After stints in the overly Botoxed hells of Orange County, New York, and Atlanta, the "Real Housewives" circus has decamped for yet another cultural wasteland -- northern New Jersey. 'The Real Housewives of New Jersey" begins Tuesday and the sneak peeks we've seen suggest the ladies from Joisey are just as gloriously catty and utterly graceless as their predecessors.
We don't think so. But we're leaving it up to readers to show us, via the magic of online video, the qualities that would shine if the show comes to Beantown. We're not guaranteeing that the show's producers will hit us up for your cell number after viewing the clips, nor can we be sure that they'll even see them. But you didn't get where you are, triumphantly atop the social pyramid, by avoiding risks, did you?
If you have what it takes, "it" being the supreme self-confidence to show the world that you're supremely self-confident, send us a clip. It can be a simple shot of you making your case directly to the camera, or something showing interaction with friends and relatives. That's all up to you.
Take a look at the entry form and the usual fine print. Get busy: we'd love to run a few of the best on Tuesday, May 12 with our review of the show.
