Did Tamra Barney Switch Mothers On “The Real Housewives”?

Yesterday, I worked from home and caught a few minutes of a "Real Housewives of Orange County" marathon. Bravo took it all the way back to season three. The episode I glimpsed was the one in which Tamra Barney celebrated her 40th birthday on a yacht. I wasn't intrigued by the diamond Rolex…

Tamra And Simon Of “The Real Housewives Of Orange County” Are Dunzo

On last night's episode of "The Real Housewives Of Orange County"—which, face it, you weren't watching because you were occupado with "Jersey Shore"—Tamra and Simon's marital problems seemed to hit a fever pitch. Funny (OK, completely wrong word) that the episode should air the very week that Simon actually files for divorce. While…

“Real Housewife” Lynne Curtin Gets Even More Loopy

Lynne Curtin is my second favorite cast member on "The Real Housewives of Orange County," probably because she doesn't take herself or anything seriously. Last season, I kept wondering what made her so loopy and lackadaisical. This season, the mystery was narrowed down a bit. When she appeared on Bravo's "Watch What…

“The Real Housewives Of Orange County” Finally Gets Interesting In The Fifth Season

Although "The Real Housewives of Orange County" was the first in the franchise, the show has been like an annoying stepsister since "The Real Housewives of New York City" premiered, because the O.C. women only seem to shop, booze, and complain. However, that all seems to change in the upcoming fifth season.

“Real Housewife” Gretchen Rossi Is A Millionairess

On "The Real Housewives of Orange County," Gretchen Rossi played the part of resident gold digger. Squired around town by her way-older-than-her auto-exec fiancé Jeff Beitzel, Rossi cooed over the big diamonds that he bought her, but she made it clear to the other cast members that being included in his will didn't…

Sugar Ray Loves Cougars

Mark McGrath and his band Sugar Ray are really into cougars. So much so, that they’ve named their latest album Music for Cougars. While I’m slightly offended that they’re targeting such a specific demographic (oh, and I normally want to vom in my mouth upon hearing the term ‘cougar’), McGrath and his buddies are…

Another “Real Housewives” Arrest And A Few More Rap Sheets

The talent of "The Real Housewives of New York" seem like the classiest and most sophisticated of the housewives bunch. I mean, LuAnn deLesseps is writing a book on etiquette and Alex McCord's sons speak like 15 languages. Plus, the women are actually immersed in New York's high society. But that doesn't mean they don't…

Embrace Your Love Of “The Real Housewives”

Elizabeth Hayt over at The Daily Beast describes Bravo's "Real Housewives" franchise as a "post-feminist nightmare that preys on women’s shallowest, least-attractive qualities" in her article, "Wives Gone Wild." But she, like the rest of America, can't stop watching. Here's why you should embrace your love of these women, even though they exhibit…

The Atlanta Housewives Put The NYC And OC Housewives To Shame!

Instead of enjoying the season premiere episode of "The Real Housewives of New York City" last night, I just kept thinking about how much I missed the Atlanta housewives. The New York housewives, and Orange County for that matter, have nothing on those ladies. Let's face it, "Atlanta" brought the drama in it…

Bronx Mogli has been dethroned. Mars Merkaba, Erykah Badu's newborn, now has the strangest celebrity baby name. [Dlisted] Lynne from "The Real Housewives of Orange County" is dumb as a box of white rice. Not only is she not sure there's air conditioning in her home, but she also thinks horseradish comes from…

In Defense Of A Semi-Real Semi-Housewife

A New York Post TV critic has a real problem with the women on Bravo's "The Real Housewives of Orange County." But we think Linda Stasi, the critic, should cut these women some slack, especially Gretchen Rossi. After all, we really can't expect much from these saline/silicon-inflated women. I'll make my…
