Oh, look Marysol… Dandy fired another one!
With all the shifting of personnel at the Housewives franchises… the latest to get the Bravo boot is Peggy Tanous from the Real Housewives of Orange County (here)… obviously word got to the Miami area that appearing on the Bravo show just isn’t all that. There will definitely be another season for the Real Housewives of Miami… if Bravo can find anyone in Miami to sign up as a Housewife!
Reports the Miami Herald… here:
“One woman told us she was contacted twice, even after adamantly refusing the first time. “They’re calling everyone,” she wrote in an email. “It’s embarrassing.”
This, along with the fact that “fans” of the Housewives are NOT rushing to purchase tickets for the Real Housewives Live Tour (SH posted a link today for FREE tickets to the October 8 show…) is just another indication that Andy and all the other mucky-mucks at Bravo realize that the Housewives franchises are sinking fast.
Here’s hoping that all the collective brainiacs at Bravo come up with a solution to this huge Housewives mess, ’cause if they don’t, there will be no more SH!
Seriously, though… it is truly insulting to the viewers of any and/or all of the Housewives franchises to observe a once entertaining show sink to become, as Jillz confirmed on her “I’m pissed that Bravo fired me” tour, nothing more than an hour-long infomercial. As soon as someone signs up to appear on the show, they feel compelled to shove wine, jewelry, clothing, shoes, handbags, makeup, cookbooks, hair care products, skin care, spaghetti sauce, etc., etc. down viewers throats and viewers are sick of it.
If this continues, many, many viewers will simply turn to watch totally scripted television. And, why not? We can all see the producer-induced scenarios forced upon the Housewives that are now making up the episodes of each franchise. So, why not switch the channel and watch scripted television… at least when they’re selling something, they’re called commercials.
