The stars of Rich Kids of Instagram, the  Tumblr dedicated to teens and 20-somethings living extremely lavish lifestyles,  are set to become reality TV celebrities.

According to Deadline,  E! is developing a show called Rich Kids of Beverly Hills, which will star a  group of uber wealthy friends who spend  their time sailing on their yachts, lounging around their mansions and driving  their expensive sports cars.

Some of the stars have apparently been  featured on the notorious blog, but a spokesperson for Rich Kids of Instagram  told the Atlantic that  the new show is ‘not associated’ with the website.

Although some of the stars have apparently been featured  on the Rich Kids of Instagram, a spokesperson for the blog has said the new show  is ‘not associated’ with the website

The launch date of the proposed unscripted  show has yet to be revealed.

Rich Kids of Instagram is a  compilation of photos taken from the Instagram feeds of wealthy  youngsters,  including those who have famous parents and relatives.

Donald Trump’s 19-year-old daughter Tiffany  has been featured on the website showing off the family’s private  jet.

And Barron Hilton, Paris’s younger brother,  has been pictured on the blog  strolling on the beach with an unidentified  blonde in the Hamptons.

Other celebrity offspring on the site include  Mitt Romney’s granddaughter Allie and Stephanie Seymour’s son Peter Brant  II.

The voyeuristic website first gained  notoriety last year when it was launched with the tagline: ‘They have more money  than you and this is what they do.’

Many of the photos show the moneyed youths  vacationing in beautiful, far-off destinations.

One such image shows a man casually hitting a  golf ball into the ocean from his enormous yacht, while another shows a woman  standing atop a boat in a jacuzzi, looking out over the ocean.

Other photos demonstrate the luxuries they  are able to afford, like one of a woman striking a pose atop the wing of her  private jet.

In one of the most recent posts, a young man  wearing a leather outfit poses up against a black sports car, surrounded by  shopping bags from designers including Louis Vuitton.

The caption reads: ‘Great couple of days in  Stockholm with a lot of shopping. We like that s***! Next up:  Falkenberg.’

Some of the subjects of the blog have hit  back, saying they do not want their pictures used to ‘shame’ them for living an  extravagant lifestyle.

In July 2012, 19-year-old Annabel Schwartz,  whose St Tropez holiday was revealed on the website, told Good Morning America:  ‘My friends and I don’t want to be associated with this. . . This is very  embarrassing.’

She added: ‘I don’t want to be represented by  my money and my vacation experiences.’
