As some of you know, I love television. I'm no longer denying it, trying to convince you I just watch PBS, Discovery, National Geographic and History Channel should be easy, I do watch all the above and then some, quite a sum! I'm not into daytime, though, unless it's a good movie on TCM. I'm usually busy in the studio or taking care of other little things that need to be done...soaps, talk shows or silly judge shows, no way!! I recall how my Dad loved Judge Judy...he looked forward to see her every day. Several times I would sit with him and visit, then Judge Judy came along, I was dead to him!!
I am a fan of The Housewives of New York City and Orange County. As far as the other two, New Jersey and Atlanta, those are royal train wrecks!! You're thinking, "Oh no, Georgina, I thought you had ethics, scruples, smarts," well, dear fans, I do, but sometimes the baser side of us is exposed and this is my baser side exposed.
The Orange County bimbos seem to be a bit more down-to-earth in the sense they have suffered from our recent economic stuff and talk about it, even though they still get their botox, boob jobs, face lifts and trips to Cabo...they have their priorities. Then you have the women from New York City, they are hardly bimbos, five out of the six, are professional women that can stand alone without any help, well, at least that's what they want us to believe.
This season is about "GANG" loyalty. It's Ramona and Bethany against LuAnn, Jill and Kelly...Alex is trying to be Switzerland, but not all that successful...she's veering towards Romana and Bethany's Bitch Band. I watched all this in amazement, wondering if these women really know what's going on out in the REAL WORLD, and not the MTV version either, oey vey! These women are bickering over what the others are saying about them and vice versa. They are "do-gooders" because they have these lavish charities at Sachs 5th Avenue, Ungaro and attend shows during fashion week, one of them saying she only attends just a couple since she's not into fashion and is personal friends with these designers; how very honest of her, right? I won't be hard on Bethany, she's seen hard times.
Personally, I like these New York ladies because just like the movie theatre was a way of escapism for the regular people during the Great Depression, so is this show for me. I love hearing all the bickering, and kissy kissy on both cheeks when they hate each other and would rather put a knife in each others back. I find this very comical and entertaining. They remind of Marie Antoinette, wife of Louis the XVI. The royalty was clueless to what was happening right outside their palace walls and of course, it all came back to bite them in the gazorne..."Off with their heads!" Now I really doubt this will happen in our ladies in New York, but they too are equally clueless as to what's going on down here in the real mundo!! They have their charities, designer shoes and clothes, their homes in the Hamptons and have a really lovey life. I'm not at all envious of them and I don't feel sorry for them, ignorance is bliss after all, I love the show!
So dear friends, that's my opin and I'm sticking to it. Love the ladies and appreciate they give us a small bit of their lives to we, the voyeurs. Keep it up ladies, you have no idea how entertaining you are and make me realize just how blessed I am...think I'll tune in to TCM and see it "Putting on the Ritz," is playing. Peace out.
