Do you think Alex has what it takes to walk the walk in the modeling world?

The Real Housewives of New York City star Alex McCord just got a HUGE modeling deal! “I just signed with the celebrity division of New York Model Management,” Alex told HollywoodLife.com exclusively Aug. 26 at the 11th Annual BNP Paribas Taste of Tennis Charity Event at the W Hotel in NYC.

“The director of the agency and Simon and I had all met some years ago at a fashion event. We kept in touch,” Alex said of how she got the contract.

“We kept in touch with him as friends,” Alex’s husband, Simon van Kempen explained. “Until we went out to dinner with him again a month ago, it was never on the radar.”

“It was just something that was brought up and seemed to make sense,” Alex added. “This is all happening literally just now. I’m excited. It seems like a lot of fun.”

“I had a great time walking the runway before,” she told us. (Remember when Alex walked the runway for a charity event in season three?) “I’ve done a lot of photo shoots especially recently for building up this book and I had fun doing that too. I think that usually the way it works is the agent goes to clients and they figure out what models they want to use for what.”

Though no gigs are lined up yet, it doesn’t seem like Alex is that picky about who she works for first. “I love clothing as wearable art. I said that on season one of the show,” Alex said. “There are so many amazing designers that are so creative.”

And at least Simon is super supportive of Alex’s new career. “I’m super proud,” Simon gushed. “An old woman can still be beautiful, look at that!”

“I’m actually the youngest one on our franchise,” Alex jokingly reminded him. “Thank you very much!”

She’s not pretty. I’m sorry, but she’s not a model

I am not an Alex fan after last season’s Real Housewives. She’s become judgmental and narcissistic. When she decided to have a “voice” as she calls it, she went over-board. It’s better to say nothing and keep it to yourself with class than be bitter and angry, which is how she came off. I wish her the best and hope she goes back to who she was before.

The agency director that signed her should be fired. She is not attractive and her personality is stale and phoney.

OMG this woman has lost her mind. She thinks she is going to be a supermodel? If anyone questioned if this woman was delusional before, this is confirmation.
