Last night’s finale of The Real Housewives of New York City, which has been succinctly recapped (will that genre ever die?) by Gawker, had one very memorable scene. But first, a caveat: I like my reality TV bad (like really, really, really bad), so this works for me.

Anyone else think it’s an homage?
