I’m So Egg-cited!

We all know that real­ity TV isn’t… well, real. But it tends to look enough like the world we live in that with a lit­tle sus­pen­sion of dis­be­lief, we go along with it. But when THE REAL HOUSEWIVES OF NEW YORK CITY had Tins­ley call her fer­til­ity doc­tor in or­der to look at pic­tures of her frozen eggs… all while sit­ting in a bou­tique in a wed­ding dress — we were on the floor laugh­ing, and not in a good way. Worse, Tins­ley and her mom kept say­ing that if Scott knew she was try­ing on dresses and talk­ing about ba­bies, he’d run for the hills. You know, as if she wasn’t do­ing this on cam­era for all the world — in­clud­ing Scott — to see. Con­trasted against the very real drama of Luann’s ar­rest, Tins­ley’s an­tics seem as if they’d be a bet­ter fit for Life­time’s fic­tional UNREAL.

Filthy Rich

Ever won­der what GEN­ERAL HOS­PI­TAL’s Quar­ter­maine clan might look like if they were given a spin-off show on HBO? Look no fur­ther than that net­work’s new se­ries, SUC­CES­SION. The bril­liant hy­brid of dark com­edy, big busi­ness and soap fol­lows the Roy clan as they bicker over con­trol of the com­pany af­ter their pa­tri­arch is felled by a health cri­sis. Al­liances are formed, backs are stabbed, and it all takes place against a back­drop of stag­ger­ing wealth punc­tu­ated by quippy dia­logue you’ll be quot­ing for days. We can’t help think­ing that Tracy would fit right in with this crowd, and we mean that as a com­pli­ment!

No, Tins­ley, you don’t get to be shocked by… well, pretty much any­thing the oth­ers do!

“Lucy, we should be in busi­ness with these peo­ple!”
