As months go, I think it’s fair to say that this month has been the most challenging in part due to that pesky mercury retrograde (something that I never paid attention to – in fact I always used to think it was all talk and something everybody just threw about as an explanation for life’s hardships), but as we enter that shadow retrograde period, I’m feeling things have calmed down a little bit. Today’s monthly favourites are shows that have managed to distract me and keep me sane during this arduous month.
THE GOOD WIFE SEASON 7
The show ended in early May, but I held off on watching any episodes until the season was finished so that I could have a marathon weekend. Though the show has ended, I am happy about the spinoff that will focus on Diane and Lucca.
SHAHS OF SUNSET
My favourite Persians are back for another season and it’s been interesting seeing how they’ve managed to move on from all the craziness last season (i.e. Reza breaking off his engagement to Adam at the last minute, GG accusing Mike of trying to have sex with her, Mike’s engagement and subsequent marriage to Jessica, the list goes on), as well as seeing the new troubles the gang encounters. I’m excited to see how the series progresses.
REAL HOUSEWIVES OF DALLAS
I actually only found the latest Housewives installment thanks to Shahs and let me it’s definitely different. This series revolves around the Dallas charity circuit and these ladies are definitely a force to be reckoned with. I haven’t quite found my favourite housewife yet, though Brandi is deffo at the top of my list, but this is definitely worth a watch if you’re a fan of the franchise and want to see something new. However, do beware, because I’ve found myself getting ridiculously annoyed at these women for being soooo annoying.
REAL HOUSEWIVES OF NEW YORK CITY
The NYC housewives are back with a new member to the squad, Jules, and so far the season has been very fun and interesting. Compared to the Dallas housewives and to other housewives of the franchise, there’s something more chic, refined (though some of these ladies are anything but) and sophisticated about the New York ladies that really sets them apart from their housewives peers. As usual I’m loving Bethenny, and now that Heather and Kristen have left the show (THANK GOD!!!!), I’m enjoying every episode and taking each drop of drama as it comes.
RICH KIDS OF BEVERLY HILLS
By this point you can probably tell that I have a soft spot for reality TV and in all honesty it’s one of my favourite genres to watch. In any case, this season focuses on the run up to Morgan and Brendon’s wedding, as well as the introduction of new girl, Bianca, following Roxy’s departure. We’re only a few episodes into the season and (of course!) there’s already been so much DRAMA. It’s been fun to watch, and as I also follow Dorothy and Morgan’s snapchat and instagram’s, it’s been fun finally seeing the stories behind their past uploads.
Another show that’s helped me through this tortuous month is Elementary which finished a few weeks ago. I loved that unlike last year, the season finished on a good note, so at least that’s one less thing I have to stress about. I’m also looking forward to the Orange County housewives that should be returning very soon! If any of these take your fancy, make sure you check them out. I hope this retrograde was more forgiving for you guys! Happy Thursday.
