    vh1's "You're Cut Off"

    Is anyone else planning on watching this trainwreck? (starts tonight at 9ET with a repeat at 11pm (along with 34826 reruns during the next week))

    I watched most of the first season of this show, and the OTT and histrionics were beyond . If the new season holds up or surpasses last season's hot mess, it will easily be one of my temporary guilty pleasures

    ETA: PL would go bananas over the infinite number of shoes these beyotches have in their closet/suites

    Haha I thought I was the only one who caught this the last time it came on.

    The first season was about some stuck-up spoiled princesses who were nominated by their families (AKA cut-off) and forced to live in a "normal" house together and learn how to do things for themselves.

    I might have to watch this too. I can imagine the hilarious things that upset the pretty princesses.

They have to live in a "middle-class" home with shared bedrooms, condense their massive wardrobes into one regular suitcase, share chores, do grocery shopping, and *gasp!* actually work to have money to buy food and other necessities.

    Last season was beyond hilarious, so I'm hoping this one can top it. I will say that this group of brats is better looking than the delusional (and rode-hard-and-put-up-wet) twits last year.

    What blows my mind is the incredulous sense of entitlement these bitches have - they really do think they're the most beautiful and stunning creatures to grace the earth and that their shit don't stink. Even more mind-boggling is that their parents allowed this to happen.

    One thing's for sure - the catfights that ensue make the idiots from Rock of Love seem like nothing

    I never saw the first season, but I'm tivo'ing it now. I'm currently watching Enough Already in which Oprah's organizational expert helps people deal with their clutter. It's like the old show Clean House, except it's just Peter Walsh and not really the whole team that redecorated the rooms.

    Wheeeeee!! Let the insanity begin!!

    I want to know who the mystery "cut off" chick is. If it's someone from last season, my bet is on either Gia or Erica (who some may remember from The Bachelor - the crazy bitch with the tiara fetish who had a major meltdown when she got booted on a double-elimination date).

    I can't believe there is a second season of this show.

    Then again, I can't believe I watched most of the first season. I always hated myself in the morning, but it was so hard to just not look.

    You mean like that episode of "The Facts of Life" when Blair goes home and is hanging out with her rich snobby best friend and the friend is all bent out of shape because the maid wasn't around the penthouse for some reason I forget why and Blair said no problem, we'll make lunch ourselves I know how to do that now because I'm hanging with Tooty and Jo and Natalie and Mrs. Garrett and we don't have maids at school, we'll make tuna fish so let's see can of tuna, mayonnaise, now name crunchy and the rich snotty friend said "Diamonds!" You mean like that?

    I can't believe I missed a first season of this horror.

    It's all still there: http://www.vh1.com/shows/youre_cut_o...1/series.jhtml

    My favorite episode is the one where they get jobs. Erica's job interview is one for the ages.

    Whee! First season links!


    I just saw the previews for the upcoming episodes. I'm hooked.

    More like they have to make themselves a tuna sandwich for lunch, and they cry because tuna is food for poor people, then a couple of them stare at the can for 40 minutes and can't figure out how to open it, then one of them kind of taps it with a can opener, then they decide making tuna sandwiches is too hard so they just eat the bread plain and cry about it.

    Well, there ya go. I also watched last season , and all you need to do is look at their parents to understand why these women turned out so "entitled," to put it mildly.

    I remember the episode when they brought the parents on, and to say the apple doesn't fall far from the tree would be a drastic understatement in this case. Erika's mom was particularly

    Talk about delusional.

    This show sounds beyond awesome. I hope a cable channel in the desolate north (i.e. Canada) picks it up.

    That scene had me howling with .

    I was half-watching during the first run - did that one girl with the out-of-control hair walk off the set and quit?

    Definitely!! Didn't she say that she was in law school, too?

    Erica's mom's psychobabble speech to her daughter at the "graduation" ceremony was such a garbled mess I don't think google could have translated it.

    Also, it was hard to tell who'd had more plastic surgery - Erica or her mother. IIRC, in the "epilogue/follow-up" graphics, it said that Erica had one or two more procedures done . She's one trip under the knife from outdoing Heidi Montag .

    Yes. She was the one with the rich boyfriend and was threatening to cut off sex. I wonder if she has one of his friends lined up as a back-up because I can't see this relationship working.

    Thanks a lot, another mindless show that I am now addicted to. I watched the first 2 episodes of season 1 tonight. I don't think I could like anyone less than I like Gia.

    And then screech at each other over which filthy, ugly cow who looks 40 without makeup and ugly hair extensions has to brush up the crumbs, which ends with them throwing bread at each other and getting into a hair-pulling match.

    She was! She had to drop out to do the show. But she was okay with that because it was so tough when all the other students insisted on studying instead of working on their appearance. She wanted to focus on herself, but not in a narcissistic way.

    The best part of that whole episode is the look on the interviewer's (plastic) face when the girls answer his questions.

    Last I heard, Erica was back in law school and should graduate this year. There's an essay somewhere on the net about how reality TV is conspiring to make lawyers look bad by casting people like her.

    Bwahaha, I'd forgotten that. And there was that session where Erica's mom met with the life coach and couldn't grasp the concept of "superficial."

    I did feel sorry for Erica, though; her dad really created her as she is.

    Oh, dear, if you've seen only two episodes, you have not yet begun to dislike Gia, who does NOT improve upon further acquaintance. Toward the end of the season, you'll learn something that will explain some of what's going on with her, but it doesn't make her much more likable.
