Here is a confession - I have actually watched and read all the blogs and viewer comments for Bravo TV's "The Real Housewives of...(fill in the blank - I watch 'em all.)" Yup, every table flipping, backstabbing, couldn't-actually-sing-a-note-if-your-life-depended-upon-it, shop-til-you-drop moment. It is a guilty pleasure that has believe it or not taught me some very, very valuable lessons.
1) Money cannot buy class;
2) I have been blessed by some AMAZING women in my life - you know who you are - who have been there for me no matter what and didn't need to tell the world or become a martyr for it;
3) My children are great, well-rounded young people who did not suffer from our lack of millions;
4) Gossip always has a bitter after-taste with the possibility of inducing vomit;
5) We all have baggage - some of us just carry it in Prada bags;
6) Despite my best efforts, I can't sing so I will refrain from proving it on national television;
7) At the end of the day, I want my children to see Christ through me; not think I need an exorcism.
Despite these life-lessons, Bravo TV doesn't want me. I don't possess the "Oh no she didn't!" effect they are looking for. Truthfully, I'm not that deep. How many times could you film a woman yelling at two pugs to stop eating rabbit droppings out of the grass while freaking out because the school bus is here and her oldest is running down the road in his socks to catch it ? Not really "Must See TV"... but it suits me just fine.
