"There's a chicness about us," says one of the women on this urban, East Coast spin-off of The Real Housewives of Orange County, Bravo's docu-reality series about pampered suburbanites. If you say so, hon. These ladies don't seem much more sophisticated than the Californians, even if one is married to a count. Wealth is trotted out like a small, over-groomed dog: gowns costing thousands, homes in the Hamptons. And yet these wives are somehow more enjoyable. What sets New York City apart is toughness, not elegance. The ladies have a quick, edgy liveliness. Any one could swat the Cloverfield monster.
