Simon van Kempen hasn’t been on The Real Housewives of New York this season, as Bravo decided to do a massive firing sweep last year. One of the housewives who didn’t survive the sweep was Alex McCord, who was one of the only stars on the show who actually fit into the mold of being a ‘housewife.’ Her husband, Simon, has been very active in the Bravo filming, always making sure that he was a part of the show as he is a part of Alex’s life.
Now that the fifth season of the show is about to air, this former Bravo star is reaching out to fans on Twitter, explaining why he won’t be on the show. One fan reached out to him, asking about the couple’s appearance on this season of The Real Housewives of New York. Simon van Kempen promptly replied that he won’t be on the season. “No, we definitely won’t be. With all the changes it will be an interesting season,” he shared. In addition, he also pointed out just how Bravo isn’t exactly sticking to their ‘housewife’ criteria. “Don’t forget that last season on #RHoNY only 3 out of 7 of the Housewives actually had husbands,” he shared. And it is true; many of the cast members don’t even fit the mold that Bravo originally created.
Now that Simon isn’t part of the Bravo family anymore, he thinks it will be interesting to watch the show from the outside, especially as a person who knows the people on the show personally.
Do you think the upcoming season of the show will be interesting to watch?
