The real housewives of...???

I am just enjoying a holiday around the house and ended up in front of telly in the afternoon where I normally never am (due to work and life).

Started to watch "the real housewives of orange county", was really getting in to the story of todays episode

(blond1 is at dinner party without husband and ruins the whole thing because of missing him, blond2 has an ex husband who doesn't pay child support, blond3 is mad at husband because he never adopted her kids and all blonds (six of them?) are bitching about each other at the same bloomin party...)

and caught my self of actually recording the series!!!
how utterly stupid, shallow and addictive it is, absolutely incredible!

Do other people actually follow that stuff on a regular base?

You ain't seen nothin' 'til you've feasted your eyes on the glorious tackiness that is the Real Housewives of New Jersey.

No, but my OH said, it's quite realistic, which makes it even more scary...

I lived in "The OC" for 7 years and it certainly isn't representative of the county, but it is entertaining! I caught an episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta when in the US a few years ago and it's just as outrageous.

Top Tip: If you watch it in the morning it's followed by Real Housewives of New York City....even more backstabbing! And with a Contessa.

Seeing the ratings the shows get, the additions of new shows in different cities, and the posts here, I'd say they have a huge following. Wonder what they'd get if they did a real housewives of Zürich, for example?

Yep!! I watch TRHO Beverly Hills, OC and Miami, the other ones are not so interesting. Oh and if you are really really bored, watch Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, you won't believe your eyes.

I don't watch that trash. And to add to TOWIE apparently there's Geordie Shore. Only watching Beavis & Butthead demolish Jersey Shore makes this stuff palatable.

Re: The real housewives of...???

I had to go and get a job to break the addiction to these programmes! I would question why I was watching them and still have the inability to turn them off!
