Last night's Real Housewives of New York City really emphasized the differences between the New York "housewives" and the O.C. "housewives". For the most part, the O.C. Housewives were buddies: they got Botox together, got drunk together, and yelled at their kids together. The Real Housewives of New York, however, are much more focused on social status/hierarchy, and absolutely delight in snubbing each other. In the clip above, Ramona, who is desperately trying to befriend the more patrician Countess LuAnn deLesseps, goes to children's day at the Hampton Classic horse show, where LuAnn's daughter Victoria is "showing." In some later commentary, LuAnn gives Ramona the most backhanded compliment I've ever heard. Clip above.
