The Loathsome Life of...

What is the point of VH1's The Fabulous Life of... series? Is it just to make me hate celebrities? I just saw The Fabulous Life of Hollywood's It Girls, and the shameful excesses of talentless drones like Paris Hilton, Kelly Osbourne and Hilary Duff, not to mention talented but spoiled/obnoxious starlets like Scarlett Johannsen and Lindsay Lohan... Oh, and the Olsen twins were there too. Where was I?

Right, talking about how the show verged on making me feel physically nauseous. Is the show's fawning tone supposed to be ironic? Is the object to turn us against the obscenely privileged stars we apparently worship?
