Guess what, everyone? Philly is a dirty city! Really dirty! According to Travel and Leisure, the second dirtiest in the country. And without giving any specifics as to what it’s done to merit this title, the article goes on to say that Philadelphians “may not be helping with those first impressions,” what with their poor style and environmental ignorance.
We know it’s toxic, falling apart and filthy, but we still love Philadelphia for all of its quirky charm (cheesesteaks), its rich cultural and historical heritage (cheesesteaks) and its cheesesteaks. Sike! When’s the last time you got a cheesesteak in Philly? Anyway, what we’re trying to say is, yes, Philadelphia, we still love you. You’re not an overcrowded industrial gutter or a smoggy wasteland. You’re perfect!
From Botox parties to charity galas to fake bubbies, we love watching rich 40-somethings act crazy. Thus, Bravo has truly captivated us with its Real Housewives series. We’ve seen housewives from wealthy communities across the country, but what about our beloved Philly? The Real Housewives of the Main Line perhaps?
Well, Philadelphia, our day has come… kind of.
Earlier this week Oceanfront Media Productions issued a press release announcing the casting of its new series: The Women of Rittenhouse Square. Likening Walnut Street to Fifth Avenue, the new show will immerse you in a “fantastic wonderland of opulence” sure to “change the way Philadelphia is perceived.” Sounds accurate. Okay, fine. It’s not exactly Bravo’s Housewives brilliance, but we’ll take what we can get. Read the full press release after the jump.
