E! has given us many gifts in life—an obvious example being the Kardashian family. But before the Kardashians, they were killing it with lots of bizarre reality shows like Pretty Wild and of course, Filthy Rich: Cattle Drive.
The concept was ripped straight from Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie on The Simple Life, but I don’t blame E!. Viewers loved reality shows about rich people being obnoxiously rich circa 2005-07, right before the crash made it even tackier. Filthy Rich took a bunch of kids born of famous people and made them work on a cattle ranch in Colorado. Horrors!
Now, on to the stars! Kourtney Kardashian is the most notable child-of included, back when she still had to be introduced as “the daughter of OJ Simpson’s lawyer Robert Kardashian.” She’s the same ol’ Kourt, but brattier.
Her sister Kim’s bestie Brittny Gastineau was also present, which was a bit of a down grade after already having her own reality show, Gastineau Girls. Then there’s Ecuadorian socialite Fabian Basabe, who was really a Thing in New York and everywhere on TV around 2006 and then disappeared from life.
