'Real Housewives of NYC' star Alex McCord: nude photos a 'non-issue'
By Christopher Rocchio, 04/21/2008
The Real Housewives of New York City star Alex McCord could apparently care less that some nude photographs of her have found their way onto the Internet.
"It's a non-issue," McCord toldPeople in a Friday report. "I'm one of a billion people out there who has nude photos of themselves. So what."
While McCord said she's "not exactly sure" how the full-frontal nude photos surfaced online, she told People they were taken shortly after the birth of her second son, who is now 2-years-old.
"I did the photos after the birth of our second son," she told People. "I was shocked at how quickly my body came back. I just sort of thought, 'Wow!' At that time I had the opportunity to meet a lot of photographers. And there were a couple of people who asked me to work on... projects."
McCord's husband Simon van Kempen said there is "no point running and hiding" from the nude photos -- especially now that they've made their way online.
"In the day of the Internet, if it's on one web site, it's on 100," he told People. "So own it. Embrace it."
