It seems they've fallen upon hard times. Simon once managed a nice boutique style hotel in NYC but quit and decided reality TV would be his career.
NAUGHTY BUT NICE ROB 05/15 #1 Another reality star is on the edge of filing for bankruptcy after living well beyond their means for a few years. Claiming that expenses from being on the show have pushed them into serous debt, they had no money to buy food! Unable to hold down a regular job since becoming famous, the show did not painted them in not the most flattering light, the only income that has come into the household for some time is from being on reality TV, and now even that is not enough to pay the bills. Other cast members that know about the problems have shown little sympathy. One cast member that is now a multimillionaire, and is currently hiring a lot of staff for a new project, doesn’t even return their calls anymore. If they knew what they do now – they would never have signed up to do the show in the first place!Alex McCord/Simon Van Kempen "Real Housewives of New York"friend: Bethenny Frankel
