The Real Housewives of the Lower Mainland
As a TV veteran (ha ha), I do believe that there should be a show based on wives in the Lower Mainland. Why? Well, why not? I heard there was a show based on a local hair salon. I'm not sure how that could be very exciting. Most of us have the same haircut, and the general consensus is that our flat irons are at least 3 or 4 years old. Not a lot of turn over in the hair department.
The Real Housewives of the Lower Mainland. This could be more dramatic, and have MORE CLEANING. Honestly, what more could you ask for?
Fade In: The room is dim. Lamps are turned on but the light isn't getting through the curtains. That's probably because there isn't that much light trying to get in. The clouds have rolled in and rain is pounding the windows.
Its Monday. 9 am. The room is empty, except for one loan woman bending down over a steam mop. She's struggling to get the cover off, and near her feet is a pile that looks suspiciously grey and foamy. Yup, the cat yakked up a Mouse again, and it was at that specific moment the steam mop decided to give up the ghost. Pan around to the woman beating the steam mop with a ladle, and trying to not look at the pile in fear she will vomit. Does she throw up? Does she end up cleaning it? Tune in to find out!
Fade in: Another living room. This room is filled with white light and furniture, but there are kids running amok through the kitchen and there is laundry in small piles all over the place. The woman is picking up laundry piles and putting them back down again, almost robot like. Just as soon as one pile of laundry is put away, another pile magically appears. Overwhelmed, she puts down the socks and picks up here iPhone.Will the kids get fed? What app is so interesting that it takes her away from her laundry pile?
And so on, and so on. Isn't it riveting? Think of the product placements! Think of the episode where the housewives take all of the kids to Chuckee Cheese and promptly lose their babies in the back kitchens because they are too busy fending off Chuckee as he walks around goosing everyone.
I'd watch this show, even if I wasn't on it! Why? Because at least its real and its easy to relate too.
Or I'd at least help them write it. Maybe I should just buy a good camera and film it myself.
