Mob Wives Premiere: My Review

I watched Mob Wives last night, and it was enjoyable. It wasn't groundbreaking or anything, but it was a good watch.

Mob Wives just seemed like a VH1 version of The Real Housewives of New Jersey one state over. Women fought, talk about the mob was evident, etc. Most of the women had husbands in jail (the other had a jailed father), but the men don't appear much in The Real Housewives of New Jersey anyway, so it wasn't significantly different in that respect.

I feel like the previews for the show made it seem like the women would be learning from the err of their husbands' ways, but it seems like it'll be more about catfighting and stuff.

I will say, the Karen and Renee argument (You leave! No you leave!) was pretty interesting because I feel like it could have been easily solved with a few minutes of discussion...but that doesn't make for good TV, now does it?

Is Mob Wives a must watch show? No. But is it good, mind-numbing entertainment, yes it is.

I also watched Audrina.

Once again, this show was mind numbing. It was fun to see the interaction between Audrina and lookalike sister Casey. I also didn't realize that Audrina had other siblings...and I guess they all now want a piece of reality pie. Will I continue watching this show? Probably not. But it was definitely better than the show that came on after it...Saddle Ranch or something. That was just awful.

I have seen a couple episodes of Mob Wives it was a childish fight but hey it happens all the time in these shows. I think this one is a little more different then a couple other shows but I have never seen House wives of New Jersey so what do I know? I’m starting to get more into the show Mob Wives and since I bought the sling adapter from my employer DISH I can watch Mob Wives LIVE anywhere I am. I hope it get better! http://goo.gl/Qsggz

Brother Husbands on TLC - Well, That Was Interesting!

TLC gave us a new reality special called Brother Husbands, whose title is clearly a play on Sister Wives. The premise is exactly as you'...
