Being a military spouse myself (Marines, thank God), I'm not sure why I thought it would be a good idea to watch a reality show about other military spouses, but I did. Thank goodness I was only lobbing invisible daggers at my TV, otherwise it wouldn't have survived the viewing!
Lindsey Bergeron (AKA: used to be fat Army wife, but got the Army to pay for gastric by-pass and then upgraded her meal ticket to a Major) -- she can just GTFO my TV right now. Her reading of her Army wife handbook and then going around telling everyone how to act appropriately made me stabby. Then, when these totally normal people take offense to her being the congeniality monitor and tell her to eff off, she responds with, "This is why we (officer wives and enlisted wives) don't associate." Okay, that's not an O/E thing; that's an asshole/non-asshole thing -- her being the former. Also, I don't feel an ounce of pity for her marrying a man who absolutely can't leave being Major Douchecanoe at the door and shows his dog more affection than his wife. That's why you don't marry for rank or status, bricks! I cheered aloud when that girl came on and said that she was no better than her (especially given Lindsey's messy past as junior enlisted wife and mother) and telling her on the phone to go fuck herself. That made the 50 minutes I endured of Lindsey worth watching!
I really liked Rynn Randall and Blair Flanagan -- "Ever been in a Turkish prison?" Very down-to-earth and more mature than your typical military spouse. Though, I'm not sure I would've gone lingerie shopping and filmed it for TV like Blair did, but I was more shocked that Lindsey was with her and didn't find it inappropriate! Anyway, I'll probably keep watching just for those two, but if Lindsey starts in again with her brand of bullshit, I might have to pull the 'chute.
