In the second installment to the show the girls travel from Florida to Beverly Hills and along the way they take numerous jobs in exchange for money. The third season of the show brings the girls to a bus where they travel in upper Manhattan and take on jobs as interns.

Rich spoiled brats...with NO CLASS
11 December 2003 | by jfm3See all my reviews

That's right NO CLASS! ...Nicole retorts to a few friends of the family " So do you guys like hang out at Wal-Mart?" ......is that not rude or what. Paris says "What is Wal-Mart? Do they sell like wall stuff or something?" (giggles). Buy some brains Paris,and maybe a little tact. ......You would think that Paris had some charm school behind her. She's totally rude and obnoxious. Paris and Nicole are very immature as well...They act like 14 year old little brats with attitudes..almost like "stoner chicks" but better dressed...not debutants. It just goes to show you can have all the money in the world..but you can't you buy class and they have NONE!!! OK maybe they never had to work hard physically but the whining and lack of effort is really not what I call entertaining. Shame on their parents for not bringing them up to be "ladylike".... Most millionaires and billionaires are expected to bring up their daughters to be sophisticated,charming,gracious and reserved....not spoiled,rude,trashy 'valley-girl' types. But hey it's a free country and if rich people want to bring up their kids like that...then so be it...WAY TO GO...morons!
