Some need to go ASAP, and Bravo usually does a good job at realizing who has staying power and who doesn’t. But there are some who I feel deserved a second chance. It is hard for any housewife to come on and join an already established cast, especially when some cities have been on TV for 10+ years. What is the perfect recipe for a good housewife?

Ninety percent of the prescription drugs consumed in the United States are generics, and the majority of them are produced overseas, mostly in India and China. Let’s say you’re a manufacturer looking to get in on America’s $104 billion generic drug market. You want to make the lowest-cost drugs possible and sell them at the highest possible price.

Graham Brown Interview Questions for Steve Jackowski

1. Which book (or other media) would you say is your largest influence? As dated as it might be, I’d have to say it’s The World According to Garp by John Irving.
