'Real Housewives of New York' Husband Releases Single -- Listen Now!

Now the husbands of the "Real Housewives" are getting in on the music biz -- as "Real Housewives of New York" star Alex McCord's hubby Simon van Kempen just released his first single.

Listen at your own risk:

With lyrics like "When wives attack behind my back, they trash me on the Twitter" and "I am who I am and that's the deal," his song "I Am Real" landed on iTunes today.

In a press release for the release, Simon says "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.' The title and lyrics are cheeky but hey, that's the REAL me!"

Van Kempen is the first househusband to release a song -- following in the footsteps of housewives Countess LuAnn, Danielle Staub and Kim Zolciak.

Sound off below!

Well, the first one who can sing. It is simple, but has a good hook. Should of had LuAnn for a man's voice--hehe. Simon can sing and the song, not that bad!! I guess leave the fighting to the women(or woman for Danielle) and the singing for the men of the Bravo shows!!

A fun song. Way to go Simon! It's about time that not just the Housewives are milking their celebrity.

I am not a fan of this man and I took a listen prepared to hate this song and leave some snarky feedback.'s really not that bad given what it is.

Ok, he's not a pro, but the lyrics are clever, his voice has a good tone and he's on pitch, the arrangement could be criticized for being over-produced but I thought it was a good arrangement even though that's not a genre of music I particularly like.

All in all - it's not a bad song at all.

I gotta say, well done, Simon. Very well done.
I know, I know. What can I say?
