SNL Feminism: “The Real Houswives of Disney”
Finally a comparison between the uber-femme Disney princess trope and the now nearly cliche “The Real Housewives” franchise. A Saturday Night Live sketch entitled “The Real Housewives of Disney,” aired this weekend, pinning Cinderella as a drunken and debauched, Belle as bitchy, and Lindsay Lohan as a judgmental Rapunzel.
All actresses donned the stereotypical Disney princess garb and worked it. What do you think? An opportunity for a discourse on po-mo feminism, or just laughs?
