What can we say about Simon van Kempen's debut single, I Am Real, while following the Golden Rule? Not every middle-aged white guy has the guts to put on shiny blue pants and belt out his musical passion live for the Internet to devour. He's brave. There, that's nice.
Simon van Kempen is apparently making a run at a second career. The husband ofReal Housewives of New York alum Alex McCord has debuted his first single, I Am Real, by performing live on a tiny stage under a disco ball.
Real Housewives husband Simon van Kempen spit out his hand-crafted rhymes with remarkable sincerity in the roughly two-minute video clip, filmed during Bravo's Watch What Happens Live on Thursday.
A sampling of the lyrics (as best as they could be heard) follows below:
Here in reality I practice duality I kiss and hug
Cause I am a celebrity You know I do my best I dress up to impress but she's causing me stress ... in a cocktail dress
I am real I ain't gonna change I am real I am who I am and that's the deal
I say what I feel and love me or hate me I don't give a damn
Gold and diamond glitter but the taste is slightly bitter when lies attack behind my back they trash me on the Twitter
As I Am Real concludes, Alex McCord joins her husband on stage. Show host Andy Cohen can be heard saying, "Wow, Simon. I can't believe that... that was really something."
