WHY THE REAL HOUSEWIVES FRANCHISE IS MY FAVORITE

I have no shame about this.
  1. Watching other women behave badly justifies all my own not so good behavior. Thank God for Ramona Singer.
  2. Fun drinking game: take sip or shot anyone on any city says "This/it is/was not the time or place." Instant buzz.
  3. If you normally watch on treadmill or elliptical, as I do, shouting at TV burns extra calories.
  4. Weekend marathons give excuse for planting yourself on couch all weekend. Call it anthropology, no guilt.
  5. Andy Cohen. My hero.
  6. Whenever I travel to a city from the show, have mad crazy hope I will glimpse a Housewife in the wild. Someday, will happen!
  7. Feeling better about my own wine habit.
