I’m a little in awe of the fact that Teresa Guidice from Real Housewives New Jersey filed for bankruptcy. Citing something close to $16,500 in money coming in & close to $16,500 going out. Hey, I am not here to cast stones, given I am living with massive student loans over my own head. And MY decisions aren’t being picked apart so I am NOT going to pick apart hers or her families. I like her. BUT I am wondering how the heck Bravo TV gets away with paying about $3,333 a month to these women?
While the Real Housewives franchise might not be everyone’s cup of tea, although it is one the favorites of Ree Drummond, you know The Pioneer Woman? And she has cows, cows are wholesome so she’s like warm apple pie & that means Real Housewives is totally wholesome (wait was that whole thing too much?). Anyway, I am shocked at how little these ladies are making. They bring ad dollars & viewers who know they shouldn’t be watching.
Viewers whose Hubbies tell them how their brains are rotting by watching it. Viewers who swear it’s sociological research to watch, you know pop culture & subcultures all rolled into one. You know, viewers like me.
I mean Teresa is the Housewife whose table flip was heard around the world! That should count for something. Oh & perhaps there could be some discussion of living within your means & how this whole thing is indicative of the gimme culture we live in, but that’s too real for me, I’d rather pretend it’s all mansions & fast cash sitting here in my bungalow, with four kids & working to pay debt off every month whether I like it or not.
