What do Army wives think of "Army Wives"?

In another group, a few women are discussing how excited they are about a new season of the show "Army Wives".  I mentioned that I have seen a few reruns from the first season, and that it does not seem very realistic/authentic.  This led to me wondering what my fellow Army (or other military branches) wives think about the show.

DISCLAIMERS:

1) It is not my intention to put down women who do enjoy this show, or any show, for that matter.  If they like it, military or not, then okay.  To each his own.

2) Yes, I realize it is meant to be a dramatization, and that the producers/writers have to keep ratings up.

 

In a nutshell, I am....a hippy-dippy; music craving; picture painting; story writing; kitchen loving; nature loving; vegetarian meal diggin'; OCD having; semi co-sleeping; non-spanking; big family wanting; homeschooling; homemaking; wife of a soldier; SAHM to the beautiful Lucy Rose!

I love army wives!!!

Of course it isn't going to be perfect but some of the drama is along with the emotions and the bond some of us form.

Mainly, I think I could not get over a few specific aspects of the show.  Like the houses. :)
