We also, watched The Real Housewives of the OC, and had a deep discussion on what our housewife tagline would be. There's a whole website devoted to them, and here are my favorites:
"My tank is full and I'm driving into my future." Vicki from OC, Season 7
"I asked, I believed, I received." Kim from Atlanta, Season 3
"To some people, living elegantly just comes naturally." Obviously Countess Luann, Season 3
I came up with:
"I'm kind of insane, but I make it look fabulous."
"Money grows on trees, and I own a Christmas Tree farm."
"If Spanx counts as plastic surgery, consider me altered."
Speaking of Spanx, I was recently in the Macy's Intimates section, a section that still embarrasses me to venture within, and discovered that New York Housewives Bethenny Frankel and Jill Zarin have competing lines of shapewear (which means Spanx, basically.)
Because I am a journalist, I tried both on and here are my findings:
Bethenny's "Skinnygirl Shapers" are WAY sluttier than Jill's, and feel cheap and off-sized. On the plus side, you could theoretically take your clothes off in front of someone else and look like you were wearing sexy lingerie instead of old lady girdles. So, there's that.
Jill offers the appallingly named "Skweez Couture" (seriously). I would say that you can't use the word skweez with couture, only skweez isn't a word. Jill's shapewear works like a motherfucker, but the only way you'd ever let anyone see you anywhere near those flesh-colored bikeshorts is if you were married to Bobby Zarin...
