It's a reality show about 5 snooty-tooty women who happen to live in a gated community in a suburb of L.A. It's disgusting. These women represent everything I hate about being a woman. They are vain, self-absorbed, catty, snobby and down right cruel to each other. It makes me sick.
And yet I never miss an episode.
In my defense, it was Uberman who got me hooked on it. Apparently this is what is on in the break room at work when he eats his lunch. And you know how men are, if there's no remote in sight they won't get up to change the channel. So a week later he is timing his lunch to coincide with the Housewives.
Anyhoo, end tangent.
There are so many great advantages to being a woman. We have better shoes. We can wear pink without being accused of being gay. Most of us don't have to shave our faces every day. We get that whole magical experience of carrying a baby for nine months and then squeezing it out of our nether regions. We feel. Do you know what I mean? Women are emotional, we don't need to apologize for that. We feel for people. We feel for each other in a way that men don't. Because they are too wrapped up in being manly.
And I know I have ranted about this before, but the women on this show, they represent everything bad about being a women. All the ugliness. The competition. The judgement. The backstabbing. All the reasons why men make fun of us. How can we even defend ourselves?
These women are so self absorbed and obsessed with how they look. I don't have a problem with women who want to look good. I want to look good. Don't we all? But when your whole focus is what you look like on the outside and you completely ignore the fact that you are a raving bitch on the inside, you have a problem with your priorities.
And I know!! I am watching it! I have no one to blame but myself.
I'm just tired of all this behavior in real life. And now here someone goes and puts it on TV and glorifies it. And then idiots like me watch the stupid show. And it breaks my heart that I am raising a little girl who will very soon run across girls like this. It starts on the playground, don't you remember?
I am so disgusted with myself.
