The Real Housewives of N.Y.C.: Love ‘Em or Hate ‘Em?

Some of us love to hate ’em, some of us hate to love ’em, but all of us seem to be talking about The Real Housewives of New York City!

Now that we’re over the fact that most of them are not actual “housewives”–Jill Zarin runs a successful fabric company, Ramona Singer is a fashion buyer, Alex McCord works for Victoria’s Secret Beauty (and proudly posed for some nude photos that recently leaked!), and Bethenny Frankel is a chef who isn’t even married–we’ve all been gawking at the sheer strangeness of the way these ladies live their lives. Take the dinner party scene at Zarin’s condo on last night’s episode:

1. Have you or anyone you know ever stressed out as much as Jill over a seating arrangement–at a dinner for just six ? 2. What in the world was Ramona thinking just getting up and leaving so abruptly? (BTW: Does Ramona remind anyone else–just a little bit–of Dina Lohan?) 3. And really, are Alex and Simon so attached at the hip that they can’t do anything separately?



And, then, just when we got to thinking that Countess LuAnn de Lesepps was actually kinda cool, she pulled that whole “please introduce me as Mrs. de Lesepps” thing with Bethenny and her driver.

We can’t stand it! (And we can’t get enough.)

So let’s hear it: Who’s your favorite/least favorite Housewife? What's your favorite moment so far? And what do you hope happens to each woman on next week’s finale episode? –Mark Dagostino
