    Reality Train Wreck

  • Published: Mar 26th, 2008

A couple of weeks ago Buffie posted on one of our forums that she watched a Reality TV show called ‘The Real Housewives of NYC” on Bravo.  We sent each other a couple of private messages and I was compelled to tune in.

Okay – I admit it, I am the woman who LOATHES Reality TV, and I was hooked.  I was so there.  I am usually the one who looks away when there’s an accident on the road.  I won’t watch morbid, I turn away from other people’s embarrassing moments. But this show is impossible to turn away from.  It has put the T in train wreck.  OH MY GOD!

Five rich NYC women who are really wannabe people.  What’s a wannabe people?  Someone who is striving desperately to be a human being.  Someone who is working at some point in their tenure on this planet to deserve the title of a real person.  They aren’t there yet, or maybe they were and somehow lost their way in their efforts to “BE” somebody.

The fascination can be summed up in listing some of the key moments of the show:

  • 40 something women having a fight because one of them wasn’t invited to a party
  • A woman walking out of a fashion show because she wasn’t put in a front row seat
  • A woman taking her 14 year old daughter to buy a couple of school outfits that cost $2000.00 (that’s not a typo)
  • Another woman on vacation, leaves her two children with the nanny, while she and her husband go shopping and buy her over $85,000 worth of dresses.  I think she purchased 4 outfits.
  • Four women playing a tennis match in a South Hampton backyard and acting as if they are playing at the US Open and actually getting pissed at each other when they don’t score a point.

Need I go on? Uh – that would be a no.

So – when it comes to Reality TV, what are some of the moments that you simply cannot turn away from?

    I saw only one episode of that show, and you are right…. total trainwreck. The part I remember is that they were in the Hamptons and went to the Hampton Classic Horse Show to watch one of the ladies daughter compete in the pony classes, and the lady did not even recognize her own daughter. This is when you know the kids spend too much time with the nanny 🙁

    I think I see enough of the train wreck in action on online blogs. I really don’t want to watch it on TV, which might be why I never got into the reality shows.
