Bravo: Read what happens

I watched “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” last night on Bravo, and was at first confused then annoyed that the network provided subtitles for conversations between African-Americans … when there was nothing wrong with the audio.

Does anyone else find this slightly offensive? Conversations between southern caucasian women certainly weren’t subtitled, so why does Bravo feel the need to do so between southern African-Americans? Can the nuances of dialect and turn of phrase be any harder to understand than the snotty girl shrieking of the cast of “NYC Prep?”

I wonder if anyone else has noticed…

Does D.C. have housewives? Bravo thinks so.

It wasn’t my intention to become a reality TV blogger when I started “Politics and Quirk.” But I’m already one post into the subject and about to embark upon a second.

I blame Bravo.

Earlier this week, DCist broke the news that the network was pursuing another extension of their “Real Housewives” project, this time focusing on the District.

Before I go any further, I’ll take a silent pause to let any and all District residents get out their screams, sighs and other expressions of terror.

**Silent pause.**

OK, back to “The Real Housewives of D.C.” (more…)
