Because there is absolutely nothing on T.V. I happened upon a new show on TLC, “Wives with Beehives” tonight.
Have you seen this?
It follows four women who have chosen to live a “vintage” lifestyle. Uh-huh. They’re all about embracing the 50’s in their wardrobes, hair, furniture selections and even marriages.
One Beehive (who did not have a beehive) said that she loved the happiness of the 50’s and she just really wanted to emulate that everyday. But ya’ll? These were the most caddy and ridiculous women I have seen in quite some time. They were competitive and silly. I couldn’t stop watching, though. Why? Because when I was a kid I loved the retrospective displays in the Henry Ford Museum that showed kitchens and living spaces from the various decades. I like the old stuff.
I’m a dork like that.
So seeing the mid-century furniture in their houses and kitschy nicknacks was cool… but these women were seriously The Bad Girls Club in corsets, pointy bras, June Cleaver dresses and gloves.
I think they were silently frustrated because they don’t have email addresses and iPhones.
P.S. I chuckled the eight-year-old daughter of one of the Beehives declared, “I HATE VINTAGE.” when asked if she liked her Mom’s style.
Tee hee. Good luck with that.
Update 12/28/12 – 10:56 a.m. MT: Now that Dollie from the show has commented on this post, I feel bad. Yep – seems like the producers of the show created the drama and made her out to be a bit of a monster. 🙁 Check out Dollie’s blog here! http://missdolliedeville.blogspot.com/
