Teresa’s Take on New York Housewives’ Fashions — and All That Nudity
Teresa Giudice knows how to keep it classy — just don’t tell her to pay attention, puh-lease. The Real Housewives of New Jersey star is flipping the tables on the ladies of The Real Housewives of New York by sounding off on season 3 of their show. In this post, she takes on the fashions — and nudity — that was prevalent during Thursday’s episode:
The Real Housewives of New York City was all about fashion this week: Fashion shows, fabulous clothes, designer parties and even a Lindsay Lohan sighting. It had everything we love to see: Beautiful women wearing beautiful outfits in their beautiful apartments — and the equally entertaining opposite: nasty insults, freaky , and nudity!
We got to see Kelly give Jill a tour of her gorgeous apartment. Her bedroom was beautiful and her purse collection, which she displays like art, was amazing. A giant plastic horse in her living room was different, but it totally fits Kelly’s personality.
When we met Kelly last season, her talk about “Kelly world” and “Kelly time” put a lot of off. She seemed really smiley and sort of out of it. But this year, that’s exactly why I like her. Her “weirdness,” as her daughter Teddy calls it, is kind of refreshing. At the Jill Stuart fashion show, Bethenny tried to insult Kelly by saying: “Kelly thinks life is about cartwheels and roses and lollipops and that you should always just only say nice things about .” I think that’s probably why the other women didn’t like her — because only saying nice things about is clearly not what they do.
As I blogged about last week, the New York women are the queens of being nice to your face but talking trash behind your back. It looks like they might try to fix that next week though, and I can’t wait. In the first episode, LuAnn called Bethenny out for talking behind her back. This week, we finally had the first confrontation between Bethenny, LuAnn and Jill, although Jill walked away before it went anywhere. In next week’s preview, Bethenny finally delivers her thoughts right to LuAnn’s face, calling her all kinds of nasty names. LuAnn’s response is classic: “What is the matter with you?”
Luann hosted a party for Ungaro that Lindsay and Dina Lohan attended. The most shocking attendee though was Alex’s new “day gay,” a crazy-looking guy in a corset, leather mask and red shoes. Everyone else looked great. At the Jill Stuart fashion show, I thought Bethenny’s dress was gorgeous, but LuAnn and Jill were underdressed. Kelly’s dress was hot. Luann’s jeans were not.
I love the New York Housewives’ clothes, jewelry, shoes — all of it. I think they all have great taste. So I’m pretty shocked they seem to like to be naked more than clothed. Bethenny just did her naked PETA ad. Kelly shot for Playboy. LuAnn said she’d love to do Playboy if they called her. And Alex had what Jill called those “nude weird photos on the Internet” after the first season.
So what do I think of them all baring it all? I think, like Jill said, I have “mixed feelings” about it. I don’t have a problem with nudity if it’s done tastefully, but all nudity is not the same. I think giant posters of nude women in public places where kids can see them is not cool and has nothing to do with animal cruelty, so I’m not a fan of Bethenny’s PETA ad (the “before” or the “after” shot). I think Playboy is fine if you don’t show everything, but I personally wouldn’t do it now since I have kids. And Alex’s Internet shots? Well, those were really weird. Like sex party weird.
Even though all the New York women are wild, I think we’re going to find out that Alex is the wildest. She’s very nice and sweet and a great mom, but she has a serious bad girl streak. After the first season, we had the weird naked photos that she supposedly released herself. During the second season, she told us she met her husband Simon on a Web site for one-night stands. I’m kind of scared to see what she’s bringing to season 3. But I’ll be watching!
Ciao, Teresa Giudice
