TV’s best drama and reality series love to highlight the lifestyles of America’s housewives. They are dutiful in the kitchen, may have mastered baking desserts, like Bree, or pouring the appropriate glass of wine, like Renee. Early years may be centered around the children as dedicated mothers like Susan would love nothing more than to do it all over again with the grandchild. Then, there are the housewives like Lynette who simply need a miracle; they juggle the lives of three or more somewhat single-handedly, toddler to teen; a worthwhile weekend outing to see Touchback could be just the restoration she needs. Any part- or full-time housewife is welcome to join the fun and put the housework on hold for a moment during your weekend while Desperate Housewives are on hiatus until April 29th.
While TV’s housewives indulge in salon/spa appointments, expensive beauty treatments and shopping trips to pass time, America’s realest housewives have already gotten creative with budgets and mastered home beauty remedies. It’s the weekend and what better way to unwind than to jump into a plush sweat suit, let the kids dress themselves and have husband or granny to chauffeur you all. Take time to indulge in one of America’s best past times: cinema.
