The 'Real' versions of Carrie and Co.

The â€œReal Housewives of New York Cityâ€ like to be a little â€œSex and the City.â€
After five of the six â€œRealâ€ ladies hit Wall St. yesterday to ring the bell at the New York Stock Exchange, we couldnâ€™t help but draw comparisons to an episode of the hit HBO show in which Carrie Bradshaw did the very same. Naturally, the â€œHousewivesâ€ couldnâ€™t help themselves, either.
Jill Zarin was the first to point a finger. â€œLuAnn would be Samantha!â€ she chirped of Countess de Lesseps, who is separated from hubby Alexandre. â€œSheâ€™s like ... hot.â€ Chimed in Ramona Singer, â€œAnd she likes lots of sex!â€ De Lesseps simply laughed off the comparison, responding, â€œIâ€™m adventurous!â€
Alex McCord relates to Miranda Hobbs â€” â€œIâ€™m no-nonsense,â€ she quipped â€” while Kelly Bensimon thinks sheâ€™s more of a mix. â€œIâ€™m both Charlotte and Carrie,â€ she said.
But Zarin begged to differ. â€œYouâ€™re a writer! Youâ€™re Carrie!â€ she yelled over the noise from the floor.
â€œOkay, fine,â€ Bensimon sighed dramatically, rolling her eyes in Zarinâ€™s direction. â€œIâ€™m Carrie.â€
Singer, meanwhile, thinks that none of them can be just one character alone. â€œIâ€™m like Carrie â€” I put my foot in my mouth all the time,â€ she said. â€œBut Iâ€™m Samantha, too, because Iâ€™m very business-oriented.â€
Laughed McCord, â€œWe all have a little Samantha in us!â€
The ladies all feel that they should make an appearance in the upcoming â€œSATCâ€ sequel. Said the countess with a smile, â€œWeâ€™re their kind of girls.â€
