What is it, really? Is it the change in weather? Is it how annoying these “reality” shows have become? What is it, really?
There are posts lined up ready for publishing. However, after reading them, I ask myself, “Who cares?” Who really cares if Lynne Curtin from the most crass and classless of the Housewives franchises, the Real Housewives of Orange County, gets a divorce after being separated from her husband for two years? Does anyone care… about Lynne… the state of her marriage… or her cuff jewelry line?
Does anyone care that Tree Joodice… the TreeJoodice who has rehabilitated herself (with the help of some VERY professional agents) beyond recognition… has an ally lined up as her accomplice on the next unwatchable season of the Real Housewives of New Jersey? Does anyone care what any of these crap-for-brains Housewives have to say? Does it matter that they support gay rights? Or had their photos taken after having their faces tattooed with a sharpie and duct tape placed over their mouths? Does anyone care that they pose naked for PETA? Does anyone care what products they’re tryin’ to push down viewers throats?
Is there anyone actually buying their wine, their shirts, their vodka, their books, their shoes or their shapewear? Anyone besides, of course, the people tweeting the Wives asking them where they can buy their wares or tweeting them about how fabulous their products…that the tweeter ‘unsuspiciously’ bought TEN of for Christmas… are?
Does anyone care that Cynthia and Peter got re-married? Or that we’re gonna see Lisa VanderpumpRump re-marrying Ken? Yes, after Ken’s miraculous recovery from his near-death hip surgery, Lisa will spout out more affirmations of her love for Ken and how she just can’t live without him… in preparation for her and Ken’s re-commitment ceremony. Again, who cares?
Is anyone looking forward to seeing Tamballs’ bachelorette party? Yes, it’s another trip for the Housewives… YAWN.
Does anyone REALLY care that Brandi Glanville wrote a book about her breakup? Does anyone REALLY care about the highly UN-educated Ms. Glanville advice that she has jam packed in her tome? A much more laughable book than Brandi Glanville’s “dating advice” book is the **cough, cough** much-anticipated “marriage advice” book from none other than that sub-human New Jersey Housewife, Melissa Gorga. Oh… totally forgot about the other sub-human from New Jersey, DonCaroline Manzoid’s book coming out! Now, THAT’S the epitome of burglar balls of book writin’! Who in their right mind is going to take what ANY of these chicks have to say as legitimate? Especially DonCaro?
You can be sure that BubbaJax probably has a
ghostwriter book lined up about how she lived through her child’s diagnosis of autism… just wait, you’ll see!
Does anyone REALLY care about the Lord of the Housewives, MissAndy? The leader of the BravoLebrities, MissAndy’s asking his puppetWives to perform for him on their reunion shows and to play his moronic sophomoric “games” on his talk show has made both him and these “reality” wives to be taken as jokes. After hearing the same “joke” from MissAndy and Bravo repeatedly, the joke becomes more than stale… it becomes something rotten and moldy. Maybe in the case of MissAndy and his Wives, they have become worse than rotten and moldy… they are more likened to the flattened dead cats strewn about in a Hoarders episode found by Matt Paxton (love that guy!).
In fact, the level of interest in this “reality” genre has hit an all-time low. There is nothing “REAL” in “reality” TV! Who wants to see T-Boz’s return? Who cares what the Braxton’s are doing? Who wants to watch the three SpecialKs take Miami? Who really cares about Persians living in LA? Furthermore, who wants to watch “reality” shows based on serial killers… or drug addicts… or based on no-talent people off the street? One of those no-talents got rich, VERY rich and VERY lucky because three dumbass gay white guys decided to like her!
The bizarre fascination with these people has flattened. What used to be fun… way back when MissAndy only had one chair in his Clubhouse and when he was not intent on becoming the next greatest talk show host… has now morphed into a strained disgust when watching their antics, MissAndy’s included. Remember MissAndy’s fun New Year’s Eve Party?
And some of the guests New Year’s Resolutions?
This may just be a passing phase… this total disgust with all things “Housewives”… and it may not!
Can only say that the shows that I’m looking forward to are the new season of MadMen, NCIS and that frickin’ GoldRush show… will also watch repeats of TheCloser, BurnNotice and some others that escape my brain at this moment!
NOTE: When looking through photos to include in this little rant, discovered that HagfaceKyle Richards is NOT the only Hagface! Yes, HagfaceKyle has some very strong competition! Not only in the “Hagface” category, but the “ManHands” category as well!
Also, if anyone is wondering about the future of Sin City Rules… starring crime baby, Amy… you can be assured that it’s on its way out the door. TLC would not be airing a new Sin City Rules at 11 pm… with an episode of Sister Wives taking SCR normal time slot of 10 pm… if there were any hope for the show! AWW… too bad, Amy! There goes your 15 minutes!!
