Apparently Bravo is creating television shows specifically for me...


I think I love you Andy Cohen. Andy is the adorable SVP of programming at Bravo, and it's pretty safe to say that I'm not his type (shocker), but I feel like he must worship me from afar or something because he keeps creating televisions shows that are pretty much tailor made for my viewing pleasure.

From Bravo's website:

NYC Prep chronicles the lives of a group of privileged teenagers who are key players in Manhattan's elite high school scene. Students who travel in packs – whether it's on sophisticated vacations or to a townhouse for an exclusive midnight party, their lives intertwine as they network, shop, party, study, date and write college applications. Everyone's beautiful and everyone's connected.

On the surface, it seems that these teens live an enviable life. They have access and privilege to spare, and can't imagine that anything or anyone, will get in their way. Over the course of the series, we'll see them on the benefit circuit, viewers will get to know their families, their entourage (trainers, college application advisors, stylists) and their guys/girls of the moment. But privilege has its price. Despite their carefree lives, the pressure of lofty expectations can sometimes be too much for even the most confident teenagers.

NYC Prep will premiere Tuesday, June 16 at 11 p.m. ET/PT and will move to its regular timeslot on Tuesday, June 23 at 10 p.m. ET/PT.

It's like the real-life version of Gossip Girl. Smell ya later, LC and Speidi. I've got a date with your younger, hotter and hopefully more entertaining counterparts. God bless Bravo and thanks to Lindsay for sending the link!

Yay, more stuff to procrastinate with!

I'm glad to hear I'm not the only one who loves these teen shows. :)

Little Ms J said...

Oh goodness. More stuff to watch from behind my fingers. I get embarrassed for these people and spend most shows hiding my face from the TV.

Lisa, any comments on the Countess? Her Frenchie stepped out. I feel sorry for her, but she's keeping the title. I can only guess what next season will look like... Millionaire Matchmaker anyone?

Katie said...

Dude. I'm so there. Let's dish about it after :-)

wait. Who says "dish?" not me!

Let's "gab"

no. too old lady

Let's chat - maybe...

*thinks for the perfect word and gives up.

Do all writers think like this??

Lisa and Laura said...

Oh the Countess! I hate to say it but I'm sort of gleeful about her divorce. I mean she's just so damn condescending with all of her manners BS. And her stupid book and all of her catty comments. It's going to be one hell of a reunion show, don't you think?

And on a scale of 1-10 how much do you hate Kelly? I'm at a 9.5. She really thinks quite highly of herself, doesn't she? I feel like everyone on these shows need to be remindinded of the fact that they're on a reality television show on Bravo. You are not famous for doing anything substantial. You are not next in line to the throne. You are on Bravo with people like Christian Syriano and Marcus from Top Chef. Get over yourselves.

P.S. I love you and I'm your biggest fan and will never miss a single Bravo reality television show and if I saw you in person I'd probably be totally star struck and ask for your autograph. Kisses!

Wow. I'm in! We are sisters separated at birth (I hope your mom is our real one)...lol.

Anyhoo! You said something that tickled me! You mentioned "everyone's beautiful" I must be the biggest snob in the world but I can not watch a show unless I'm attracted to the people in it. Is that not sad? I'm so shallow I guess.

I remember being so into Beverly Hills 90210. My husband would harass me and tell me I was too old to watch (excuse me, but Luke Perry is three years older than I am!) I can just imagine what he'll say now when I turn this on... :^)

slhastings said...

Oh no! Another guilty pleasure show! I can't take it. At least I didn't get hooked on housewives!

Sara Tribble said...

They need to stop making all these shows! I am already backed up on my DVR!!

Lisa and Laura said...

P-Clo - We'd happily name you and LMJ as honorary sisters. It's entirely possible we were separated at birth, right? And yes, I have a real issue watching unattractive people on television and I'm pretty sure I'll go to hell for it. For example, while I was preggers I was obsessed with watching A Baby Story on TLC (I know...) and I refused to watch it unless the woman was relatively attractive. And then towards the end of my pregnancy I discovered this show on Discovery Health that was about a modeling agency for pregnant women. Hell ya. It was like porn for the knocked up.

So glad that our blog friends are into this new show. I'm thinking we might have to have some sort of weekly debrief once this starts airing.

I love GG so this show sounds intriguing.

Hey, I was wondering if you guys would like to do a guest post on my blog. I was thinking one of your celeb gossip poems (because they rock). I could put a link to your blog and book website. Let me know if you are interested.

Don't call this a comeback

So it’s been a minute. Or 10. Or truthfully more like 2,102,400. At least we think that’s how many minutes there are in 3 years, but let...
