I wish I wasn't addicted to one of the most shallow shows on television.  The Real Housewives of Orange County is like viewing a horrendous train wreck that I cannot keep my eyes away from.  During a winter storm in 2007, I watched a marathon when I couldn't make it to work.  Gradually over the years, the show has gotten crazier, harder to believe, and even more shallow.  Maybe it's the fact I cannot possibly believe that people actually live like this...maybe not...I know it has to be scripted...at least I hope so...

Maybe one of the reasons why I'm getting so perturbed at this show, is that there is a born and bred Missouri girl on there now.  Not so sad that she is from Missouri, but terribly disappointed that others viewing this shallow show may think that Missouri girls are this  self centered and...well...downright stupid.  Having no right to judge, I try not to...I repeat...I try not to...

One of my favorite things is watching the wives faces. They do not move. So much Botox will do that to a face.  The women have beautiful smiles, yet have expressionless faces.  Watch this show, then flip the channel to TVland.  Pay attention to the women from the 70s and 80s.  Their faces literally move with emotion. It's almost refreshing. 

We women of the current decade, do not have to age if we have enough money.  Isn't that awesome?  I guess..

I'm not proud of the fact I have age spots and dark circles, nor am I proud of the fact that I admit right here on my blog that I watch the most shallow show on television.  But, I'm honest.  Maybe it's a way I subconsciously make myself feel better about how I've turned out in life...maybe?
