Recap: 'The Real Housewives of Orange County' - 'Southern Hospitality'
So, "The Real Housewives of Orange County" may have been the first in the housewives franchise, but increasingly it's starting to look like a tired, middle-aged trophy wife who's trying too hard. Yet again we get another week of petty spats that go nowhere, bimbo logic and a few dramatic moments that, bluntly, defy logic. Maybe the housewives are just getting tired. Maybe the scripting is falling flat. Or maybe (shocker!) the ladies are just learning to deal with their problems in their own weird, dysfunctional way.
