Hey guys. A few blogs ago I wrote this in response to Bravo snatching RHONY away from us at the very last moment and replacing them with some random women we weren’t expecting and who didn’t even have a page on the Bravo website:
“I want RHONY back. I think I’m going to boycott these Miami bitches out of spite.”
It turned out that I wasn’t the only one who wasn’t planning on watching the show. So I jumped on the boycott band wagon in an effort to get some free stuff… erm, wait, what are we asking for? Acknowledgment? Ok, but I also want a free case of Skinny Girl Margarita’s and a couple bottles of Ramona’s Turtle Time juice – or else Bravo!! OR…ELSE!!!
While we’re on the subject of complaining and demanding things, I have one complaint that the others don’t: Bravo Canada does not air Housewives! Why do you hate Canadians Bravo? Why?? Yes, I know, you do give us Housewives on Slice… eventually. But that is way after the seasons are over in the U.S. and no one is talking about them online anymore. And Slice releases all the franchises all at once and plays them back to back one right after the other creating one big confusing mess. At 8pm they’re in DC, at 9pm they’re in Atlanta, in New Jersey at 10pm… No one knows what the hell is going on! Not to mention that Slice is like the red headed step child of Canadian programing. You might as well just give me the shows and let me release them on my Youtube channel. It would be better than Slice.
Ohhhh Bravo, I show you so much love and you just throw me aside. You are the Greg to my Nene, the Adrienne to my Taylor, the Bethenny to my Jill. Sigh…
If you guys want to join in on the boycott that’s cool, if not, I won’t hold it against you. You can still discuss the show in the comments.
Here is what some of the other bloggers are saying:
From Lynn’s Blog:
I Hate Jill Zarin Bloggers Unite!
Yes, its true, I won’t be blogging about The Real Housewives of Miami. I’m not “banning” any discussion of the show, but I want everyone to understand why we’re all doing this and I’m hoping for your support.
By “we” I’m talking about Real Old Housewife, Real City Housewife, TVTime101 and Terry Aley. We’re all a bit upset with Bravo right now and we are hoping that this will change the relationship between us and them and in turn improve our blogs and improve the content that you all read on our blogs.

From Terry Aley:
This is the last I’ll be talking about the Real Housewives of Miami – for now. Let me explain if you haven’t already heard the buzz. A group of the biggest and most influential Real Housewives and Bravo TV bloggers have united to simply stop talking about this brand new series. I gave the “sneaky preview” show a negative review yesterday. And I’ll continue to remind my 6,300+ Twitter followers just how much of a snoozefest this show is. Continue reading…
From TV Time 101:
Ok, reasons for me boycotting the new ‘unamed’ franchise is this. Bravo has done nothing to support us bloggers or give us any acknowledgement to the fact that we egg on viewership and provide a lot of advertising for their programming.
Also from TV Time 101:
Believe it or not, there are other worthy networks to peruse on the Tuesday 10:00 pm time slot!! Let me give you a few options if your channel is stuck on the Bravo channel. We have a remote for a reason people!! It is not a back scratcher or something to throw at the dog or kids with. Or more importantly to some.. to hide your batteries from your kids that is stored for OTHER uses.. yes.. I went there.. Continue reading…
From Real Old Housewife:
As you may have already read on some other blogs and on Twitter, a few of us bloggers are taking a pass on Real Housewives of Miami. We won’t be watching or writing recaps of Bravo’s newest Real Housewives franchise. When I was asked to join the others in this boycott, I said sure because I had already decided not to watch or recap RHOM. Though I support the requests made by my fellow bloggers, my reasons for shunning RHOM are a bit different.
One of my reasons is that after Bravo got me excited about the new season of RHONY starting, at the last minute they suddenly announced they were postponing the NYC premiere and would be showing Real Housewives of Miami instead. To add insult to injury, all they offered as an explanation was some lame blather about NYC needing more editing. Continue reading…
On another subject, here is a really good interview with Kyle. Looks like she’s beginning to see the light with Taylor.
I love this woman. The Really Real Housewife from Bensonhurst
And then there is this……
