First of all I have some newsflashes. "Real Housewives of NYC" as well as O.C. are both returning. I am very happy to hear that-since as you know, I am sadly intrigued by both these shows! But that's not all...have you heard about the LATEST Housewives show? Get this..."The Real Housewives of New Jersey!" They didn't even ask me to be on it! WTF? The show focuses on....and I quote..."five wealthy "McMansion"-living suburbanites who navigate the chilly ennui of leaves falling from the trees every autumn and the first blush of crocuses in the springtime." Or something like that...You KNOW I'll be watching that one. Yippee!!!
I finally got to watch the final episode of "Real Housewives of NYC." I haven't commented on the show for quite awhile, so I'll give a general overview.
I've got to start with Alex and Simon. There is something seriously off with these two. Where the hell are their priorities? They buy $5,000 dresses-but their house is trashed. Their sons speak 4 languages...but they SHRIEK at social events and are allowed to stab other people's dinners with their toys! Oh and by the way...there are nude photos of Alex circulating on the web. Just do a Google search for Alex McCord nude and you can see them.
You know what...I'll give you the PG rated version with the boobies crossed out. If you want the rated R version you're going to have to do a little work.
I've never seen two people so desperate to be famous, no matter what the cost.
Next up, my favorite......LuAnn the Countess. Most people don't seem to like her. I've heard comments that she is a fake byotch and that she would crush ANYONE who gets in her way...maybe I'm a bad judge of character because I kind of like her! She seems to have a good sense of humor (except when it comes to "the help" calling her by her first name!) I love her clothes, her house her children. I love it all. I think I want to BE LuAnn! I was very touched by the scene where she helped the woman recovering from drug addiction with her interviewing skills. She seems like a genuinely caring person. (At least when the cameras are rolling!) It was a bit surprising to discover that her husband is on marriage #4. He must be a handful, but it seems she can handle it!
Bethenny...is a piece of work too. So strange the whole thing with her parents. (I'll have to do some research on that subject!) She is very intelligent and quick witted, but boy does she drink too much. She MUST have been wasted at her birthday dinner when she told Jill if she spoke one more word about material goods she was going to "f-cking stab her in the eye with a skewer!" Whoa. Rumor has it that her boyfriend Jason lost his job because he appeared on "that tawdry show" although the spokesperson for his firm said he wasn't performing up to expectations. Who knows?
Jill certainly gets alot of screen time! She seems to be involved with everyone! (Bethenny takes second place in that department!) I got a kick out of the scene where Brad and Jill harassed Allison when she was attempting to answer the phone's at Bobby's Showroom. That was pretty damn funny. The thing I love best about Jill is how she constantly says she thinks it's tacky to talk about money-and then proceeds to talk about clothes, jewelry, vacations, private schools, decorators and swanky restaurants...HELLO???!!! Do you hear yourself?
I guess they ran out of Ramona footage for the finale, because they rehashed the scene where she and her friend get beauty treatments at her friend the plastic surgeon's office. I can't believe she came waltzing in to the final dinner party an hour late because she was busy having her hair and makeup professionally done. Once again, where are the priorities? Her husband Mario's veins were popping out of his head when they arrived, he looked sooo uncomfortable! She was cracking me up when Simon and Alex's kids were getting out of control...the look on her face was priceless.
It looks like next week Jill goes off on Ramona and calls her an idiot during the "Real Housewives Reunion" interview. Oy vey!
So ladies, let's dish. What did you think of the finale? Who's your favorite housewife? Did you check out the nude photos of Alex? Inquiring minds with too much time on their hands want to know!!!
Later tonight...I'm watching my recording of the season premiere of "Workout." (Another Bravo show that I love.) Any other "Workout" fans out there?
