LIFE ON THE FLIP SIDE

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - TV Guide - - Front Page -

WHEN Scott Disick dons a beige suit to min­gle with po­ten­tial buy­ers of his newly flipped Mal­ibu prop­erty, the re­al­ity star trum­pets the “re­turn of the Lord.” For those un­fa­mil­iar with Keep­ingUp­with­theKar­dashi­ans, this was the moniker Disick (pic­tured) gave him­self to ex­plain his out­landish fashion taste and re­gal be­hav­iour. There is some truth to his boast­ing, because when he teams the suit with his hip­ster beard and chin-skim­ming man-bob, the look is indeed rather royal. Roy­alTe­nen­baums, that is. Yes, some­where along the way, Disick has started to morph into Luke Wil­son’s ec­cen­tric char­ac­ter in the 2001 movie. The only thing missing from his look is the sweat band. When it comes to style, Disick marches to the same beat as his pseudo in-laws. He favours excess over sim­plic­ity. In the Kar­dashian’s world, big­ger is al­most al­ways bet­ter (es­pe­cially when it comes to bot­toms, lips and pay cheques). So, it comes as no sur­prise that Disick would want to tear out a per­fectly good pool to build him­self a trendier one; or that he has a gi­ant statue of David in­stalled in his bach­e­lor pad. The big­gest sur­prise about this show is that Disick now seems hell-bent on trying to prove to the world that he does some­thing be­yond making night­club ap­pear­ances. I am just not sure that team­ing up with a pop-singer-turned-in­te­rior-de­signer and two of his mates for this reno show is the best way to do it.
