I want that time from my life back!

I would rather get a root canal and a colon oscopoy at the same time then watch more of this show.

Is It Any Good?

If your perception of Richie begins and ends with a vision of her as an eye-rolling twentysomething paired with Paris Hilton on The Simple Life, you may be surprised at the thirtysomething Richie who quickly emerges as the star of her own show. She's a sly, charming sweetheart who's completely in on the joke of her whole life as a tabloid staple and troublemaking Los Angeles rich kid. In priceless "behind the scenes" interviews, she mocks herself relentlessly: "I'm just saying what's on my mind; I can't help it if my mind is mind-ier than other people's minds." Nor does she spare herself when in the company of loved ones: Summing up the results of parallel-parking lessons from her dad, she gloats, "I was really good at that. You would never know I have two DUIs."

Richie also emerges as something of a fixer/live wire among her group of compatriots, the type to throw baby showers, initiate family get-togethers, and help her best friend write her online dating profile. "Race?" Richie muses, typing on her phone and examining her friend's face critically. "You're white. White as a toilet." Later, Richie meets a date for a drink on the pretext of telling him her friend isn't really interested in him. She orders red wine and tells him, deadpan: "I'm very classy." Curiously enough, Ms. Richie, despite your jokes about poop, you are.
