AMERICANS RULE

I'm not a huge Bravo fan. Totally not a fangirl, because some of their stuff is puuurdy craptastic. But, I can't seem to stop watching the Real Housewives series [except ATL] no matter how hard I try. I guess it's because I really can't believe grown women act the way they do and that we care so much that they keep creating shows.

I was both intrigued and wary when I heard Bravo was starting a series across the pond. British women already have an air about them, so part of me couldn't wait to see how they acted with a camera on them 24/7. I also was very interested to see how things were portrayed regarding the USA vs GB ladies.

I very much enjoy Marissa, as she seems very down to earth, has a job and seems very genuine in her interests. Juliet is the most 'American' of the ladies and while I find her say what ever she wants attitude a tad bit annoying, it's fun to see some spunk. Annabelle is beyond gorgeous, and I think just is so set in her ways that she doesn't really care much what people think. I think it's incredible that she was McQueen's muse and can only imagine how hard it must be to still be involved in fashion without her friend. I'm not sure what to make of Noelle yet. She seems to be trying a bit too hard, but I can't imagine dealing with her relationship drama. Caprice seems like just another model, but one that has a British air to her and one that makes mountains out of mole hills. And then there's Caroline. At first I couldn't stand her, with her nose in the air and "I don't know what the 4th of July is about", I mean really? But, I find her mentality of staying out of drama that doesn't pertain to her extremely refreshing and and interested to see how her character develops throughout the season.

I must say, that dramawise I find this show extremely refreshing. So far the backstabbing, rude comments and vulgar language has been kept to a minimum, which I personally like. I find myself often thinking "you can't be serious" watching the other series of RH's, with most of the women acting like children still in high school.

What do you think of' 'Ladies of London'? Who's your favorite and who do you not care for at all? Any predictions for the rest of the season?

HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAPPPY FRIDAY LOVES!

ps.com You know what you pompous Brits? We LOUD Americans not only KICKED YOUR ARSE ONCE, but we had to save it twice. So, keep your high and mighty nose in the hair, but remember, we could conquer you in a heartbeat...ya wankers ;)

Kristen said...

haha - you're so funny! um, I don't really know the reason behind 4th of july - we don't learn american history in my country! all of these types of shows annoy me but i can't stop watching!

Jessica said...

Gosh, I love this show - and even put it on my blog today, too (lol!) Seeing how life is across the pond is just so fun! And totally agree that Marissa seems the nicest:)

Now I am a self proclaimed Bravo-holic, but I haven't gotten into this series yet!

I love Ladies of London.. I get sucked in like it's a sickness!! I'm pretty into Bravo but I can't stand when they go on a "rerun marathon". It drives me insane. The Real Housewives are a major go to for me and Tabatha Takes Over in the mornings. I'll admit it!

I still need to watch this! I caught the intro before the series started but have yet to see an actual episode!

I watched the first episode, but haven't watched a second one. Caroline was the one who amused me the most. She seemed so uninterested in anyone, but at the end admitted she thought they were okay.
I guess British 'society' is just very different than the good o' US of A! Go 'Merica!!!
