My mother watches this cr**. I have to say, this is not the Feminist, empowering stuff its made out to be. Ultimately, the womens lives are about meeting men, pleasing men and meeting 'the one'.
Its not realistic either, it portrays women as a sisterhood and supportive of each other. Womens lives are not really like this, at all. Womens lives and friendships with other women are very political, competitive and based often and sadly, on gender politics.
And when I've been to NY, none of the women look like this nor have the lifestyles like this!
