If you missed last week's first-ever episode of Bravo's new series Ladies of London, you missed a delicious treat. If you are me, you watched it, you loved it, and you came back for more tonight. Verily, not one of us came away disappointed. I think if Henry James were not a-molderin' in the grave, even he would proclaim this show to be the panacea to his reality craving.
To catch you up to speed -- the show is about London society. It follows some Brits who are very much in the scene and some American Ex-Pats who are desperately trying to crawl their way to the top, one bad hat at a time. Tonight they were all preparing to go to the Serpentine, an annual must-attend party for the city's who's who.
Noelle Reno was desperate to attend. So desperate she bought a dress, went and got her hair done, and dragged her boyfriend to a pre-party to shame him for not being able to get her tickets. Because that is what bitchy, gold-diggers do. #Beccaiskeepingitrealyo.
Noelle is dating Scot Young -- who is a rogue and a half. He's embroiled in loads of scandal about his divorce, his criminal activities, and a world of financial woes. But Noelle got her hooks in him before that all happened, and now she's got to stand by her man or else be revealed for the material-minded hussy that she is.
I sound like I'm being exceptionally harsh. That's because I just had to watch a woman sneer at a luxury apartment rental that her sugar daddy was going to happily rent for her, and then watch her shake him off when the offer of a free ticket to this party came up. So yeah, I'm being harsh, but with good reason. Right now everyone seems to just sort of admire Noelle's hustle. How long before she pisses everyone else off?
Do you think Noelle really loves Scott?
