What I do appreciate about the series is that I got to "meet" all six housewives on facebook. It was great getting to know them and chatting with them. Some of them have even become friends with me through this experience. I wish all of them the very best in their lives and I plan to stay in touch with those who care to interact on facebook. I've also made a lot of friends who were fans of the show on the facebook page that was set up for us to chat about the show and ended up being the place where we vented frustration at the lack of new episodes. A lot of new relationships were forged by many thansk to the series and facebook. Some may last a lifetime. So something good did comeout of it; something unintended and surprising; and many lives have been enriched since the first episode aired a year ago.
