When The Real Housewives of New York City ends it’s fourth season Monday night on Bravo with the conclusion of the reunion, fans will start counting the days until season five premieres.  Season four of my favorite Housewives franchise has been quite enjoyable, even if Cindy Barshop paled in comparison to the much-missed Bethenny Frankel.  While you’re waiting for the next season to air, check out this hysterical parody of the show below:

Amy Winehouse, 1983-2011

Amy Winehouse was found dead in her home on Saturday.  A brilliant musician who achieved global fame while battling her own demons, she joins the list of other troubled musical greats who died at the exact same age of 27 years old, including Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison, and Kurt Cobain.
