We are definitely on the same page. I watch for vicarious living reasons, ya know? I want to see chicks with long money, long weaves, and long-standing relationships really doing their lives up. I grew up in a hood where I could see chicks throw hands all day. Don't need it on my TV.
I'll admit to checking out the RHOA reunions every now and again. The year Porsha and Phaedra tried to portray Kandi as some rapist, I knew I'd made the right decision to stop watching. Those types of accusations are too damn much. They could have had personal, financial, and even criminal consequences for Kandi and her family.
I always knew Phaedra was sneaky and that Porsha ain't always the most thought-out chick, but I could never fully reinvest in this show after that. These women be trying to play with each others relationships and money too much for me. That's where it stops being fun and becomes serious.
Ugh, I stopped with RHONJ the year Teresa's family showed up. I don't like seeing real family members get down with each other, getting all grimey. That's the same reason I stopped watching Braxton Family Values. Yeah, I know Tamar's a bit much, but by the time Towanda and Traci started circling the wagons to get her together, my heart couldn't take it. I kept yelling at my TV, "You know your baby sister's a mess. Don't treat her like she some bitch out in the street!"
I'm down to RHOP and RHOBH (hope Garcelle don't let none of those chicks get in her head!) On Sunday I erased RHONY from my DVR. The New York chicks used to be my absolute favorites, but their drunken shenanigans this season have just become too desperate and sad. I may peek in every once in awhile because I have a soft spot for these crazy chicks. I doubt they'll pull me back in permanently again.
