Don’t these broads have anything better to do?  If the stereotype of an obnoxious, drunken, uneducated woman from Southie hasn’t been beaten into the ground enough, it has officially been killed with yet another installment of the Real Housewives of South Boston.  

Really?  Do we need another one? But we guess they have to milk their fifteen minutes for all its worth.  This edition features the Super Bowl and without even watching it we can tell you what it’s about.  It would go something like this: Jackie and the crew decked out in head to toe Patriots garb, swearing, drinking and most likely making rude comments about Eli Manning and sexually charged suggestions about Tom Brady.

After watching it:
The original Real Houswives video, we chuckled a bit.  The second one, we didn’t watch.  The Super Bowl edition – there are some glaring errors.  First – nobody gets a furlough to watch the Super Bowl.  Not even Tom Brady.  Second, why are the Bruin’s colors on the banner behind them?  Gheesh!  Third, you’ve have three times to correct the worst error of all – there is no Route 37 in Southie. 

Being the gambling gals that we are at Caught in Southie, we bet that a St. Patrick’s Day edition is in the works.  We can almost smell the green solo cups and old fashioned fist fights. 

And while we are on the subject, here is a message to the casting directors looking for above stated stereotype to exploit for a reality show about Southie – “Move on!  We are tired of it!  And we have a feeling the rest of the world is too!” 

Thank you!

Go Pats!

    Thank you CIS for getting it.  These spoofs are not funny – they are just plain sad.  My stomach turns whenever someone mentions the reality show, “Southies.”  There is no way real Southie women will ever be portrayed in a good light by this show.  They want raunchy, obnoxious, die-hard sports fans and I personally hope they don’t get them.

    Back when the original video first came out your site found that although inaccurate, the video was pretty funny. You even made suggestions on how they could make improvements for future videos. We know you were just having fun with it but a lot of us in Southie were cringing at the thought. 

    Maybe you can make up for your initial discretions by urging your readers to help support a campaign that is currently being waged to contact city officials and ask them to stop the TLC channel’s plans to film a new series in Southie similar to the reality show ‘The Jersey Shore’ and produced by the very same people.

    Please email your electeds and give them your support as they try and stop this nonsense. Thanks all!
