Camille and LuAnn… neophyte thespians… let’s not take it any further!
“I have nothing against any housewives, real or otherwise. It’s a free country, and people in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones, and we’re all just co-astronauts on the big blue starship called Planet Earth. When people are famous in America, they get a lot of opportunities. When people are infamous in America, they usually get even more opportunities, because America is broken. I can’t begrudge people for making silly mistakes. But I can send out a message from the bottom of my heart to all Real Housewivesfar and wide, from Atlanta to New York, from Orange County to New Jersey, from the new one (obviously, the Real Housewives of Miami) to the one we’ll never speak of again (obviously, the Real Housewives of DC): Please, ladies, stop trying to act.
The RHOA Sheree Whitfield… actin’ like she doesn’t see the repo man around the corner…
I bring this up only because, in the last week, we’ve seen two Housewives stars pop up in non-Housewives roles. Tonight, Countess Luann de Lesseps of the Real Housewives of New York will appear on Law & Order: SVU; last week, Camille Grammer played a loudly exaggerated version of herself on S#*! My Dad Says. (Grammer will also be front and center at the Oscars as CNN’s fashion and celebrity commentator.) Throw in the fact that the Real Housewives of Atlanta star Sheree Whitfield had a brief cameo on The Game last month, and you’ve got a legitimate trend. And it’s a trend that must be stopped, people. Stopped, I say!
The key to enjoying the housewives on Housewives, I think, is that the franchise slyly makes fun of them while also doing them a profound service: By elevating their oft-ridiculous personalities into the stratosphere, the shows make their various interactions begin to feel simultaneously melodramatic and actually worthy of a good sitcom. That magic — which I’m guessing comes mainly from some especially savvy people in the editing room — gets completely lost whenever the Housewives start trying to actively perform. (I suspect that the “performing” instinct is also a big reason why the later seasons of Housewives franchises tend to decline in quality — the stars have all had a chance to see themselves onscreen, and they start to adjust themselves to fit the camera. (Werner Heisenberg literally talked all about this.) … and SH talked about the Heisenberg Principle back in early January: http://stoopidhousewives.com/2011/01/03/housewives-and-the-heisenberg-principle/ )
So please, wonderful Housewives: When you get the offer to play a boozy middle-aged flirt on Rules of Engagement, or a wealthy murder suspect on CSI: Miami, or the one millionth sexy doctor on Grey’s Anatomy: Don’t do it. Leave acting to the actors. After all, you’ve already found your greatest role: Yourself.”
NOTE: “I suspect that the “performing” instinct is also a big reason why the later seasons of Housewives franchises tend to decline in quality.” This blurb from the above article says volumes. The HWs overall decline has been observed by more than the readers of SH. The recent premier of the Miami franchise (in place of the RHONY) is not the singular reason for the overall watering down of the Housewives. Pinpointing the exact component of the Housewives franchises that led to diluting the Housewives brand is challenging because it seems to have crept up on viewers, not jumped out… it was a slow burn, not a flash fire. There is something ‘off’ about the Housewives. The fact that New York was postponed because there was ‘so much good material’ that the editing department wanted to spend more time getting it ‘just right’ before airing the next season is testament that there are problems. You can usually tell when a series or program has ‘jumped the shark;’ however, because each Housewives franchise is unique this classification is dificult to apply. With the addition of the Real Housewives of Miami, Bravo is further diluting the brand, which is the beginning of the demise of the Housewives. IMO, I would have rather that Bravo aired the first seasons of Atlanta, New Jersey or New York in place of the delay of New York. Bravo has to realize that there needs to be some breathing room… there can be too much of a good thing.
Camille Grammer Re-Cast on Real Housewives of Beverly HillsBY: CAROLINE M. ROMAN – FEBRUARY 21ST, 2011
“It’s Official. Time to end the rumors and call T.O.D. Camille has officially been re-cast on and is off the show.
This is no longer speculation. This is the truth from a good source. And if you read The Daily Truffle you know we are the ones who announced the show first and who announced the cast first and who went to the premiere party etc, etc, etc.
Hark! Did we say “re-cast”?! Yes .. we did! Meaning a new housewife will join the cast next season!. We can’t tell you who, but if you keep your eyes peeled around Beverly Hills for the next couple months … you are sure to find out!. I am looking forward to seeing Camille on CNN this weekend at the Oscars and wish her and her children and the staff ;) the best in all their next endeavors. Doubt we’ve seen the last of her!”
NOTE: Camille is officially out… really, did anyone expect her to proceed with another season? I would have been shocked if she agreed to go on with RHOBH. The only reason for her to come back would have been to rehabilitate her ‘character’ that she complained to Miss Andy on the reunion shows was not ’rounded out’ to show her ‘good’ side. IMO, the scene with her and DD on the beach in which DD thanks Camille for saving her life and helping her during the past year was good enough… I mean DD even cried! So, that makes Camille a saint. There was nothing left for Camille to prove and no reason for her to expose herself any more than she did on season one. It’s surprising that Camille came out with her ‘official’ announcement first, as I expected Kim Richard’s official announcement before Camille’s, but that will be soon. IMO, Shana/Taylor will be asked to not come back, but she will spin it citing her crushing schedule, including all of her ‘charity’ work… that filming for RHOBH simply takes up too much of her time that is needed by so many other people and causes so dear to her heart… like people who have life-threatening bone diseases. So, who will replace Camille, Kim and Shana/Taylor? My bets are on Brandi Glanville, Jeanie Buss and Denise Richards.
Brandi Glanville (Eddie Cibrian’s ex and Cedric’s modeling buddy)
Jeanie Buss, LA Lakers Exec VP of Operations… might be a source of agitation for Adrienne
Denise Richards, big-time fan of RHOBH… would bring some Charlie crazy with her
Another “you cannot be serious” item about Real Housewives of Beverly Hills‘ Camille Grammer…
Camille posin’ at the Tonys…
“‘Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ star Camille Grammer has been hired by CNN as Oscars correspondent. The recently divorced star will be a fashion and celebrity commentator at next week’s Oscars for Showbiz Tonight, reports the New York Daily News.
She’ll join CNN hosts AJ Hammer and Brooke Anderson on the red carpet. “We can’t wait to get Camille’s unabashed take on Hollywood’s biggest night,” said Dave Levine, a senior executive producer of the show. The 42-year-old recently finalized a bitter divorce with actor Kelsey Grammer, who left her for 29-year-old flight attendant Kayte Walsh.”
NOTE: Just because Camille attended awards ceremonies does not make her a commentator… can she think and speak at the same time?? Now, if this were the Annual Soft-Core Porn Awards, Camille would be a perfect person for the job… and you can use your imagination for which ‘job’ she’d be perfect!
