Money lessons from ‘You’re Cut Off’

Emily Crone

This summer, VH1 aired a new reality show called “You’re Cut Off.” It starred nine rich and spoiled ladies who go through “princess rehab” to teach them how to be responsible and value their families’ money that they spend so carelessly.

At first, the princesses were told that they were going to be on a reality show called “The Good Life” all about their exorbitant lifestyles. The clips from this segment is hilarious–one girl is in a hot tub with nice champagne being poured down her mouth who later brags about her hundreds of thousands of dollars of credit limit spread across multiple cards. Another is a girl getting into a private car in New York while swathed in a massive fur coat. Another getting Botox injections, while another shows off her four luxury cars.
