That movie star life is Tamara’s regular life, and here we get an up close and personal insight into her world.
This review of the Netflix reality series Lady Tamara Season 1 does not contain spoilers.
Netflix has released its latest reality series where we follow the life of someone rich and famous. In this series, we follow the glamorous life of Tamara Falco, the famous socialite. We see how she manages to balance her work life, social life, and her famous family.
Taking center stage is something this family is used to, and across six episodes lasting roughly forty minutes each, we get to see them more up-close and personal with fly-on-the-wall style filming mixed with interviews. Audiences enjoy seeing the lives of rich and famous people, for one it’s entertaining and two it helps distract us from our mundane lives; let us live through their experiences and hopefully, see something we can relate to. As awful as it sounds, audiences do enjoy watching other people suffer and be miserable.
You don’t need to know who Tamara is to enjoy this series, but if you didn’t know, she is the 6th Marchioness of Griñón, a Spanish aristocrat, and a co-host of the TV show El Hormiguero. She is the only child of aristocrat Carlos Falcó, 12th Marquess of Castel-Moncayo, GE, with Spanish-Filipino socialite Isabel Preysler. So, in a nutshell, she’s a rich, fancy, important woman. A busy bee with a crazy social calendar, it’s surprising she has time to pursue her biggest passion, cooking. Over the episodes, we see how she is building and opening her own restaurant and the obstacles along the way.
What I really enjoyed about this reality series is the fact it doesn’t feel pretentious or as if she’s purposefully showing off her lavish lifestyle for attention. This world is her oyster, and everything she has she’s natural with. In her interviews with the camera, she’s sat in between her grand double staircase, and it feels glamorous, not garish. A very inspiring woman, she’s her own empire, independent and following her passions.
There are snippets from old home videos of her as a child and growing up, which really gives this series a personal feel. Home videos are something most of our families have and remind us of the good old days and how far we have come. Some audiences might not be able to relate to her buying YLS on a whim but can relate to her sweet home videos.
We’re given an insight into private, prestigious parties, fashion shows, exclusive shopping, walking through the streets of Madrid and New York, and everything else you can imagine. Unlike similar shows, this series has a cozy and cute feel, there are no serious intense dramas or fighting. Of course, we see some scandals and tensions, but nothing that feels forced or put in there for the purpose of television.
Overall this series is an easy watch, something you can binge, and something you can have on in the background while cooking maybe. I recommend watching this if you’re a fan of reality shows.
