'Rich Kids of Beverly Hills' Come to E!

Rich Kids of Beverly Hills Cast

With their new reality series, Rich Kids of Beverly Hills E! may be hoping to reach a new demographic, with what is essentially a Real Housewives show staring real children of Housewives' peers. If the show takes off, don't be surprised if Rich Kids of New York and other spin-offs premiere next year.

Reportedly inspired by a popular Tumblr page, "Rich Kids of Instagram" (#richkidsofinstagram), where casting directors--and the rest of us--first encountered Dorothy Wang and were introduced to the lavish lives of Wang and other spoiled rich kids.

Now E! has created a reality show around Wang, her best friend Morgan Stewart, Stewart's boyfriend Brendan Fitzpatrick, and several other pals. Along with the five regular cast members, other Rich Kids, including Magic Johnson's son E.J., will reportedly make appearances during the eight-episode season.

Rich Kids of Beverly Hills premieres on E!, Sunday, January 19th at 10PM.

I cannot believe that E is falling into the foray that other networks have by airing a reality tv program about the super rich. No, I am not jealous because I have never watched any reality shows but with all that is happening in the world with poor children dying everyday due to poverty the thought of watching people spend money that they have not even earned on their own turns my stomach. What is even worse is that they spend on idiotic things while following their empty minds to even more useless pursuits. Why not a show that shows, truly shows, the humanitarian side of the super rich? I guess because that really does not exist so it would have to be made up! Your network loses me as a customer, why would I pay to help the super rich become even more rich? I will not!

This show is dumb. All these kids care about is taking selfies and showing them on Instagram. I totally agree with Ms Moore

Todays society is all about money and that is what these shows are displaying, be rich and spend money foolishly and act dumb. What are we teaching our children. These shows are only becoming popular because people are watching them. It is really sad, that instead of reading and educating the mind people are degrading themselves to watching nonsense.

I am not sure why anyone would want to watch a mindless show of excess. No I have never watched it but have read the pathetic reviews. Yet another look at me show. Enough already. Can networks come up with good entertainment?

These shows would be tolerable if they were doing something worthwhile like volunteering at the almost countless number of charities available.

Instead we are subjected to their reality which is more than just a bit skewed, to say the least. Call me jealous or whatever you want to call me, I don’t really care. I know reality when I see it.

What I do care about is good hard working people who have not only lost their jobs, but in many cases their life savings. I also care about excessive spending whether it be the rich or our own Government.

Where I come from people live within their means and help out everyone they can with the surplus. My Father in law was a millionaire who got there by working hard all of his life, and he never bought anything he didn’t need or afford.

He could have anything he wanted and he did. Because what he wanted was to be of service to as many as possible. He died at 51 re-enforcing the adage “that only the good die young.”

To all who will listen: You will not be remembered for the clothes you wear or the car you drive or the house you live in. You will be remembered for who you really were. No matter what is read or said at your funeral.
