The "Real Housewives of New York City" are living in la la land.
The second season of their hit reality show premieres tonight on Bravo, and if the conversations we had with the stars of the show last week are any indication, the ladies are going to have a hard time navigating the country's new economic realities.
"What was hard for me was giving up my live-in maid five days a week," housewife Ramona Singer moaned.
"I'm miss buying my tiaras," Countess Luann De Lesseps admitted.
But at least housewife Alex McCord is ready to pitch in and get the country back on its feet. Kind of.
"It's important to go out to dinner," she offered.
We're going to have to keep watching "Real Housewives" on Tuesday nights, just to see how long the ladies last.
