Super fan and social media fan page, Housewives Fanatic, has joined “Let’s Talk Bravo” with me this week to share opinions on everything Bravo. The Canadian opened up about all things housewives, social media, and his journey to becoming a Bravoholic…
#1- HOW DID YOU BECOME A BRAVO FAN?
“The first bravo show I ever watched was RHONJ. The only reason I started watching it was because I was watching the apprentice at the time and Teresa was a contestant. I didn’t know Teresa and hadn’t watched any Housewives shows at all. I instantly liked her on apprentice and started to search clips on Youtube.”
“The show was on its third or fourth season at that time and so I decided to watch it from season 1 and try it out. I remember I caught up so quickly and couldn’t stop watching the first few seasons. I think I watched 3 seasons in 3 days, haha. After that I was instantly hooked. Then I started with all the other cities. As you can imagine, I had A LOT to catch up on since the franchise had existed for years and years but I did catch up and now I’m obsessed!”
#2- WHO IS YOUR FAVORITE REAL HOUSEWIFE?
“My favorite housewife is and will always be Teresa. Why? Because she was MY first and she was the only reason I got hooked on Housewives in the first place. She was instantly so funny and I loved her whole big Italian family. Of course the table flip sealed the deal. That really is a moment that belongs in the Housewives “fall of fame”. Love her or hate her, she really is a Housewives icon. Name a housewife who will shove her “boss” at a reunion? I’m waiting…. In the heat of the moment she literally shoved Andy Cohen. She was so angry and heated at Danielle and that was the outcome.”
“That’s reality! That’s what she was feeling. You can’t script that and we really will never see something like that again from any housewife on any city. she has some epic moments in this franchise and there truly is no one like her. We’ve seen her have amazing seasons and really bad, dark, tough seasons (as all housewives do), but she’s still there. Teresa, Vicki, LVP, Kyle and Ramona. That is a very short list of Housewives who have been on their show non stop and full time from season 1. You have to respect that list. I’ll Always be Team Tre even in this world of so many Tre haters, but IDGAF.”
#3- WHY DID YOU CREATE A SOCIAL MEDIA FAN PAGE?
“I decided to create Housewives Fanatic on twitter only 7 months ago. I never had twitter before and decided to join to talk ‘Housewives’ with all the fans and of course to the wives themselves since some of them are so good at interacting with viewers. It’s been a blast. I respect everyone’s opinions (well, I try to) but I’m aware that we can’t all agree. many of us take the shows and our love for our faves very seriously. Bravo fans really are HARDCORE. It’s all in good fun though. I love interacting with all the other fans like me.”
#4- WHAT BRAVO SHOWS DO YOU WATCH?
“The only bravo shows I watch are the real housewives (all of them) and Below Deck. Of course WWHL too! These take up enough of my time and I just can’t watch the others. Now all i’m waiting for is a housewives all star season where we mix all the cities and have all the ladies film together. Could you imagine?”
#5- WHAT DO YOU ENJOY ABOUT REALITY TV?
“I watch reality TV because it’s a great way to escape from every day life. Life gets so hectic, busy and stressful that reality TV allows you to put that on hold and forget it, even if only for a short time. After long days at work, there’s nothing like spending the night checking in with your fave ladies. And just like life itself, reality TV can make you happy, angry, laugh and cry all at the same time. It’s simply something many of us can relate to.”
