With the introduction and addition of the latest in the “Real Housewives” series known as the Real Housewives of D.C. I have to say that I have finally gotten tired of the whole so-called “Real Housewives” franchise of television shows. I have just started watching the D.C. show and it actually made me feel dirty because I have never seen such a pathetic display of shallow and dishonest behaviour in all of my life. I will be clear, not all of the women on each of these shows bother me, but quite a few do and I do not understand why the producers of these shows don’t understand that all they are doing is insulting the intelligence of their viewers. Let’s address each show on an individual basis shall we?
The Real Housewives of D.C., the newest of the franchise, is with out a doubt the most obnoxious of the lot. I will tell you that I think that Linda, Mary, and Stacy, are, up until this point any way, seemingly genuine people, Cat and Michayel Salahy however are the most pretentious and horrifyingly shallow women that I have ever seen in my life! Sad really because if these women had an ounce of sanity they would understand that because they are on television the chance to further the causes and issues that all women face every day is a blessing that they could take control of and push forward on, therefore helping every one in a positive way.
Cat, with her snotty and judgemental character is enough to make me want to smash my television in, and it has nothing to do with her very deep and droll accent, I have to say though that the accent certainly doesn’t help matters to be sure. Cat acts as if the whole world owes her a daily life of wine and roses and that we all should bend over backwards to please her because it’s her world and we should deem ourselves lucky that she allows us to live on the same planet with her royal smugness. She is about to have a book published about her life and if her behaviour on the show is any indication it will probably be the most boring and mind numbingly stupid book that has come out in a long time. I mean who cares about this woman, and who the hell is she any way? Better yet, why should we care about what she might or might not have to say, for heavens sake, she is hardly anyone’s life coach hahahaha!!! If she is the example of what a “Real” housewife is supposed to be well kill me now because I don’t want to live in a world where Cat stands as someone we need to aspire to be.Even her husband has a problem with her snotty tone, but he’s a big boy, he made his choice so he will have to live with it, the sad part here is that this woman is actually some ones mother! Oh my, if I had her as a mother when I was growing up I would have run for the hills because Cat is truly embarrassing to all women, and the fact that she is raising two daughters is truly frightening! Cat has absolutely nothing to add in a positive or inspiring way to the lives of any one and is totally un-relatable to most of the women on this planet so I will never think enough of her to do any thing more than ignore her.
As for Michayel Salahy, and her ridiculous husband, the two of them make me want to throw up in my mouth! When you watch these two simpletons you cannot help but get the immediate feeling that you are being conned. Terac, if that is his real name, is a jerk, and not even a smart jerk, he is so obvious and so grossly filled with self importance that it actually makes a person feel nauseous. Linda, one of the other wives may be hitting the nail on the head with her developing theory that Michayel is being controlled by this idiot Terac, and a part of me believes that it may not be only about control, but also about abuse and that makes me very sad. The two of them together are wrecking havoc all over D.C. and beyond and the thing about it is that they actually seem to believe that we all believe their act! They don’t pay their bills, they are always putting on a show by plastering on the most phony smiles that I have ever seen, they can’t arrive any where with out putting on a show, and they are liars. Maybe they just don’t get that they are insulting our intelligence and that we see right through them but I think that they do and that they are going to keep shoving themselves down our throats any way because that is what fame whores do. Let me make it clear that if there is any abuse going on in the Salahy relationship that it must end, and apparently the two of them have been fired from the show, but it’s important here that the two of them be totally exposed so that perhaps help can be given and the man I see as a con can be dealt with once and for all. Also, if the producers of this disaster known as the “Real Housewives of D.C.” are aware of any wrong doings by the Salahy’s and they haven’t said any thing because they have profited from the exposure they gave to this couple then they too need to be held accountable.
Now to the “Real Housewives of New Jersey”, my goodness, this set of women are enough to make any one who may be Italian wish that they weren’t! The only two women on this show that make any sort of sense and may be kind of “normal” are Dina and Jacquelyn. Caroline, Teresa, and ( yuck ) Danielle, are absolute nut cases! Yes I am including Caroline in that wacky category. Caroline is like some sort of throw back to a Mafia wife and she truly fancies herself like some sort of family boss in her own mind, it’s ridiculous! Caroline, the enforcer oh my goodness who the heck does she think she is? She gets upset when people try to judge her and pigeon hole the shows participants as “typical” Italians but for heavens sake she is the reason that Italians can’t always get past old stereo types! When she speaks she tries to hold court and says things that make me as an Italian squirm in my chair because she is threatening any one who might not agree with her or her families choices and then she wonders why people have an issue with her? Yo, Caroline, get a grip will yah, you are becoming a joke to Italian women every where and you certainly don’t represent me!
As for Teresa, what a hot mess of a woman she is in my opinion. I feel a bit bad for Joe her husband but not entirely. Joe works his tail off but he also allowed Teresa to spend them all into submission. He is a bit of a puzzle to me because on the one hand he acts like, and appears to be a cave dweller with definite male chauvinist behaviours, and on the other hand he lets Teresa walk all over him in many ways so it’s all a bit on the confusing side. Another thing that disgusts me about these two is that they are teaching their children to be spoiled little morons and that is appalling to me. I am not all that concerned about their oldest child modelling because after observing her she seems to really love it but we do need to be serious here, as this little one gets older things may not work out for her in the modelling world so maybe putting all of your eggs in one basket isn’t the wisest thing to do? All of their kids are terribly spoiled though and I know that they would disagree with that but the kids are just crazy spoiled and I wouldn’t bank on that being a good thing any time soon. The kids throw fits and scream and demand clothes and what ever they want and Teresa and Joe have no one to blame but themselves. These girls are going to be holy terrors as they get older and that’s pretty scary. Joe is in a lot of debt, Teresa spends money like there is no tomorrow, and these children don’t have a hope in hell of dealing with the real world in an honest and responsible way because their parents are living in some sort of twisted fantasy world that will not serve these children well in the future. Shame on you Joe and Teresa, shame on you. I don’t care about your stupid sex lives, nor does it matter to me how much marble and granite that you have in the home that you so clearly cannot afford, what matters to me is the little children that watch every thing going on around them and are going to learn how to behave in the world from the two of you and I truly fear for their futures. Teresa’s hot temper and Joe’s obvious distance from reality which is purposeful is not in any way good for anyone to see.
Danielle, you are a train wreck, filled with self importance which truly exists only in your own mind. You are a crazy person. I feel very, very,bad for the girls because if it’s not clear to them that their mother is a leach who is intending on living off of them and that their mother will bleed them dry as she has every person who has ever had the misfortune of crossing paths with her, it will become clear in the future and that is going to be a very dark day in their lives indeed. I am stunned that you lasted as long as you did on television, and I cannot express how happy I am that you have been fired from the show. You are a woman with no moral compass, that is clear, and you have no idea just what a pathetic display of motherhood that you are. It’s truly a wonder that you think that if you keep telling the world what a good person you are, if you just keep pushing yourself on all of us, if you think that if you say it enough and fight about it enough that at some point we will believe you, my god, you are the very definition of delusional! We all watched as you failed at defending yourself when that so called piece of sleaze of a book came out, and since that time you have just become even more over bearing and full of yourself. You possess no talent of your own so you stick to your children or any one else in hopes of profiting from others hard work. You are such an obvious woman and as phony as a three dollar bill. You were trying to use men as nothing more than wallets but when you became well known and your obvious attempts to find your next source of income failed you then chose to write a book that no one cared about, then the so called dancing and singing began ( ugly ), and when that failed you leached on to your daughter Christine, a shallow attempt to relive some sort of past attempt at a life, and now you are making your own daughters life a living hell. Run Christine run, your mother has no soul and in no way deserves you and your sister as daughters!
Danielle, guess what, no one wants to be your friend because you use people for no other reason than to further yourself and if you don’t get that yet then you are not only selfish, but you are also stupid! You are always the victim, every one is always doing you wrong, poor, poor Danielle, I guess you didn’t get the memo about life that most of us get at one point or another…you get what you give, what goes around comes around, karma, do unto others and all of that. You treat people like S$^% and yet you expect to be treated like gold in return? Please go away and learn that the world owes you nothing, that people are precious, and most importantly, please, please, please for once in your life do the right thing and teach your daughters the importance of integrity!!!
The “Real Housewives of New York”, another example of shallow women who truly have no lives and need to get some. I do believe however that out of all of these shows, if this can be said about any of them, this particular show is, along with the Orange County folks, the most realistic. I don’t really have a lot to say about these women except that the Countess is a pretentious person, Jill is a neurotic woman with issues, Ramona is a loose cannon who thinks her you know what doesn’t stink, Kelly is alright in very small doses but definitely a troubled person, Bethanny has built a brand, worked hard at it, finally found the love and family that she wanted, but Bethanny has become some what of an ego monster and may be headed for a rocky future if she doesn’t put herself in check, and Alex and Simon, as phony as I used to think that they were in the beginning, I have to say now that I find them refreshing when compared to the foo foo ladies that make up the rest of the cast. I would much rather watch Alex, Simon, and their children as they are then to put up with any more of the Countess being so arrogant and phony any day of the week. This version of the very lucrative franchise is best watched rarely if you must hahaha.
The Orange County crew is also best taken with a grain of salt because even though they are in my opinion the most genuine of the ladies, I can only stomach so much of these ladies because too much and my brain begins to shrivel. Vicki drives me nuts because she is so incredibly judgmental, sadly Jeanna left the show but I liked her, Lauri was real and nice to watch, Quinn was a bit of a flake but entertaining, Lynn, well Lynn sort of drives me nuts because she has no idea what is really going on in the world, has a problem being a real mother, and doesn’t seem to care one way or the other, Gretchen is obviously trying to become famous and I just don’t see what value she adds to either the show or the world, and then there is Tamara. Tamara is the queen of drama and also quite blind. Blind because her son is an idiot and needs to have his butt kicked, she is only enabling him and will regret it. Her former husband Simon was a control freak and even when she knew that to be fact she chose to try and work it out rather than leaving sooner than she did. Simon was so clearly upset with Tamara’s changing course because of the show and couldn’t accept that she wanted the attention that the show brought, now she is single again and we are all going to have to hear about her sad story which I am not looking forward to. She is a phony crier, and keeps harping on the fact that her parents divorced when she was twenty five. Hey Tamara, you were twenty five already, give it a rest, how about those of us whose parents split up when we were very young? Stop whining and get a job!!!
Ok, so that’s my take on the Real Housewives, I really cannot see or accept that these shows and the women featured in them represent any thing that is real in my world or the worlds of any of the women I know. Real women that I know don’t spend way too much money on clothes, makeup and surgery, they can’t afford to, and that is real. Real women that I know do not get to go out and party, and travel, and drink champagne with friends and that is real. The real women I know have children who wear them out and cause marital strife and require every ounce of their being at all times and that is real. The real women I know have cheating husbands and cheat on their husbands too and that is real. The real women I know have bills to pay and jobs that they have to do because they do have children and a roof to pay for and they help their husbands and that is real. The real women I know have no help, not even in their own families, and they do every thing from soup to nuts, by them selves and that is real. The real women I know are shocked when some one wants to take their picture and don’t act like it’s so off putting and so laborious and that is real. the real women I know are single too and have more to do each day then some of you do in a month and that is real. The real women I know would love to have the time and energy to give to charity, and they do, but they don’t need to advertise it and that is real. And the real women I know are lovely and wonderful just as they are and they have no need to tell the world how good and decent and strong that they are because i shows every moment of every day and that my friends is REAL!!!
Don’t even get me started on Atlanta hahahahahaha
