Fashionista Ariel Stein Develops A Bath Ta Robe

Miami Social residential style queen Ariel Stein has turned into a fashion designer, and he has launched a Bath Ta Robe. Yes you guessed it is a robe made from a bath towel.

Quite hilarious really considering he thought he was the arbiter of style.

Miami Social – I Doubt It Will Get Renewed

Hardy_Hill_Pachi_Lake

Miami Social finished tonight in Australia, and I really enjoyed the series, if you can call six episodes a series. But I doubt Bravo TV will be commissioning anymore .

It was entertaining in a Ohmigod are there really people that vacuous out there? Also there was barely any story line, so I don’t know where they would go with the plot line.

Salon sums up the show nicely:
Although it’s easy to mistake Miami Social for part of the problem, the show actually performs an important service to the public by revealing just how unspeakably dull the life of the club-hopping socialite actually is. Sure, stretching ugly tops over your enormous fake tits and spending way too much money at awful, overpriced night spots might sound like living the dream, but get to know these overly bronzed, gel-haired, empty-eyed souls a little better, and you’ll no longer spend your afternoons at work (the way we all do) daydreaming about fishing your bra out of a South Beach trash can at 4 in the morning. Despite its strenuous attempts to glamorize the lives of these young, wealthy, ultra-beautiful denizens of Miami’s hottest circles, Miami Social reveals them to be horribly mundane.

George  who goes out with the volotile Lina who kind off disappears periodically without really telling him where she is. I mean George she works for a real estate developer, what does she do for him? Are you sure she is not working at Hooters?

It took Georges mum all of two seconds to realise the relationship was completely unhealthy, and yes they are still together.

Also Hardy has broken up with Trixia his girlfriend of six years and has married Pachi Lake (photo of the two of them above).

Miami Social – Most Vacuous Reality TV Cast Ever?

MiamiSocial_Artsheet.pdf (page 1 of 2).jpg

Miami Social premiered on Arena TV last night and it must be the most unlikeable cast ever to be shown on reality TV. Please note I have never seen Rock of Love  so that could possibly also have dibs on that title.

On the plus side the show did make me feel like I was a well rounded individual.

Basically most of the cast were egocentric, superficial, and lacked any intellectual depth at all.

We had Ariel Stein who is both a narcissist and a misogynist, who is not gay but like boy or girls as long as they are beautiful. In a funny scene when he was casting for a promotional event he grabs a female model and asks her if they have ever made out – he fails to notice that she is totally repulsed by the idea. Though I did learn from Ariel that in Miami girls need to  have big breasts, unlike New York chicks. Who said reality TV is not educational?

Then there is George the “former playboy” whose girlfriend Lina who is Russian is caught out in a lie. She travels a lot for work for a real estate developer. She said she was going to New York, but was really “entertaining clients” on a yacht in St Barts.  Ok you do the maths on that one.

George also uses his ex-wife Sorah as an emotional crutch.

Katrina, who apparently was on The Apprentice, is currently divorcing her childhood sweetheart Ben, as she cannot give him the emotional support he requires as she is a work alcoholic.

Michael is gay and appears to not do anything at all except gripe about not meeting anyone and getting crushes on his personal trainer.

There is also Maria the bi-sexual who is sending her 13 year old daughter to boarding school in Switzland and not for the first time. She feels the times they have together is more meaningful when they don’t see each other as much.

Lastly there is Hardy a nightclub promoter, who has a girlfriend Trixia who says she is in her early ’30’s but she actually looks 45.  Which brings me to my last point they all pride themselves on being the body beautiful, but they are all really harsh and ugly and look year’s older then they really are.

And yes I am addicted to the show already. For a funny overview of the show and its cast check out this Miami New Times blog post.

Miami Social is on Arena on Thursday nights at 8.30pm.
