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!
