    I know what you mean. "Work Out" just isn't going to replace these stupid Housewives shows for me. Do we have to wait till 2009 for the OC women again? What will we do?

    OK, so I'm watching the final show again. I wonder why when Luanne gets dressed up the outfit always has giant sequins on it. Is it a countess thing? Bethanny probably has the least money but I have liked so many of her clothes. She also wears them well and I loved one wrap around dress that she wore several episodes ago. She never talks about her clothing and usually looks great. That's all Alex does and she always looks awful.

    They are filming The Real Housewives of New Jersey right now, which will be followed by another season of RHOOC and then finally another season of RHONY. Whats next?? The Real(multiple) Housewives of Zion Ranch?

    When Alex says "I know that everybody feels that their kid's a genius" she's qualifying it with a big fat BUT. But what? Frankensois really is? Oh so silly for us to think that our kids are BUT she really does have a genius! It must feel great to be the only parents out there with a kid that really is smart. She's so much better than us. I hear that huge bags under the eyes are a sign of genius! I have also heard that violence towards hamburgers is a sign of genius! Didn't Einstein have problems, as a child, behaving himself in restaurants? I'm sure that Stephen Hawking's parents attributed his genius to being allowed to play with other people's food! All things that most of us wouldn't allow, for our non-genius kids, but Alex and Si have a real one so I'm sure that they know how to handle the situation.

    Frahnswhaa hardly seems verbal, much less intelligent! This is simply a case of two narcissistic individuals who became parents--they brag about their kids just like they brag about everything else in their lives. Most people are too polite to tell them how obnoxious they are. Bragging about your own children is a major turn-off to anyone who's listening. Just should not be done....no exceptions!

    Ramona: no excuse to be an hour late with no phone call. And whether Alex/Simon are weird or not, screeching at them everytime they are around you does not impress anyone but yourself. I am done with this one, not interested anymore. I just get the "mean girl" 13 year old vibe from her daughter, who is learning from one of the best. I'm also freaked out by her eyes. It's not natural.

    LuAnne: I will not call you COUNTESS, I will not call you Mrs. Deleseppes (whatever), I will call you LuAnne because that is how you came into my home via the television. As far as your behavior to those whose jobs are in service to people like you ... you have time to fix it. Who really cares what "Count Choculah" feels about it, you are American born and should act it. We fought a war to get away from being overly awed by titles.

    Jill: I hate your dog. I hate your attitude towards your dog. Your daughter has a problem with your dog, and her feelings should come first with no repercussions from you. If you really don't hold grudges, then let us never hear about the cooking party you were not invited to ever again. Ramona did have the right to invite whomever she wanted and for whatever reasons ... she just should have been forthright when asked by LUANNE why Jill wasn't there. DRAMA!!

    AlexSimon: ewwww. Get over yourselves, we certainly have. Simon is so phony it's too painful to acknowledge his presence. Alex, when someone invites you to a "girl's night out" and says that hubby can come "if he wears a cocktail dress", that is beyond a hint that the answer is NO. And no, your children arent brilliant. They are brats, through no fault of their own because they have never been made to know the boundaries of acceptable behavior. If I had been at that dinner party, and your little Frankie boy had tried to play with my food, I would have grasped his hand from the plate and given my teacher stare while stating "No." That a$$ dress of hers where all the lines converge is classless. That alone should keep them out of the circles.

    Bethenny: Funny. The materialism could have been handled much better than threatening to skewer someone's eyes out. She seems to handle other's eccentricities well, usually saying something that everyone must be thinking.

    I agree, Bethenny is so funny! I loved the comment she made regarding Jill's outfit she wore to check out the apartment. Bethenny: "Cher phoned, she wants her outfit back". She is so witty! I wish I could slo mo her though, she talks sooo fast! And her accent is a little harsh.

    Come with me now to the year 2038 when Bravo debuts the new show, “ Real Matrons of NYC and Their Grown Children.” Francois is now an effete “thirtysomething” young man, married, living in the Brooklyn fixer-upper his parents gave him as a wedding gift. It is the same home in which he was reared as a prodigy, and he couldn't possibly live in the suburbs! Our scene opens as Francois escorts his wife into a trendy French bistro for breakfast. His wife’s name is not important. This vignette is all about Francois, whose pockets are stuffed with jelly beans, a staple in his diet since he began eating solid food. Francois’ wife wonders why he brought her here. After all, his parents, Alex and Simon have told her that Francois speaks French ever since she began dating him, but to her wonderment, she has never heard him utter a single syllable of French. As the waiter approaches to take their drink orders, Francois looks up and says, at long last, the phrase his parents have drubbed into him since he was 4, “Limonade, s’il vous plait.” At which point, Francois’ wife leaps to her feet, grabs his arm and declares, “’Cois, you spoke French!” As she begins kissing his outstretched arm, reminiscent of Gomez and Morticia Addams, Francois pops four jelly beans into his mouth and turns to the Style section of the “Times” to see what his mother wore to the Met last night. A Sunday just like any other...
