Okay, I know… but, lord help me, I am hooked on Bravo’s Real Housewives series, and the New York is my favorite. Recently the “ladies” (I use that term loosely) took a vacation down to St. John (notice there is no “s” – dumbasses can’t even get the name of the island right.) to celebrate Crazy Eyes Ramona’s vow renewal and hilarity and drama ensued.
We were actually on-island last November when they were filming, although we never saw them in town. Much more attention was being paid to the Hooters Girls, who were also on-island shooting a calendar. I did manage to run into them one day at the Westin Resort, as we had taken our group over there for a day on the beach with a bartender. Problem was, beach and bar were closed for the calendar shoot. So, tecnically, the fucking Hooters Girls got between me and my rum & diets – not a good thing. It is a good thing that there are 10,000,000 bars on STJ, so my problem was resolved rather quickly.
Anyway, I thought it was so funny watching the completed RHONY shows while knowing where they were. The villa where they stayed is Presidio Del Mar, one of the biggest eyesores on the island (which, also just happens to be for sale right now for the low, low price of $32 million.) Also, they had their food catered by well-known on-island chef Mathayom Vacharat, and word is that everything was a disaster basically because the ladies were overly demanding and as far as fabulous food goes on St. John, there are slim pickins. (Don’t believe for a minute that Bethenny cooked those meals herself.)
Why do I watch this crap? I don’t know, honestly – I don’t. Andy Cohen has some sort of window into my soul where he programs shows that I want – no, need – to watch. (Either that, or I was a 29 year old gay guy from the East Coast in another life – not that there’s anything wrong with that….)
Oh, and if you are into RHONY and can admit it, you’ll love this blog of a snarky gay guy who makes incredible characatures of all the housewives. (He also made the video above.)
