Today's New York Daily News trashes new Bravo show Pregnant in Heels, which follows the life of Upper East Side maternity store owner and all-around baby maven Rosie Pope. Reviewer David Hinckley gives the show one star, writing "There's a dirty little secret about extreme narcissism even in the service of a TV reality show. It's boring." He's particularly grossed out by the couple in tonight's premiere who ask Rosie to put together a panel of branding experts to help name their baby. Based on what we learned from Bravo's clip, the panel includes a poet and a Stanford University linguistics professor, so here's hoping they come up with something good.
