The Future of Socialites is Grey Gardens.

I seriously never realized these were real people until the other day. Grey Gardens documents the lives of an elderly, divorced, ex-socialite mother and her middle-aged, single, live-in-carer daughter. They lived the way the average girl of my generation is living. And this is a good example of where it ends up.

What are your thoughts on Grey Gardens and the futures of professional socialites?

TTFN and Happy Hunting!

  1. Socialite is too broad a term. The Beale’s were women of their time and of a certain class. I imagine mental illness had a role in leading them to where they ended up. As a general rule inequality is increasing to Belle Epoque levels; technically that means the upper classes cement themselves into position and that decreases chances for social mobility for people at the bottom and middle.
