    Anyone watch any of 'The Housewives of' on Bravo? Trainwrecks, all of them, but so strangely mesmerizing...:whistle:

    I've seen very, very little "in passing" and wasn't mesmerized. :)

    It's my secret, sad addiction. LOL. I don't miss any of them. I love New York, NJ, OC, Atlanta... not a big fan of Miami or Beverly Hills.

    Man, those Beverly Hills ladies are SUPER rich. They have the money of all the others combined! :)

    I'm a huge Bethanny fan, and I watched Bethanny Ever After, too.

    I've watched something quite insane. Now, it's not like I watch it religiously, but...oh, geeze, I shouldn't even share this. Just the name lets you know it's over the top, much like I believe these housewives shows are. But I here I go: Jerseylicious.

    I like the OC, NJ, and NYC. For some reason, I have no interest in tht others.

    Of course you do! We're soul sisters! LOL

    Have you read her book A Place of Yes? It's pretty good. I bought it because I love her, but it's not a must have.

    I'll be watching the new episode tomorrow. Ramona seriously scares me. If I saw her on the street of NYC I think I'd run the other way LOL
    I watch NJ sometimes and someone needs to tell Teresa that "ingredientses" isn't a real word.

    So funny...we were talking about ingredientses at lunch today:lol:

    Last week Ramona said something about one of the other wives 'telling an antidote'.

    Idiots.

    There was a blurb in Women's World magazine last month that highlighted some of their quotes. Another one of Ramona's was "She makes a mountain out of a hole mill" LOL

    I've had it on as background noise in the past, well, recent past. I'm confused though. One, are these actual, separate tv shows, or is it one tv show that goes from OC, to NYC, to Atlanta, etc? I don't really watch a lot of reality shows. Is there a point to this show, or is it just following the lives of rice, bored housewives?

    On the Orange County wrap up show, I think Tamara said "cyst and decease order" instead of 'cease and desist'.:woot:

    I DO have to wonder though... If someone filmed US, would WE be just as crazy as these women? Of course we would not have the over the top money, homes, etc. But I wonder, if the camera were placed on me all day - everyday - would I come across as slightly mental too? I think we are all just a little crazy folks. We just don't have a camera in our faces to prove it to the rest of the world. Perhaps we are so drawn to these women and their over the top lives because on some level we can actually identify with them? And yes, I , too, am guilty of the Housewife addiction. The first step is admitting you have a problem.
