The last episode of the housewives reality television show was not quite as exciting as I had hoped. A bit unexpectedly, it was open season on Kelly Bensimon. But Ramona Singer managed to get her last digs in on the Countess Luann de Lesseps.
Watching these types of reality television shows certainly is not a good use of your time. I did not watch this show religiously. As usual, I made up for all the missed shows near the end of the season which is quite easy to do. Since cable just loves to repeat their programming over and over again. I grew up in New York, so I could relate somewhat to the zany characters in the New York City series. But, I certainly would never waste my time watching the housewives of New Jersey, Atlanta, or Orange County.
It turned out that none of housewives particularly liked Kelly Bensimon. So while the reality television show made it look like the spat was strictly between Kelly and Bethenny Frankel, all the other cast members were experiencing the same problem.
If you were glued to the set, then you could have heard Ramona Singer reference the crotch grabbing incident at a wedding with the Countess. Personally, I had missed probably the worst cut of the show. But luckily I came across this video clip where Ramona briefly mentions the Page 6 incident that took place off of the show all because the Countess was foolish enough to have attacked Ramona by calling her “crazy eyes.”
The open season on Kelly Bensimon brought home the reality to me that the entire show is probably fake. These six females being friends off the set is just pure hokum. The interactions between most of these ladies for the entire season was no doubt staged just for the benefit of the show so that these housewives of New York City could rake in some easy money, as if any of them really needed it.
Reality television has been known to break up more than one marriage. In the real world these ladies probably hate each other more than ever now after season two. No doubt they are in it just for the money. I doubt that any of the housewives stays home to watch television at all. Kelly managed to admit that she was not at all familiar with the cast of characters on the show.
