Whenever I watch this show, and I've only seen it on DVD, I can't help but picture each of these cast members burning in Hell, which is odd, because I don't particularly believe in Hell, but surely in the universe there is SOME form of punishment awaiting such vain, shallow, covetous, beauty-obsessed, greedy life forms, right? OK, I confess, this series is peculiarly watchable, even enjoyable, but it's those things in spite of rather than because of the cast members, who are unpleasant to the last. Breasts so inflated with saline they surely require back braces to support them? Faces so immobile with injected toxins ("I'm always gonna look 32...") that to watch one of them try to weep is to witness a statue begin to crumble? I'll take my future wrinkles any day!

Somewhere around episode five it pierced my brain to wonder how someone becomes like these monstrous women. They were once babies, innocent children, youngsters with hopes and dreams and (one presumes) personalities. Now they lack souls and just embody a limitless black hole of cosmetically-augmented avarice. I don't know if this series is shown around the world but if it is then no wonder so many people elsewhere have such a poor impression of Americans. Well, attention world, we're not all like this. Some of us don't get Botox and only have experiences of botulism after eating at truck stops!

This franchise is amazing. A group of women, either rich or living as though they are, get together and talk about each other, form cliques, bicker, fight and generally behave in the way that normal people do... when they're in junior high, that is. Status is everything to them- without it their lives would be meaningless. They gladly let cameras follow them around and see how shallow and foolish they are. As long as they are on TV, it's all good. The series reveals in all its ghastly detail the fact that it's possible to be wealthy and yet completely emptyheaded.

Why two stars instead of one? Because I have to give credit to whichever genius thought up the idea. It has spawned numerous spin-offs, each with equally vacuous participants and each eagerly followed every week by the viewing public. My wife, who is intelligent, well-read, empathetic (in fact everything these women are not) loves it. This might be the most successful cable franchise ever, and it's based on a bunch of bimbos whose lives are bounded by social 'occasions' and plastic surgery. They have now been immortalised on DVD, no doubt to their complete satisfaction.

Buy this if you want to see a group of people to whom you can feel superior.

What really makes me angry about this show are the kids! They live in multi-million dollar homes, have everything anyone could possibly want, totally funded by their parents.....except ambition, the most valuable asset they could give their children, not free BMWs!

Easy living kills all ambition in rich kids. Don't think so? Just look at the Ozzie Osbourne spawn! They have the funds and chance to become anything of value in life such as doctors and other high paying professions, but just become slugs and drones, parasites living off their parents well into their young adult years (Tamra are you listening? Kick the young bloodsucker OUT!)

And the women, OH, where to start.

I did like Vikki, the insurance company owner, at least she works for her money, not marrying it. But in Season 2 her huge mouth which is constantly going started to grate real bad. We have dubbed her "La Pie Hola Grande" and every time I think of her I see the gaping, yapping mouth.

JO: A supposedly college degreed woman who can't quite read the instructions on the back of a fast food package, can't sing, wants to sing, but does not know music related terms, has no interest in learning. Her speaking voice peeled paint. I don't think she'd actually make it through the first round of American Idol.She stated on the show, she HATES responsibility. Does not want to raise her rich ex-boyfriend's kids, would rather spend, spend, spend than work, stay out all night, and pretty damned young to be such a serious boozer! She's no doubt searching for her next sugar daddy.

JEANA: A successful working lady with disasterously raised children!

This collection is 5 hours long. It is exactly like the old arcade game with the claw that you use to get that toy in the bin. It almost works and you almost get it till it falls. Another fifty cents. These shows are what the Brits call a 'lorry load' where they just dump whatever into the camera field and hope it's entertaining. What you get, then, is some humour, some drama, a lot of bitching (the best part), some old-fashioned gossip, and even some PG13 sexiness. The problem is that there IS a camera and it isn't invisible or hidden. How sincerely happy, sad, funny, or sexy could YOU get with a lens recording it for the nation? Yes, I thought so.

This is strictly for 'Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman' fans, if you know that reference...

If you enjoy spying on people or like soap operas, then grab this up. If not, save your money and get real (i.e. scripted) entertainment...
