I'll admit, I have watched this. I lost what could have been a very important half-hour of my life. There are a list of problems with this TV show:
#1: Most of them aren't even housewives.
#2: The ones who have children drown them with money and material things so they don't have to bother with them.
#3: How are they REAL housewives? They don't cook, clean, or even care for their children.
When I ask my parents why they watch this, they shrug and just laugh at the women on the show.
