Very boring, grating and obnoxious. None of the characters are that interesting and none of the situations are really entertaining to watch. They do nothing but argue and attack each other, and it gets old FAST. If you want your kids to learn how to be their most irritating selves, plop them down in front of a showing of this.

Too much consumerism

Our review:
Parents say (5 ):
Kids say (9 ):

Like its predecessors, much of the show's focus is on how much these women have and how well they live. While some of these women pursue business ventures and have a strong work ethic, most of them are also married to very wealthy men. However, they are all pretty savvy when it comes to understanding that their status in Beverly Hills can change in an instant.

The show features its fair share of catty behavior, salty language, and obnoxiously luxurious lifestyles. The sibling rivalry between the Richards sisters, and the conversations about the Grammer's deteriorating marriage, also create some heated exchanges and some awkward voyeuristic moments. Bottom line? This show offers more of the same old Housewives drama, which means that franchise fans won't be disappointed.
