  1. I would think Armenian people would not want her mentioning that she is from there. They are usually not too keen on women taping sex videos

  4. “Woman has to be mysterious, always looking immaculate, a great cook, and a good housewife.” My mom. Speaking of high expectations and unrealistic perceptions

  6. My husband is now singing “I believe in makeover, I believe in face lift” (to the tune of “I believe I can fly”). I think it sums up his “American, but intimately familiar with russian culture” view of the show.

  7. VB, you captured the ethos of this beautifully.   I did a piece about this and got a real hand slapping from someone involved in the show who claimed that they were trying to show the “plight of Eastern European immigrants in NYC.”  I said I hadn’t captured that pathos unless he meant the fact that they were still eating Salat Olivier, which of course is very much uphill work.  Let’s keep in touch on this one!!  Possibly Tweet the next one up?
