The Real Housewives of New York City Should Be...

...used as landfill.* I only mean that a little. Last night's ordeal got very Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf with the Elizabeth Taylor role going to Jill Zarin. She cries, laughs, loves, then goes off on a raging tear. The villains change from episode to episode, though the core personalities remain true:

Bethenny: poor-me commitophobe who can level you with her nasty mouth. Is supposedly in labor right now. Just married strange person who's a little self-helpy.
The Countess: gorgeous, with a nice deep voice but shows her class by telling a young underprivileged girl she's too fat.
Ramona: Needs medication.
Alex: Nerdy girl who had integrity until she discovered her power.
Sonia: Fun and slutty, like Samantha on Sex and the City.
Jennifer: So far, the normal one.
Kelly: Flaky model who, this season, is, like, likeable.
Jill Zarin: Janus.

As much as I find these women mostly toxic, I can't wait for next Thursday. God help me.

*term often used by TG to denote the worthless.
