Oh Housewives – Why are you so addictive?
As the Real Housewives of both New Jersey and New York get crazier and crazier this year – I ponder “Why am I so addicted?” What keeps me coming back for more – way past the point of brain cell degradation? I think it’s the Doctor Jekyll/Mr Hyde phenomena. On the surface, these women are smart, beautiful and have their shit together. But pull one thread and all of that unravels. They have the same insecurities of a thirteen year old. They are jealous, combative, and sometimes just plain bonkers (yes, Kelly, I am looking at you). Yet, even through all of that, they make it through mostly unscathed. It’s fun to be a voyeur into someone’s crazy because usually the only crazy I get to experience is my own.
