    Tinsley turns out to be the least interesting of her horrible crew. She pales in horribleness next to her friends, J.P. Calderon, an accused purse lifter who throws a glass at a woman and his sworn enemy, rich girl Jules Kirby.
  2. 75
    In her enjoyably ridiculous reality show, she's self-consciously restrained, perhaps trying to project old-fashioned noblesse oblige-even while goosing her Google profile with this project in self-exposure. She just ends up neutralizing herself. The show is dominated instead by a supporting group of rich kids who take the reverse tactic of whole-hog shamelessness.

    The first episode is fairly execrable, but High Society settles down by the second, and we get a clearer--or at least less-boozy--view of Mortimer and her world.
  4. I may just be a cranky old dude, but I am not charmed by this stuff; Spencer Pratt is just a prat to me, and though I wish you well, Tinsley, in your new life, I will be happy to think no more about your friends, starting now.

    Posing aside, Jules and Paul are probably right about lacking a censor button, but even 2,500 miles away, I couldn't find the "off" button fast enough.

    Clearly, the only function of the show is to make Tinsley (who runs a handbag company) look like a valuable, upright member of society. So that's where the bar is set these days?

    High Society is absolutely reprehensible, and everyone at The CW should be totally ashamed for putting it on the air.

    To bad it didn't have any minus rating numbers. It is just REALLY bad. So sick of show about over indulged, moral-less, spoiled, lazy, rude, non talented nobodies. If normal people pulled some of this crap they would go to jail. TAKE IT OFF THE AIR!!! Along with the Kardashians, Levi Johnston, and Jon Gosselin. Expand
