‘Reese’ Wrangles Rich Kids Into Reality Show

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – What is it about Fox sitcom stars and reality shows?

First, Ashton Kutcher created Beauty And The Geek and now Malcolm In The Middle’s Justin Berfield is also a budding reality show mogul, whose first show, Filthy Rich: Cattle Drive, debuts Sunday (Aug. 7) on E! Entertainment Television.

The show pits 10 kids of famous parents on a cattle drive and Berfield says he came up with the idea because he’s grown up with a lot of celebrity offspring and is amazed to think about what it’s like “being destined to grow up in a life most people will never know.”

For instance, Berfield has known cast member, Haley Giraldo – Pat Benatar’s daughter – for years and is amazed how much she didn’t know about basic living because she had never had to take responsibility for things.

But there aren’t as many sheltered kids of famous rich people as you’d think. Berfield says he spent months casting the show but could find only 30 possible participants.
