High Society?


I admit I was intrigued when I heard that Tinsley Mortimer was filming a reality show last year. She has been in the magazines and Page Six for a long time and I knew her history. One gossip blog, Park Avenue Peerage, seemed to be devoted to her every movement. She came to our Neiman's a year ago promoting her Tinsley Pink lipstick for Christian Dior. She was the tiniest thing, always dressed in pink and usually had her arm linked to her handsome husband Topper...Fast forward a year or two and she is divorced, or getting divorced and hanging around some questionable characters. The show itself is entertaining and I am still watching it but wow..I have some comments....

First, she needs some vocal coaching..her voice is so boring and her monologues are painful to listen to. She should watch any of the RHONY for inspiration on that front.

Second, Jules Kirby..what a TRAIN WRECK. Not only is she gross to look at, her behavior is appalling. She skipped the premiere because she didn't like how she was edited?? Sorry, that is not editing..she has said some really awful things and she acts disgusting.

Third, Dale Mercer...does she not know how ridiculous she looks chasing after her daughter refusing to believe she has really left Topper? Tonight's episode was so painful..fun to watch in Newport..but it is all so set up and looks rehearsed. Tinsley's Mom is crazy. The chasing around at the Plaza two weeks ago was embarassing to watch.

Paul..oh Paul..his voice is so annoying and affected to listen to. He is the wild card of the show for me..never know what is going to come out of his mouth and what he is going to do. Tonight's episode was a little shocking for prime time television, even on the CW, that they showed him and his boyfriend all over each other.

Saving the most annoying for last, Devorah Rose..horrible, horrible, horrible. I read yesterday that she is angling for her own show. Please promise me that you won't watch it. She is so weird and full of herself. I don't know why she is even on the show.


The only normal one is her sister Dabney. She seems cool and is now rid of Jules. I think they should give her more air time.

I am a little shocked that Tinsley is allowing herself to be on this show without some creative control to make her and her family look not so C-R-A-Z-Y. And, to call the show High Society is laughable at this point. I fear for Mrs. Mercer's social standing in Richmond, Virginia when she gets back there..they might not let her back in the scene since she has lowered herself to such disastrous standards!

Check out High Society on the CW Wednesdays at 9:30 pm.

Oh thank God I'm not the only one who finds Devorah painful to watch. First of all, who is she? Second, she can't possibly come from "high society" when she shows up at a charity event and feels the need to tell everyone that she's wearing $3M in diamonds and has a security guard. Can we say tacky?

I caught part of an episode one night and I, too, was appalled at Jules Kirby. Seriously, no redeeming qualities whatsoever. I recall reading about Tinsley right after her wedding and she seemed like a publicity hound then, much to the chagrin of her then-hubby. Looks like that didn't work in her favor on the marriage front.

The day Mrs. Mercer allowed herself to be filmed is the day she ruined her standing. This is Virginia. We're still very old school here.
Same for D.C. They've had to stage 'event's because noone will allow cameras in their events, businesses, etc. At this point I'm not sure there is going to be a Real Housewives of DC.

I know, I'm almost ashamed to admit I watch this one. That Jules girl is unbelievable! XXOO

Jules said...

I have been watching this show and couldn’t agree more with all of your comments, especially about Jules Kirby. The way she has been acting to employees at the hotel and everyone else is disgusting. The scenes this week on Newport were pretty, but seemed very fake.

I remember Devorah Rose being on that NYC Prep show. She will do anything for her 15 minutes.

I had only seen part of one other episode, and caught this week's on a whim. It caught my eye when "up next," Tinsley was headed to Newport...hadn't heard anything about the Page Six princess being here- is she really chairing the PSNC gala this summer?

OMG! I luv this show! I think I could be BFF's with Tinsley but not Devorah. She's just gross. Please post about other shows too!!! Do you think there will ever be a Real House Wives of Miami?
