When will those Real Housewives start wearing sensible shoes?

    1 of 1 2 of 1

      Earlier this week, Georgia Straight writer Michelle da Silva and Straight.com editor Stephen Hui indulged in what's become an annual guilty pleasure.

      They trundled off to meet the cast of The Real Housewives of Vancouver.

      If you care about this show—and I suspect that many of you don't—they are (from left to right, above) Amanda Hansen, Robin Reichman, Ronnie Negus, Jody Claman, Ioulia Reynolds, and Mary Zilba.

      You've already noticed that Michelle, who's in the middle, is the only one in sensible shoes.

      That got me wondering if the show's producers have considered taking out an insurance policy on the ankles of those Real Housewives, whose shoes look like they collectively cost $3,000.

      If Mariah Carey can insure her legs for $1 billion, there's no reason that Ronnie's astragalus isn't worthy of some protection.

      Because odds are that if she and the others keep this footwear for an entire season, there's going to be an accident.

      I've scanned the photo several times and can't find anything that looks like a "real housewife" ... or even a "real" anything.
