Rich Kids Of Instagram Leads To Reality Show Of Super Rich Gen-Y Kids In Beverly Hills
The stars of Rich Kids of Instagram, the Tumblr that chronicles the lavish lifestyles of super wealthy 20-somethings, will soon be the subjects of a new reality TV show.
Deadline reports that E! is in the process of developing “Rich Kids of Beverly Hills,” which will reportedly follow a group of rich young adults as they sail through exotic destinations on their yachts, lounge around their huge mansions and drive luxury sports cars.
Though some of the show’s stars have been featured in the blog, a spokesperson for Rich Kids of Instagram told the Atlantic that Rich Kids of Beverly Hills is in fact “not associated” with the Tumblr.
Many of the Rich Kids of Instagram have famous parents and relatives. Donald Trump’s 19-year-old daughter Tiffany can be seen on the blog, often showing off the family’s private jet.
Paris Hilton’s younger brother Barron has been featured as well, usually strolling on the beach amid a bevvy of blonde bombshells.
Other photographed celebrity offspring include Mitt Romney’s granddaughter Allie and Peter Brant II, the son of model/actress Stephanie Seymour.
The blog was launched last year with the tagline: “They have more money than you and this is what they do.”
One of the most recent posts shows a young man dressed in a leather outfit, leaning against a black sports car, surrounded by shopping bags from high-end designer brands.
The caption reads: “Great couple of days in Stockholm with a lot of shopping. We like that s***! Next up: Falkenberg.”
Some of the photographed stars, however, have actually denounced the blog because they don’t want to feel ashamed of their extravagance, nor do they want their possessions to be the sole representations of who they are.
In July of 2012, 19-year-old Annabel Schwartz was featured on the blog as she vacationed in St. Tropez. She told “Good Morning America” that, while she obviously enjoys her wealth very much, her “friends and I don’t want to be associated with this. . . This is very embarrassing.”
“I don’t want to be represented by my money and my vacation experiences,” she added.
