Real Housewives of Vancouver unveiled, Canada becomes suddenly less appealing as a country


 

Like a horrific vision of everything B.C. shouldn’t be, the cast for the Real Housewives of Vancouver was revealed Tuesday, sparking interest online and depressing those few souls still foolish enough to believe in the decency of the human race. Seriously, this looks terrible—like sad about the world and where it’s going terrible, not just this will be awful TV terrible. And I say that as a guy who watched every episode of the first two seasons of the Jersey Shore. Honestly, I don’t even know why I’m bringing it to your attention, readers. But there it is. If you’re interested in the lives of “free spirited fashionistas” or “luxury toy aficionados” I wish you the best. For my part, I’ll be curled up in a corner at the Macleans.ca headquarters, softly weeping to myself about what we’ve let ourselves become.

Real Housewives of Vancouver unveiled, Canada becomes suddenly less appealing as a country

  1. do not feel bad. What do you expect from a nation that is just another sub-division of Anglo-american interests and Hollywood? There are few at the moment in politics and the media who could mount such an opposition or at least protect “a national identity” as when P.E.T defended a “Canada” which was not under the influence of the Council on Foreign Relations; and funny how an independent Quebec had them concerned and their attention. Still, R. Levesque would not pull the trunk of the elephant next door at the time. But maybe he would have foreseen the Asian Tiger lurking in the background. See you at the Oscars next year!

    • WHAT?!

      • precisely, what?! If Quebec sovereighty is ever back on the table, we will see “what” a “Canadian” identity means? A country, a culture, a multi-culture. I believe Mr. Warnica is pursuing this point: ”
        softly weeping to myself about what we’ve let ourselves become”. If one does remove American TV and Hollywood, “what” are we left with?

  2. I am having my own internal controversy – do I poste to facebook in order to hold up as the terrifying direction canada is going, or will that simply bump its viewership. Dilema.

  3. Next up:  Real Housewives of Toronto and Femmes de Montreal.

    As if society weren’t shattered enough.  Ah, well, what’s one more city, right?

  4. They should mix it up a bit, how about Real Housewives of Moose Jaw, Real Housewives of North Bay or Real Housewives of Deer Lake?
    I’m sure there has got to be some stage hungry,botox injected aging cougars in those towns, give the people what they want I always say.
