While Housewives come and go on these shows, this season of Real Housewives of New York City has experienced a major cast upheaval. Out are Jill, Alex, Kelly and Cindy, with only Ramona, LuAnn and Sonja surviving the reaping. To provide some new blood (not to mention more drama), the show welcomed aboard Aviva, Carole and Heather. But can these ladies really fill the shoes of the likes of Jill and Kelly? Well, no one brought out any jelly beans and started spouting off about "satchels of gold" in the season premiere, and there was no screeching of "Bobby" in the most annoying whine ever, so we're skeptical. Here's how the new gals did in their debut effort:
The latest season of The Real Housewives of Orange County kicked off last night, and after the tumultuous battle of the blondes during the reunion last year, we had high hopes for fireworks in this premiere. And we thought that the new brunette cast member would really shake things up. Well, color us let down so far.
Welcome to the "Let's bash on Brandi" segment of this reunion -- but at least in her case, she bites back. Thank God for her, or else we would have fallen asleep during the episode.
Last night was the first of three installments of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills reunion, and while we've only just scratched the surface of the craziness with these women, there were already some very memorable moments:
We expected there to be some uncomfortable moments in the Season 2 premiere of The Real Housewives Beverly Hills, given the recent suicide of Taylor's husband Russell Armstrong, and there were. But somewhat surprisingly, some of them had absolutely nothing to do with Armstrong and Taylor's relationship. Good for the other insanely rich ladies for really stepping it up this season and helping to spread the wealth of uncomfortableness and ridiculousness all around.
First off, either my tolerance has improved in the past week, or the ladies were slightly less deafening last night. Only marginally, but it still seemed like they had maybe lost some steam. There weren't even really any good zingers, just a rehashing of the Herman Munster shoes and whatnot. Still, there were a few entertaining moments amidst the nitpicky fights. Here are the highlights:
The Countess (aka LuAnn de Lesseps) is going to be on an upcoming episode of Law & Order: SVU, and not just because they've already cycled through every available New York-based actor/waiter twice. The Countess will be "acting" as an art patron who is posing semi-nude for a painter. Wonder if the painting she already has in her boudoir will be used as a prop? Anyway, since she's the first Real Housewives star to land a real acting gig (and no, we're not counting Sheree's community theater thing or the off-off-Broadway show some of the Jersey girls do, or the softcore porn movie Camille was in) it got us thinking about other shows that the various Housewives could "act" in.
We knew that those dads from Teen Mom 3 would be back on the list in no time.
