Be Cool!: An Exercise in Positivity

Recommended Posts

We all have our favorite/least favorite HWs, but can you name something you like about each of them?

LuAnn: She picks herself up and dusts herself off better than anyone I've ever seen.

Dorinda: She seems like she would be the first to help a friend in need (especially if they needed to get rid of a body).

Tinsley: I think she is one of those people who is inherently kind.

Carole: She seems like she would be a good person to just shoot the shit with and has the ability to converse in a variety of topics.

Bethenny: She's got a quick wit.

Sonja: She can laugh at herself.

Ramona: She is introspective and aware of her personal faults.

Luann: She can make a damn good joke at her own expense.

Dorinda: She is always willing to use her connections to help someone else.

Sonja: She isn't shy about showing her true personality. Warts and all, she is who she is.

Carole: I like her fashion risks. They might not always land, but I give her props for trying.

Tinsley: She genuinely wants to get along with everyone.

Ramona: She is a person that can (and has) put personal differences aside when someone needs comfort.

Bethenny: Her charity work will always have my respect, regardless of whatever else she does or says.


Can we do former Housewives, too?

Jill: She loves her family and was absolutely devoted to Bobby.

Alex: She and Simon seem to be great parents and are ridiculously perfect for each other.

Kelly: She is a good mom and her book about the Hamptons was pretty interesting.

Cindy: Her twins were cute.

Aviva: Her education is no joke. A Bachelors from Vassar, Master's in French from NYU, and a JD. Respect.

Heather: She is determined to accomplish anything she sets her mind to.

Jules: She didn't back down when confronted with Mean Girl behavior.

Kristen: She held her temper pretty well when Ramona was throwing things at her.

What a fantastic thread! Thank you, @WhoaWhoKnew.

Ramona: Her malapropisms are the best. “It’s raining cats and buckets.” “Burrow the hodgit.”

Tinsley: She never attacks first. Wonderful gift giver.

Dorinda: I love 99% of her closet. Color. Pucci.  “Not well, bitch!” gives me life.

Sonja: She reuses, which is good for the planet. “Earth first. Make Mars our bitch.”

Carole: Loyal. Calm. Intelligent. I understand her. Got to have sex with Adam, who I think is very sexy. And I love salad.  And veggies.

Bethenny:  I like her personal style and that she gives to those less fortunate than she.

Sonja: She can laugh at herself. She just seems fun.

Ramona: she seems to have moved on from her divorce better than many people do. Shows inner strength and resolve.
