"This new venture was cemented when we visited Nile Textile Industries to ensure that we were happy with its quality, professionalism and working standards for its employees."
Bitter and negative much?! WOW! Who cares if she has or hasn't been an interior designer. Sad to say that the media followers may choose her, but people will ultimately choose what they like, and that goes for an interior designer. You have to feel like the person you're entrusting your money and home style to is well matched with your vision.Dawne - 2012-06-04 14:40:02 EDT
Alex McCord is not an interior decorator. She never has been. She was a grade D-list actress with some random bit parts spread over ten years. Her main job was as graphic designer with Vic. Secret for a few years and then she was laid off.

Aluxe Home is financed by the couple that own's Willoughbys, a camera store in Muray Hil. It is just up the street from the small Hotel Chandler than van Kempen used to manage.
Whatever may be their line of goods, McCord has no experience whatsoever in our business and she was brought on thinking that she would not be fired from Real Housewives, as she was, and that would get them free publicity.
It's fine to promote new lines, but really, anyone with a computer knows she's never decorated a thing in her life beyond her living room in Brooklyn.
