You are probably not familiar with this show, not only because it is American but also because it is aired during the day when most of us have other things to do and see that override watching a bunch of rich women go about their everyday lives. However, if you have some form of recording device on your TV – I would really recommend you give this show a try. If you love Made in Chelsea, TOWIE, Jersey Shore and The Hills, then this is your ideal show rolled into one! I guarantee you’ll love it!

My mum and I have really got into the show over the last month or so, as despite being full of materialistic, superficial women – you can really relate and sympathise with their everyday antics, as well as envy their gorgeous mansions and champagne filled trips! The show itself has been running for about 6 years (as there are 6 series), however the latest series was filmed in 2010 – so it’s not completely up to date, but still relevant nonetheless. With each series brings a new housewife to add to the gang and over the years you’ll see them love, hate and argue like there’s no tomorrow. Series 5 is currently being broadcast at the moment (on ITV at about 3.15pm every day) and so as I said before, if you have a recording device – give it a go, you’ll love it! Although the housewives are a little older than the stars of TOWIE and Made in Chelsea, I think as an audience – we just love to watch other people go about their everyday lives – especially if they are rich, lead a spoilt lifestyle and constantly bitch about one another! (ha ha)
As well as being intriguing, it’s also very comical to watch – as several of the housewives do not get along and plot revenge against one another (Tamra and Gretchen episode). Plus although some of the housewives are in their 40’s, married with kids – for those who love someone they can admire and envy – enter Gretchen Rossi, the gorgeous, skinny blonde who has been accused numerous times for being a goldigger! You’ll make your own mind up once you know the background behind it!
Anyway, I just thought I’d let you all know about the show as many people who I have personally spoken to about the program have never even heard of it before, let alone watched an episode and I feel that since TOWIE, MIC and The Hills aren’t on our screens anymore – you should feast your eyes on a new fixation! I won’t give away the storylines, but I will say that each episode is jam packed with gossip, glamorous parties and million dollar mansions!
