Every member of the cast of Bravo's Euros of Hollywood, which premiered Monday night, is singularly delightful. Obviously there is no better American than an American who recently immigrated here, and the "Euros" are all ecstatically patriotic and sincerely optimistic in a way that's weirdly galvanizing? ("They're right...the world IS at our feet here in the US...especially in terms of pop-music recording options!") They are a rag tag, international crew of unlikely heroes earnestly chasing the Hollywood dream with full hearts, fat wallets, and adorable accents.

I have to say Massimo's American accent, above, is way better than my Italian accent, or my Southern Italian accent, plus I can't speak Italian. Though his face when Bleona banged on the door of his dinner party was way more expressive than words in any human tongue:

I don't know if he or really any of us was ready for Bleona, the self-described "Madonna of Albania." She has come to LA to drive around a gold car with the license plate "Bleonaire" and drink the tears of customer service workers and studio engineers.

She's loud! She's brassy! She's aggressive! And apparently with good reason: she started supporting her family at the age of 14 after civil unrest cost her father his job, and hasn't stopped since. She has that "Beyonce effect" where when she's on screen everyone else just seems like a backup dancer.

Bravo is probably not the ideal platform from which to chase her dreams of Legitimate International Pop Star status, but in terms of becoming a reality TV icon, Bleona is right on track. She's got the fight and she's got the perfect frenemy, nay, frenemesis ready to help fuel a season's arc of fighting, the very sensual Fawni.

Oh yes. This is what we call a very solid start, Euros of Hollywood. Welcome to LA and also to the land of my DVR "series record" setting. You'll fit in just fine.
