They are more interested in climbing the social ladder than being real.

I have tried putting it in dvd players and computers to watch the episodes and it does the same thing on all of them.

Real classy, like she is so above everyone, laughing at and making horrible rude comments about her friends.

NYC.......somehow, some reason, this show is addicting. More so than the rest. Maybe it's the New York accent or that they are rich and suppose to represent the elite of NY society yet they argue and moan over the most meaning crap. Or maybe it personality is so different and yet so defined. Romona, the good looking chick with the eyes popping at you when she's mad. The Countless, addss flair to the city and most think she's weird for doing so. Jill Zaren, typical jewish gal, rich, succresful, good looking and a temper that could whip up on the current Heavy Weight Boxer, but she's cool. Bethany the 'wannebe" but she tries. The only ones I really dont care for that much is the couple Alex and Simon. They are more interested in climbing the social ladder than being real. Like thats some big deal. I don't really care for the 6ft model they brought in, what does she add to show? Not much at all. The new chick on season 3 Sonja seems pretty cool, wild older hot chick who likes to party...my kind of gal!
Anyhow, great series.....the drama, the women, the City, you have it all.

The Real Housewives of NYC is one of those shows I watch as a guilty pleasure. It's interesting to see how the other half lives (and in some cases, how they act towards one another). The OC Housewives will always be my favorite, but these girls were rather interesting to watch.

First there is Countess LuAnn - She is very classy but I felt that she thought she owned the city. She could be very snobby at times (then again, they're all a bit snobby at times), like when she told Bethenny not to introduce her to limo drivers as "LuAnn".

Jill - Ah Jill. She was my favorite housewife. I felt that she was/is the most grounded of the women and one of the most honest. You can really see how much she loves her daughter. Though she could be the gossip queen, she was still great to watch!

Ramona - Ugh. She annoyed me very much. I hated her attitude in general. She overreacted at every single little issue and was very self-centered. It was kind of fun to watch her in the reunion as everyone kind of put her in her place.

Bethenny - How can you not love her? She is blunt and if something bothered her, she let the others know about it. I loved that about her. She was also the funniest with her one-liners. It's actually pretty cool how she blogs for the show "Top Chef" (since she herself is a chef) as well as this show.

Alex - I don't know why Alex was on the show; yes she is very wealthy, but at the same time she is not in the same "social circle" (two words mentioned several times in the show) as the other women.

I love this series and purchased the entire season to watch on my Roku. I would have given this five stars if not for the description of Episode 7. It was completely off from what the episode was about, it wasn't even close and described a totally unfamiliar one, which makes me wonder if I missed an episode. When I buy an entire season of something, I don't want to have to think about it or search the Internet for an episode guide to check that Amazon gave me all that I paid for. I just want to sit back and watch. Maybe I'm being too picky but I guess I'm a true fan of the show and just want to know I haven't missed any of it.

This is my favorite group of Housewives next to Atlanta Housewives.I love being a fly on the wall and peeking inside of their world. Jill and Bethanny are my favorite Housewives and love their crazy antics each season!

I love both Orange County and I LOVE NEW YORK. I would love for it to be released on DVD. I don't know how one reviewer can call them "trailer trash". These ladies have more class & knowledge living in the big city (more expensive too) as opposed to living in an Orange County gated bubble. Some of the women (VICKI) are unattractive inside & out, others (Tamra) act like a bubbleheaded, boobjobed, nosejobed bleached blonde tacky b**ch! The last epsiode I have seen of Orange county was Tamra (whose jealous of Gretchen because she's not half as hot or young)plies Gretchen with all different mixes of alcohol.Yes, Gretchen is a big girl but it would have been more adult and classy to cut her off. I think this is THE WORST BEHAVIOUR of any season or episode out of all the seasons. That my dear is true trailer trash. I would rather hang with the New York wives anyday over the Insecure Housewives of Orange County.

I remember hearing alot of buzz when the real life "Desperate" Housewives were coming to television. It was supposed to be hot, sexy, scandalas, oh and did I forget absolutely boring! The origins of the series was quite hokey. I flipped through caught 10 minutes of orange county and thought it was like watching yellow paint dry.

Well, it turns out to their surprise(and mine) the series turned out to be one of the best on tv today. My family and I found Atlanta to be the best of the series although Jersey isn't far off. I found those two series to be riveting and really thought provoking. I wasn't too keen on New York City until I kept hearing Bethenney's name all over cnn one day;I assumed what was the point I'm sure it's not that good(Boy was I wrong!).

After catching up on current seasons of mad men, nat geo,pawns stars, I got bored and watched the first 4 episodes of season 3,and I was shocked,dismayed, angry, and wanted to find out what happens next!I was hooked! Think of the jets v. ssharks with grown successful adults. Some women didn't even want to film or be in the same studio with each other, then you a television show's good.

The season 3 synopsis starts with Jill and Luann (people around my parents age!) act mean and spitful making Ramona cry. She kept reinterating that her abusive father died, after they kept taunting her. She literally cussed them out,so theyd stop at her birthday party of all places. The season just kept getting better with the gang up on Bethenney and Alex having to fend for herself while being scoffed at by wealthier and powerful women.It turns out Bethenney had a cinderella story towards the end, trumping them all! And Alex isn't doing too bad either.
