So the last post gave you substance (#thefoodstampchallenge) but now I want to discuss some of the madness that has been going on in this crazy cheap entertainment factory we call Reality TV. Apparently, when it comes to Reality TV women are #winning (or maybe not). Just about all the major reality television shows are made up of predominately women. I guess we as women never shake that overly dramatic, “My life is coming to an end because the guy I’m in love with doesn’t want me” mindset we had as teens. Whatever the reason, women in the last couple of years have made for good television.
Just in case you have been living under a rock or, like me, just got cable in the last couple of months and have missed all the prime time drama, let me update you on the Ladies of Reality TV (Disclaimer: there is not a great deal of lady-like behavior, unfortunately).
Basketball Wives L.A. Season 1: I really don’t have much to say about this show other than Jackie is ratchet and I am mad that it took the ladies 10 episodes to realize it. And once again we have another “Wives” show with no wives (now that I think about it there are only 2 wives of 6 on the Real Housewives of Atlanta).
Love and Hip Hop Season 2: I really don’t have much to say about this show other than Chrissy and Nene Leakes have the same requirements in their contracts (Fight.) and Nancy Jones (Rapper Jim Jones’ mother) should never rap again and she needs to stop shopping at Citi Trendz.
The Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 4: Out of Bravo’s slew of The Real Housewives… series, this one takes the cake, or peach, and rightfully so (Atlanta is the highest rating of The Real Housewives series if I’m not mistaken). And the season opener did not leave thousands of fans disappointed. Nene Leakes lets us know episode one that she is “rich” and that she just got done cashing a “Trump Check” (Nene was on last season’s Celebrity Apprentice). She [Nene] also opens up the season with loudly getting into it, publicly like only Nene can, with Sheree over a business deal. If you are a long time watcher of the show you know that Nene gets into it with one of the wives every season (I think it is in her contract to do so). Some other highlights are Kandi Burgess is opening an adult toy line, Kim Zolciak is pregnant by Atlanta Falcon football player, Kory Something, and Phaedra Parks wants to open a funeral home. And Cynthia is as far as I’m concerned Nene’s “Sweetie”.
