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!!

Dumbest Housewife BackPorcha!

Poor BackPorcha.  She’s been telling anyone that will listen that she’s getting a spin off.   The only spin off she’s getting is a spin in the revolving door of Housewives that MissAndy/Bravo uses… and out the door BackPorcha goes!!  No spin off for her!

BLIND ITEM REVEALED! It’s A Housewife From Atlanta!!

From CDAN:

This Real Housewife was in Vegas over the weekend (July 2014) and was not shy about making it clear she was available for the night or week or longer for the right price.

IT’S Kenya Moore!

(Thanks “chameleon”!!)

NOTE:  Kenyan may have obtained a $20,000 cashier’s check, but the DPSF has yet to cash it, ’cause Kenyan didn’t give it!  So, neither Kenyan nor NayNay have come through with their promised donation!

APOLLO VISITS DIVORCE ATTORNEY…

On the next RHOA, Apollo seeks counsel from the official RHOA divorce attorney… while Phaedra watches their kids in the pool.  For some reason, Phaedra just isn’t believable.  Watch for a Phaedra’s upcoming Bravo spinoff… “How I’m Living Single With Two Kids.”  And Juicy’s Bravo spinoff… “How I’m Living Single With FOUR Beautiful Daughters.”

Those “highly educated” Bravo people are soooo intelligent.

BLIND ITEM REVEALED: The “Philanthropist” Housewife Who Demanded CASH!!! FrontPorcha Pissed!!

porsha

From CDAN:

“Part of the problem when you start demanding gifts from your suitor is that sometimes the suitor will end up wanting the gifts back, especially when you start trash talking him in front of his business associates. Such is the case of this list reality star from an A list reality cable franchise. She was flaunting all of her gifts that she had received from her suitor and it was an impressive haul. Missing from the haul though was actual CASH. Most of the really expensive gifts were still in his name. Sure, there was some jewelry he gave her, but she is not desperate enough to sell it yet. She will be though because she thinks her new boyfriend is going to be able to give her the same life she had with her husband and her suitor, but they are worlds apart in income, despite the profession of her current boyfriend.

Anyway, while at a gathering with her suitor, our reality star began complaining about who her new suitor was not man enough because he wasn’t also giving her cash and that she should find someone who would also take care of her financially and started hitting on the suitor’s friends in front of the suitor himself and made it perfectly clear that she would be willing to start something with one of them or all of them if they would also provide CASH to go with the gifts.

That was enough for the suitor to start having all the possessions he could repossessed from our reality star and shutting down lines of credit he opened for her and just making her life even worse than what it was. She also had taken out some loans from people using the name of her suitor, but now will be forced to get money from family or her new boyfriend to make good on those debts.”

It’s “Philanthropist” “Singer” Porsha Williams!

FrontPorcha was asked to point out any lies in this item.   Just like the many Housewives who made threats before her, we are still waiting for her response.

RAMOANER ALLEGEDLY LEFT BFRANKEL’S BIRTHDAY PARTY WITH A 25-YR-OLD…this is laughable and is nothing more than a weak story line, and an excuse to be a client of Stanker.  If Ramoaner were really divorcing Mario, the divorce would have been finalized by now.  Watch for a reconciliation announcement…hopefully, there will not be a recommitment ceremony.

BLIND ITEM: Who’s The Housewife?

From CDAN:

This still fairly new East Coast Housewife has learned a little something from Taylor Armstrong Shana.  All of our Housewife’s expensive bags are knockoffs and her jewelry is all fake too.

The good news is she doesn’t have to turn tricks any longer because she is making a decent living on the show.

EAST COAST:  New Jersey, New York, Atlanta…

Apollo Goes To Jail…

This is one screwed up preview.  If you’re not a murderer, your crime isn’t that bad?  Would Apollo would still be committing crimes if his co-conspirator hadn’t brought him in?  If, as Phakedra says “going to court won’t change anything”… why didn’t she go to court for Apollo?  Doesn’t Phakedra think that her kids WILL be subjected to the disaster going on eventually?

Teresa and Juicy’s pre-prison sob story will involve their kids.
