The Rich Are Awful

Still reading Watch Me.

Self has this theory that the rich are awful people. Why? Because they’re surrounded by enablers and sycophants.

Self is in no way letting poor folk off the hook. She’s met awful, poor people as well. Awfulness comes in every demographic! But right now, she’s reading about rich people. Because this is Anjelica Huston’s memoir of the rich and the beautiful.

In Watch Me (Chapter xx, self forgets), Huston’s in Cannes. She’s on a yacht owned by Sam Spiegel. Parties are fabulous, the yacht interiors are “tasteful beige and maritime navy blue,” and everyone throws tantrums. The “widow of Anatole Litvak” (Self has no idea who this is; should she care?) lights up a cigarette on the yacht, thereby making herself the focus of Spiegel’s wrath, while the male guests are allowed to puff merrily away “on cigars.”

Self would not last one minute in such a crowd.

Stay tuned, dear blog readers. Stay tuned.
