The Real Housewives of New York City’s Simon van Kempen to Release Debut Single

Posted In: Real Housewives, Reality TV

As if The Real Housewives of New York City doesn’t provide enough entertainment already, now one of the reality show’s main men, Simon van Kempen, is busting onto the music scene with a pop and dance track called “I Am Real.”  The single, to be released today at 11 p.m. EST on Bravo TV’s Watch What Happens: Live, takes an ironic look at the reality star and others from The Real Housewives of New York.

Produced by JSM Music in New York City, the track was specifically written about van Kempen’s experience on the hit show and is the first of its kind, according to a press release.  “Not many people know this, but I spent my childhood and early 20’s studying and performing as a musician.  Music has been a huge part of my life, and although I never thought of myself as a singer, I was thrilled and a little nervous when Joel Simon and JSM approached me with idea of creating a song,” said the star.  “More than anything, I wanted the track to be fun, irreverent and to talk about my real experience on the ‘Real Housewives of New York City.’”

Bachelorette couple Ali Fedotowsky and Roberto Martinez can’t wait to tie the knot.  However, according to People, they have yet to announce their wedding date to the public.  Lucky for the groom-to-be, the former reality star is no wedding diva.  “She’s not a bridezilla, thank god,” Martinez said.  “I’d be scared to death if she was, but no, she’s awesome.”  It looks like the world of reality TV can count on one less bridezilla.

Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom may be sickeningly cute on their new reality show, but that doesn’t mean the two don’t have disagreements. E! Online reports that when the couple recently spent some quality time together on a hilltop overlooking Los Angeles, Kardashian brought up her husband’s best friend, Jamie.   The 26-year-old said she thought Jamie was taking advantage of Odom, who was ignoring it because of their friendship.  The NBA pro finally agreed to talk to his pal to sort things out.

Cupid's Pulse Article: Exclusive Giveaway: ‘Shark Tank’s’ Barbara Corcoran Talks Business, Relationships and ‘Shark Tales’
Barbara Corcoran's 'Shark Tales' book cover.

This post is sponsored by Barbara Corcoran.

By Lori Bizzoco

If you’re from New York or a fan of ABC’s reality show Shark Tank, there’s no denying that you’ve heard of Barbara Corcoran, the savvy real estate mogul who started her business with only $1,000 (given to her by an ex-boyfriend) and parlayed it into a billion dollar company.  She now sits among a panel of business tycoons (all men) as they battle it out to invest their hard earned money into the next big idea or product pitched to them by starving entrepreneurs.  For Corcoran, a woman who has been building a business all of her life, she says the show was perfect for her.  More than a successful entrepreneur, she is a wife and mother, something she proudly speaks about.  She says that most of what she learned about business was by watching her mother helm a household of 10 kids.  Her inspiring story is chronicled in her latest book, Shark Tales: How I Turned $1,000 into a Billion Dollar Business.

We had the privilege of speaking with Corcoran, who offered advice to single women who are interested in starting their own career.  She also shared what she’s looking for when choosing a new business.  The answers may surprise you; it’s not all about the numbers. Take a look at what she had to say:

Looks like we have another teen star domestic violence dispute on our hands. E! Online reported Tuesday that another young mom from the newest season of MTV’s reality TV show gave her baby daddy an Amber-Portwood-esque bashing … but it’s her dad who was taken away in handcuffs. Jennifer del Rio, who delivered twin boys last October, is seen screaming, “Say goodbye to your kids, Josh, because you will never see them again!” in the trailer for season 3 of 16 and Pregnant.  It’s so much drama, and show doesn’t premiere until April 19!

Another Kardashian, another reality show!  Access Hollywood reports Khloe Kardashian and hubby Lamar Odom are currently promoting their new E! show, Khloe & Lamar.  But with reality TV’s long history of ruining relationships (like Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey or Carmen Electra and Dave Navarro), the couple are taking a chance by letting cameras film every moment of their personal lives.  However, Kardashian insists that the show has actually strengthened her family’s bond. “This show has made [my family] closer and stronger, because it does make you spend time with each other, and also, this show is therapy to us.” She added that watching herself on camera has helped her become a better person.  “We do watch things and when we watch them we’re like, ‘Oooh – I hated how I treated you,’ or, ‘I hated how I said that,’ and you learn to mature and change yourself.”

If you want to know the key ingredient to winning (no Sheen pun intended), look no further than last summer’s Bachelor Pad winners: Natalie Getz and David Good.

Even though these two former contestants didn’t strike a love match on their respective Bachelor-franchise seasons, this dynamic duo made their mark as the first couple to win the ABC spin-off reality show, Bachelor Pad, where 19 past contestants competed for a grand prize of $250,000.

Throughout the show’s run, this couple focused on making their way to the finish line.  If there’s anything we can learn from watching Getz and Good, it’s that three important traits are needed to keep any relationship moving forward: loyalty, trust and friendship, which they exemplified.  While most romantic couples aren’t competing for anything but each other’s hearts, these elements can have you and your partner come out winning too – whether it’s for love, marriage or happiness.

Cupid had the opportunity to speak with Natalie and David about love, dating and how their lives have changed since Bachelor Pad ended.  Read on to see what they had to say:

Brad Womack is no rookie when it comes to proposing. This season’s eligible bachelor has, according to ex-girlfriend Laurel Kagay in an UsMagazine.com article, proposed to her countless times. Kagay said the most recent proposal was just weeks before he left to film this season’s show.  “Even when we weren’t together, he would say how much he loved me and was going to marry me,” she said.   While filming, Kagay said Womack would send her emails. “I’m sure the girl he picked would want to know that he was proposing to another woman right before he started taping the show,” she said. “I would want to know.”

Although Gabriel Aubry and Kim Kardashian’s recent romance fizzled soon after it began, People reports that Halle Berry was not happy to see her ex out with a reality TV star. Aubry, 35, and Kardashian, 30, took in a Lakers game and a movie in late November before calling it quits. Halle Berry, 44, who split with the French Canadian model last year, was angry about the relationship because of her daughter, according to a source close to the actress. “Halle was very upset… She just didn’t want Nahla exposed to the cameras that are undoubtedly around a reality star.” But Aubry had no intention of bringing someone new into his daughter’s life right away. “Gabriel wanted to make sure he dated someone for six months before he introduced them to his daughter,” says the source.

So for us two to come together, it would be a very strange meeting of the minds or colliding of two worlds.”
