Local Ladies Spoof 'Real Housewives' to Raise Money

We all know that the Real Housewives franchise is very serious business. But even epic, nation-changing conflict can sometimes be fodder for humor.

The Huffington Post reports that six ladies from Westchester, CA put together a video called "Real Housewives of Westchester" (get it?), which spoofs the real "Real Housewives." It is actually remarkably well done -- I don't know whether these gals are actresses or what, but they sip wine, throw childlike fits and stab one another in the back with notable panache.

The idea was hatched as a way to raise money for the Westchester Lutheran School, where the ladies kids' go in real life, and it was put together by KCET producer Karen Foshay. Parents had to pay $50 to see it.

The video is long, but maybe you're really bored at work today. Also, it's really funny, so, you know, it's worth it. Enjoy.
