Your Turn

Do you think the Real Housewives franchise has run its course?

I would like to say so Enty, but I fear your site might fold without it.

VIPblonde said...

Never!

I don't watch any of them (ok ok occasionally I turn on RHBH to laugh at Brandy's desperation. But I must admit that throwing a prosthetic limb on reality tv is pretty original.

sandybrook said...

These loser nobodys should have never had a course in the first place. BUT I fear for you and what might have happened if all those hours you wasted on this crap had been freed up for you to do other stuff.
Real Housewives of Melbourne Sundays at noon on Bravo Enty.

Sincerely,Your Friend said...

Is say they've been ran hard and put away wet.

DoctahRivenIsAHasBeen said...

But other than that yes obviously it should have stopped when they started casting people who are not housewives.

All Lace no Leather said...

I enjoyed it when there was less scripted conflict and it was like getting a peak inside the life of those with money and privilege.

crila16 said...

Absolutely not.

Tricia S said...

Hahahah
@riven I gotta answer to this one lol

Personally, no, I think a lot of people (shame me) have an unfounded..voyeuristic need to watch these people propelled into fame , living pseudo luxurious lives....and when they are exposed for what the are...even better.
But there's nothing "real "about almost any if them(except Vicki (RHWOC) /kyle(RHWBH) caroline(RHWNJ..and she's off show) / and Carol& her bestie heather(RHWNY)

The picking of the participants has to be more..careful, more organic,less forced and strategic...and the cities need to be more-diverse...for instance, I live in Miami and pray Bravo does NOT do another installment and ends the franchise here..it was embarrassingly bad and made Miami look like amateurville

Try RHW...Portland maybe...or maybe Austin?

Change it up Cohen

I would love to see the Real Housewives of Modesto or Stockton.

AndrewBW said...

The Real Housewives franchise ran its course the day after it debuted.

Lady Heisenberg said...

True that Catsup! THIS is the ultimate Housewives clip. I think even fellow non-RH-fan Riven would enjoy this one.

califblondy said...

I take breaks and then start watching again to avoid burnout.

CoBe said...

Too much screeching.

Except for BH, which is entertaining to watch Brandi morphing into Kim.

sugarbread maker said...

I use to watch them all but I quit NJ years ago and I quit nyc this year. Miami after 1 season and only got 20 minutes into dc.
Still faithful to bh and Atlanta though they still bring it.

DoctahRivenIsAHasBeen said...

Real Housewives Portland
Real Housewives Stockton
Real Housewives Fargo
Real Housewives Bakersfield
Real Housewives south side Chicago
Real Housewives International: Winnipeg

Fuck I would totally watch ALL of those lol. Awesome suggestions!

Lady Heisenberg said...

Real Housewives of Chowchilla Block B

NomNom83 said...

As long as they can replace cast members and add cities, they'll keep going.

With all the new, obscene wealth it generates, I'm shocked they haven't done a RH of Silicon Valley.

Although one could argue that all the others are RH of SiliconE Valley.

Catsup said...

@Lady H - Chowchilla would be awesome...lol on the Disney clip!

Bakersfield was another great suggestion!

Susan said...

Well, I have no shame: I can't wait for RHBH to return.

I floved Ladies of London. I was quite sad when it was over.

Now, Jersey. This one is boggling my brain. The new cast members are so tacky it's beyond. They make Melissa Gorga seem classy in comparison. I love watching her and Joe Gorga in their rental house. It's probably killing them that that's what they call home these days.

DoctahRivenIsAHasBeen said...

@LadyH That was so fantastic and hilarious I was actually able to ignore Lohan!

QueenAnne Guido said...

NEVER. Watched. Those. Ratchet. Bees. Never. Will.

So. Stabby. Thought. Makes. Me.

Bitters said...

Let's hope so, better yet let's do away with rewarding no talent famewhores with fame and $$$

Tricia S said...

@riven...good choices...
But u left out- RHWCheyenne,Wyoming!!

Lady Heisenberg said...

@queen: not even the Real Housewives of Disney! See my clicky clip above. I think that should be a real thing. If actually watch RH if it were

Lady Heisenberg said...

I would also watch RH of OC if the wives were from Little Saigon or Santa Ana.

QueenAnne Guido said...

Blerta from SNL ... real housewives of the crimea....

Sugar said...

You need to add Real Housewives of Jackson, Mississippi or some small rich southern town full of gossipy pearl clutchers. Now that would be some good tv! Good old fashioned Southern smackdowns! Atlanta doesn't count b/c it's a big city. We need small southern town reps!

Trilby said...

+1 thousand.

Trilby said...

+ 1 million.

Trilby said...

Aaaaaand, ANOTHER + 1 million.
Remember when tv shows were well-written for ACTORS AND ACTRESSES?!??!!

Orvilla Bedinbacher said...

I've never watched but I'm a little interested now that 2 soap opera stars have joined.

Kat has left the building said...

I love all of them for different reasons except I stopped watching Orange County because Vicki and Tamra make me nauseous. I didn't watch all of Jersey last year because it was boring and I didn't watch the Atlanta reunion because they were just screaming nasty and NeNe thought she was better than everyone. I enjoy seeing their pretty things and when they fight I like analyzing it and deciding what I would have done. Or I'm going through something similar and it helps to see it played out by others.

Scarlett Drawl said...

Atlanta is dead. The homophobic cow Nene killed it.

auntliddy said...

It was over before it started. Goodbye!

Sherry said...

I'm of the school it should never have started in the first place. That RH of Disney was hilarious but damn if Lohag put zero work into her character. Remind me how she's an actor again?

FlirtyChick74 said...

YES!!

Jacq said...

I can barely understand those Melbourne ladies

Paint Chips said...

Yes, cancel the lot.

My tastes run more towards Honey Boo Boo and the like.

Studio54 said...

Yes, they need to cancel the whole lot of them. Too often, these "rich housewives" were broke con artists like the Giudice's, a hood rat who was in jail, NeNe, a has been Kandi Burress, and this fame makes them Marie Antoinette divas from hell. Did you see Enty's hilarious blind where NeNe wouldn't come out of her trailer until she got a better class of champagne, or the absurd demands of "Kandi who" Burress, her own brand new toilet seat, among other things? Who are these no talent phonies they have foisted on America. Then Miss Andy makes them ALL wear those monstrous shoes that no one can walk in, that gay designers foist upon women as "fashion". NeNe is who queens like, but she shows her anti-gay bias all the time, calling them "bitches", etc. Apollo's going to prison, Guidice is going to prison, Tamra no money is fired, and they should end the lot of these shows.

Unknown said...

No, but. What they should do is not have back the same housewives season after season. Do 5, and keep one to tie the next season too bringing on 4 more and so on. The show loses it's appeal when these "housewives" think they are more famous, get into contract disputes and negotiations etc. For example - they are running the Real Housewives of Melbourne at noon on Sundays on Bravo. It is GOLD. 100x more interesting than any US franchise because we get to meet and learn the women. We form opinions, pick favorites etc. Same goes for Real Housewives of Vancouver. I watched season one on Youtube and season 2...they kept 3 and got three new second season...and still it was fascinating. So much better than any of this forced drama of trips and parties all dreamed up by Bravo.

Habibti said...

NO WAY! NEVER! I love all of those train wrecks equally!

Sea Hag said...

I sure hope so. Haven't ever watched one, never will. My own life has enough drama, I don't need to watch those train wrecks.
