In Russia every woman is a doll.
Have you seen that show? It’s on Lifetime! I first heard about it a bout a year and a half ago. One of my friends told me they had castings for a Russian version of Jersey Shore. That was when she told me to get on that show too. Now who is the crazy one?
My husband and I have watched the first episode together, once the second one came around, he couldn’t take it anymore, it gave him a headache. So now I am on my own!
2 episodes later I can definitely tell you that Russian Dolls are nothing like Jersey Shore, we, ladies and gentlemen, have been hit with another Real Housewives, it’s just they have a Russian accent.
The scene where one of the older women goes shopping for jewelry, after her husband just gave her $25,000 and she asks him – What can you buy nowadays for $25,000? is just like when one of the housewives (Teresa Giudice) goes jewelry shopping in Atlantic City. And, honey, back to your question about 25 quid – I have a lot of answers to that!
The one exciting thing about the show are the three young girls ( only because I can relate to them more, since we are closer in age)
Unfortunately that is the only thing that makes them relatable for me. At least one of them knows how to cook borscht!
One of my Russian friends told me earlier today that she has no desire to be associated with those women from the show. And the funny thing is – once you tell people you are Russian – they ask you one of the two questions (or sometimes both) – Are you a mail order bride? and Have you seen Russian Dolls?
I simply want to tell you, that not all Russian women are like the ones in the show. And not all Russian women are mail order brides either. We are not gold-diggers, or poorly educated blondes, who are looking for a sugar daddy. We just want a fresh start, and the possibilities, we would’ve never had in Russia. And if you see me in the street and start speaking Russian to me, I will probably reply back in Russian. I do say “Zdravstvyite” to the local jewish grandma’s after all.
So watch Russian Dolls, don’t watch it – it’s up to you, just remember – it’s TV and it’s all entertainment! So have FUN!
PS. And remember – this is what a real Russian Doll looks like
Also, there are some pretty awesome Russian Doll necklaces available on the Internet and even at Target. I couldn’t find the exact picture of the one they sell there, but it looks something like this
