Real Housewives of New York

The other night I sat in front of my TV and watched three hours of the Real Housewives of New York. Yes, three hours. And no, the show isn't that good. I just couldn't bring myself to change the damn channel. I admit I'm as much a sucker for reality shows as the next person—but what kept me watching was more that I couldn't believe real rich people talk about money this much.
