Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this installment of the Real Housewives franchise features some of the wealthy and privileged women of Beverly Hills, California. Like its sister shows, wealth and materialism are major themes here. The show features its trademark catty behavior among the women, as well as plenty of drinking (wine, champagne, cocktails), gambling, and some strong language ("s--t," "f--k", all bleeped).
Is It Any Good?
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.
