Tuesday (TV) Talk: The Real Housewives

Happy Tuesday! Shew! Yesterday was the longest Monday in the history of Mondays! I felt like I was moving in slow mo all day with a to do list that was a mile long.

It’s the third Tuesday of the month, so I’m linking up with Ashley and Erika for this month’s Tuesday Talk.

Tuesday Talk is all about whatever topic we want to write about. Well, riveting content here…but today’s topic that I’d like to discuss is….The Real Housewives…

I love this show. It’s a guilty pleasure of mine. I find myself loving different seasons for different reasons. Here’s my order of favorites for the different franchises (counting down to my #1 fave):

#5: New Jersey

C/o Parade Magazine

I’ve been watching since the first season when Theresa flipped the table! While some of the seasons can be a bit too dramatic for me, this series holds my attention. I like the dynamic between the characters, and I think I’d want to be friends with Dolores, and would have fun hanging out with Melissa and Margaret!

#4: New York

Ok…New York used to be such a favorite of mine. Well, I realized why it was really a favorite: Bethenny Frankel. Since she wasn’t on this last season, it’s been a dud for me. Actually, somehow I missed the entire last season, so I’ve been playing catch up, and I just don’t think this cast works together. I will say I still love Sonya and think she’s a hoot!


#3: Potomac


I’m enjoying the current Potomac season. My favorite duo is Robyn and Giselle! Just when I thought Candiace was so extra, insert Wendy! She’s next level this season. Monique isn’t in the cast this season, and it was probably time for her to go. Last season was so much with the physical altercation with Candiace. I do look forward to seeing how this season shakes out.

#2: OC


I’ve always been a big fan of the OC housewives. The past couple of seasons have been different without Vicki and Tamra, and I do miss them. They were always so fun to see hang out with Shannon. I think this upcoming season is without Kelly and Brandwyn, so I’m not sure who replaces them?! The OC franchise is the OG of Real Housewives, and they always have a fun crew for a cast.

…and #1: Beverly Hills


Beverly Hills has always been my favorite! Lisa Rinna is a freaking queen! She’s the best, (hunny!) I always think that I’d want Kyle as my friend, and her sister Kathy is on this season which has been everything. Kathy Hilton is the best. I think she’s funny without meaning to be funny, but who knows?! I love Garcelle; I think she has a kind of quiet confidence. I like Crystal this season. She’s kind of in the background a bit, but I feel like she shares more about herself as she feels more comfortable. I’ve always been in intrigued by Erica, and this season with all the issues surrounding herself and her (almost ex) husband have obviously been a hot topic. It’s been interesting to see her navigate her “lifestyle change,” and I feel like she leans on the ladies more than I thought she would. Sutton’s a little too proper and needs to loosen up a bit. Dorit is a bit much as well. I’ve always thought these ladies go on the best trips, and I love seeing their day to day lives as well.

The Beverly Hills series is the one I watch in as close as real time as possible. With some of other cities, I miss a few weeks before playing catch up, but not with the BH ladies!

Other Cities and Thoughts:

Through the years, I’ve watched them all. Real Housewives DC only lasted one season, and I liked it just fine. I was kind of surprised it wasn’t renewed.

I watched a couple of seasons of Miami, and couldn’t get into it. It was eventually cancelled anyway.

I’ve missed entire seasons of ATL and will just sometimes pick up with a current season, but I don’t feel like I’m missing much.

I did watch the Dallas seasons, and thought this past season was the best yet. That being said, I’m not surprised it was cancelled. The girls just seem to do silly things and are even kind of crude at times.

Salt Lake City is still too new for me to know how I feel. I think season one was shorter than most, so maybe they were just testing it out. Season two has been fine, and I’m interested.

I love the reunions at the end of the season when they break down the seasons and dig a bit deeper into everything that’s gone on. There’s usually a screaming match or two, and “receipts” are always shown 🤣

I’m not too ashamed to to admit that I watch these shows because I do a good job balancing out my free time with reading as well 😉What about you? Do you watch any of the Real Housewives? If so, which one is your fave?

Thanks so much for reading today’s post. I hope you have a great day!

  1. I love Housewives but I don’t agree on all of your thoughts! Lol – sorry! I will admit I am sometimes influenced the the Watch What Crappens podcast. So funny! I think NY is my fave and it’s because I love the city! I think Salt Lake and Potomac are horrible. I can’t stand Lisa or Kyle on Bev Hills but I love Kathy!
    I did love Miami bc of the Latina influence and Dallas because it was ridiculous.
    It is a guilty pleasure and so entertaining!


    1. I was to love NY but I’m having trouble getting through this past season (that I didn’t even realize I missed)…it used to be one of my faves! I think that’s what I didn’t like about Dallas…all the ridiculousness BUT I watched anyway, so it was ok. It’s my guilty pleasure too


  2. Viewer/fan too. 🙂 My favorite has always been RHONY, because I simply love all the New York spots they cover, but I liked it best when it included Bethenny, Sonja, Ramona, Jill and Luann.
