Real Housewives of Orange County - Saggy Old Balls

Viewers of last week's Real Housewives of Atlanta were treated to a preview of the upcoming Orange County season. Looks like they all be hatin' on Gretchen, the new 30 year-old who's dating** an old rich dude with a terminal illness.

**Would you call it dating? Do you think they actually go on dates? Or have sex? Or do anything but go to expensive stores where he watches her try stuff on and then hands over his Amex Black Card? I can't think of the right word to describe this situation.

I have no doubt that Lauri Waring-Peterson married Steve for the dough, or that Tamra Barney got on the Simon train so he'd pay her gay son's rent. But at least those guys' ages are within a decade of their wives'. It'll be interesting to hear Gretchen explain her affection for a man who probably thinks the music of the Beatles is that "new rock n' roll racket."

Do women like Gretchen hook up with hot dudes their own age on the sly? I just can't see how a lifestyle like this is gratifying. But that's just me.

Well it looks like Tamra's gay son may have to find a new place to live soon, as the family is "not downsizing":

I'm going to hop on the Liz M. train and say that Ryan isn't gay, "because he said he wasn't, so I'll believe him". Besides, I didn't see him protesting against Prop 8 this weekend, so he must be straight.
