Thank you to Bravo for giving us "Million Dollar Decorators." It has been almost 10 years since you've given us a show that we want to watch. "Boy meets Boy" was genius, and the original "Real Housewives of Orange County" was good. Those ladies (except Vicky) looked as though they were going to be a real life version of "Desperate Housewives;" most of them had husbands and children. They were real women with real problems. Yeah, it wasn't always smooth sailing, but they were an honest portrayal of families in the early 21st Century. Then Dr. Slade became Mr. Hyde, and the series degerated from "house wives" to spoiled petulant fame-seeking prostitutes. I haven't watched the "house wives" other than New Jersey, because, again, all of these women seemed real.
Nobody wants to watch Jeff Lewis. After he lost Dale and Ryan, there is no need to waste my time on that show.
Million Dollar Listing could be good. Thanks for getting rid of Chad; I don't want anyone handling business for me if he has never heard of "Dorian Grey."
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you for giving us Kathryn, Martyn, and Jeff and Ross. They are real people, and they are so sympathetic. They really work for their clients, and they don't treat the television viewers as though we are stupid. (For your marketing department's demographics, I am a member of Mensa. I drive a Mercedes (just a small C class one), drink Ketel One Vodka, and have most of my clothes made for me by Armani.)
If I have to hear the "Countess" comment one more time on what is "classy," I'll puke. I know many people who have much finer pedigrees than hers, and they NEVER talk about it, and they certainly don't appear on television in blouses that are unbuttoned down to her knee caps.
Over the last few seasons Bravo TV had been declining into the last stop for M list celebrities before they shipped them to some sort of tent community in the desert. With "Million Dollar Decorators" and "Million Dollar Lisings (both LA and NYC), you should be getting a call any day now from Madonna on what she needs to do to "reinvent" herself.
Yes, I am one of the sucessful (totally closeted) young men in the middle of the country who doesn't really have the option of being open about his sexual orientation. Nobody ever just picks me out, and it would really harm my business if I were honest. (I did think that it was interesting that Madison was concerned that-if he lived life as an openly gay man in WEST HOLLYWOOD -that it might hurt his business.) Imagine my work environment.
As I said, I am a businessman, and you have ad time to sell for your shows. There are gay men and women who have money to spend with the companies brave enough to sponsor shows that depict us as we REALLY are. I know that it is another network, but I have no idea who watches RuPaul. I totally respect her right to be the person she wants to be, but I am not going to watch it; so I have no idea who her sponsors are.
Please, please, please give us more of Kathryn, Martyn, Jeffery (JAM-as Ross calls him) and Ross. Watching what they do for their clients is interesting, and the way that they interact with them is interesting, BUT the truth is that they just look good doing it on your network. And-one more request-offer Cheyenne Jackson a guest slot on "See what happens....." wearing nothing but a towel!!
Thank you again. What you bring into my home gives me hope for what my life could be if I work hard and become proficient enough at my profession (finance) that I am offered a high paying job in a very, very large city in the US.
