Dear Diary,

I have a shocking, shameful, and possibly reputation-destroying confession to make. Somehow during one of my basic cable channel-surfing blackouts, I came across the Real Housewives of Orange County on Bravo. I know, I KNOW. Sadly, what was a slight diversion from my usual diet of Anthony Bourdain and Golden Girls reruns turned into a full-blown addiction.

This secret has been eating me up inside. But now that it's out, I'm hoping to find someone, ANYONE else who watches this horrible show.

And I'm hoping that person can tell my why that woman Quinn has, like, 28 inch cleavage. WTF?

I am also addicted but do not have regular access to the show. When I do, I go to the Bravo website to see when they're having a marathon and plan my week accordingly. I also watch it in a room, alone with the shades drawn. Pretty sure I have a problem...

So what is the deal with Laurie's lips? They used to not look like that. And sure Quinn dates younger men but they're not attractive and, though I have no room to talk, she might think of hitting the gym before she wears some of those outfits out in public. Another option would be to buy a mirror. One more thing that puzzles me: You know the mom of the girls whose dad died and left all his money to his Asian wife? How does she have any money? She lives in a very nice house. Does she earn all her money from forcing her daughter to pose provacatively to promote denim sales?

Right, well, now I think I'll do a google search for a self-help program.

Rachel. Rachel! My new best friend. Yes, I wonder how she has money. And another issue is that they all sell real estate or insurance or something, so do they really qualify as "housewives"? Still. Enormously entertaining to me for some inexplicable reason.

Rachel said...

You make an excellent point regarding employment. Also, several are not married which is I assumed was a prerequisite to being labeled a "housewife." Neither of these things are enough to make me stop watching.

So happy you made your confession, Fluffy!

I, too, am a victim of this show's addictiveness! My husband is one step away from giving me an intervention. I think a small family lives in Quinn's cleavage. I'm not gay, but I cannot quit staring at it. It's the 8th wonder of the world.

Your confession has inspired me to leave the shadows...I too, am totally addicted to the Housewives.
In the beginning it was,
"Are these people for real?"
Now it's,
"I wonder what color scheme Lauri and George chose for their wedding?"

I know - terrifying.

Best of luck...and if you want to feel especially brilliant and could use a solid laugh read their blogs.

I have to watch this show in private as my husband thinks all those women should be killed. He obviously doesn't understand my obsession.

I think Lauri had a cleft pallette? (sp?) And when Quinn wears spaghetti strap tank tops - I have no idea how she keeps the girls in check. The cleavage is ridiculous!

What about Jeana's bags under her eyes? Yikes! that's tragic.

I am so addicted to this show it's sad. AND, one of my sisters lives in OC w/ her family so I'm always calling and asking her about the wives and telling her places she needs to go eat. She said all the "real" OC residents are so annoyed w/ these ladies and their portrayal b/c they live in Coto and that's not "real" OC. Whatever. All I know is I'm glad Jo and Slade are off the show b/c they were so annoying. Also, Laurie looks SO HORRIBLE this season w/ all that plastic surgery. She looked way better 2 seasons ago. Now she looks so fake and terrible! I think she actually looks older than she is!

Fluffy Windover said...

WOW. I'm so glad I'm not alone in this. I really need to watch all the back episodes. So Laurie didn't always look like that? Because wow, she is NOT lookin' good. Oh, also... the other Tammy, the brown-haired one whose husband died? Her daughter is a TRAIN WRECK. And it is AWESOME.

I have been watching this show from day one and am a true addict. I cannot wait for tomorrow night's finale and to see the previews for the new series about the Real Housewives of New York City. This should be interesting!!

Quinn's cleavage is quite scary but I must say I hope my skin stands the test of time as hers has and I look that great in my mid forties.


Southern Fried Girl said...

Pssst. Over here.

Um, I might know this girl. She is like smart and can put sentences together and everything.


She quite possibly has watched this show from the very beginning and got sucked right in.

All 3 seasons.

She may have even bought season 1 on DVD for her BFF for Xmas.

So if you have any questions or whatever, I can maybe, ya know, put you in contact with me...HER. Her.

And as for Quinn's cleavage, being that I'd never watch such filth and brain numbing tv, I really can't comment except to say that my friend said that she thinks she is hiding the small dude from Fantasy Island in there.

Well, thank goodness I don't watch THAT show. It sounds just awful.

Did anyone else notice how Botoxed Tamara's face was at her 40th b-day party. A 40k Rolex and she can barely show her excitement hahaha


Ashley said...

I've done it too. It is totally shameful.

Do NOT, let me repeat, DO NOT get sucked into Paradise Hotel 2 like I'm about to...that's just trashy.
