Alex McCord Gives an Update on Her New Career

Alex McCord and Simon van Kempen shocked fans of The Real Housewives of New York City when they announced they were moving to Australia. It seemed out of character considering the first two seasons of RHONY focused on the couple's desire to become part of NYC society. So why the big move?

"Although New York City is sort of the place that I grew up as an adult, I moved here at 23, it’s really important to constantly challenge yourself and broaden your horizons," Alex told The Daily Dish podcast. "The kids were born here. If you’re born and raised and never leave, then you’re in a bubble. So we kind of got out of it."

Her sons, Francois and Johan are now 13 and 11. She says Australia is "fantastic" and that they're now near Simon's family.
