Bravo’s Housewives Can’t Fit in Their Britches

I don’t know how much say Andy Cohen has in the ‘Real Housewives’ shows. During the reunion shows, one gets the impression that although he may not be the head honcho, he’s pretty darn close. Recently, during his one-on-one with Kenya (RHOA), it seemed as if he was siding with Porsche, and as if Kenya was in the wrong. If you watched the reunion fiasco when Porsche went after Kenya, it was clear that Porsche was in the wrong. No, maybe Kenya shouldn’t have had the megaphone, but Kenya has always enjoyed bringing a prop, and no one has ever had a problem with it before. Not long before Porsche attacked her, she implied that she didn’t like how Kenya always came off as a victim, yet immediately after she attacked Kenya, while she laid on the floor kicking and screaming, one of the first things out of her mouth was ‘I have been through sooo much’. Sounded a lot to me like she was the one playing the victim. Andy Cohen should know that yes, Kenya brings drama, but drama also brings ratings. Porsche has become a fairly useless character on the show.

In the beginning, fans went wild over The Real Housewives of Atlanta, but one thing we always see is that at least one character grows far too big for their britches, though it isn’t unheard of for there to be more. What is it with some of these women? They give all women a bad name. Their face is shown on TV, and the next thing you know, they’re gourmet chefs, bakers, authors, models, actresses and singers galore, news anchors, clothing/purse/cosmetic/shoe/wig designers, fitness instructors, wine connoisseurs, talk show hosts, radio show hosts, weather reporters, professional dancers, you name it. Suddenly, the money that they’ve been fortunate enough for Bravo to have been paying them is a mere pittance to them, and their grubby paws are digging in Bravo’s wallet as they a demand a 300% pay increase!

Enter Nene Leakes. It is disgraceful what they pay that woman. Just because a low-budget show was desperate enough to allow her to be part of their cast, she truly believes that she’s a Hollywood starlet. Shame on Bravo for allowing her to remain a part of the RHOA cast. The three whose paychecks deserve to be that fat – Phaedra, Kandi, and Kenya – are reportedly getting considerably less than the likes of Nene and Porsche. The best example, next to Nene, is Heather Dubrow. During her first season, she came across as a somewhat likeable person, although her braggart ways were extremely obvious. Then suddenly, she’s a major movie star! I’m still reeling by the fact that Hot in Cleveland would allow her a cameo, as she’s not a good actress; currently, the other RHOC women are getting more of a taste of her ‘holier-than-thou’ persona, as she’s constantly correcting their grammar, correcting them on the temperature that wine should be chilled at, and continually making them feel like she’s somehow above them. I hope that Bravo has a set of boots prepared, one with Nene Leakes’ name on it, and the other with Heather Dubrow’s, and that they give each the boot, and soon. Perhaps it would make the Real Housewives shows smashing successes and expand their viewership.

Kim Kardashian: Public’s Contradiction

Now, I’ve devoted far too much time to the Kardashian Clan’s nonsense on this blog already, but this blatant contradiction spreading like a plague out there among so many has me stumped. Needless to say, the main culprit is the wannabe wish-I-was-a-celebrity Kim. Everyone’s familiar with the never-ending number of people that loathe the Kardashians, mainly Kim. There is an absolute disgust and hatred of her. Look at the backlash after Vogue had the questionable judgment to cheapen the magazine’s image, all for the sake of the almighty dollar, by allowing the likes of Kim and Kanye West to taint its cover.

So what is the reasoning here? So, so many people cannot stomach Kim (or Kanye for that matter) and many are very vocal about their disgust and hatred of her, but why then did so many of them buy the Vogue magazine? The thing that they forget is that such actions are misinterpreted as actually liking Kim and being interested in seeing her and reading about her even more! Yes, Vogue is probably cheaper than buying a good dart / target set, but still, why allow the twit to feel relevant, or the one that decided to allow her to appear on the cover to feel as if it was a good thing?

Let’s refresh and remember who Kim Kardashian really is: she was the girl who befriended Paris Hilton, knowing that she’d catch some of Paris’s crumbs. When Paris was photographed, Kim knew she could catch the run off and be allowed in the photographs with her, that she might get a few pictures of herself taken after being known as one of Paris’s friends. I might add that she hardly resembled herself now, after all of the work she’s had done, like the gigantic ass she mysteriously didn’t have back then! When she milked the “friendship” with Paris for all it was worth to her, she grew more desperate for attention, so she found the most famous man that she could who was willing to crawl into bed with her and have sex, and of course it had to be filmed. How shocked she acted when there was any interest in releasing the tape, all the while mommy Kris was negotiating the sale of it to the highest bidder. Suddenly when Kim garnered more attention after the tape and Kris Jenner saw an opportunity for herself too, they were allowed a show on E Network where everyone saw just how low they would go to be noticed.

After one well-known man didn’t want to get serious with Kim and she married another for less than three months, she latched on to the only semi-famous man she could get – though not too well liked – and ended up pregnant. In typical Kim fashion, she hid the kid after its birth to build up public curiosity and now this wedding fiasco is the most over-the-top, ludicrous stunt yet. Nonsense like the guests not being able to know the location until hours before the ceremony, no cellphones allowed, all of the guests having to wear designer labels… Who do these clowns think they are!? They honestly seem to believe that they’re true royalty, and yet nothing could be further from the truth.Isn’t it sad that even with all of their money they can’t make themselves relevant? 

As you can tell, anyone would be stumped as to why even one person would purchase the issue of Vogue published with her on the cover. She is not a celebrity, she is not an actress, she’s certainly not a model, or an author, or a even a musician. Even more so, she couldn’t be any further from a style icon – remember when the critics wondered why she was wearing a sofa in public, or her famous whale dress? The only thing she would be an appropriate spokesperson for would be Jenny Craig. All she’s famous for is being a throwback wannabe porn star. Kim Kardashian is her own ‘biggest’ fan. The way she constantly posts pictures of herself proves that. She acts as if she’s concerned about her image, and yet spreads her colossal crack around cyberspace.

Celebrities Not Acting Their Ages

Celebrities need to stop all of the fillers and cosmetic surgeries, even the extremely young girls are now going in to have “work done”. Worse yet, these famous people are sending the message that it’s not okay to age, that growing old is something to deny and be ashamed of! The average woman looks at certain celebrities and wonders why they don’t look nearly as good as the rich and famous! The most ludicrous part of all is that only a small number of actresses are truly beautiful and can honestly say that they look the way God made them, not they way their plastic surgeon made them! There are many actresses that are downright unattractive ( to put it kindly ), but cosmetic surgery works miracles and a good makeup job can do wonders.

There are a few people out there that think that Kim Kardashian is attractive ( mainly Kanye and her family, but still… ), look back at the family photos that were published and compare them to Kim now, she is unrecognizable. The only thing real about Kim is…… uh….. her ego, that’s about all I can think of! Even her skin looked much darker in all of the photos of her younger days that I saw! Maybe it’s Kim’s ego that has ruined her, her face is totally different and she has those ridiculous fish lips! Perfect example of overdoing it, that disgusting picture of her sitting with her back to the camera and her gigantic ass crack eclipsing the camera lens! It’s true that some men like bigger booties but excess, larger than life just becomes morbidly, overblown, downright disgusting, overkill. There is such a thing as too much and rather than Kim “tweak” overall where she needed it, she seemed to become obsessed with herself, especially after the size of her rear end came into question. I mean seriously, morbid obesity isn’t isolated to just one specific body part!

Lindsay Lohan’s face became very odd too, after she reportedly had work done, especially her fish lips gone awry. There isn’t enough space here to list all of the boob jobs that young celebrities have had done, it’s disturbing. The dangerous message being sent from celebrities is that flaws and age are to be ashamed of, stop at nothing, spend anything you need to, just hide all flaws and stop the clock!

Madonna’s face looks unnatural and strange, LaToya Jackson was once attractive but ruined her looks, Daryl Hannah used to be pretty as well and ruined her face with plastic surgery gone wrong. Is there no such thing as a natural beauty, are there any actresses out there that are happy with the way they look, without medical intervention? Are there any actresses in existence that aren’t pathetically trying to hide their age at all costs? Hell, it seems that the famous can’t even date their own age, never caring how they look dating someone that is young enough to be their daughter, grand daughter, grandson, someone old enough to be their grandfather or great grandfather?

I think that the older folks are already treated with disregard in society, television, along with the famous have a strong influence out there and it seems they are behaving badly. Guess those words, act your age hold a lot of truth, it’s just a shame that more people seem unable to really hear them.

Overpopulation

Even in a society in which there are few morals left,  where nothing is held sacred anymore, where most behavior that has been unacceptable through the ages is not only tolerated, but promoted, surprisingly there are still a couple of things that are taboo. Race, religion, homosexuality these things used to be taboo to openly discuss, now days those people that don’t believe in interracial relationships or homosexuality, they are crucified, they are the ones that are punished for their beliefs and / or opinions. But these things are openly practiced now and the issues, while still sensitive topics to many, are talked about and addressed, right or wrong.

Population control / overpopulation, it seems that subject is taboo,  or perhaps it’s more because people feel that there is no possible solution to the problem. Logic dictates that this planet is only so big and that resources, man made or natural, aren’t in endless supply. Unbelievable numbers of species have become extinct and there are vast numbers of others that are on the brink of meeting the same fate, because of their own actions? No, because of mankind, the trees that are critical to our very survival are being chopped down at an alarming rate, certain plant life too has been annihilated. Yet every second of every minute of every day, the population continues to soar.

China used to only allow one child to each couple, some people thought it immoral and I hear that China no longer has that rule. I can’t blame the country though, after all, why should one country do their part while the rest allow endless children? Don’t get me wrong, I love children just like the next person does and it is not about the “children” exactly, it is overpopulation. Look at countries like Africa where the mothers cannot feed one child and yet they have half a dozen more! I know of places here in the United States where certain women keep having children one right after the other, I have heard comments made by women that they need to collect assistance for each kid and that to get the maximum, they need for the kids to fall into certain age groups. Still others want tax breaks and the children seem to help with that! And we can’t forget the Mormon imposter’s that have five or six wives, each of which have six or seven children and always stay pregnant, using a so called religion to justify it!

So what is the answer to the fact that this planet is already overpopulated and there is no end to the problem in sight? I don’t really know but we need to address the issue and soon, no, I’m not saying that we need to create our own version of the “carousel”, like in the movie Logan’s Run ( it’s an old, old movie that many of you may not be familiar with ) but as callous as it might sound, maybe the government needs to look into a solution similar to China’s previous one. Sadly the damage is done as far as those animals that are gone, simply because man wanted to build on what little land the animals had, and because the forests they always lived in are now gone because someone decided they wanted the trees! Another example of ignorance and failure to seek viable solutions, houses don’t always have to be built from wood!

I think we’d all love to believe that as a society, we’ve come a long way, and we have, the problem is that while we’ve come a long way, in what direction have we moved? It might very well be that we have gone backward rather than forward in many aspects. Progress is a good thing when it is positive progress but we cannot turn our heads to the issues that many find unpleasant. Certain places in the world like Africa in certain parts of it, there are children dying of hunger and the women have quite a few kids which they cannot provide for, I have never understood though ( again, not to be callous ) why do they keep having more kids? Isn’t it better to provide birth control? Wouldn’t that be better than watching the children die from hunger? I truly would like to understand that and I’m not saying that it’s only a problem exclusive to that country either.

Sooner or later there will be no more land available, it’s inevitable and there will be only so much food, sources of heat, etc. Hell at this rate there will be no animal species left at all, it is a problem that is one for every last one of us and one that needs to be figured out soon. I know that the government has given some thought to this, I don’t see how they couldn’t, they had to be able to see this coming decades ago! Sadly for us, we’re not a society where each person can do their part on their own, let’s hope the government can come up with a solution soon that will benefit all of us in the long run.
