The Real Housewives aren’t the only ones taking over Beverly Hills. E! Television expands its reality show roster with #RichKids of Beverly Hills, a series inspired by the hugely popular Instagram page “Rich Kids of Instagram,” follows five twenty-somethings as they live the lavish life, buying things they don’t need and using their parents money to do so.
While this may seem another throw away reality snobfest, it will be interesting to see Magic Johnson’s son, EJ, on the small screen as he makes several guest appearances throughout the first season.
Check out a full description of the series and watch a video preview below.
“The show is loosely inspired by the popular Tumblr page “Rich Kids of Instagram“, where star Dorothy Wang was first discovered by casting directors. Now she and best friend Morgan Stewart are welcoming E! viewers into their ridiculously lavish and spoiled lifestyle. Dorothy’s family is worth billions, so she is happily ‘funemployed’ right now. Actually Brendan, Morgan’s boyfriend, is the only one with a legitimate full time job at a top real estate firm (sorry Morgan, blogging doesn’t count). Sure, Roxy is a freelance interior designer, but with her parents threatening to cut her off, she may need to find something a little more stable. Singer/songwriter and “boy crazy” Jonny rounds out the cast while other friends, including Magic Johnson’s son E.J., make appearances throughout the eight-episode season.”
