I'm clearly not alone. It seems that moneyed asshole-centric programming has reached new heights, as one can see by not only the overarching success of the aforementioned shows but the slew of new ones filling up the fall calendar and beyond. There is, of course, the much anticipated return of 90210, some scripted series called Privileged, that reality Devil Wears Prada knock-off Stylista, and the requisite parade of E! specials that will doubtless document the excesses of the young, rich and annoying in that special way that only E! does.
Lifetime, normally the last to adopt these kinds of market trends, is jumping on the bandwagon too. Today it was announced that the network for sad single forty-somethings is developing a six-episode (only six? Waaaah!) reality show "starring a trio of twentysomething socialites looking to make their mark on Washington both socially and professionally." Jackpot! The series, titled Blonde Charity Mafia, will allegedly trail a trio of young DC doyennes as they throw money at charitable causes and stumble home drunk from parties in Georgetown wearing ballgowns and white Reeboks. OK I made up that last part about the Reeboks. But if this is gonna be veritas in any way, there had better be a goodly amount of fashion faux pas, 'cause as anyone who's ever been to DC will tell you, it's a town that's as sartorially challenged as it is politically encumbered. Oh snap, I should totally be the narrator of this gay-ass show!
Production begins next month which means I won't be getting my grubby paws on this scintillating suckfest nearly soon enough. But good things come to those who wait. Or so they tell me.
