The Daily News had some real Brooklyn housewives weigh in on Bravo’s The Real Housewives of New York City, with a particular focus on Alex McCord, the only housewife with a Brooklyn address. The real Brooklyn housewives aren’t buying the lavish homes in the Hamptons and single women traipsing around as “housewives” as a true depiction of what New York City wives and mothers are like.
As a resident of Cobble Hill and the only cast member living in the borough, McCord is scarcely seen mingling with the other neighborhood moms. That’s too bad, too, because she does list herself as being proficient in the “Brooklyn” dialect on her résumé.
“She doesn’t hang out in our circles,” says Carroll Gardens neighbor Carolyn Pravda. “I’ve never seen her in the park, and I’ve just about had a play date with every mom in the neighborhood. You do see some of the movie stars here, but not this reality TV person?”
