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!
Tamballs just wasn’t herself all last season of the RHOC! Tamballs blames her ex-husband for her chronic sadness and the only HW who stood by Tamballs and understood her pain was Dull-BRO. But, that’s all gonna change because there’s going to be a CUTFitness in LA and to keep the Tamballs/Grandma story line going, Ryan will be moving to the OC…and Tamballs will have a new YouTube channel!! Tamballs has more to say in between the many cliches she spouts…

Crooks somehow equates being a scammer whose name has been dragged through the mud several times with that of being a self-made man!
Camber has jumped on the $$$ for appearances train! For $250 a ticket, YOU can attend the SECOND annual fill a need foundation’s gala. This foundation will assist adults with autism. IF their promise of a Hamlet comes to fruition, it would be a wonderful environment for autistic adults. This foundation is listed on Guidestar; however, there is no information available.

RAMOANER HAD SOME WORK DONE…
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.
BATHROOM BOBBY PROMISES A TELL-ALL VIDEO…A REALLY WELL “PRODUCED” VIDEO! Which means that there will be no video and Bobby is hoping that everyone forgets about his promise of a tell-all video…

WARNING: DO NOT GO INTO KIM RICHARDS’ BEDROOM…
Kay Rozario, whom Kim calls her “second mother, says she was in Kim’s bedroom in March when she reached over the bed and Kingsley attacked her, biting through her hand all the way to the bone. The dog also went for her face but she blocked it with her arm, which was also injured. Rozario tells TMZ … Kim’s first reaction was, “Please don’t tell anyone. I’ll lose my show.”
Paramedics came and wanted to call animal control, but Rozario talked them out of it and said Kim would handle it. Rozario tells us Kim has refused to pay any of her medical bills. So she’ll file a lawsuit next week. NOTE: It’s no wonder Kim’s nephew didn’t want this dog…and pawned it off on her.
