it is actual art. not being fond or a fan of something does not make it not art.
With Jillzarin, Kelly and
SimonAlex off the show I thought it might be safe to watch an episode. WRONG!!! Even if Ramona and LuAnn didn't make me want to throw objects at the TV the show's new infomercial format would.
I still kind of like Heather, am I the only one? Although I am kind of cutting her a little break because her dad just died and I don't think anyone should be held responsible for things they say and do after losing a parent.
Still can't stand the countless and don't like Ramona this year at all. Sonja seems a little desparate too.
From what I learned from Sonja, she is desperate for money. I wonder if she thinks she has to play this vixen role on the show to keep interest in her. If she lets down her guard, she may think she will be too dull and may lose her contract. Maybe she is trying really hard to keep that Bravo money coming in. THat's all I can figure. What woman in her right mind would act like a monkey in heat the way she does? What else could it be, if not the money? Still, it's difficult to believe they could pay her enough to behave that way. Does anyone know if she acted that way BEFORE going on the show? As I recall, she was not like that when she first came on board.
I like the entire cast with the possible exception of LuAnne who I find to be the most pretentious of the bunch. Although, in Season 1, we saw her good side (albeit clueless side....remember the girl whose weight she commented on?).
All but LuAnne have overcome real - and serious obstacles. A lost leg, a sickly child in need of constant care, and abusive father, the death of husband at an early age, near bankruptcy (Sonya).
They have all fought and made something of their lives. My tune may change as the season goes on, but for now, I really don't care if they have unpleasant sides to them on occassion. At the core, they are strong, smart, and accomplished individuals. And, I'd say that all are pretty good parents and spouses.
Special thanks to Bravo for giving us a crop like this. Enough with the "characters", e.g. Kelly Bensimone, etc.
Reg. using the show as a platform for their businesses, I say more power to them. It's a gift. Only fools or seriously lost individuals don't take advantage of this opportunity to make what they have better. I hope Sonya gets on the stick and makes this work.
