Guilty Pleasure

Friday, May 14, 2010

Even though I don't watch as much 'crap' tv as I used to, I still try to find opportunities to watch almost any of the Real Housewives series on Bravo (with the exception of the ATL). thaKing groans, but is never surprised, to find the last channel viewed  on any tv in the house was Bravo.  Last nights RHONY episode showed the ladies, sans Jill and the Countess, going to the US Virgin Islands for Ramona's renewal bachelorette party on a yacht.  Really? Stuck on a yacht with Ramona!  I digress.  Kelly initiated some nonsensical yelling and ranting towards Bethenny, basically because Bethenny was human and has emotions.  Although Bethenny has published several books on healthy cuisine, Kelly states that Bethenny is not a chef but just a cook, since she has never worked for anyone she knows.  Hmmmm, cognitive dissonance disorder?  Bethenny, who is witty and acerbic, called Kelly the most unintelligent person she’s ever met.  I am in total agreement!  I represent a lot of crazy people and I think Kelly is crazy!  I can't wait to catch part II next week!  Hopefully, thaKing will be out again so he doesn't have a seizure from watching.

I confess, I watched some of the original "Real Housewives of Orange County," mainly to see how stunningly materialistic these people were. I think what has always astounded me is that these women nearly always have children, and damned if they haven't dragged these kids down to their level of narcissism and vapid behavior. I stopped some time ago and haven't developed the desire to watch any of the other "Real Housewives" franchises since.

I'd bet none would last very long if forced to live a normal existence like you and me, but that's probably why watching them is compelling.

Now, if you like this, there's a show on HGTV called "Selling New York" that you'll enjoy--half-hour of New York-oriented real estate dilemmas, and I don't mean a one-bedroom third-floor wallkup, either. Give it a look!
