"A Vulgar Display of Wealth"

What exactly is he wearing? And does this dress force you to zoom in on the crotch, or what?

I think Bethenny's quote neatly describes this show. Maybe "a vulgar display of vulgarity" is more fitting.

My, but these people are awful. I will think of a more articulate reaction tomorrow, I am sure.

Jeana, Vicki, Tamra--even you, Lauri, but not Quinn or Jo--I miss you. You threw around money too, but you were so much more likable.

Did you watch? Chime in.

I don't even know who they are, but they're both dressed hideously.

Money can't buy taste that's for sure.

This show really does make you miss the girls of the OC.

Kelly said...

you think to the premiere she'd wear the $7,000 dress, not the $3,000 (or atleast not wear a dress we know how much she paid!)

I love how that one couple spent "between 5 and 6 figures" on their Cavalli shopping spree and yet they live in a townhouse that looks like it was decorated by a college-age frat boy. Black leather sofas and a particle-board bookshelf full of DVD's in the living room? I expected better style from an obviously closeted husband. How do you say "social climbing posers" in French?

Lisa said...

I agree. They definitely aren't as likeable as their OC counterparts. My favorite quote was "I could NEVER live in the suburbs (make near vomiting face)". Get over yourself, lady.

Crap! I missed it? Writing a sticky note to myself right now to set the Tivo!

This is marinating on my DVR with a couple of epis of the Millionare Matchmaker and I cannot wait to curl up and watch it!

I continue to do the math in my head about what they potentially make. He running a hotel, she in visual merchandising...and I don't see how they could afford to shop like that. I must not be understanding a component of what they are doing.

I can say that she needs to invest in a new colorist.

These women are not likable at all.

So far the Countess and Bethenny do not make me want to hurl myself off of a very tall building. I cannot stand Ramona and that want to be European couple. Francois and Johann? I just started to laugh...

I could write a more detailed hate letter, but that is what you are for...GO SGM!

I miss the OC...

amber said...

Yes, saw the preview, and it made me miss Orange County something awful! I just don't think I "like" them at all, but maybe I'll warm up considering the lack of other options!

zakary said...

These women are vile. I won't be watching again. That's a lie. I will watch the whole season just so I can make fun of them.

His outfit makes sense when you realize he runs a hotel. He just borrowed it from the doorman. Rats! I could not stay awake. I dozed off and when I woke up someone was playiing tennis with their daughter. Yawn...back to sleep.

Agree with all of you here! And yeah, Alex's home looked like it was furnished exclusively by IKEA. Now I know what living beyond ones means really means.

Cindy said...

It looks like he's wearing my old high school marching band uniforms.
ick.

SGM said...

Love the comments! Keep 'em coming.

Katie, I thought doorman too! But I like band uniform even better.

OK, let me just say none of the "Hamptons" houses were owned by those folks. They all looked like rentals, expensive rentals but rentals. And they were no where near the real Hamptons which are so far out of their price range it makes me laugh myself silly. With that being said the shopping husband is clearly in the closet of denial!!! And what is wrong with his wifes face and faux french??? What a trainwreck!
