures may fly on the reality show, politics and holidays do not fare the same. The super successful franchise encourages its dozens of cast members to reveal as much about themselves and others as possible, but slip into political territory and the director will call "cut" faster than you can say "Ramona Singer Pinot Grigio. But one topic that has always been on the table is success. Both Alex and Simon agree that the most successful housewife is Bethenny Frankel, who went from worrying about paying rent for her studio apartment to being a multi-millionaire. But when it comes to the "Housewives," success is always a priority, even if it means throwing a fellow cast member under the bus or, in their case, in a pool or an air conditioning duct.
But it turns out her lawyer minds. A lot. So why the sudden change of heart about the Kubrickian pictorial?
Alex McCord's nude photos were a hot topic of discussion during the final part of the Real Housewives of New York City season 3 reunion. The photos, which were first leaked online 2 years ago, show the mother of two posing nude in various locations. InTouch magazine did an article on the pictures two years ago during which Alex said she was not ashamed of the photos. What's odd is all of the photos showing actual nudity seem to have disappeared off the net.
