'Real Housewives of New York City' Simon van Kempen has also found his voice


Until Bravo greenlights Real Househusbands of Topeka, the better halves from our favorite regional guilty pleasures will continue to remain (mostly) in the background, used sparingly for comic relief  or (in attempts) to stop hair-pulling before it happens.

On The Real Housewives of New York City, LuAnn de Lesseps astutely observed that the once sheepish Alex McCord has now “found her voice” this season, and it appears so has her husband Simon van Kempen. The Aussie has had his own battles with Jill Zarin, Ramona Singer, and Sonja Morgan over the years, but now has decided to follow the “if you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em” Housewives mantra by embarking on a music career. Yes, Simon is bringing the voice inside his heart to the masses with his single “I Am Real,” a “tongue-in-cheek” take on his life in the Bravolebrity bubble that manages to use his wife’s now infamous one-liner: “You know I do my best/I dress up to impress/But she’s causing me stress/Thug in a cocktail dress.” Expose your eardrums to greatness by listening below. 

What would LuAnn say, PopWatchers? Is this classy or trashy? Simon will debut the song (hopefully while wearing those red leather pants) tonight on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live. Fingers crossed that Juicy Joe Giudice’s first album isn’t far behind.

    I appreciate my sense of hearing far too much to subject it to that.

  • Taylor

    I will not, I repeat, I will not!

  • Anna

    LMAO! I think it’s cute.
    “Beware those daggers
    Cheeky tongue waggers
    Too many two faced
    You’ve got to have your swagger.”

    How can you love this?

  • Amy

    I LMAO when Alex told Andy Cohen on WWHL that she and Simon are both “musical.” Musical isn’t exactly the word I thought of when I heard this monstrosity.

    NY, Kelly I’m convinced she is a man in drag, trust me “she” can be in drag. The great drag Queens can hide anything. She is trying to hard to be feminine she has to be a man. She is so unaware of everything around her she can’t be a women. No one is that self absorbed.

  • Lydiann Cox

    I thought it was pretty darn good. And I’m not even a big fan of them.

  • Phyllis

    RHofNY==very boring this year.

  • Bloshka

    My ears bled. And the video makes me want to poke my eyes out with a fork.

    One thing is that at last we know that Simon considers himself a reality star. Isn’t his wife supposed to be the reality star?

  • GeeMoney

    It’s a catchy song, but I’m still convinced that Simon is GAY GAY GAY!

  • Joe Williams

    Wow…. Who knew he could be mixed into a real song?

    He is an odd man, but entertaining and has a good heart.

  • Joe Williams

    Well…. They were the couple most supportive of Gay Marriage!
