Watching these women bicker, bitch and spend copious amounts of money intrigues me. Majority of the time I sit there cropping, journaling and embellishing with my jaw on the floor. I get gobsmacked by the behaviour of some cast members. I quite often shake my head at the things they say. I find myself gasping at the way they 'get all gansta' and "tut-tut" at the backstabbing that goes on. Real or not real, I'm addicted.
I could finish layout after layout watching my trashy reality shows, not thinking, just watching cray-cray women and being thankful for my gorgeous girlfriends... :)
So that's how my week 7 came together, whilst having a Real Housewife catch-up session. I was sticking, cutting, gluing and making it all look pretty while watching Melbourne women attack each other over their cocktails and dinner. I'm surprised I didn't stick my fingers together at some stages... These women can be brutal!
Playing with pretty pinks and teals kept me calm. At some points I wanted to use my Typo washi tape to stick their mouths shut... Well, just one particular 'rude and vulgar' housewife that has an expensive tennis court ;) WOW, can women really be that nasty or am I just naive and living in the land of crafting, rainbows and unicorns lol.
In saying that, I don't condone any of this behaviour, even though I can't help but watch it all play out on my screen. I'm not sure how much of it is 'real' or scripted but one thing I do know, when I'm caught up in these episodes I tend to create some pretty cool layouts lol... This one came together so easily and I think it was because I was too busy concentrating on the Chinese whispers that this group of women were playing.
So while I excitedly wait for more episodes to be aired, I gather my supplies and edit my photos so that my next marathon session can produce me some more 'non-thought-about' layouts. Here's to reality tv getting my creative juices flowing and these housewives making me feel grateful for my happy, drama-free life.
Happy days peeps, happy days!
