There was a time when one would cringe to make a trip "behind the Orange Curtain". Those times are still with us. Perhaps now more than ever.

But fortunately MTV, VH-1, Bravo, and A&E have decided to fight our (culture) war for us. Instead of castigating our neighbors through witty editorials, or knowingly pointed fingers, the networks simply shone a spotlight into the vacuous, empty, and shallow world south of the 91 (roughly).

Thanks to shows like "The OC", "Laguna Beach", and "The Real Housewives of Orange County", one simply has to turn on the television, extend a palm and sigh, "see", to explain what we in LA have had to put up with for decades.

"The Real Housewives..." return tonight on Bravo for a third season of outrage, plastic surgery, and spending their husband's money. We're still waiting for someone to coin the phrase, "you haven't hit rock bottom until you're married to one of the Real Housewives of Orange County", but it's bound to appear.
