These Women Represent Real Housewives?

Do I live in some kind of surreal world? This is a television show? I have not even heard of this show. Does anyone out there have a housewife that looks this way? What kind of housewife is she? Does she have a makeup artist come to the house every day? Does she cook?

What the hell kind of reality am I living in? Why does the television make no sense to me? I have been in Sun Valley, Idaho several times in the past six years. The women there wear diamonds that could feed my entire city for months. I never say anything to them lest I get dented in the jaw with a diamond, but I do think the economic disparity in this country is getting more and more bizarre. I also find the televison to be an annoying unrealistic noise box. I have issues. My issues have issues. I don't care. -Alison Whiteman

Oh come on Alison! This is what some "Real Housewives" look like. Believe it or not, I put on a full make up every day whether I'm going out or not. Why? Because it is my routine. And I also have big diamonds. That's because I make my husband buy them for me. That does not preclude us giving money to charities. I'm glad we have money to send monthly gifts to the SPCA and the Red Cross. I also support Planned Parenthood financially. Don't take my diamonds! I'm sorry there are hungry people in Tacoma though.

Alex and I both come from families that were lower middle class, Alex even more so than I. We have had hard times, so I guess I figure we are entitled to have good times too. Alex was an enlisted sailor when we met. I was working as the Marketing Director for a small engineering firm. Neither of us had any money. Alex left the Navy and went to work as an aircraft mechanic and went to college at night. His military background and computer science education was a great combo. Now he makes a really good salary. I stopped working seven years ago because I could afford to, but I had worked for 40 years already.

I know your situation is tough and I'm sorry. Should I send you a diamond?

Yes! Please send me some diamonds! LOL LOL (I am so kidding!) As long as I am warm at night abd I am not hungry, I don't care, Linda. I am happy with the simple things and quite frankly, I need to write a fully investigated non-fiction book that goes viral and buy my own damn diamond.

"and" I meant. Oh well. Blame it on the fingers.

I'm happy with simple things too. Just give me a house full of dogs and life is good. The other is white noise. (But I do like diamonds. Big ones.)

Animals make everything better. I am glad I gave the only diamond ever given to me back to the giver. He is being released from an area prison in 2012 for Rape with a deadly weapon. He was a reporter. He was married to the victim for ten years. I am very sorry for her, and thankful I ran like hell! I am scared of diamonds now. I only want silver and no diamonds at all. I am such a silly person.
