I have written about The Real Housewives...a lot. I stopped watching the franchise crapfests a while ago, but I still catch clips online every week. Which is good, because, you know, I like to keep tabs on the unraveling of society. What if some half-silicone wealthy woman thinks of a new way to humiliate herself and the entire human race -- and I miss it? I can't have that. So, here they are, fighting the good fight, continuing to reinforce the worst stereotypes, and proving that many people value a cover of Us Weekly more than the last shreds of self-respect they've locked up in a safe deposit box somewhere. Enjoy. Oh, and if you want to read a longer, less weary evaluation of The Real Housewives and the mark they've left, you can do so here. Oh, and here. And also, um, here.
