|Only Betty White is still with us,|
These were the FUNNY non-real housewives. Come on, you watched, you know you did.
Those four gals, living their Act 3 in a nice house in Florida, had something to teach us.
--Make a good first impression. They all wore nice clothes, even around the house.
--Show off your pleasant side.Things may not be going your way--but keep it upbeat. You might even convince yourself.
--Bite your tongue. Don't go off on people. My recommendation is passive-aggressive (kidding).
--Skip the gossip.Stick with TV shows, music, movies--not those around you.
--Tell the toxic types to take a hike. Remember Blanche's dates? They did not last long if they did not meet her standards.
--Surround yourself with positive people. As I get older, I tend to dump the slugs--not that I am Sally Sunshine myself.
--Stop complaining. Even Jay-Z has 99 problems.
--Shut up and listen. The Girls did not talk over each other--cough, The View...
--Don't overshare. I saw a new sitcom recently that WAY overshared. Took it off my list. It made Amy Schumer look like a mute.
--Take risks. Look at the Girls--three or maybe all of them gave up their homes to live with other women...big jump. It is still a decent prototype for aging in place.
The only thing I would add is a nice man to make the drinks and a dog.
