Real Housewife Explains How Women's Lib Ruined America


On last night’s season finale of Real Housewives of Orange County, Alexis Bellino—who hasn’t exactly been known for her feminism or deep thoughts throughout her two-season career on reality TV—said that “the problem with America today” has to do with the fact that women are now able to run for president and do everything that a man can do. No, really. She said this.

Alexis then went on to extoll her traditional marriage by saying, “Everybody thinks [my husband] bosses me around. And it’s OK because he is the man.” In case you think that maybe Alexis was just a victim of some evil editing, she actually clarified her points in her blog this week:

I think America is going through a liberal movement, and the older, more traditional marriage values are becoming something of the past. Jim and I are one couple who still favor a more traditional marriage rather than a liberal marriage, and because we do, it makes my marriage an interesting conversation topic. However just because we have a more traditional marriage does not mean I do not make my own decisions. As you can see just in this one episode, I chose to wear the dress I wanted, not the dress that was Jim’s first choice.
