Being fans of scripted television, we've been generally unimpressed by reality television shows. We recognize the entertainment value and cultural impact of shows like American Idol, and Morgan Spurlock's 30 Days has given some cred to the genre. We'd also totally watch MILF Island. All that being said, we can't understand the appeal of shows devoted simply to the lives of rich people like Paris Hilton, Nicole Richie or, especially, Kim Kardashian. Why do we care? To quote Variety: "Once you get past Kim's prominently displayed assets, there's not much of a show here, and no discernible premise." At least with the 1040 hp Rolls there's some go accompanying the show, though it's not the direction Armand Bengle would have taken:

I dig the idea, but the wheels and blower are awfully... how should I say it? Nouveau riche. A better choice would have been a pair of turbos tucked under the stock hood and a set of custom billet wheels carved to look like the original Rolls wheel covers.

THAT kind of Rolls would say "I like speed, and I built a hot-rod Rolls with the money I inherited from my family, which traces its bloodline back to William the Conqueror. Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go meet my friend Lord March and we're going to do donuts up the driveway at Goodwood." THIS kind of Rolls says "I got my money from oil, and I'm really hoping that this hot-rod Rolls impresses my ideal woman, Kim Kardashian. Now, if you'll excuse me, I have to go get my hair highlighted."


Yeah, but it looks nice from the rear. Give it a television show. Seacrest out! [Photo - Getty Images]

Geez, and I thought the Rolls had a lot of junk in the trunk.

Congrats Armand Bengle!
