Trash TV: Keeping up with the #Rich Kids of Beverly Hills

The Osbournes and the Kardashians will someday have to face a TMZ-esque trial for their crimes against humanity.

It's only fair, because for every one guilty pleasure show worth watching, comes countless other programs in its trail -- with even more despicable characters than Honey Boo Boo's family tree.

Yeah, we're looking at you Bravo, MTV, VH1, Oxygen and the main culprit of them all -- E! Entertainment.

Humble members of the 99 percent, we introduce to you #Rich Kids of Beverly Hills, premiering January 19 on E! Entertainment.

It should be E! for enema, because that's what you'll need in order to rid yourselves of the waste that is most assuredly this show. To be fair, we're only judging by the show's trailer, but how can any of us be expected to endear ourselves to entitled adults debating what makes you most rich: Washing your hair with Dom Perignon or Cristal?

Seriously? How about neither. We'll choose Herbal Essences. It's only $3.99 and it's better to smell like raspberries than old champagne.

In any case, judge for yourselves, as we're sure many of you will tune in anyway. But before you do, meet the overpriced cast:

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
