* This blog is dedicated to the bich (oh yes, I KNOW I spelled it wrong!), moderators at TWOP. Without Strenga et AL, I'd be happily posting-away along with the best of them. Unfortunately, TWOP is a little too heavy-handed, high-falootin' and downright unfriendly.
*(added 2011)-Amended to mean Strega's Real Housewives forum(s) and of course those Bravo Blogs that eat your comments w/o posting them. I still visit TWOP for the best snark.

Happy Blogaversary! What a difference a Year Makes!

Looks like The Real Housewives of New York are back in business tonight, and with that I am celebrating the official Blog-o-versary of this blog!
OK-I'm, off by about a month or so since last-year, the NY Housewives began in February, and so did this blog, but this is Bravo-reality we're talking about here. Where even time is a little-bit unreal.
And boy did we learn about unreality in Housewife-land since last year!
Maybe not so much when it comes to our New York gals? But starting with last-season's New Jersey Housewives, Bravolebrities, and Real Housewives in particular, were put on notice that we take our reality seriously.

This blog has changed a lot since last season, and I hope for the better. Some of the older posts may look funny on this and my New Jersey Housewives blog, since I've changed the format a little. I'm no-longer typing proper-names in ALL CAPS, which probably makes it easier on the eyes. I try to add pretty photos to the post with proper attribution of course, and I signed-up with NBC-Media Village to be able to use their Bravo press-release info. and photos here. (thanks to my editor, ED Ditor ;).
I've also changed my links, and hope to update some more.

I originally started blogging the Housewives as a protest of TWOP's policy, and the Bravo-blogs policy about comments.
Instead-of re-capping the episodes, I decided to re-quote them in real-time, since there are so many other great bloggers out there that re-cap so well. Hopefully, I'll update my links with even more good ones this season.
I decided early-on not to allow comments on this blog. Instead I like to comment on other blogs that I have links-to. But if anyone needs to get a hold of me the email is in the upper right-hand side.

I know that Twitter was around before last season, but it really took-off for the Housewives franchise in 2010/2011, which sometimes helps to "keep it real", and sometimes just helps the women make more endorsement$$ .I 'm on Twitter as @Housewifehater. I update there when I post new items here.
It looks like everyone of the New York cast survived Season III, and is back for more, including Kwazy-Kelly. Her excuse for what we saw of her last Season? She says that she was making,
                                                    "great television"-(Kelly)
Really? Is that what she calls it? OK Kelly, whatever you say. But here in the real world, I still reserve the right to call it "pathological".As for the rest of the bunch, and the new Housewives, I'll be watching & re-quoting© again, and commenting here and there and on Twitter.
