Real Housewives of NYC Castmember Simon van Kempen’s Club Banger Unleashed on Unsuspecting World

April 26, 2011

It seems pretty logical that a guy who is best known for starring on a reality show about housewives, loves clothes shopping and wears leather pants would release a club banger.

Yup, Simon van Kempen former hotelier now social media maven and husband of Real Housewives of New York City’s Alex McCord makes his musical debut this week with a ditty called (naturally) “I Am Real”.   While it’s not “Tardy for the Party” or “Money Can’t Buy You Class”, van Kempen’s track could very easily have been a hit in the mid-80s alongside Haysi Fantayzee or Dead or Alive.   The track could be said to be the 21st century equivalent of “The Ballad of John and Yoko” with its cheeky jabs at the spoils of celebrity.

As for van Kempen, he thinks he more like  Jarvis Cocker than John Lennon.   In that case, might he offer a cover of Pulp’s “Common People” as his sophomore single?
