The reality of my addiction


{ Blog Swapping Series, Part 8: }

On Friday you enjoyed our blog swap with Girly Obsessions for an eighth time. Ash shared her love for the perfect Christmas card… but don’t forget to enjoy our obsessions. Check out my post, where I tell you all about my obsession with the Real Housewives. Of any county. Of any state.


I am admittedly a bit self righteous about intellectual activities, interests and pursuits. That’s what happens when your parent is a university professor. My sister and I are the kind of people that find historical tours and afternoons at art museums fun. However (this is the part where I admit to being a total and complete hypocrite), I have a slight problem. I watch multiple series of Real Housewives on the sly. And I love every single second of it.


After sampling all the Real Housewives portfolio has to offer I’ve come down to 4 casts. However, my love started with the original Orange County cast. First I saw just the hair extensions, spray tans, bad parenting and broken marriages… then something weird happened. I bonded with the characters.

Since then I added New York City, New Jersey, and Beverly Hills to my repertoire. Each group of friends has a different vibe and dynamic. You know there’s something wrong with you when you find yourself taking sides in the deliciously awful cat fights that take place. When they recently reworked the cast of NYC I was actually taken aback. What do you mean you took Kelly Bensimon off the show?! I do have to admit that addition of Aviva Drescher has brought some real quality, on the edge of my seat with a glass of wine in hand, fawkward conversations.


On the flip side for every cast there are the girls that leave me thinking that we could hang out and have great conversation. Melissa Gorga, I got your back any day. Taylor Armstrong, let’s sit with a cocktail and overanalyze stuff together. Carol Radziwill, we could just shop and pretend we’re above it all.

Not to worry. I do actually have friends. Ash is one of them.
