Alex McCord van Kempen, of TheÂ Real Housewives of New York City fame, will be in Philadelphia on Friday to promote the book she co-wrote with her husband.
McCord van Kempen and Simon van Kempen will appear at theÂ Border’s bookstore in Center City to discussÂ Little Kids, Big City: Tales from a Real House in New York City. Â According to the couples’Â website:
“Writing with unique & humorous insight into the challenges facing city parents today, Alex and Simon use their own hard-won experience as a springboard to discuss a host of parenting topics, including baby s first six months, traveling with infants, hiring caregivers, disciplining, dealing with accidents, dining out, making the most of urban life, & scheduling time for non-urban escapes. A must for fans and parents!”
The flamboyant mother of two told theÂ New York Daily News that she and her husband go out two nights per week. Â And when she was pregnant, McCord van Kempen says she gave in to all cravings, even the alcohol-related kind, and went so far as to drink a glass of champagne on her way to the hospital before giving birth.
Check out McCord van Kempen and her husband at Borders, (1 S. Broad Street) at 12:30 pm on Friday, June 11 to see if this is the kind of advice they offer in their book.
