As mentioned once, twice or a gazillion times before, I am a bit of a reality junkie. Especially now that I am home for maternity leave and pretty much up all night, I generally tune into the boob tube for my kicks.
In the wide variety of shows that I watch consistently, I realized that I have identified with some of the characters often wishing that we were friends in real life.
So without further adieu, my list:
5. Big Ang from Mob Wives
Big Ang is like that auntie that will always have your back. I’m not sure why I adore her so much, maybe its her over the top look, her insanely deep voice, or her “so new york” attitude, either way everything about her screams FAMILY. It would be a really good look to have Big Ang in my corner!
4. Jacqueline Laurita from the Real Housewives of New Jersey
Throughout the seasons of RHONJ Jacqeline was always the peace keeper, she really never wanted anyone to fight, she saw the good in folks (ahem Danielle) and she had the most realistic “housewife” life of anyone else on the cast. This past season however we saw the fire come out of Mrs. Laurita—she stood up to her bratty teenaged daughter and she stopped taking nonsense from her “friend” and for that reason I would love to be her bestie!
3. Phaedra Parks from The Real Housewives of Atlanta
I know, I know. A lot of people don’t like Phaedra and I can see why. She can be a bit messy at times but that is why I love her! She really does seem like a cool down to earth friend that you could go shopping with, hang out with, playdate with etc. She a bit (ok a lot) over the top a lot of the time, but underneath all that I think she would be a cool gal to chill with.
2. Drita D’Avanzo from Mob Wives
One thing I love about Drita is the fact that she is so RAW! She has amazing style, she is incredibly loyal and she is gym obsessed (like me!). She doesn’t take any mess from anyone and only reacts when pushed to the brink. It would be awesome to have someone like Drita on my team!
1. Chrissy from Love and Hip Hop
Chrissy reminds me a lot of myself (except she has a lot more money than I do lol), she is so down to earth regardless of her engagement to a famous rapper, she is loyal to her friends, her style is incredible and she is so REAL! If I had one person to pick, it would be her hands down!!
Honorable mention: Trina (Braxton Family Values), Kandi (Real Housewives of Atlanta), Aisha Tyler (The Talk) & JWoww (Jersey Shore)
