I'll admit it: I love to hate Bravo's reality show "The Real Housewives of Orange County," which aired its season finale last night. In particular, I find the "character" of Jo to be deliciously abhorrent. Perhaps it's because she's younger than the other "housewives," but there's a certain self-assured pretension to the older women that Jo has yet to grow into. (Remember how excited she was about being able to see Bloomingdale's from her apartment?) She's so insecure it makes me cringe, and yet her fake confidence borders on delusional.
Ready for the best part? Jo (whose full name is Jo De La Rosa) is now pursuing a "singing" career, and you can listen to her first attempt at becoming the new pop tart on Jo's Myspace page. Called "Falling," the track is basically Jo's TV whininess put to music, along with electronic drums and some rudimentary guitar. Trust me; you have to hear this.
