I end my one-night trilogy on a high note, as I earn my final two stars for this week by making my own personal “tagline,” in the same vein as the characters from the Real Housewives franchise. To make a long story short, the Real Housewives is a series of reality shows that first debuted on the cable network, Bravo, in 2006, with the premiere of The Real Housewives of Orange County; since then, an additional six spin-offs have aired in the U.S. alone, and six more have followed suit internationally.

The tagline I chose to reflect my character, on a potential Real Househusbands show, reflects both the intellectual and hard-working sides of my personality. This is done by referencing the opening words of the “Seven Ages of Man” monologue from Act II, Scene VII, of the William Shakespeare play, As You Like It, while also emphasizing the fact that I put as much effort as humanly possible into my assignments, allowing all of my resulting performances to be memorable, for better or worse.

With this, I have exceeded my eight-star minimum for the week, and my audio assignments conclude, for now. Overall, I’d have to say that this was definitely a challenge for me, at least at first, but once I figured out how to work each task out properly, things were over and done with in a matter of hours.

As I mentioned in a previous post, all of the projects I completed as part of this week’s proceedings were all done in one take, including those I decided not to include in this three-parter. Among the wreckage is an alternate take of my Real Housewives tagline, which you can hear here. There isn’t much of a difference, except for me sounding even more like a “Southern Belle.”
