You would think BRAVO would have people on that are: 1 HOUSEWIVES 2 People that know each other for a while. 3 These people say one thing that they don't do but just go ahead and do it anyway. They are saying it just to look good. But then they catch them at doing it. 4 With the economy the way it is now I don't really want to see people with alot of money and how they spend it. I would like to see them to work in the community if they don't have anything better to do.
I have been watching the real housewives of new york since it began, and I think they really need to take a course in class. None of them have it, and if they did, for 1. they would not have stupid iron hangers in their closet full of expensive clothing. they would have color coordinated closets and have that expensive wardrobe hung on appropriate hanging devices that are made specifically for that type of clothing. As woman, we not only take our appearance seriously, we take our wardrobe to extream, and that means tender loving care. Take a little advice from the Real Housewife of Riverside California, Yeah!!
The Real Working Housewife of Riverside California.
In comparison to OC and Atlanta hoisewives, these are the best! What's the deal with the new housewife? Why would you even add a new one? There's no real added benefit. Stick with the original ones.
I love Jill and Betheny !!!! They are the best. LuAnn is a total stuck up - she needs to learn that "reminding everyone you're a countess" is not correct "etiquette." And what's the big deal about her title?? all she did is marry someone - it's not like she achieved a goal or worked to aquire the title. I wish people would just call her "Mrs". Even Ramona is not that full of herself.
I was appalled at Luann's behavior in several incidences in the last episode. First, she gets up at the Cancer Fund Raiser and tells everyone to shut up and listen, then proceeds to sit back at her table and talk non-stop...about her royal self. Second, regarding her little "Manners Tea Party" for her daughter and friends: She chastised them for things (and rightly so) like no elbows on the table, no chewing with your mouth open, and semi-proper use of utensils. (I realize she is teaching them European style, but even the Europeans don't put their used knife back on the table until they are finished. Even then, they are supposed to lay the knife across the plate-signifying being finished so the server can remove the plate.) However, she couldn't stop talking, even when she had food in her mouth. Talking with food in your mouth??? Such a faux paus. tsk, tsk... I was raised in a middle class, 2 working-parents family, but one thing my mother made sure we learned- TABLE MANNERS! From setting a proper one to correct use and laying down of untensils between bites. And how to eat properly in public and private. Luann, honey, if you want some help in that department, either dear Emily Post or I would be of great help to you. I'll be in NYC 4/15 if you would like some lessons. 8>) Another point-I have been reading most of the blogs these women write. With all the resources at hand, you'd think they would get someone to spell-check for them. "There" and "Their" are two different words. Improperly spelled and used words in a public forum just shows lack of proper education. Or inattention at those very exclusive schools they attended. (i.e. The correct statement would be Neither Simon nor I..." not "Neither Simon nor me...") Bethany is the only TRULY REAL person on the show. She's a trip and I would love to hang with her, but I wouldn't have the energy! I like how she shoots straight from the hip and is usually right in what she says! I like Jill, too. She seems genuine, although easy to offend. But she seems to have a very good heart, even if she appears to be a bit uppity sometimes. I do appreciate her interest in JRA and doing fund raisers for them. I have young cousins with severe JRA, so my heart goes out to her and Allie. I've seen it destroy one of them and two others will live with the effects of this all their lives. Their dad, my first cousin, is 52 and is suffering so badly from it he can barely move. Yet he keeps on working, driving himself to survive yet another operation, infection, series of infusions, and his body is wrecked, but they ALL bust their butts to make it through life. And they don't whine about it, either. I have issues "Rameana", but at least she's "out there", whatever her issue. (I especially dislike her "Christian" jewelry when her behavior certainly isn't Christian most of the time! jmho) And I agree with her 100% about Alex & Simon-they give me the creeps. Total social climbers and weird and fake as heck. The new one-get over yourself, lady. You act like some sort of Goddess appearing for a brief, magical moment to please mere mortals with your presence. And you remind me of that episode of "Seinfeld" where the girl changes from pretty to not-so-pretty depending on the light. Without make-up, you look a whole lot older than you pretend to be. After all that being said, RHONY is still the best Real Housewives of all.
Hey Jill. I dont know what you did since last season. but you look absolutely hot. You looked nice before but this year, wow. wow. wow. You are hot looking. Keep it up. Bobby you lucky sob.
The best housewife on New York City Housewives is Jill's mother, Gloria. The advice she gave to Bettheny was "on point". And taking Bettheny into the family was awesome. Bravo, Gloria needs a show of her own.
I'd love to know the following:
How are the housewives chosen? Is it a contest or Bravo producers finding 'interesting' women.
Are the Housewives financially compensated?
Are there camera people following the Housewives around their day-to-day tasks?
I know these women from various city & Hamptons events. The only "real" Housewife is Jill. She is portrayed true to herself. Betheny has the best quips...hysterical. She should do some stand-up. Lu-ann has become too full of herself...but why? She seems to have a lonely life. Ramona should thank her lucky stars Mario has stayed with her. She has aged poorly. Alex must be embarrassed to be out in public. She has made a fool of herself every week. She & her husband are the poster children for tacky social climbers. Kelly won't last. Unless her cravings for publicity are stronger than her self worth. Did I miss anyone?
Bethany, Jill thanks for the laughs. Really, thanks. Luann, Luann, do not correct others (except family) unless they ask you to. Make all feel comfortable and at ease when around you. Do not give your opinion unless asked and then moderate your comments. Now write your book. Ramona ... are you on drugs? Alex ... OMG. WOW. You're a joke, right? Kelly, please be kind and save your comments for next year, ok? Take us to some great parties with pretty people, please. Life is not to kind right now. thanks
I would love to spend a week with each and every housewife and really get to know them on a personal level! I love the show and look forward to every episode!
Can you believe that Ramona is the oldest of the housewives? I thought for sure that the oldest was LuAnn
I love Jill and Bethany. Viewers can tell that they are truly friends and care about one another. They are the only ones on this show that know how to be real to themselves and to others. I find it so funny that Luann finds it necessary to inform everyone that she has a title. Then thinks she has impeccable manners and needs to correct everyone. She married into a title!! It's very clear to anyone that watches the show that she did not come from a titled family. It is a joke that she thinks she should be writing this "book on manners". Example would be the show where she just couldn't take it anymore and had to get up on stage and tell everyone to shut up at the cancer fund raiser. Then proceeded to go back to her table and talk. How rude was that. She was so mean to Bethany when Bethany shared her good news about the cover of the magazine. Then when Bethany called her on it she lied and said she didn't say what she said. Luann is too fake and is trying too hard to be what she isn't. You can take the girl out of the trailer park but you can't take the trailer park out of the girl Luann....!!! You may of married title but we can all tell you weren't born with one.
Lu Ann are you dumb or what ?? In the United States we do not have silly titles like countess or count. It really means nothing to us, so stop trying to flatter yourself.
I have watched all episodes of Housewives of NYC since it began too. I wanted to see what it was like to live in the city. I wanted to see the city. I wanted to see what it was like to have lots of money, I mean lots of money and be a housewife in NYC. I wanted to see style and class. What I found is that I really like Jill and Bethany. Jill is herself and makes no apologizes and Bethany has a very quick wit and knows who she is. Here is what she didn't say to Kelly but should have: "Kelly, I don't care about you and I'm not impressed with you and that is what is bothering you. You aren't anything to me". I honestly can't understand the point Kelly was trying to make to Bethany? I think Kelly is very narcissistic,she needs to work on the beauty inside for awhile. LuAnn you do seem a little self righteous most of the time...let it go! Ramona I have liked you, not liked you, liked you, not liked you I think most people feel that way. Ramona's husband was completely out of control talking to Jill. It was embarrassing. As for Simon and Alex... you guys are like trying to put a square peg in a round hole with this group. Forget about it... Those are my musings..cheers
Kelly a person who tells the truth never has to remember what they said.Everytime you tell a story about how things transpired between Bethany and yourself the story changes. You should have your head examined, you have hit the wall and you cant get away with your chidlike behavior anymore you are not that cool,Bethany you continue to behave like the lady you are.Ramona what can I say you have diareah of the mouth. Jill you are delicious, Alex for some reason I like both you and Simon and Luanne loosen up life is too short. I need to brace myself for the NJ housewives I know them and its going to be a train wreck. By the way NJ housewives spend their mornings in sweat pants with no makeup and food shop and yell alot
Love Jill, Brad, and Bethany! I just watched the episode where Kelly rips Bethany for being childish, but Kelly is the one who need to exercise a little class. She sat down and immediately insulted Bethany after asking her to meet!! Then, she is bold enough to state SHE is out of high school. Why insult Bethany so much if you are above it all? Blow it off, Bethany!! I loved your impression of Kelly as you repeated the conversation to Ramona.
Bethany, again, YOU GO, GIRL! What did Ra-meana say to you about being the underdog? Oh, no she "dit-nt". Good for you to maintain your posture while she was belittling you for no reason except jealousy. You could tell she was pissed because the focus had shifted away from her and her Fountain of Youth products to you. Even her friends were embarrassed for her. I love how her 'deer in the headlights' eyeballs bug out when she's mad or lying. I wish I could meet you someday (but still doubt I could keep up with you). I totally get your sense of humor. My sarcastic sense of humor and mimicking of others has gotten lots of laughs, too. (And sometimes gotten me in trouble. I spent a LOT of time in the principal's office in high school because of my 'smart mouth'!) Maybe I'll run into you in NYC when I'm there in the next month or so. Stay real! You are both my husband's and my favorite!
