The Real Housewives of Mosman

Last night Today Tonight showed a bunch of rich housewives from Mosman and Toorak who did nothing but be pampered all day. As if that wasn't bad enough to watch, tonight they had their less-than-well-off counterparts from Penrith who claimed that the Mosman lot weren't really 'housewives' because they weren't hands on. They even got really cliche and asked 'are they really happy?'

What sort of question is that? Yes they're happy! I'm not sure what the Penrith lot were objecting to; the personal chefs? the gardeners? the massages? Maybe it was the nannies, the expensive lunches or the champagne. Whatever it was, apparently they wouldn't swap places with them for all the $10 lunches in the world. They are content to change dirty bums, wipe snotty noses and work the night shift. They are perfectly happy to forgo the primping and the pampering. And God love them for it. If that makes them happy then I couldn't be happier for them. But I would like to take this opportunity to state my intentions to swap places with the Mosman lot if the occasion should ever arise.

Before I go though, as much as I love the finer things in life, I would never marry someone for their money. A string of near-destitute exes will atest to that. Not saying that the Mosman housewives did that, just saying I wouldn't. Also, if I had a nanny I would still spend heaps of time with my kids. They are really fun to hang out with. But it would be nice to not have to worry about bills....

  1. Hi - I'm starting a blog on this very topic. I found it all very nauseating, not least because I identified a little too closely with the Mosman set....
