Odd Mom Out: “Brooklandia” Review - AVClub

AVClub: Based on creator and star Jill Kargman’s successful novel Momzillas, Bravo’s second scripted drama, Odd Mom Out, is a tale as old as time: Author writes book exposing the bad behavior of the wealthy elite while simultaneously enabling readers to feel morally superior and live vicariously through all of the soapy, sordid details. This approach may seem au courant since the “anthropological,” and possibly slightly fictional memoir, Primates of Park Avenue, is receiving so much press for similarly targeting the ugly habits of Upper East Side mothers, but it should really seem familiar more than anything else. Exposés of the UES are a dime a dozen, as Alessandra Stanley points out in her review where she traces these books’ roots all the way back to 1914.

The story is too old to be commented.
