I was thrilled when more and more Real Housewives Cities Joined in the Fun, Drama, and Craziness that seemed to unfold on the shows.
At first I viewed the shows the way that any good anthropologist would.
By examining and analyzing the way that different cultures
grow, develop and interact with each other.
Then reporting on what you have learned.
A few Good qualities that a anthropologist should possess are…
1. Is to be inquisitive about life and society.
2. Have the patience to watch how humans behave.
3. And to be non-judgemental.
I can do all of those things,
but the being non-judgemental kind of takes all the fun out of it.
I mean really…
Who among us doesn’t like to critique?
But now with the suicide of Russell Armstrong, (Beverly Hills Housewives) the whole world seems to be critiquing the Bravo Franchise Future.
I came across a poll today.
Is the Real Housewives show to blame for Russells suicide?
52% say yes 48% say no
Do the producers have a moral responsibility to the cast?
71% say yes..24% say no
Should Bravo cancel the show?
48% say yes…52% say no
Does reality t.v. ruin relationships?
85% yes…12% say no
Would you go on the Real housewives for $50,000?
33% say yes..67% say no
Would you go on the show for a million dollars?
69% say yes…31% say no
The past few months I have heard stories of how Teresa Giudice (New Jersey Housewives) and her husband Joe only made a combined income of $79,000 a year when the show first started. And then filled for bankruptcy for 11 Million dollars a few years later…
How does this happen?
There are never ending stories on the internet about Bankruptcy, Divorce, Foreclosure, and Death involving the Real Housevives shows.
Is there a curse on anyone who dares be in the public spotlight by being on a reality T.V. Show.
I don’t know about a curse, but there sure seems to be a plague of Bankruptcy and Divorce with the Real Housewives…
Sonja Morgan ….. New York
Alexis Bellino….. Orange County
Teresa Guidice… New Jersey
Michaele Salahi ….. Washington D.C.
Lynn Cartin …. Orange County
Vicki Gunvalson…Orange County
Countess Luann de Lessep….New York
Tamra Barney…Orange Country
Camille Grammer….Beverly Hills
Lisa Wu Hartwell…Atlanta
Jeanna Keough…Orange County
Cat Ommanney…Washington D.C.
And Honorable mention for being the next to divorce?
Alexis Bellino…Orange County
Ramona Singer…New York
Teresa Giudice…New Jersey
Lynn Cartin…Orange County
What at first appeared to be a entertaining little show
(that I admit I’m addicted to)
about the lives of the rich and famous
has turned into a bitch fest
of people doing nothing more than trying to out do each other
by either suddenly becoming
writers of tell all books
singers recording really terrible music
designers hocking crappy clothes, jewelry, accessories
wine or other alcoholic drinks
they have put their name on.
WE watch them spending all the money they have
or don’t have on a lifestyle
that is suppose to make us envious?
I guess this formula works pretty well. Just look at the top two reality T.V. shows…
A group of 20 somethings that have been thrown together. We watch them doing nothing more than hooking up…. drinking and looking for trouble.
Keeping up with the Kardashian’s
A dysfuntional family that loves to
fight.. whine .. shop
and frequent expensive restaurants and clubs
while one upping each other to hog the spotlight.
I don’t know about you…but I’m getting really sick of reality T.V.
I’m tired of them trying to convince me I should lust for a life like this.
Is this all just a Evil plan by the T.V Gods?
What do you think?
I’m sorry if I have upset anyone with this post
But think about it…
is it really reality T.V when it’s scripted?
And Is watching a train wreck….Entertainment?
