The Real Housewives of (insert city here) is a great concept. Many people are interested in the lives of the mega rich. But there is nothing real about these housewives, they are consistently trying to impress their friends, and putting on a face for the camera. Perhaps “The true, but most likely exaggerated Housewives of (insert city here)” would be more appropriate. That name is not as catchy.
Shows like The Real Housewives are educational, and expand your mind culturally into a weird niche of the ultra-endowed. Viewers often consider Real Housewives as a distraction them from their own personal problems, hopefully reminding them that trying to gain as much material wealth as possible isn’t a solution. With over 640 episodes on over 6+ spinoffs, Housewives has touched millions of viewers and a plethora of life’s toughest problems. Issues like infidelity, bankruptcy, fraud, alcohol, fighting, divorce and suicide are confronted in the show.
Reality shows are going no where, on the contrary they seem to be taking over. Whether you’re a fan or not, we all have had those days laughing or crying at Pawnstars, Housewives, or any other ‘reality’ show.
