    Ain't America GRAND!!!
    Isn't it just that. Millions losing their jobs, homes, and lives to the current economic depression, and these dirt bags prosper, and there are people stupid enough to enable them by watching this crap.

    Is there any room in Canada?

    Is Canada really so high cultured that there's no trash TV shows up there? No offense to any Canadians here, but I highly doubt that.

    Everything you see and probably some you don't.

    Remember, we are the home of Trailer Park Boys.

    Damn, rain on my parade. I thought Canada was this utopia of niceness and progressiveness.

    On the Real Housewives show, one of the couples is bankrupt. His quote to People was along the lines of "if we didn't live in this mansion (that they obviously can't afford) we wouldn't have gotten the reality show". They get paid $3000 a month for being on the show. Hello? bankrupt to the tune of $11 million to make 3 grand? Wow, all you have to do is something stupid to get a show that stupid people watch. Guess I'll keep going to work.

    I'm a big 'Housewives' fan, but this was unwatchable (I screened it).

    The Salahi woman is frighteningly thin (a storyline this season), sounds like a man, and is fake.

    There's another woman from England whose accent I can barely understand, and I watch BBC regularly!

    There's also underlying racial tensions in the show, something not found in the Atlanta show. It's really off-putting.

    I watched the Real Housewives of Atlanta (seeing as how it's where I'm from), and aside from those bitches having nothing to do with upper Atlanta society, it was a trainwreck that my sister and I found to be . What made it more interesting is that my sister was Sheree Whitfield's daughter's dance instructor a few years back.

    She's met both Sheree and her Ex, Bob Whitfield (the former Falcon's football player), and while she said that Sheree was a tad out there, she was nowhere near as self-absorbed and obnoxious as the was on the show. She also said that Bob Whitfield was an incredibly normal guy who adored his daughter.

    Because of that, I got sucked into one season of the Orange County Idiots, and watched the first two seasons of the NY Housewives - the first season of that trainwreck was bearable, but when Kelly Bensimone (or however you spell that loon's name) joined the cast for season two, she took batshit crazy to a whole new level. I didn't watch the third season as I was pretty much over the same, stupid formulaic "reality" of these women.

    As for the Salahis, I absolutely refuse to watch those stupid famewhores/grifters and their desperate social-climbing. Was it ever determined that the Bravo camera crew was following the Salahis the night they crashed the White House dinner?

    I remember when Bravo was an entertaining network that aired shows of relative substance. Now it seems to have devolved into crappy competitive reality shows (Top Chef excluded), re-runs of House and Law & Order: Criminal Intent, and movies that have been edited within an inch of their lives for questionable language like the word "ass" (yet they can air shows that have women using the word "blowjob."

    Ummm...wtf?

    Bravo cameras are definitely with the Salahi's as the prepare for the White House dinner (they promo them getting ready for the event). They are not inside though, I believe.

    I think the Bravo cameras were not only at/in the vicinity of the initial White House state dinner which the Salahi's "attended", but also the more recent one (for the Mexican PM?), which the Salahi's did not try to get into, but instead were reported to have "only" driven by in their (rented) limo.

    The issue for me is not so much that the Salahi's are complete trash; it's
    Bravo trying to profit from it through their advertisers and audience. I'm not playing along.

    I'm out of patience with all these trashy reality shows that make pseudo-celebrities out of trailer trash people (the NJ housewives come to mind), but IMO the people who enable them by watching their shows are even worse. I hope no one watches the Salahi show.
