As if following the exploits of rich media parasites the Kardashians and "Real Housewives" isn't enough, E! is now bringing us another reality show about the ridiculously wealthy, Rich Kids of Beverly Hills.

The show, which will debut in 2014, follows five 20-somethings who have more money than they know what to do with and overshare about it on Twitter and Instagram. One is also a blogger on (Loubs = Louboutins, of course.) According to The Hollywood Reporter, the show is not related to the "Rich Kids of Instagram."

With rumors that Keeping Up With the Kardashians is on its last legs, E! needs another set of "real" people living out scripted dramas.

"These kids are larger than life personalities who are charismatic, shockingly wealthy and born into lifestyles that are outrageously spectacular," said E!'s programming and development executive vice president, Jeff Olde, in a statement, according to TheWrap.

Here are some details from their nauseating E! cast bios:

  • Dorothy Wang, 25, is the "Funemployed!" daughter of a billionaire business mogul who "earned her rightful place in social media royalty by showcasing her luxurious life on Instagram."
  • Morgan Stewart, 25, is the "sexy wild child of Beverly Hills infamous for her flirty ways, unfiltered humor and unpredictable nights out with her friends." She blogs about things like her "asshole injury" on
  • Jonny Drubel, 25, is a "boy crazy" singer/songwriter who is "too classy to say" what his family's net worth is. He is "nothing short of dramatic and is an emotional rollercoaster, but always a good time (if he likes you)."
