I like Lisa Rinna a lot, and I used to watch her on Soap Net, because she is funny, and brutally honest, even when she is talking about herself. Harry had the better career initially, but then turned into a house husband and found himself without a career. That surprised me somewhat, because I don't think he is a bad actor by any stretch of the imagination. The cringe factor in this show comes in liking them, and being painfully aware that most marriages do not survive reality TV shows. I have my fingers crossed that the reality curse does not afflict them. It is fun to watch them laugh and gently bicker their way through some of the episodes. The great thing is that they are genuinely fond of each other, and are great parents to their two young daughters. They have a lovely house that is right for them and not over the top. Despite some red carpet turns, they are refreshingly real. We are all affected in some way by the recession, and so are they, which surprised me. Perhaps I just assumed that they were wealthy and immune to the pitfalls that most of us face, but not so. They discuss and display their lives with openness and refreshing candor. I have not watched this show every week, but I do TiVo it, and do watch it at a later date. If I don't like the description, I don't watch it. I'm sure I've missed some great moments, but I am fickle, and have no remorse about it. If you like to get a fix of famous people, try this show. They are real people with a real life and family, and are a lot of fun to spend some time with. This show works on many levels. If you want to watch a show that won't make you cringe like the vulgar Kardashians, this is your show. There is something immensely likable about this duo. He is a very serious man, and she is inclined to be raucous and silly, but she is not the airhead she pretends to be. These are fun people who like each other and aren't afraid to be themselves. They manage to do a show that doesn't seem to be a show, but a visit with some comfortable friends. I hope this show lasts, because they are so genuine. They are not vulgar, foolish, or conceited, and I think you will like them once you meet them.
