OMG – Gasmii! Did you know that there’s a hip, hot restaurant in West Hollywood serviced by pretty people who are all dying to be the next thing in show business?
Of course you did. There are 1258 of them. I work at one. But Sur is the only one run by a Real Housewife, so Sur is the only one with its own TV show. Right now, at least. There was a show about the Saddle Ranch a few years ago, but after the first season the health department found herpes in the deep fryer, so they shut down production indefinitely. You can still eat there, though!
You probably watched a bit of “Vanderpump Rules” if you watched the two-hour bait and switch episode of RHOBH that was its lead-in on Monday night. P.S. I was greatly amused by the amount of ire that dirty trick inspired in y’all. Reminded me of the time “Grey’s Anatomy” did that with “Private Practice,” when I had sworn not to watch a damn minute of the show that stole my Addison. Still. Pissed.
BH ended with Brandi and Scheana’s conversation/confrontation, and instead of following Brandi out of the front door, we followed Scheana out the back and transitioned seamlessly into spinoff land. “Vanderpump Rules” (which could refer to Lisa Vanderpump ruling or Lisa Vanderpump’s Rules for Getting Laid but not Fired at Work) begins with a montage of the restaurant at night and all the pretty people hard at work. Lisa VOs that she and Ken have two restaurants in America – Villa Blanca, “where you take your wife,” and Sur, “where you take your mistress.” I’m starting to see why Lisa’s so adept at straddling the fence supporting both Brandi and Scheana. Someone’s got some fond memories of adultery in their past…
Lisa interviews that she staffs personalities at Sur, not necessarily the best servers. Really? Because there are two guys on this show that I can barely tell apart, so they need to work on their “character” a bit beyond “brunette boy bartender named Tom S.” Cue credits!
After the credits, or the 30-second music video with lots of wind machines the show starts again. One of the servers, Stassi, interviews that everyone who works at Sur wants to be in the entertainment business. I’m already rolling my eyes at how little that statement needed to be uttered when she says, “all the other servers in Hollywood just want to be waiters at Sur.” My eyes hurt now, y’all. I think I pulled a muscle. FYI, all the servers in “Hollywood” want to be waiters at The Grill. For those of you not in the know (because you have, like, real jobs), The Grill is the triple threat of restaurant jobs – steakhouse, Beverly Hills, power lunches.
Before I can start to hate Stassi too much, Kristen pipes up letting us know that she’s SORRY, all the servers at Sur are really hot! Why are you so sorry Kristen?
Is it because you know in your heart that you’re being misleading?
