Socialites Wax Philosophical on ‘Housewives,’ Superwomen
Since The Real Housewives of New York City debuted on Tuesday, we've been thinking a lot about women who try to do it all. We ran into a gaggle of exactly those kinds of gals at last night's cocktail party to honor Brian Atwood and the charity New Yorkers for Children. Susan Shin, whom we see all over town at the fanciest events, told us it's definitely possible to try to spread one's self too thin. "I think we all have that tendency. It's the era of the superwoman," she said. "Husbands, kids, work, very successful careers, friends, social life, philanthropy. It's hard to do it all." So, Suze, what do you think of Real Housewives? "I don't think it's a true representation of housewives or other women in New York."
