    I'm watching season 2. Wow, looks like they went for the really feisty girls! Lots of fights in the previews.

    I started watching season one. I think Chrissy annoys me more than Gia. Someone should smack that compact and lip gloss out of her hands.


    Wait. I just saw where they started work. Erica smack talking about getting the best job and being the manager is already going to piss me off. I am anticipating massive fights with the others.

    Apparently one of the girls from the current season was arrested last night in L.A. for DUI. I don't mind so much when these "princesses" fail at life. Her name is Jennifer Jowett.

    Oh, and can someone tell me what the audience finds out about Gia later on in the show? I doubt I will finish season 1 because the new one has started.

    Since mpal is watching season one:

    Spoiler



    The show makes the girls look even more useless than they really are. Gia owns and runs a successful restaurant (I read somewhere that she is also--get this--a former cop, of all things); Erica really was a law student; Pam was doing an internship in banking that she wasn't allowed to talk about on camera (which is why everyone started thinking she was an escort, LOL), Jackie had a recording deal, etc. This is not to say that they aren't all spoiled brat princesses, but the show very carefully screened out things that might offset that image a bit.

    And yes, mpal, I thought Chrissy was THE most annoying person on the show. And so does Laura. Wait for the episode where they get the spa reward .

    Thanks for the spoiler tag. That's the next episode for me. I'm on the camping one right now. The spa rewards scene was great. I think Chrissy came out several times because I thought she had different clothes on. I missed a little though because I was concentrating on my other task.

    We had another snow day so I setup the laptop where I could see and went to work painting. I can't paint worth anything and I hate it so I do have to thank you Cyn for starting this thread. It made the painting bearable.

    I watched part of the first episode today (stayed home because of snow). Never saw a previous season. I live in the midwest and I am not rich and I thought the house was dirty and tacky too! Doesn't putting them somewhere like that make them look even more pathetic and useless? What do these girls parents/boyfriends/whatever do for a living where they make so much money? These are not teenage girls. Why did it take their people so long to decide that they weren't going to support them so lavishly anymore? Or is that just part of the requirement for this "reality" show? And making them wear the same few things over and over for 8 weeks? I don't wear designer clothes and shoes, but I'd have a hard time with that one. I know - it's t.v. I guess I will have to catch more episodes.

    I also have a problem with the fact that most of these women have been completely spoiled since birth and it doesn't APPEAR that the parents have ever tried to cut them off. I don't know if I agree that it is fair to suddenly kick them out and tell them they are truly cut off. How do you expect your princess to make a living when she probably has no more than a high school education and absolutely no skills for the real world? She would struggle to keep a minimum wage job and quite frankly, the parents should have thought about this before. Now, that doesn't mean to continue to spoil them rotten but the parents are getting off completely free as if they did nothing wrong here. Of course, I never finished season 1 so maybe this is addressed later. As for those that have boyfriends, ummm, it says a LOT more about the boyfriend IMO. He can walk away at ANY moment. For those with husbands, the wife probably doesn't care because she knows she can divorce him and take at least half of his money if they didn't sign a prenup.

    Oh man, I totally forgot about Crissy.

    I sincerely hope there were a lot of edits/omissions in her backstory to make her seem more useless, because boy did she fit perfectly into that persona.

    All of the parents were called in for a session to discuss their enabling behaviors. I haven't watched season two yet, but I believe that all of the season one girls had college degrees and most of them, if not all of them, had at least some work experience. It's just that they didn't LIKE working, and most of them wanted to get into show business.

    For the last show, the families showed up to set new boundaries for the future and the girls had to agree to the terms in order to graduate. But in the followup/"where are they now" montage thing, none of them had really moved on much.

    To follow up on Prancer's post, Laura did sit with the parents and asked them point blank how the situation got that far. She had told the girls it was up to their parents if they graduated but she very strongly suggested ground rules to the parents when she was alone with them. Most of the parents included those in their requirements but you could tell that some of them were uncomfortable with the suggestions and it wouldn't take long for backsliding.

    I'm already hazing out on the details but it seemed as if only 2-3 of them really reformed. I do remember that one of them got a job selling diamonds but at least she was supporting herself. The follow ups on the rest sounded as if the girls and their families slid back into bad habits. I know they really aren't girls age wise but I just can't make myself call them women.

    I thought Erica was the next most annoying person after Chrissy left. But when I saw that last episode I realized that poor girl never had a chance. Her parents had her head so screwed up. I feel a little bad for her. Still don't like her but I do have some pity.

    I hope they add "sweeping up ripped-out weave bits" to the chore board.

    The "who threw away my baked potato" chick is now officially known as potato head at my house. I'm pretty sure I'm going to continue disliking her the most.

    You know a fight is bad when the camermen have to run in to stop it.

    Erica is BFF with my friend from college, so I have to see pictures of her on my newsfeed all the time. Still seems as spoiled as always from what I can tell.

    That doesn't sound too surprising. It's looks like she is massively insecure with herself and I bet the spoiled rotten attitude is compensation in some way.

    I loved Lauren's reaction to that fight: "Where I come from if someone tries to take your croquet mallet that's when the shotgun comes out. They're lucky we all weren't in Texas."
