First the Kardashians, now the Housewives?! Apparently, President Obama isn’t a fan of reality TV. While addressing the National Urban League in New Orleans this week, the POTUS took a little jab at our favorite Bravo franchise. What did he say? All the details after the jump.
Someone may want to save the Housewives-bashing for after the election.
In a recent address at the National Urban League Convention, President Obama talked about children being prepared to compete in a global society, telling the crowd:
“We will give you opportunity, but you’ve got to earn your success, competing against young people in Beijing and Bangalore. You know, they’re not hanging out… They’re not playing video games. They’re not watching Real Housewives. I’m just saying, it’s a two-way street. You’ve got to earn success.”
Well, Mr. President, as avid watchers of ALL of the Real Housewives shows (yes, even DC and Miami), we can assure you that there are some valuable lessons to be learned. And some of those ladies – not all – but some of them have earned their success, too. Ever heard of a gal by the name of Bethenny Frankel?
We get the point though: Too much TV is bad for kids (and adults).
He may not be tuning in, but somewhere in the White House, we know the First Lady is watching at least a little reality TV.
Michelle Obama has appeared on The Biggest Loser, and has been known to catch a few episodes of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills every now and then (while still managing to be quite successful herself, we might add).
