Ten Crazy Parenting Lessons from the Real Housewives

A tongue-in-cheek look at what the reality vixens taught us.

Real Housewives

The Real Housewives phenomena has proven to be quite a journey through motherhood. The combined shows boast over 10 million fans. From the blonde ladies of Orange County to the feisty brunettes of New Jersey and the upscale mommies of Manhattan, each woman has her moments on national television. That can’t be easy. I think most moms would agree, we certainly make mistakes and most of us would rather not have that footage captured forever.

It’s funny how we get to see the housewives in full “woo hoo” Vicki mode one minute, guzzling down Martinis and spanking each other’s butts, and then the tired mommy mode, fixing breakfast and putting in hair clips. I found it interesting how much parenting we saw on The Real Housewives of New Jersey because of Teresa’s young girls and the fact that Jacqueline’s daughter Ashley was involved in most of the drama.

What have we learned from the Real Housewives? Let’s take a look:

    I couldn’t imagine ever exposing my children the way these “Real” housewives do.

    I feel especially bad for Teresa’s children. She really spoils them, and they are going to have a hard time in the real world.

    ROFL :d I think that the RHONJ has taught alot but not really. These are circumastances that everyday moms don’t get into and if they do they have the commmon sense/decency to not act like wild banshees!!

    Oh dear. These are not lessons I’d like my daughters to learn. There is enough with peer pressure…
