Gossip Girl Turned Reality – and it bites!
“NYC Prep is a reality television program on the Bravo channel. NYC Prep chronicles the lives of six teenagers in Manhattan's private school scene. NYC Prep will follow six Manhattan teenagers in their daily lives as they attend events such as weekend parties, fashion shows, shopping sprees, charity events and dinner parties.” NYC Prep is a show with a cast of six silly and pathetic teenagers who dare to think that they are the real-life equivalent of Chuck, Nate, Blair and Serena.
I’m a bit upset Wikipedia did not include that last sentence!
I don’t know what’s gotten into Bravo channel and their ridiculous ideas for reality shows. You have one with aging housewives who has Botox fetishes and a knack for catfights, acting like they haven’t finished living out their cheerleader dreams since High School. Then there’s that other one where they have celebrity has-beens and wannabes act all Posh Spice and battle it out with needle and fabric to launch their own clothing line. And now, this!
Looking at the casts’ photo posted above, I have a feeling the blonde one is their Serena (and that’s the only similarity between the two), the brunette in the red satin blouse is the closest they can find to casting as Blair, the other brunette on the right side in yellow cardigan, they’re probably passing off as the loser Blair bullied in Constance, but don’t get me started on the wide-eyed girl with poop on her hair (third from left).
As for dissecting the guys, the brooding, emo, eye-liner loving, Adam Lambert look-alike in the middle should be their version of the dreamboat that is Chuck, while the blonde Beiber Admirer is probably Nate gone bad.
Obviously these kids were born with silver, perhaps even gold spoons in their traps and they might be swimming in coins like Uncle Scrooge in Duck Tales but unfortunately what they have in dollars, they lack in looks.
What say you kids leave it to the professional actors and actresses to live your lives on TV? That way, we don’t waste perfectly good rolls of video tape. Or I can also suggest you gather those big bags of moolah and splurge them on a good surgeon! Ask those crazy bastards to wave their magic knives and needles to make you look like the GG cast.
You know you love me. xoxo
