How many “Housewives” shows do we need?
I watched a show last night called “Mob Wives.” I have had it. Back when we had the Desperate Housewives, I thought that was one too many housewives shows. Now you can’t even count them on two soapy dishwater hands, it’s become a pandemic.
Is it just a fad that there are so many “reality” shows featuring housewives? I hope so. The only thing these shows do is put these women, and housewives in general, in a bad light. You would think that real housewives would hate these shows. But no, they gobble them up like Peggy Bundy, from Married with Children, did with Bon-Bons watching Oprah. It’s ridiculous.
Let’s count the ways we have failed:
- Mob Wives
- NFL Wives
- NBA Wives
- Real Housewives of New York
- Real Housewives of Miami
- Real Housewives of New Jersey
- Real Housewives of Orange County
- Real Housewives of Washington DC
- Real Housewives of LA
God, I’m absolutely certain that I’m missing a few hundred. Please help me out here. You know what housewives show I would watch? How about “The Real Housewives of Saudi Arabia?” That would keep you on your toes, huh?
I joke, but this isn’t funny. As someone trying to break into the entertainment business, it’s so sad the market is completely saturated with this “crap.” So sad…
