They Can’t Be “Real”

It’s my fault. I watched it. All three parts!

Why on earth did I let myself watch the Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion??? Why didn’t you stop me? All.Three.Parts. I’m convinced I’ve lowered my IQ just by watching the foolishness. They went so far as to argue over tweets, people!!! Who tweeted what and who is following who – on TWITTER! Yes, they argued about it. Recessionista is my witness. We talked about this mayhem, on twitter of course! We were both outraged but, couldn’t turn away from the train wreck we were watching.

If I wasn’t sure before, I know now, I couldn’t be a “real” housewife. I think I keep it too real. As in, I would just stop dealing with those crazy folks, contracts or not. I’m not about to raise my blood pressure over a tweet. Seriously, I’d be the first to check out, throw up my two fingers and tell them chicks, “it’s been real”.

Yes, they wouldn’t like me because I wouldn’t bring the unnecessary drama. That’s cool. I’ll wait around for the real show about being a housewife or just a wife period. You know that show that delves into the lives of the working mama or the real stay at home mom. The mama who is always over scheduled because she’s trying to build a thriving career, loving marriage and raise well-rounded children. The mom who isn’t depending on the nanny to guide her kids through life. Yeah, when that show is in production – holla at me! Until then, be a friend, somebody hide my remote!

    That show is for tv purposes no way they are like that in real life I just can’t believe it grown women no I just can’t. It’s better than basketball wives though I will give it that if that’s any good news.

    Girl, the reunion was a HOT mess! I am wondering how much of this is orchestrated and where their real personalities begin.

    Oh when you do find the REAL HOUSEWIFE show, please let me know! LOL.

    I watched this mess! The stuff they argue about is crazy! I can’t believe they hate on Kandi so much! But she has more money then all of them put together so I am happy for her!

    Don’t those shows just suck you in though? It blows my mind that people live like that. Not even close to my “reality”

    I absolutely REFUSED to watch that mess this season. REFUSED. Just like I can’t watch basketball wives. These are grown women, acting like they are still in high school. SMH. It’s just too much for me

      I agree with you on this! I kept hearing about the show and all the nonsense that goes on it, and I really have other things to kill time on other than watching people act a fool on tv.

      I agree with Cam, I WOULD watch a show that talks about real housewives or stay at home moms, or working moms trying to get it all done.

    I’ve never gotten into the Atlanta series but I watch the Orange County girls. I could never be in a show like that because I would always be walking away from their drama. I’m with you on this post but I still love to watch the drama from a distance lol.

    Hi Cam. I love your blog style! Found you over at the blog party. I did not get to see the reunion. But, now I am happy I didn’t.

    LOL I got sucked into that show one season, but I have since then let it go. Twitter keeps me updated on the drama.
    I agree I would just let the drama go….I don’t have the time for that.

    So…to be honest. I totally watched all three parts also. And the twitter drama cracked me up!! It’s insane. They really should not be able to use their twitter accounts anymore….it never seems to come of any good when they do. 😛

    Art doesn’t always imitate life, I guess. The Real Housewives aren’t so real after all. I wouldn’t bring myself to watch that… You had me at “lowered my IQ” 🙂
