Whatchu Talkin' Bout Willis?

I remember on our wedding night, I told Simon, 'Please take care of my heart, because you have it now.' And he always has.
-- Alex McCord Van Kempen, "The Real Housewives of NYC".

The Big Apple ReWis are owning Bravo's tri-city franchise. The ATL cast, while fun in its dirtay South way, got just a tad too Maury in the end. Word on the street is, most of them don't even have the bank to fulfill the ReWi pre-req of being obnoxiously wealthy. Then there's the original OC cast, who definitely have the money, but suffered from an emotional deficit this time around. They were overripe versions of their former flawed-but-fun selves in a nasty season that saw Geana's passive agressive enabling coming back to haunt her, Vicki and Tamara's ugly, aging meangirl routine, and the addition of Gretchen the Merry Almost-Widow. After all that ew, the NYC's LOL-laden season is the Baby Bear to my Goldilocks.
