Swedish Housewives in New York – what a sleeping pill


A picture named M2
I am totally spoiled and obsessed by the American housewives of DC, OC, NY and Atlanta. The dynamics between the wives, their vulgar fabulousness and ability to create drama out of thin air combined with a drive to shamelessly monetize their fame is really a vitamin pill to watch.  Hilarious is also those of them who claim to have class, wow, class in America is certainly not the same as in Europe, but American classy certainly is more entertaining than the European, muted, understated way of showing class.  

TV 3 had a huge success with first season of Swedish Housewives of Hollywood, with the obnoxious and fake Anna Anka who certainly is not very Swedish in her tacky, wacky way.  Maria Montezami, a typical Swedish housewife from the “whining belt” in Sweden, known for a dialect that sounds very – whining and a little bit stupid, is as loved by the Swedes as Anna Anka is hated.

This season when three new Swedish Hollywood wives where introduced I lost interest in the series, to boring.  And TV 3 just doesn’t get it, no one wants to see stiff, Swedish women show off their houses, cars, dogs and how they go shopping in ordinary boutiques or have boring dinner parties at home.  We want to see interaction and drama in the dynamics between the wives, the back stabbing, the rivalry, the screaming, the hair pulling, the cat fights, that’s what we like to see from the rich and fake fabs that volunteer to such shows. The Swedish wives are so careful to show off a façade that they think will impress their sisters back in Sweden that they become pathetic and boring.

Elin Nordengren's father critical to Swedish tabloids Aftonbladet and Expressen


Thomas Nordengren, Elin Nordengren's father, a reporter at Swedish Public Radio, is critical on how Swedish media reported on Tiger's and Elin's divorce. In an interview with the Swedish magazine Resume he claims that the tabloids Aftonbladet and Expressen is publishing information from the gossip sites without fact checking. Thomas Nordengren has been under a very high pressure from domestic and well as international media, he has not wanted to comment on the case though. The other day though, he told AP that "We love Elin, and we are so proud over the decency and strenght she has shown during these difficult times. We know that she will get through all this as an even stronger person, and that she has a bright future.

Strong, smart Swedish woman


Today the divorce between Elin Nordegren and Tiger Woods was finalized here in Florida. Elin did her best to protect her and her childrens safety and integrity by divorcing a husband who was an obvious liability. I wish Elin and her children the best of luck and I am sure these kids will do good in the hands of Elin.

Swede in Canada about Siv Cotton

Academic Shortcuts.
The new series Norska Hollywoodfruar (Norwegian Hollywood Wives) show the lives of some Norwegian trophy wives in Hollywood. Among them is Siv Cotton. In her introduction we're told that she - among other things - has earned a BA in the US. Then they show the diploma... it's from the University of Phoenix. The University of Phoenix has widespread reputation for being a diploma mill. A place where you can earn your degree with very little academic achievement and skills. If I were Siv Cotton, I would never have shown that diploma. As a matter of fact... I would not even put that on a CV or mention it to anyone. It's nothing to be proud of. It would have been interesting to see how Siv would fair at a real University.

Svenska Hollywoodfruar season 2 - a big yawn


A picture named M2

Two episodes of the second season of Svenska Hollywoodfruar (Swedish Hollywoodwifes) have been broadcasted by TV3 in Sweden. The women appearing in the docusoap obviously do not have to be wifes neither Swedish. Let us begin from the left of the photo above,
Paivi Hacker, 51 years old, born in Finland, moved to Sweden as a 9-year-old and to the USA at the age of 24.
Paivi is married to an American businessman, and it is obvious that she has spent more than half of her life in the US, she is not so Swedish anymore, she speaks with a Finnish-Swedish accent and her general appearance is as blank as her botoxed forehead. Paivi is a wife, but she is not Swedish.

Swedish housewifes in the USA, look at this!

Anna Anka, a role model for Swedish women?


A picture named M2

Anna Anka's verbal and physical abuse towards her husband Paul Anka has given certain American women with tall, blonde Swede complex a chance to strike back against us Swedish beauties. The blogger of Divorce Saloon concludes  after having followed the Paul and Anna Anka train wreck and also Elin Nordegren's alleged golf swing at her husband that Swedish women are "prone to anger, violence and histrionic fits".

Swedish housewives in the spotlight


A picture named M2     A picture named M3
One of the most talked about Swedes in Florida these days, Elin Nordegren's Tiger has turned into a cheetah and Anna Aberg's duck has left the pond.The Swedish blondes in distress have a few things in common, they allegedly attacked their husbands, Anna by hurling an ice cube and Elin by swinging a golf club. They married celebs and they have children with their famous husbands.  Their hubbies are good for millions of dollars and in case of a divorce they will probably walk away with some millions on their bank accounts.

Heja Elin!

Elin Woods is a Swedish woman with good education, a strong and successful family and very good friends that could not care less about the money her husband has made.  She has nothing to lose by leaving Tiger Woods and the friends and mistresses he bought. Obviously the so called friends of Tiger Woods who acted as pimps by sending willing mistresses all over the world do not care for him they care for his money and so did the mistresses.  I mean with friends that helps you to destroy your family, you certainly do not need enemies.

Mara New contacted us about her close relationship with Agnes-Nicole Winter from the Swedish TV- series Svenska Hollywoodfruar.  Mara can be seen in the show as the friend of Agnes-Nicole who takes care of her beloved dog, Ruffy.  In a few sentences Mara describes the first impressions many Americans get when the meet a Swede for the first time, “I was intimated by her beauty and somehow I thought she might be a little stuck up and I did not know that she has a great sense of humor.”  

Svenska Hollywoodfruar – Swedish Hollywood Wives

A bleak copy of the Real Housewives of series

The Swedish broadcast network, TV 3, has now aired three episodes of the record breaking series, Swedish Hollywood Wives.  Not only did the series have a viewer record for the first episodes, one of the reality stars, Anna Anka, has caused a national gender equality debate, she has also become so popular that she was jetted over from the US to participate in a Swedish talk show, Skavlan, she also mingled with Swedish B and C celebs at some parties.

The three episodes of the Hollywood Wives can be viewed online from www.tv3.se.  The Swedish Hollywood wives do not have much of a fab or glam factor and very little drama compared to the US series The Real Housewives of that without doubt served as an inspiration for the Swedish, low budget and most of the time boring copy. Very Swedish, very lagom (just enough).
