As Sonja would say, fresh season, fresh guests, fresh everything!

Following last year's massive house-cleaning, which saw the exits of Jill Zarin, Alex McCord, Kelly Bensimon and Cindy Barshop, the Season 5 premiere of The Real Housewives of New York City welcomed three new ladies into the lion's den.

10 Things We Learned From The Real Housewives of New York City's Morocco Trilogy

Las Vegas, Texas, Miami, Mexico, Italy. Yes, the Real Housewives love to travel almost as much as they like a good glass of wine. Almost. Not to be outdone, the New York City cast took the term exotic getaway to a whole new level with a Morocco trip spanning three episodes. Part Sex and the City 2 come to life and part sequel to last year's Scary Island excursion (neither of which we knew we wanted), the Real Housewives of New York City's time abroad was hilarious, dramatic, mildly offensive and — believe it or not — educational! Here are the top 10 things we learned from their trip of a lifetime:

From The Louds to Snooki: A History of Reality TV Stars Blaming the Edit

The most illuminating part of HBO's original movie Cinema Verite (airing Saturday at 9/8c) comes at its very end. We get to see a clip of the real Loud family, whose participation on the first modern reality show, 1973's An American Family, is central to the film. Verite transitions from the fictional portrayal of the Louds to footage from their actual appearance on The Dick Cavett Show, which was part of their self-orchestrated, damage-control tour following the mass criticism they received from viewers as a result of the show. During the segment, they voice their disdain for having their lives edited and their personalities categorized to suit plotlines. In response, Cavett snorts, "Anybody who's in show business would have to call you naïve to think that you could think that you could appear on television and not have it selected, edited..."

If anyone had a right to complain about editing, surely it was this family of guinea pigs. What's amazing about this is that some 38 years later, we're still having this conversation as a culture...
