Desperately Seeking Ratings

Last night in NYC at Touch, Bravo TV held a premiere screening event for the new season of The Real Housewives of New York City which is a sequel of sorts to their The Real Housewives of Orange County three season long series. Here are a few pics of the housewives (and one unfortunate-looking househusband) themselves at last night's affair:

Dear Lord above ... this show looks so deliciously tragic, words cannot even express. I have been a minor fan of OC Housewives show mainly because watching those horrible people in action makes me feel so much better about myself (then again, on the other hand it makes me kinda hate myself for even paying attention). David and I watched the preview ep of the NYC Housewives show on Bravo over the weekend and it looks so good ... because it looks so bad. I think my fave Housewife has to be Alex McCord who is married to Simon van Kempen (the ridic-looking fellow in the last pic who looks as if he picked out his outfit at a yard sale at the Neverland Ranch). I'm convinced she/they are going to be the most entertaining pair to watch -- if only for their fashion choices alone (the preview ep showed the couple shopping for designer clothes together, explaining that they don't like to collect art and would rather spend exorbitant amounts of money on clothes -- and then they proceeded to try on and purchase the fugliest clothes that were available ... that's not bad TV ... but then again, I'm a fan of Flavor of Love [which is sooo good this season] so, maybe I'm not the person to be listening to about this sort of thing). In any regard, The Real Housewives of New York City premieres on Bravo tonight at 11pm ET ... set those DVRs. [Source]
