I absolutely LOVE watching The Real Housewives of New York! It is one of my guilty pleasures.
I am sitting here watching tonight's episode and there is a woman on the show named Countess de Lesseps. For tonight's show, she visited a Boys and Girls Club to talk with a group of girls about esteem or some junk.
Anyway, she was asking the girls if they knew what they wanted to be when they grew up. There was this girl that said she wanted to be a model. The Countess asked if she was tall and said that she had a pretty face then commenced to tell her that it's not that big of a deal to lose some weight!
Can you believe that? Um, HELLO! There are plus-sized models in the world. The least she could have said was something along the lines of, "make sure you're living healthy and your body is toned" - that would have taken the sting out of calling the girl FAT!
This show really trips me out. I have watched Housewives of Orange County, Atlanta and now BRAVO is going to air a series on housewives of New Jersey!
