Open Thread: Real Housewives (and More!)
We’ve been meaning to open a thread for discussion of the various shows in the “Real Housewives” franchise – versions currently running are Real Housewives of New York, Real Housewives of Orange County, and, as of tonight (squee!) Real Housewives of New Jersey. Fans (or non-fans!) of the various shows and their stars – please weigh in! Which is your favorite version? Who do you love? Who do you love to hate?
We also thought we’d use this thread for a catch-all discussion of reality shows not covered elsewhere. Several shows are just ending or soon to end (The Apprentice, Survivor, The Amazing Race, America’s Next Top Model, Dancing with the Stars), but if there’s anything I’ve learned, it’s that, like weeds and bills, one no sooner sees the end of one reality show but that another one pops up in its place. I believe The Bachelorette is soon to start, and while I don’t generally watch that series, I’ve been eyeing the already-begun Mob Wives and am intrigued by the soon-to-begin show following Ice-T and Coco. What about you? Any particular shows you can’t stand to miss? Any shows you’re embarrassed to admit you watch? Share your thoughts below!
