FIRST, THE NEW YORK DOLLS, NOW, THE RUSSIAN DOLLS
Despite being “politically incorrect,” Americans – and probably everyone else- LOVE stereotypes. Other cultures are fascinating. Hence the popularity of the entire “Housewives” franchise, and of course, Jersey Shore. The latest to cash in on the stereotype thing is “Russian Dolls.” The series documents the lives of six outspoken, narcissistic Russian–American women who love to indulge in plastic surgery, parties, and expensive designer clothing – and they are not above showing off. They all happen to live in Brighton Beach, located in Brooklyn, New York. Sounds like a good time to us. It debuts on Lifetime next Thursday.
