PICK YOUR FAVE New York housewife

OMG: Wasn’t “The Real Housewives of New York City” SUCH a guilty pleasure??!!!! And did you see the reunion show???

Man, these ladies do not cut each other much slack at all. I loved it when Ramona, who thought nothing of embarrassing her poor tween daughter on camera by wearing revealiReal Housewivesng & tacky outfits and having a smooch-wrest fest with her girlfriend at the pool, walked off the reunion set because it was revealed that someone leaked nude (yet artsy) photos of fellow Wife Alex. Puhleeeze.

The money and high-society goings on of the Hamptons tennis court-owning crowd made those Orange County gals look like little country mice for sure.

Here are the players:

LuAnn, The Countess (tall woman in middle).Yes, she really is a Countess, for whatever that IS worth. Claim to fame: Her husband’s family gave NYC the Statue of Liberty. Show cringe-worthy moment:Her telling fellow housewife Bethenny not to introduce her by her first name to a driver.

Bethenny: The soul of the show. (To right f/ Luann/dark hair). She’s a chef. She’s single with “aging” eggs, as her friend put it, and she has the quietest boyfriend on the face of the Earth. Claim to fame: Her skinny girl margarita recipe (tequila, four limes and splash of Cointreau) & great one-liners, including a comment to “give Cher a call” when she got a tacky lingerie gift for her birthday. Cringe-worthy moment: Her faux ghetto-girl voice at a dinner party.

Jill: Big Mouth No. 1. (Redhead to left of Luann) High society, nosey entrepreneurial type. Claim to fame: Her hot connections to anyone and everyone. Cringe-worthy moment: Throwing a small tantrum for not getting invited to Ramona’s dinner party.

Ramona: Big Mouth No. 2. (Far left blonde) Cat fighter with the above-mentioned Jill. Claim to fame: Ditching the other girls suddenly at Jill’s dinner party. Not inviting Jill to her dinner party. She and Jill fought it out on the tennis court. (Jill won). Cringe-worthy moment: Ripping into a husband for showing up at a girls’ night out.

Alex: The “brainy” housewife (Far right blonde) with dreams of climbing the social ladder from Brooklyn to Manhattan. Claim to fame:The Award for most Co-Dependent Housewife in show history. (She and hubby getting his/hers pedis, ewwwh). Cringe-worthy moment: How can we pick just one? Trying to force her toddler to speak French? Gazing adoringly at herself pictured on a newspaper society page? Bringing her husband to a girls’ night out party. (OK, Ramona wasn’t half off-base for that: WHAT WAS ALEX THINKING??)

Escapist TV: Gotta love it. What’s your favorite guilty pleasure show? Who was your fave NYC woman?
