A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this TV show.

Positive Messages

The focus is on looking good, having fun, and spending money, without any visible concern for weightier issues.

Positive Role Models & Representations

The cast appears narcissistic, superficial, and extremely privileged.

Violence

Arguments occasionally break out within the gang and sometimes lead to yelling and insults. 

Sex

Lots of sexy outfits and skimpy bikinis. Morgan Stewart's blog is named "Boobs and Loubs." Tampons, fetishes, and other issues are discussed.

Language

Words such as "bitch" are audible; curses such as "s--t," "c--t," and "f--k" are bleeped. 

Consumerism

Dorothy Wang considers herself an Instagram celebrity. Lots of high-end labels such as Hermes, Birkin, Chanel, Louboutin, and Rodeo Drive stores such as Barneys New York are prominently featured. High-end cars such as Mercedes-Benz and Bentley; Sanrio Hello Kitty products; and Apple products are visible. 

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

There's endless drinking (wine, hard liquor, and expensive champagne). Wang and Stewart are against arriving at (or leaving) parties sober. 

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that #RichKids of Beverly Hills is a reality series featuring a cast of twentysomethings living the life of wealth and privilege in which they've been brought up. It contains lots of strong language with the stronger stuff bleeped, catty arguing, some innuendo and sexual references, and lots and lots of drinking. There's also lots of luxury brands featured, as well as an obsession with material goods and superficial concerns.

Boring, but I can't stop watching.

This show represents almost everything I hate about Beverly Hills, but for some reason I watch every episode... I guess some of the cast members, like Morgan an... Continue reading

What's the story?

#RICHKIDS OF BEVERLY HILLS is a reality series starring a group of rich twentysomethings living in Beverly Hills, Calif. It stars Dorothy Wang and Morgan Stewart, best friends who enjoy spending their parents' money and finding different ways to occupy their time in style. Often joining them is Dorothy's friend Jonny Drubel, Morgan's longtime friend Roxy Sowlaty, and boyfriend and real-estate mogul Brendan Fitzpatrick. Occasionally joining them is Dorothy's friend E.J., the son of former NBA player Magic Johnson. Staying fabulous isn't easy, but these two women are determined to continue enjoying the Beverly Hills lifestyle.

Is it any good?

From discussions about breast size to the latest designer items the cast members want to buy, much of the content of this voyeuristic show is dedicated to watching women spend money and socializing with their financially privileged peers. But in-between these activities are efforts to organize charitable events and, on occasion, half-hearted attempts to work at a legitimate job and build a career. 

The cast isn't completely disconnected from the rest of the world and are fully aware they're living a lifestyle that most people can only dream about. But it's not easy to take them seriously. Meanwhile, outside of being wealthy, it's unclear why they're on a reality show. There's not much here, but viewers who like this sort of thing may find it mildly entertaining. 

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about the reasons people are featured on reality series. Is it their unique personal experiences? Their celebrity status? Their personalities? Do you think reality-show cast members behave on camera the same way they would in their everyday lives

  • How are viewers supposed to react to the rich kids? Are we supposed to like them or not? Do you think they care how they're perceived?

  • What kinds of values do these kids express? Are they values you and your family share?
