What did we do wrong? Have we offended you in some way? Is there a reason you are allowing our ears to suffer such pain? I can’t help thinking there is, after the way we’ve been forced to listen to the auto-tuned prowess of both Real Housewives of Atlanta‘s Kim Zolciak and Real Housewives of New York‘s LuAnn de Lesseps in “Don’t Be Tardy for the Party” and “Money Can’t Buy You Class,” respectively. And now, to make matters worse, Real Housewives of New Jersey‘s Danielle Staub is apparently recording a duet called “Real Close,” with singer Lori Michaels.

Okay, truth is, I haven’t heard Staub sing, so I shouldn’t judge — after all, she says that she used to sing in an R&B band. (And if we’ve learned anything about these women, it’s that they’re not delusional. Sarcasm!) Plus, she has plenty of life experience to channel into her passion. Maybe we have the next Madonna on our hands here and we don’t even know it!

Okay — too optimistic. But however Danielle’s single turns out, please God, make this trend stop with her. Let peace be with us.

All my best,
