Guilty Pleasure

I've never been big on reality television. Yes, I've watched my share of The Hills and the city (don't judge!) but the other shows never interested me. Lowest on my list of potential shows to watch was the Real Housewives series. The ladies from each city installment were always plastered on the pages of my beloved tabloids, but none of them seemed interesting enough to garner my precious television time.

This season everything changed - The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills stole my heart. From the superficial made-for-television friendships to the immense plastic surgery, Kim Richards, Kyle Richards, Adrienne Maloof, Lisa VanderPump, Taylor Armstrong and Camille Grammer are too entertaining to pass up. The catfights, the overwhelming wealth and the selfish lives these ladies lead makes The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills my guilty pleasure.

The two breakout stars of the season are Camille Grammer and Kyle Richards. The uber wealthy ladies both live in the lap of luxury, but are poles apart. While Camille constantly flashes her riches, her homes, her entourage of help, Kyle lives a more demure life. That line Camille feeds us at the beginning of the show about wanting to step out of soon-to-be-ex-husband Kelsey Grammer's shadow? An impossible job when you spend your screen time throwing around his name! (Note: the two were very much happily married during filming). While Camille relies on her four nannies to care for her two children, Kyle is a very hands-on mom. She still leads a charmed life, but there's something about Kyle that I can relate to. Perhaps it's her fear of flying (me too!) or long brown hair (I want it!).

To see what all the fuss is about, tune into The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. You won't regret it!

  1. this show is like crack.

    you forgot to mention that camille's children were born via surrogacy.
    she is clearly sedated on something for most of the series thus far. I love watching this train derail from the tracks.

    Kyle and Mauricio. Swoon.

  2. bitches be crazy. am i right girls?
