All I can say is that those Housewives fans must be mad, crazy voters. There's no way whatsoever that that result was fair. Bethenny wasn't just a little bit behind the other two. She was over twenty points behind them.
I think Brooke knew, somehow, that they were leaving, because she looked very unhappy standing there. If SWTS wants to have any kind of legitimacy, even for a silly celebrity competition show, they have to pull out all the stops to make sure Rebecca wins. Otherwise, it's just a huge joke.
I guess if I had ever watched a Housewives of anywhere series I might have some vague notion of why this happened, but I haven't and I haven't any interest in starting now. I don't watch All My Children either, though I'm somewhat familiar with Rebecca from her years at Guiding Light. That's not why I think she should win, however. She's simply acres better than Bethenny. That's why she should win.
