Flashback Friday-The Real Housewives (2006-Present)

A generation ago, reality television was something new and different. These days, every network is eagerly adding reality television to their programming schedule. Bravo is no different.

In 2006, the network introduced a new series to audiences: The Real Housewives of Orange County. The series followed the lives of a group of upper class women living in Southern California. Seeing that audiences were responding to the program, the executives began to expand the series to other cities. In the 13 years that Real Housewives have been on the air, the series has expanded to eight other cities and continues to be a staple of the Bravo schedule.

I have to admit that I watched Real Housewives for the few seasons. It was engaging, if not a little mind numbing. But then I got bored and stopped watching because each new spin-off was a replica of the previous season and city.

Do  I recommend it? No.
