Very Promising Indeed


Grating New York accents, his and hers thong bathing suits, children not of European descent named Johan and Francois . . . how are you going to resist The Real Housewives of New York City? You won't, that's how. Give in, my friends. Give in.

Mark my words--these people will not be nearly as lovable as their OC counterparts. View the evidence here and here, or even better, read the Times review. I'm predicting that I will love to hate Alex (far right in the photo above) the most. What about you?

Set your TiVos (or whatever you modern-day people do) for the premiere Tuesday on Bravo.

I don't know, Bethany might already be nails on the chalkboard for me. I could barely stand her in the Apprentice: Martha Stewart.
Despite her nasaly whining about wanting to get married, I CANNOT WAIT to get this Real Housewife party started!

I CANNOT WAIT FOR THIS TRAINWRECK!!!! I think that Alex girl is so scary when she makes that face after saying she would never live in the burbs in the commercials for the show. Her teeth look like they belong on a demonic Gremlin or something. The one who married a count cracks me up. I guess that should mean something.....if it were the 14th century.

I'm so there.

I can't wait!! I think this will actually be more interesting than the OC version.

Yah Alex and her wacky husband who shop with each other were beyond annoying. what is it that they DO anyway...I didn't see that part.

I'm liking the countess!

omg, i'm a lurker, but i had to comment about this one. i already hate alex. i hate that face she makes on the commercial so much i feel like i catch myself making it because all i do is think about it.

I wonder when these women are going to realize that just because they can buy a ticket to an event that doesn't mean they are a real socialites or will ever be accepted by real socialites who are laughing at them. Can you ever imagine these annoying women hanging out with Aerin Lauder or Tinsley Mortimer or being invited to a Vogue party? I think not.

Oh, here is the link to the premier party, http://www.patrickmcmullan.com/website/pmc_screens/Event_selects.aspx?page=1&Event_ID=10899. The outfits are priceless.

Aaahhh! Guilty pleasures!

Kelly, so hilarious! I have been looking for that commercial so I can get a still of that face. Unattractive on so many levels.

Habitually--I was thinking the same thing! These people are desperate hangers-on, and if they represent "New York society," well then, it's all a big joke. Gonna go check out those outfits.

Can I run to the heartland?
Guess this is what sells? (not to me)

So, now that Season 1 is over, do you love how Alex is the only one with no fur on her jacket?

It just reinforces the fact that she is not very rich, lives in Brooklyn while the rest are in Manhattan, and can't do her hair to save her life.

How i love that show. I can not WAIT for the new season, and the spin-off(s)(according to wiki)

Love you, SGM!
