Bouncing Checks with the Housewives: Thanksgiving Edition
Another week, another chance to waste thousands and thousands of dollars — such is the life of a Real Housewife. Let's see how the gals bounced their checks this week, shall we?
Last week, most of our beloved Beverly Hillbillies headed out east for the star-studded opening of Kelsey Grammer's Broadway show, The Seven Year ItchLa Cage Aux Folles. Orchestra tickets for La Cage generally run around $140, with premium/cabaret set prices set at $251.50. At those prices, Kelsey's messy divorce from Camille will practically pay for itself.
No self-respecting Housewife would walk the red carpet at a Broadway gala without some new glad rags, which is precisely why Kyle and Lisa headed over to designer Christina Makowsky's boutique for a little retail therapy (if retail therapy was anything like regular therapy, then maybe Camille wouldn't be a walking bag of crazy). Lisa picked up the Pearl Cocktail Dress for a cool $1,895, and paired it with the Portrait Collared Crop Jacket (a mere $995!). That's right, Lisa spent $2,890 to look like a cheap, matronly bride at her fifth wedding. Sidenote: what the F is going on with the barefoot-n-busted model on the Christina Makowsky site? Girlfriend looks more Appalachian meth lab than she does haute couture.
Over in Hotlanta, Kandi threw herself a birthday party at her thrifty clothing boutique, TAGS. Go to their online website. Seriously, go — it's hilarious. Roughly 99% of the site content is about Kandi and her upcoming album; and, if you search hard enough, you just might find a link leading to the rather sad collection of clothes and accessories. Our favorite purchase? A pair of homeless-hooker-chic black boots that cost $165 — $165 that could be better spent on, well, just about anything.
Unless, of course, you're Kim, who undoubtedly spent a small fortune to buy that fright wig as a "Sorry I'm a Horrible Human and Friend/Happy Birthday" present for Kandi. Readers who would like their own fire-engine red rat's nest of a wig, and who would also like to be confused for an out-of-work drag queen, can hop over to Wigs.com where the blindingly awful "Scorpio" model goes for $162.
Oh, and how priceless was it when Sheree learned that her love doctor's degree isn't worth the cocktail napkin it's written on? We love us some Sheree schadenfreude.
