Bravo's New 'Game of Crowns' Docu-Soap Sounds Like an Adult 'Toddlers & Tiaras'
There are many reasons to love Bravo. They've introduced us to such amazing characters as NeNe Leakes, Jeff from Princess: Long Island, the Giudices, and Tom Colicchio. Most of those people are closer to me than family, so it's always exciting to learn that there might be another amazing person waiting to become my new best friend. Enter Bravo's new docu-soap, Game of Crowns . The show doesn't have a premiere date yet, but I'm already making room for its cast at m'dinner table.
Here's the scoop: the new show will follow six women on the pageant circuit. The press release says that the ladies' " lives revolve around glamour, perfection and winning at any cost— even if it means competing against their own teenage daughters … In this world of boobs, Botox and butt glue, the women pay top dollar for perfection at any price."
It sounds like the Queen of Versailles meets Toddlers & Tiaras, and frankly, I don't know what took them so long to come up with this diamond of a plot line. Instead of 3-year-olds in tutus crying into their go-go juice, we'll see 30-year-olds in tutus crying into their Pinot. Throw in some doting men who are obsessed with these women and call in Emeril Lagasse because BAM: that is a recipe for greatness.
HBO might have a problem with Bravo calling their show Game of Crowns, so we'll see how that pans out. Hard to believe that one of the top-rated, most-celebrated drams on TV wouldn't want to be associated with a program that highlights the most absurd, materialistic sect of society, but hey, life can't all be wizards and dragons and sweet, sweet death scenes.
Or can it? Looking at you, Game of Crowns.
