[and by rich I mean "surrounded by riches" - Warren Buffet's had the same damn suit for 10 years, I can agree with those kind of riches.)

Please tell me you saw the redonk 60,000 sq ft house on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills last night? They showed his house last year, briefly, and it's beyond palatial. You see his home and see a palace in Dubai and sneer. DAMN.

Basically, the recap is up, and I am having way to much fun with them, I can't help it.

Excerpt:

Now, I’ve had spa days with the gals, and it’s usually two or three of us hitting the local day spa for a massage, facial, and maybe a mani-pedi. This is Beverly Hills, you freaking hicks, so let’s step it up, okay?

Adrienne has her own spa in her house. Before you think that means a mud room converted into a place with a Hammecher-Schlemmer massage table jammed in by the stand-alone sink, it entails:

  • a spray tan booth
  • lasers
  • hydrofacial machines
  • 2 manicurists on staff as well as
  • 3 masseuses
  • 2 aestheticians
  • 3 waiters
  • and Chef Bernie

You know. Your typical run of the mill “in home spa.” Now go stand in your bathroom and look at those “spa towels” you bought yourself and your bamboo accessories for soaps and scrubies and the inflatable pillow for the bathtub and the bamboo and chrome “table” for your bathtub that holds a glass of wine and realize that you will never have this. Shame on you for trying.

...........

I have no polite response to that. LOL I'd be ashamed of myself if I had all that, and I have a very nice house as it is.

OH MY GOD, FM, IT WAS RIDICULOUS.

To be fair, half of the women there found it over the top, but still. IT EXISTS.

And everyone had a silk robe and custom "spa shoes" made for each of them, too. But the best, is that amongst all of this luxury ($2000 bottles of champagne, hand crafted cheese made from sheep that live on foie gras, who knows) there was a FROYO MACHINE. AND SPRINKLES. I laughed so hard when I saw that. I mean, hey, I like frozen yogurt but... Ahahahahahaha!!!!

A FROYO MACHINE? OMG, was there a nacho machine next to it with that icky plastic nacho cheese? And maybe a spinning rack of soft pretzels? OH OH AND A COTTON CANDY MACHINE???

I just... I could have all the money in the world and not spend it on that stuff.

Of course, they'd probably be just as baffled by my theoretical art and book collection and donations to charity, so...

NACHO FOUNTAIN!!! I just laid my head back on my chair and shook with laughter, btw.

I think we all can agree that it doesn't get classier than the popcorn machine you can win on The Price Is Right.

Yeah, me, too. I am NOT interested in acquiring things. Now. Land for gardens? Hell to the yeah. (I will say that all these women do in their spare time - when they're not shopping or pampering themselves - is charity events. That's actually something I like on the show.) BUT CLEARLY WE ARE SUPERIOR, I mean, please.

We are going to have the best time ever in New York and may possibly be kicked out of places for laughing too much.

Well, there's charity work because it looks good and gets you social status points, and there's charity work because you believe in it. On the other RHW franchises there's clearly some of both.

BUT YES WE ARE SUPERIOR.

I can't help it. Waste like that makes me understand the French Revolution a lot better.

Oh, they wouldn't see it as waste, because it gets used. Kinda. (I bet Adrienne is the kind that packs up the leftovers - excuse me, gets the help to pack up the leftovers - and sends them home with the maids.)

THIS SHOW IS CRAY CRAY.

I sure hope she doesn't hire all those people full time because if she is, I kind of feel bad for them. How boring to just sit and wait for her!

What a waste of money! I also feel bad for any kids they might have. Growing up like that, they can't have any idea what it's like in the real world. :/

oh, it's like the guy that does Oprah's hair - you pay them a salary to drop what they're doing and come to you for x amount of time.

They ALL have kids. Interestingly enough, the woman that lives across the street from Spa Lady has an absolutely lovely daughter. (Her mother is far more down to earth. Um, she has a fleet of Bentley's. But she's approachable? LOL.)

Real Housewives of Beverly Hills

The first time we saw a preview for that show, Manly opined: "Those women are first against the wall when the revolution comes."

Oh, they are so decadent. It's like real life Dynasty, though, which I loved.

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.
