Even by the reality-show standards of cable’s TLC—the channel that brought us Here Comes Honey Boo Boo—the high-speed train wreck called Sin City Rules was breathtakingly awful. Debuting in December and gone by New Year’s Day, Rules followed the lives of five Vegas women: clothing designer Lana Fuchs, poker star Jennifer Harman, cosmetics line owner Lori Montoya, Amy Hanley (late mob hit man Tom Hanley’s kid, who was reportedly missing, but not really, in a bizarre kerfuffle) and entertainment reporter/gadfly Alicia Jacobs. Crude, catty and classless, it was mercifully beheaded from TLC’s schedule after only five episodes, with three more left to stink up TLC’s website. Meanwhile, someone needs to fumigate all of Las Vegas—you can still smell the stench.
