One of the main reasons Alex left RHONY is that she no longer lives in New York. After her time on the show, she and her family moved to Australia which is her husband’s home country. The most was definitely a huge adjustment, but they are happy to finally be living near family.

2. She’s Kept In Touch With Some RHONY Cast Members

It’s no secret that reality shows can sometimes create a catty environment where cast members have a hard time getting along. However, Alex was somewhat of a neutral presence during her time on the show and that allowed her to build lasting bonds with the other women. She said, “I keep in touch with some of my former castmates. I’m a really terrible correspondent, but a lot of them are pretty good, so they’ll email me once or twice a year and we’ll have a little back-and-forth.” She added, ” Jill [Zarin]’s a great pen pal. I’ve talked to Sonja [Morgan], Ramona [Singer], Andy [Cohen].”

3. She Was An Actress

Reality TV cameras aren’t the only ones Alex once aspired to be in front of. For a while, she was pursuing a career as an actress. Between 1996 and 2008, she managed to rack up a dozen acting credits. However, she eventually decided to walk away from acting for good.

Even though it’s been a while since Alex’s time on the show, she still has a devoted fan base who likes to keep up with her on social media. On Instagram, she has over 45,000 followers. She loves interacting with her followers and can often be seen responding to people in the comments section.

5. She’s A Psychologist

6. She’s An Author

If you’ve already been impressed with Alex’s accomplishments, get ready for yet another one. She’s also an author.

7. She’s Not Originally From New York

8. She Loves To Cook

For lots of people, cooking is something that is simply done out of necessity. But for Alex McCord and her family, it’s much more than that. Alex loves to cook and it’s become a great way for her to spend time and bond with her family. She often shares the meals she makes on Instagram.

9. She Loves Hanging Out At The Beach

Australia and New York City may be like night and day, but Alex is enjoying her time in Australia. She said, “We’re on the beach almost every day because it is five minutes from the house.” She also shared that there is a marine park nearby and her youngest son loves to go snorkeling there.

10. She Likes To Get Out Of Her Comfort Zone

For most people, moving to the other side of the world would be completely unimaginable. Even if you’re somewhat comfortable with change, a change like that requires a lot of adjusting.
