The "Real" Housewives

HH thinks I've lost my mind. Does anyone else share my guilty pleasure in watching these shows (Orange County, New York, Atlanta)?

I watch and shake my head thinking that I will NEVER be like these people, but I can't turn away................

Yeah, once in a while I like to appreciate how normal my/our life is and I'd turn on Bravo. These people are crazy, nasty, disgustingly obnoxious and pathetic at best; in reality they are even worse. Unless of course it’s all fake and made up.

Of course a lot of it is staged. The constant lunching and shopping, etc. I wonder if these women realize how they come across on TV after all the editing is done. Yeah, they're just "moms" and "housewives." Still, like I said - it's a guilty pleasure.

No kidding. Too bad their kids appear to be such a mess.
