Before the stay-at-home mothers of the world jump on me, I’m by no means knocking women who have opted to make raising their children their full-time jobs while their husbands work. I am, however, just slightly confused how a woman like Porsha Stewart who is neither staying at home taking care of children or keeping house, can claim that what she’s doing is “real work.” I guess the slang PC thing to say here would be “get it how you live,” but I’m not sure I’m a real fan of how this woman is acting like her standard of living is something to applaud and be in awe of.
In her Bravo blog this week, Porsha complained about the shade being thrown on the show “at every turn,” then turns around and throws some of her own, writing:
“I am a real housewife and live an everyday lifestyle, so I’m not accustomed to women acting this way. It’s just starting to seem like there’s going to be some shade at every turn. I genuinely care for[Cynthia], and I just hope I’m wrong. But if not, I now have tough skin and can roll with the punches.”
Porsha was referring to hoping that she’s wrong about her conclusion that Cynthia is just as catty as the rest of the housewives based on her behavior when Porsha tried to give her some tips on the world of pageantry. That statement I could somewhat deal with, but it’s the pretentiousness in the next few lines that I’m so over:
“Well guys I need to go pick up my pooch from the groomer. Until next time!
“P.S. To all the women out there raising a family and taking care of your household, don’t let anyone tell you that your efforts and what you do does not have value or isn’t work! All the love, caring, prayers, and labor it takes to raise a family is a wonderful thing and a blessing to have. Be encouraged!”
Well thank you evangelist Stewart, but if you don’t currently have children, you don’t even clean and shape up your own dog, and I’m sure you have a maid or two cleaning that big ‘ol house, what work do you do pray tell? ‘Just askin.’
