30 Rock Parodies Real Housewives Series

As you probably know, NBC and Bravo are part of the same company. As such, it made it even funnier that NBC parodied part of its own organization on 30 Rock this week. This week's show portrayed a fake reality show called Queen of Jordan, which featured Angie, Tracy Jordan's onscreen wife. The show was a parody of the Real Housewives shows, including scenes of gossip, wine throwing and other over the top behavior.

Most notable about this parody for me was the reference to The Real Housewives of New Jersey. Liz Lemon says that the TGS cast and crew are her family, and her family is thick as thieves. (Remember when Caroline Manzo said that?) She then flipped a table in the style of Teresa Giudice.

It wasn't my favorite episode of 30 Rock, but it was funny to see the show tie in elements from the Real Housewives franchises.
