Quote of the Day


"But best of all may be that The Real Housewives Of Miami will forever erase the unfair image that television has created of Miami as a corrupt hellhole of narco-traffickers, serial killers and transvestite porpoises. At last we will get recognition for our unacknowledged but indisputable achievements: Our indolent trashiness. Our incandescent superficiality. Our establishment, beyond the shadow of a scientific doubt, of the inverse ratio of breast silicone content and IQ points."

-- Miami Herald TV Critic Glenn Garvin

It was only a matter of time before they brought Real Housewives to my hometown. Setting a season of this vapid abomination in Miami is as obvious as sending the crew of Intervention to an Indian reservation.

Chez, you made me snort in most unladylike fashion.

Having visited Miami several times myself, I know that Mr. Garvin is mistaken when he paints this as an either/or condition.

Transvestite manatees, I could understand, but tranny porpoises?

Is nothing wholly holy anymore?

Please tell me they're resurrecting Wami on Miami as the venue to air this masterpiece!

I wish we'd stop making/watching these shows and misleading the people on them into thinking they're important. Do we really need another set of useless gremlins showing up on talk shows and magazines?

One of them is the celebrity fucker who married Roy Black after the William Kennedy Smith trial in 1991. She was on the jury that acquitted Smith.
