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…
“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:
WHEN WAS THE MOMENT YOU REALIZED THAT THE SHOWS LOST THEIR “SPARK”?
WHEN DID YOU DECIDE THAT THE SHOWS WERE NO LONGER WORTH VIEWING?
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!
NOTE: Cannot understand why anyone would expect anything more from a book by MissAndy??!! Based on the reviews, his book is nothing more than one of his WWHL shows in written form… all fluff, no substance. MissAndy is about as … Continue reading →
MissAndy begged PumpMyStomach to return to the RHOBH… that’s the story and they’re both sticking to it!
MissAndy Had To Beg Pump To Return
And BLEEECH! PumpMyStomach is done with DrunkOtis…at least for this season.
PMS Is Done With DrunkOtis
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.
The Housewives now have become a very faint reminder of the days when they were interesting and fun. What used to be great fun in seeing brief glimpses into the lives and friendships of these so-called “wealthy” women has become … Continue reading →
The “Long Island Medium” Theresa Caputo is being accused of giving a fake reading to MissAndy when she was on WWHL back in March. Andy says in his new book that Caputo did “a lot of fishing” when he was hoping … Continue reading →
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.”
RHONJ Teresa Giudice and Juicy on WWHL Possible Jail Sentences…
When asked whether he feels partly responsible for the drama, including Teresa Giudice’s recent sentence to 15-months in jail for fraud charges, Andy told ET: “I don’t.” “I think what we’re seeing is a reflection of life. The Housewives … Continue reading →
Another in the “WhateverWednesday” series to find out whatever happened to MelissaGorga’s passion, her life-long quest to be a singer? Melissa even contracted the services of the “Soul Diggaz” to led the way to the Grammys! Melissa is so good that she had everyone in her 3×6 basement recording studio dancing to her auto-tuned song!!
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.
This is laughable! Online civil rights group Color Of Change is calling for for Andy Cohen and the Bravo Television Network to no longer profit by airing physical fights between Black people… “Violence involving Black cast members has become a … Continue reading →
CNBC financial guru Suze Orman has free advice for women everywhere: Don’t be like Real Housewife Teresa Giudice. “It’s a prime example for women, that if they don’t think the behaviors of somebody that they are involved with financially speaking … Continue reading →
On last night’s WWHL, NayNay told MissAndy: “I’ve done everything I can do for her and I hope she comes to see the show with her girls and have a drink with her before she goes. I would even visit … Continue reading →
“DinoBaby123″ will receive a coupon for one free Fabulicious GelatoBar! FinePrint: Not responsible for travel expenses incurred while traveling to 738,623 grocery stores in states east of the Mississippi in search of said bars!
This item is a bit shocking, as Kristen Johnston is/was(?) MissAndy’s friend…whatever their “friend” status is, we applaud Kristen!!! The Housewives shows have sunk to new levels and are nothing but rotting garbage… no matter in which zip code … Continue reading →
We’ve been waiting and waiting and waiting and WAITING for more news of Sean Avery’s big wedding to his beard fiancee, Hilary Rhoda. Immediately after it was revealed last year that Sean Avery was engaged to MissAndy, Sean suddenly got … Continue reading →
Jacob Huddleston has gone full circle and is back producing the RHONJ, after his stint producing the canceled Miami franchise. He’s asked to pick up the fig bar left on the coffee table. If you forgot how chummy Huddleston is with certain NJ subhumans, please read THIS.
The article from EntertainmentWeekly asking if we’re tired of “reality” TV is not at all surprising. We’ve been saying the very same, but specifically about the Housewives franchises for at least a year. With the Bravo debacle, the RHONJ, wrapping up … Continue reading →
