Real Housewives of New Jersey Recap: Revenge of the Squareboob Edition

Danielle-real-housewives-new-jersey Welcome to the first week of Real Housewives of New Jersey Minus One! Dina - aka Captain Zentastic - has left the show to focus on her family, her charity, and her horrifying cadre of hairless cats. Whatever shall we do? Wherever shall we go? There's only one way to find out, people: much like pulling off a band-aid or taking our first dip of the year into the chilly Atlantic, you've just gotta close your eyes... and go all-in.

When Housewives Start Getting Real, Maybe We Should Stop Watching

Kelly-bensimon Last night's finale of the three-part Real Housewives of New York reunion again addressed the mental stability (or lack thereof) of castmember Kelly Killoren Bensimon. Bensimon spurred many a Twitter "OMGWTF" with her erratic, emotional behavior throughout this season of RHoNY, culminating in a full-on meltdown during a weekend getaway with other castmates, where she accused fellow Housewife Alex McCord of being a "vampire", claimed Housewife Bethenny Frankel was trying to kill her, and verbally spouted a lengthy barrage of incoherent thoughts that even confused Lost fans. I don't know about you guys, but that type of incident generally harshes the buzz of a beachfront vacay.

Real Housewives of New Jersey Recap: Ed Hardy T-Shirt Baby Edition

Danielle-Real-Housewives-of-New-JerseyCan we all agree that the "real" in Real Housewives of New Jersey, Season 2 is an entirely subjective term?

Real Housewives of New Jersey Recap: Hairless Cats Edition

Real-housewives-of-new-jersey-season-2The more deeply into Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 2 we plunge, the more odd a dichotomy it becomes. On the one hand, as a record of trash culture, it's at once fascinating and kind of horribly wonderful. On the other hand... as an on-screen example of parenting in motion, it's a far more uncomfortable experience.

Blind Item Revealed: Real Housewives Kim Zolciak Comes Out of the Closet

Kim zolciak and tracy youngIt strikes me that The Real Housewives are neither "real" nor "housewives," and I guess that's why I'm not a fan of the show.  For me, a "real housewife" isn't a plastic woman bedecked with jewels and enormous fake breasts, but that's just me. I grew up in a trailer park, where "real housewives" were women in curlers and robes smoking Virginia Slims while they figured out how to pay the month's bills. That I'm no fan of the show is of no significance, though, because my preferred television programming includes mostly crime and addiction documentaries. I'm certainly not one to throw stones at birds or glass houses.  Or whatever.  I loves me a good blind item, though, so when I discovered the following CDAN blind had been revealed, I squeed with glee.  Even though, you know, I don't really know who these people are.  STILL.  A reveal is a reveal.
