I HAVE A CONFESSION TO MAKE. I'M NOT ASHAMED TO SAY HOW MUCH I LIKE REALITY TV IF IT'S REAL HOUSEWIVES OR ANYTHING TO DO WITH THE BACHELOR FRANCHISE.
What does embarrass me is my mortifying obsession with a New Jersey housewife named Danielle Staub, who was "removed" from the show a few years ago because there were some "kind of" violent physical fights.

IT TOOK SEVEN YEARS, BUT DANIELLE IS COMING BACK THIS SEASON!!!!
Even though I think I have an east coast "essence," I have lived in Los Angeles my whole life (mostly). I grew up with surfer dudes and surf bunnies, always feeling out of place. I really have no experience with New Jersey people. I am generalizing now, but if you watch this show, they come off as loud, crude, mannerless people who love their children. I truly had never seen creatures like this, and I was intrigued.
I say this with as much respect as I can possibly have---Danielle presented herself as one of the crudest, classless people I'd ever seen. I adored her immediately, so I mean it as an odd compliment. There were many scenes that showed how terrific a mother she was. But, I simply became transfixed by the character on the screen.
I'm so happy she's back.
This post probably makes no sense. CALL MY THERAPIST.
