'Real Housewives' Star Alex McCord Breaks Down the 'RHOM' Premiere Like You’ve Never Seen Before (VIDEO)

alex mccordGreetings, Stir-crazy friends! I’m thrilled to join the community and stir up some trouble in the world of reality TV.

Join me each week for a new exclusive video, where I break down what we saw, what we didn’t see, how these shows are put together behind the scenes, and what I think will be the major stories of this coming season.

Let’s get started with The Real Housewives of Miami, as its third season premiered last night on Bravo. Miami holds a special place in my heart; it’s unlike any other of the Real Housewives franchises in several ways. The biggest? It’s unapologetically superficial with all the ladies doggedly pursuing money and beauty ... which, in a strange way, is refreshing. I’ll have my bling without the guilt, please!!

We’ve got weddings and bridezillas, the heartbreaking medical condition of Alexia Echevarria’s son Frankie, plus the legal troubles of her other son Peter, both of which add up to a LOT for one mama to handle! Plus, is Adriana de Moura really married, and why is she pretending she’s not? Does Lea Black lie all the time or just part of the time? Or are her frenemies in fact lying about her? Will Marysol Patton’s Mama Elsa come back? 

More from The Stir: Lea Black Has It Out for Adriana De Moura

All of this comes with a fashion parade, sun, palm trees, plus a major helping of lies, backstabbing, and scheming. What could be better?? Take a look at my in-depth recap:

Do you think Adriana is really lying about being married? What was your favorite RHOM premiere moment?

Real Housewives of New York alum Alex McCord is TheStir.com's newest guest blogger. Each week, the NYC mom of two will dish about the catfights, feuds, and behind-the-scenes scoop on all your fave Real Housewives. Watch for more to come!

Alex did a great job.  Lots of personality.  Doesn't seem like the rug the other ladies used to wipe their feet on anymore.  YAY Alex.

Alex I love this! I want to see you talk about all the housewife shows like this! I have been a watcher from day one in oc, I want to know from your experienced eyes, what is really really real, what is set up, or half fake and what is Fake.

What went on behind the scenes in scary island with Kelly? Or did you sign something, so you can't?

Alex is AWESOME at this job. I LOVE hearing her recap/take on these shows. She's WAY better at this than she was as a housewife. Looks like you've found your calling Alex!

I love your Bling! I love to tape the show and wait till your video is up then watch the show then your rap up of it ! I feel like girlfriends talking about the show! You always see a few things I miss cause you don't miss a thing! Great job ! Love watching your video on youtube now,because it plays better before your lips and words never matched up. My God did they all have major plastic surgery touch ups or what! The one that is always saying she wants to get pregnant should stop all the boob jobs gain some weight I can see her ribs! and she needs to put down the drinks! That's why she can't get pregnant. I'll be waiting for your next wrap-up.
