The Real Housewives Of Materialism

Illustration for article titled The Real Housewives Of Materialism

Sure, Bravo's The Real Housewives's NYC and O.C. franchises seemed like great trash TV a year ago when most couldn't foresee how hard the economy would crater; but now the conspicuous consumption of the "real housewives" seems more than just silly. The Real Housewives of Atlanta, which premieres tonight at 9 p.m. and follows 5 women who are mostly wives of pro athletes and rich men who live in the Atlanta area. What do reviewers think? The LA Times says the materialism is "horrifying," while The Hollywood Reporter finds the women "self-indulgent to the point of boredom." Ouch. [LAT & THR]

Oh dear. As a resident of Atlanta, I apologize to the world. Also, I'd like to say that my guess is these women do NOT live in Atlanta. They probably live in Gwinnett County. Or worse, Alpharetta.
