I am 29 years old and married. I pay taxes and tithe to my church. I bleed blue for Kentucky and love my Husband more than sweet tea. I also dream of being a real housewife.

When The Real Housewives of Orange County premiered in March 2006, I was a college senior sitting in my tiny apartment bedroom watching an even smaller 12-inch TV. Fast forward six years, on Friday, April 27, 2012, I felt like a celebrity. While I’m active on social media (i.e. Facebook, blogs, and Pinterest), I don’t spent a lot of time on Twitter. But within a two hour period, TWO Housewives mentioned me (@nmhutch) in their messages, or tweets. Can you say AMAZE-BALLS?!?!?!

The first came from Kim Zolciak-Biermann, star of The Real Housewives of Atlanta and wife to Kroy, an NFL football player for the Atlanta Falcons. She re-tweeted one of my tweets about her new show, Don’t Be Tardy For the Wedding, on Bravo.

The second Twitter mention came from Kara Keough, the daughter of Jeana (an original cast member) from The Real Housewives of Orange County. Even though Kara is not an official Housewife, she’s one of my favorites because of her down-to-earth personality, as well as her intelligence (she’s a recent UCLA graduate), maturity, and beauty.

It’s back to the real world for me. Although, I hear Bravo may create a new series in Texas. Do you think they’d give me a spot on The Real Housewives of Dallas? One can dream!
