We met the cast of the Shahs of Sunset in its first episode, a new series focused on a group of Persian friends who share the same history…they all left Persia and arrived in Beverly Hills as refugees. Their families, like thousands of others, found great success living the California dream and have raised their now-adult children in an environment of entitlement.
I, for one, am just going to love to hate this show…or is it hate to love. I’m not yet sure.
We meet the first real-live, spoiled rotten brat in GG, who is being kept by daddy and who hates ugly people, which is, of course, in her view, most of society. (she hates ants, too, although they are not ugly). Her feelings of entitlement make her one of the most unattractive and ugly people I have ever been introduced to. I pity the poor man she digs her claws into, although I’m sure we’ll eventually get to watch her televised wedding and she’ll make millions from sponsors. She could well be the new definition of mean girl.
Then there’s Asa, GG’s polar opposite, who won’t compromise herself or her values for wealth. She’s somewhat bohemian in her style, which just doesn’t quite sit right with her some of her flashy cast-mates who equate money to class and flaunt it like there’s no tomorrow.
So, imagine my surprise when, in our first episode, it’s Asa who criticizes GG at a dinner outing with all the cast-members by referring to GG’s outfit as being so “H&M“…ouch!, those are fighting words. Nobody, except maybe some on Fifth Avenue, would ever shop at H&M! (not).
Now, see, I would have taken offense to that because of the tone in which it was said and GG does because it’s insulting to the deep pockets of GG’s father, who would rather pay for flashy designer labels, than anything H&M. In fact, GG is so pissed at the comment that she barks down Asa’s throat NEVER, EVER TO SPEAK BADLY OF GG’S FAMILY, especially her father. EVER. (I’m guessing that Asa should have know that GG is being kept by daddy).
I know that one of the sponsor’s of Jessica Simpson & Nicole Ritchie’s new show, Fashion Star, is H&M, so I thought that in honour of GG’s barking, I would include the link to H&M here for your shopping pleasure! TeeHee. here’s the link:
I’m gonna send my kids right over there, since I had never heard of them before GG’s bark. I might save myself some money, since I have some kept daughters, too. If they can stock up on some tanks, tee’s and thongs there, they’ll have more money for handbags, sunglasses and Christian Louboutin’s.
Ah, hahahahahaha! We’ll talk about the rest of the cast later.
