It's with mixed emotions (and some scotch) that I just created a new category for these DC gals. Are we ready for a new batch of housewives? I'll say yes. Are we ready for this particular batch? Not sure yet. I've personally already flushed those Jersey housewives and am eager to move on but the premier of The Real Housewives of DC left me feeling a bit limp. Of course I'll watch every episode and have hopes that these women will come through. Don't you? I'll mention my partner poured me the largest glass of scotch ever about 20 minutes ago and it's nearly half gone..... which means hello typos! Anyway this is going to be short as I didn't take any notes during the show and have forgotten most of it, however I did a couple drawings to help. So out of the women we were introduced to, I have two that I'm favoring and for completely different reasons.
She's a thin-lipped fried blond wig on a broom stick with the energy of a hummingbird soaked in Redbull. She's also an aggressive fame monger which means my local art store will have a booming business as I buy up pads of paper and pens. Here's the photo I snapped of her with my phone to use as a reference.
Hello gorgeous! Hello my DC muse! She's steeped in all kinds of controversy but what's holding my interest is her cascading broom-bristle blond mane. It seems in terms of fashion that the 80's are back so I say she's ready for a V05 hot oil hair treatment commercial. Or a Jhirmack deep conditioning rinse. All things I used in the 80s........... As far as I'm concerned, she can crash as many political parties as she wants---- as long as that hair looks like it's growing an inch above a horse's ass and she maintains her hugging tornado approach, I'm in. She's the Ramona of this show. She's also the Alexis Bellino aka Jesus Barbie (minus the huge tits) in terms of she and her husband love flaunting their privileged (?) lifestyle. I look forward to drawing you more Michaele.
And the reference photo I used for the drawing also snapped with my phone.
I actually like Lynda from what I saw and feel a bit of a connection. We both are in relationships with younger men of color. Seems like she has a nice family, runs her own business, and has a handsome younger man to keep her company. I'll say it--- you go Lynda with a y. She looks a bit like Kate Jackson from Charlie's Angels mixed with Posh Beckham. Lynda, I approve your message.
The rest of the gals seemed fine. The British one has no sense of dinner party etiquette which I love and the other two seemed pretty normal so I'm cautious about how this season will play out. I do like that these women in general appear to well educated which is a huge departure from Joe and Teresa Guidice. Speaking of Jersey....... Barf. That show ran over it's limit about four episodes ago. That's just my opinion though. In a nutshell, imagine being trapped on a hideously tacky cruise ship with the four screaming spawn of Joe and Teresa. Sounds awful, right? Sounds like you'd want to jump over the side and swim for land. Right? That's how I felt watching last night's show. I'm sorry but I'm done with the NJ gals. Unless the Kims jelly wrestle........ Please Bravo, have the Kims wrestle in jello or VO5 hot oil. I'm sure they would.
Both drawings are done with archival ink on 9" x 12" paper and are for sale. If interested, email me and I can upload them to my etsy shop or you can buy them directly from me. Thanks!
