Bethenny & Season 3, More Housewives Dish August 4, 2009


Bethenny Frankel is someone that I used to be able to handle but I don’t love her anymore.  The biggest reason why is all the blogging she’s done about the other casts/seasons — I’ve tried reading a couple but she comes off as judgmental, harsh, and most of all, bitter.  Some of those things are what caused audiences to love her in the first place, but I’m the first to say that sometimes too much of a good thing is just that: too much.  My hubs was trying to tell me the other day that he read some article that her new pseudo-boyfriend is some type of fraud and isn’t actually an investor or in real estate or whatever it is that this guy supposedly does.  I don’t care enough to Google him, and that’s saying something because 20 minutes ago I tried to Google a Colorado Wildlife commercial to figure out what type of weird bird was featured in it.

So not only are Jeana, Vicki, Tamra, Lynne, and Gretchen back for a fifth season of the Real Housewives of Orange County, but they’re added another blonde bimbette to their sorority.  This one’s name is Alexis Bellino.  She’s a gorgeous mom of 3 with an entrepeneur husband.  I hope for her sake that she gets along better with Tamra and Vicki than Gretchen and Lynne did last season.  They didn’t fare so well…

You’re My Network, Bravo! I Cherish Thee. April 12, 2009


You heard it.  I love Bravo.  I think I watch every show that Bravo has to offer and you know what?  I won’t apologize for it.  I’m not ashamed.  I’m proud.  I’m an out-and-proud Bravo fan and self-proclaimed afficianado of all shows Bravo.  A lot of you likely watch their premiere show, Project Runway, which has the highest audience on the network after 5 beloved seasons.  However, as you may know, it has moved to Lifetime and they will begin airing Season 6 this summer.  If you don’t watch their other offerings, however, may I suggest you begin with some of the following?

real-housewives-of-new-york-season-2It started with Orange County.  Atlanta, preceded by New York City.  And next up: New Jersey, sure to be a trashtastic black hole.   What’s that, you ask?  Why, it’s Real Housewives, a Bravo favorite.  Vicki Gunvalson receives death threats.  Nene Leakes is being evicted from her home.  Countess LuAnn’s husband has found a new Ethiopian Countess and Kelly “Kel-amity” Bensimon has been arrested for assaulting her lover.  Rumors are sure to fly about those Jersey housewives any day now but until the day that I become sucked in, I can’t report ’em just yet.

What I can report is this: I am horribly, insanely, over-the-top hooked on the Housewives.  I have tried converting every chick I know into watching it simply so we can water cooler the next day.  Let’s sound off on a few of my favorite cast members and moments.
