The Real Housewives & Play-Wives Shows
This of course includes all the “Real Housewives shows,” “Basketball Wives,” “Mob Wives,” and let’s not forget the women of “Love & Hip Hop.” We should probably disregard these “wives” from jump since most of the women featured are usually either divorced, the mother of some retired athlete’s child, or were never offered a ring in the first place. Finding an actual, in-the-flesh current wife is like finding a four leaf clover: good luck! But the drama is what keeps us coming back. Sure, as women we shouldn’t want other women making us all look like catty teenagers who live their lives only to chase after the next Pro Bowler, but we live to talk about it. To point out the cast members we can’t stand and of course to claim what what we “would have done” in a similar confrontational situation (“That couldn’t have been me girl!”). You either love ‘em or hate ‘em. But you’ll watch ‘em for sure.
