Real Housewives

"The Real Housewives of" series has been on for several years now. Many people think that it has set women back several years. I don't know if it has anymore than anything else has. I mean after all there is always the Jersey Shore, lol. But in all seriousness, both women and men both engage in serial foolishness and shenanigans from time to time. These shows just seem to magnify the situation. It is entertainment. I'm sure we all know some people who we could put together and make a "Real Housewives of X Sorority" or "Real Housewives of X Job Place". I think it is less harmful if watched by the adult audience that it is intended to be viewed by and not children.


  1. I have tried to watch these shows a few times and just cannot get into them. I guess they are over the line that I have set for myself of what I will and will not watch (not that the line makes much sense - I totally watched the first season of A Shot at Love with Tila Tequila). I think it's the fact they think their lives are actually hard that really gets me - get back to me when you don't have a housekeeper, nanny, cook, etc.
    BTW, Derek J from RHOA went to my high school - I was in marching band with him.

  2. Ha. I haven't watched any of them, but the commercials seem like it could be addictive like any reality shows. They might be setting us back a bit, but it's only b/c they are in the spotlight. I'm jealous that they are rich and don't even do anything.
