It never occurred to us that NBA legends could possibly love a show like Real Housewives, but when it comes to Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, he actually thinks the reality show is the best thing that happened to television.
In a recent blog entry, Kareem compares the Real Housewives to Susan Faludi's 1991 National Book Award-winning book, Backlash: The Undeclared War Against American Women and even to a Shakespearean tragedy.
So just when we thought he wasn't being serious, he went into saying the the Andy Cohen's Bravo show is a “version of Warhol’s Campbell’s soup cans and multi-colored Marilyns are the table-flipping divas and surgically-buoyed breasts he puts ‘on display.’”
And to put the cherry on the top of why RH is the show to watch, he simply says: Rich folk be crazy.
When it all comes down to it, who doesn't like watching wealthy people make an a$$ out of themselves, so Abdul-Jabbar definitely has a point, which means we'll continue to watch rich folk be crazy!! LOLz
