The stars of the hit Bravo show have long poked fun at Simon's love for shopping and pampering. On the recent reunion show, Jill Zarin even told Simon's wife Alex McCord that Simon is gay - he just doesn't know it yet.

"If other manifestations of gay means that I like to wear nice clothes and go shopping, then I guess that's fine!" he told Us. "I love fashion, but I love my beautiful wife. That makes me gay?" He then quipped, "I mean, I've worn Speedos” therefore, I must be gay!"

"Hopefully, in season three we can get over that," he told Us. "I am Simon, I am not anything more than that. I'm just a loving husband."
