Set your dvrs, my people! On Monday, the women of The Real Housewives of Orange County will be on Oprah. That's right, you heard me: Oprah is finally recognizing the brilliance that is RHOC! But apparently only to point out how tacky and unsophisticated they look. A writer for O Magazine describes the Orange County look:
1. Hair: blonde and long
2. Skin: very tan (often spray-tanned)
3. Teeth: blindingly white
4. Lips: conspicuously full
5. Noses: pert
6. Breasts: notably large
7. Tummies: flat; hips: nonexistent
8. Nails: long, French-tipped, and square
9. Jewelry: big and frequently diamond
10. Clothes: mostly pastels, corals; formfitting and revealing (SGM would like to add Juicy sweatsuits)
While most people would see this description as being mildly insulting, the OC housewives consider it a recipe for loveliness! After Oprah's staff gives the cast members "make-unders" in an attempt to make them look more polished and age-appropriate, all of them (except Jeana) can't wait to get back to their OC style.
So . . . what do we think of Lauri's make-under?
Oy. The cleavage was there for a reason--to distract us from the face. (sorry Lauri)(but it's true)
See all of the before and after photos here. What do you think?
The new season of RHOC premieres November 25.
