YOUR OPINIONS NEEDED! Masters Thesis On Housewives…

sorbonne paris

SH has been asked to assist one of our international readers in their Housewives research!  His questions would be better answered by as many SH readers/viewers of the Housewives franchises as possible and not strictly the viewpoint of SH.

Therefore, kindly respond in comments to assist…

BACKGROUND…

“Hello. I’m coming to you today because I’m doing a thesis on the Housewives franchise. I’m a French student at Sorbonne in Paris, France. I’m currently doing a master in translation studies in english. Indeed, I would like to be an english translator. I have this class which is about the media in the US and we have to focus on a show (whether it’s an actual show or a reality tv show). So obviously, I chose the Real Housewives. Being a big fan of the franchise, I couldn’t miss this opportunity.

But the problem is I’m not American. And I would need your help, and the help of the SH readers to help me for this thesis. I have several questions I would like you to ask the readers so that I can put the general feeling of the answers (and even some answers that I would like to quote) in the work.”  Signed “M.E.”

IN GENERAL…  he is researching

“the perception of these shows, the core values etc”  

And would like his paper to focus on

“how Bravo manipulates the viewers” 

SPECIFICALLY… your answers to these questions:

  1. WHEN WAS THE MOMENT YOU REALIZED THAT THE SHOWS LOST THEIR “SPARK”?  

  2. WHEN DID YOU DECIDE THAT THE SHOWS WERE NO LONGER WORTH VIEWING?  

  3. IS THERE ANY ENTERTAINMENT VALUE LEFT IN ANY OF THE HOUSEWIVES SHOWS?   PLEASE EXPLAIN.

NOTE:  As these are broad topics and some words have have been lost in translation, kindly do your best to answer!  Your opinions are appreciated!  

AND…If you have a twitter account, please tweet!!

PumpMyStomach On WWHL: MissAndy Begged PMS To Return… PMS Is Done With DrunkOtis

MissAndy begged PumpMyStomach to return to the RHOBH… that’s the story and they’re both sticking to it!

And BLEEECH! PumpMyStomach is done with DrunkOtis…at least for this season.

NOTE:  Maybe the Housewives shows wouldn’t be so terrible if they were labeled truthfully… as night time soap operas.  The phony friendships, hard-to-believe connections and scripted lines are tiresome to watch and are turning people off.

MissAndy … Giudices In Denial

MissAndy writes about an interview he did with the Giudices when they were charged with 39 counts…

September 22, 2013:

“It was like pulling teeth. They are either very un-introspective or in complete denial. Or both.”

“I said, ‘So … you guys are facing fifty years in prison, and they were like, ‘Is it fifty years? We thought it was a hundred. Is it fifty years both or just one or …'” he continued. “So that’s something they are going to want to clarify with their attorneys.”

VGotti Explains TeresaGiudice And The RinoRumor…

VGotti… of the very prestigious Long Island Gottis… was a guest of MissAndy’s NYMediaMafia and shares her story about how the RHONJ story line came about.  VGotti explaining her warm relationship with Teresa gets 876634 eye rolls.  Whether or not VGotti was paid to appear as a “surprise” at Teresa’s book signing is moot.  VGotti was on the RHONJ to start the RinoRumor story line and to do some PR for her very, very terrible ’10-year-of-Gottis’ reunion show on A&E.
