Islamabad, Pakistan -(

Reality TV’s latest offering is sure to raise eyebrows and a few tempers as season one of The Real Housewives of Islamabad makes its way to the small screen. Shot on location in Pakistan’s capitol, Islamabad, the first of sixteen segments is set to begin final editing as soon as goat herding and shearing process’ finalize sometime after the winter birthing season for three of the woman who comprise the six main characters.

Filmed in typical Pakistani mud and wood hovels, all six characters have promised to use western names in order to protect their true identity. A similar TV project last fall by the BBC resulted in all the women suffering beatings by their husbands, rendering them un-filmable because of swollen lips, acid burns to their faces, and several broken noses.

Episode One

The first segment has the women (Cora, Britney, Alice, Frenchie, Salome, and Dawn) shopping at a local food bazaar while wearing a typical burka and having their dirty-feeted children in tow. The women are identified on-screen by subtitles as they barter for the best prices for dried goat head, baked flatbread, and fly-infested milk products.

The series promises a few surprising twists as in episode one, Cora accuses Salome of stealing goat milk from her storage bladder, and Dawn flys off the handle at a catty remark made by Frenchie concerning the size of Dawn’s rear end and how it ‘shakes the burka’ when she walks. Alice finds a condom in her husband’s wallet and uses it to make a goat and cheese sausage.

Episode Two

In episode two,Alice is scared when her husband unloads a full magaine from his AK-47 in the huts thatched roof monentarily scaring everyone including the film crew who are panicked when the roof catches fire. They rush to put out the spreading flames because the local firetruck has been broken down for six months.

Episode Three

In episode three, Britney is shocked to hear her husband has joined the Taliban and fears for her life if he ever discovers she’s plucked her eyebrows and took a bath before summer. Alice finds a 1978 Playboy magazine hidden under her husband’s bed and is aghast at the photos. Dawn, Frenchie, and Cora show off their recent birthing results. Frenchie is dismayed over the vast amount of facial hair on her newborn daughter.

Episode four

touches on a seemingly universal problem with rebelious teenaged children when Dawn finds out her oldest son Amul, age 15, has taken the family’s flying carpet out for joy rides without permission. Cora finds semen stains on her daughter’s burka and forbids her from listening to any western 8-track cassettes after meal time and takes away all her Wayne Newton cassettes as punishment. Alice discovers she’s pregnant again with number 13. Britney’s husband Mohammed approaches her with the idea of having western silicone implants to enhance her breast size from a 34C to a 38DD.

The Real Housewives of Kabul will be shown on cable TV’s Discovery Channel beginning in November. Viewer discretion is advised.
