"Eighty-five percent of the women around here have had breast implants," says Kimberly, matter-of-factly. It's what passes for a census study behind the gates of Coto de Caza, an O.C. development for the nouveau riche and the setting of Bravo's sad and highly watchable new reality soap, "The Real Housewives of Orange County."

The show, brought back by Bravo for a second season that debuts tonight, was down-marketed out of the gate as a kind of Orange County Festival of Breasts, complete with Hummer rides, mansion tours and face-painting that involves needles and toxins as opposed to brushes and watercolor.

During the 18th century, a fashionable pastime among London's rich and royal was to visit Bethlem Royal Hospital, most commonly known as Bedlam, and watch the antics of the mentally ill.
