This has to be a joke. Thankfully it won’t go far. If we are going to represent Pleasanton, maybe a family that’s been here for generations. This is horrible and embarrassing.

One of the players on this cast has already thrown down the race card. It will apparently be a bashing of white racism (she gives no specifics, we are such an easy target) week by week. Is this how you draw an audience? Sad.

This show will be a horrible representation of the South Asian community’s I am a first generation Indian American, born in Hayward and raised in Pleasanton since 1990. My parents immigrated in the 70’s. Worked their butts off and struggled day and night to give me and good life. This is the journey of countless Indian Americans across the country, not this.

Also, yes I experienced a bit of racism growing up in an affluent white town, but guess what, at least my parents worked their butts off to give me that life. Why not talk about that? Instead of glamorizing your success?

Good grief. This will be about as representative for the Indian community at large as Housewives of...Atlanta, New York, Dubai..... is for American housewives - Not. As much as they complain about Netflix and Amazon's limited representation, if either of those services offered to pick them up there'd be no question about it. Who knows, maybe we'll see a knock off come to the big league streaming services -
Its interesting that they mention discrimination because when I look around our local cities these days, I'm the minority!

This looks like a fun show. It's good that Judge talks about the racism that she experienced from white people. That is alive and well today in Pleasanton, though thankfully less of it now.


You say "I'm the minority", but you leave of guessing as to what kind of minority. Are you being discriminated against?

BobB, Wear a mask, wash your hands and socially distance and you will not be discriminated against.

Everyone wants their 15 minutes of fame, let them have it, and if it fails, that's life.

Not everyone believes everything they see on TV is real :) and this program is not a documentary, so there you go.
