Why did the ability to scream, whine and bicker translate into being "smart"? Did I miss that memo?

Smart just doesn't have to be about intelligence. I think the women are on the list more for their cunningness and shrewdness. You may not like them but you talk about them and ratings have been the highest that they have ever been. So you have to give them ALL credit for something.

Sherri read "Star Jones for Dummies" before audition. Smartest buy she ever made at Barnes and Noble.

It's not as stupid to not know the earth is round as it is to admit to not knowing that the earth is round. Sometimes you just got to play it off. LOL!

"Smart just doesn't have to be about intelligence. I think the women are on the list more for their cunningness and shrewdness."

Then put them on a cunning and shrewd list; the truly smart people are the show's producers, who, no doubt, encourage them to caterwaul on TV every morning.
