Some women should not be on the show

Wendy is an awful poor excuse of a women. All she does on the show is knock other women down. Black women deal with enough in the world. So for this women to constantly keep knocking other women down she is not a good women to have on a show that women watch. She should be off the show.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: (4):
Kids say: Not yet rated

Yet another round of this guilty-pleasure series offers viewers the classic wealth-centered, narcissistic, endlessly argumentative behavior the franchise is known for. But some of the cast members' constant focus on following proper social etiquette and their strong need to educate their peers on these niceties make it almost comical.

The attitudes these socialites have about each other and their behavior toward each other are so predictable and over the top that you can't help but notice that their actions are completely contrived for the camera. It's a tired premise, but if you're a Housewives fan, you won't be disappointed.
