'AHS' star Sarah Paulson loves 'Real Housewives' as much as you do

sarah-paulson-american-horror-story-coven-gi.jpgCelebrities: they're just like us! They, too, spend an inordinate amount of time in front of the television watching rich women fight with each other. Here's another member of the "Real Housewives" Lovers Club: "American Horror Story: Coven" star Sarah Paulson.

The actress, who also stars in the Golden Globe-nominated film "12 Years a Slave," says that during her downtime between projects she spends a lot of time watching "The Real Housewives" of whatever city. "A lot of 'The Real Housewives' is really the sad truth," she says on "Good Morning America" Thursday (Dec. 26).

Don't worry, she has some slightly more intellectual pursuits too: "I do a lot of reading," she says. "I'm a voracious reader."

Of her FX hit, "American Horror Story," Paulson says, "it is about just sitting on your couch and going on this wild ride that is sometimes quite implausible. But ... we all kind of wish we could be witches and [it's about] desperately wishing you were a member of the coven and how cool it all seems."
