Another week of The Real Housewives of New Jersey that was more fizzle than spark. But when you start off the season with a drunken brawl at a baby’s christening, I’m not sure there is anywhere to go but down. Well, one could dramatically chuck some wine at another housewife’s face to amp things up. Oh, that’s right – The Real Housewives of Orange County already have that on lock.
I’m fully prepared to defend my claim that Orange County is the best of the Real Housewives franchises, by far. Case in point: this week’s premiere episode where every moment of the show was filled with frustrating, ridiculous, and delectable drama. There were awkward phone conversations, marital issues, fights at parties, gossip in limos, alcoholic rages, and THE BEST upcoming season preview ever. They didn’t even need to include the new housewife or Lynn’s spacey and incomprehensible comments to have me glued to the TV with a smile on my face.
