Bravo TV’s Introductions From the Trash Heap

Let us say, for the sake of discussion, that you met six women and they were all given seven seconds to introduce themselves to you: not by name but by telling you about their perspective on life.

And considering the vast realm of things they could possibly say, this is what they actually said:

Woman #1:

“The word on the street is that I’m the word on the street.”

Woman #2:

“In Potomac, it’s not about who you know, it’s about who you are – and I’m everything.”

Woman #3:

“I’m a fallen Valley girl. It’s my legacy and my calling.”

Woman #4:

I don’t have a cookie-cutter life and I’m not apologizing for it.

Woman #5:

“If I don’t know who you are then you are not worth knowing.”

Woman #6:

“Throw this spring chicken into the cougar’s den and let the games begin.”

housewivesWell, these aren’t characters from the pen of a creative writer. No, they’re the latest pieces of human waste around which the Bravo network has built its latest offensive offering: Real Housewives of Potomac.

As obnoxious as the “Real Housewives” premise and the women who star in such offerings are, you have to hand it to the folks at Bravo: they have that real trailer park touch, because these folks are straight off the trash heap of life.

    I just ordered a set of blueprints from Popular Mechanics. Construction on my ‘ark’ will begin upon arrival of these plans. The shows of Bravo suggest to me that the end is near. Just how low, can societies values go?

    They say history repeats itself……I’ll take my chances on the high seas.

      Well, you won’t need to include these housewives on your ark because they’re a mutant of a species and not an actual species themselves. And Popular Mechanics! I had no idea that was still around. I may be the least mechanical guy you’ll ever meet but my father subscribed when I was a kid and I read it cover to cover every month and loved it.

    And many who watch this crap yearn to be these women. Scary as hell.

      It used to be that you had to accomplish something to become rich and famous. Now, just attracting attention and behaving badly will get the job done. VERY scary.

    It keeps getting worse. Bright side? I can figure out who the Trump voters are. He loves the undereducated.

      Remember Syms, the discount clothing chain? It’s motto used to be “An educated consumer is our best customer.” Well, for Trump, it’s “An uneducated voter is my best friend.” We keep waiting for his balloon to burst and it’s… just…not…bursting.
