So, we’re two episodes into NYC Prep, Bravo TV’s reality response to Gossip Girl.

The (Unattractive) Cast of NYC Prep

The (Unattractive) Cast of NYC Prep

Who’s your favorite character thus far? Are you buying any of this bullshit? High school kids, hanging out in totally EMPTY lounges in Manhattan? GTFOH.

Let’s run it down by quotes:

Says Sebastian: “Why date one girl when you can, like, date a bunch?”
Please stop flipping your hair. Who do you think you are? A young Brad Pitt. EPIC FUCKING FAIL.

Says PC: “Everything in New York City is about pulling connections. It’s who you know, and how much money you have. And it’s really sad? And I’m not saying I’m like that? But that’s what New York is: money is power.”
FYI, You could never be Chuck Bass. You may have his money, but you can’t pay for that kind of swagger. Put your credit card back in your pocket sweetie.

Says Jessie: “You don’t wear all your labels at once, and I think it’s very important to mix and match.”
Darling. Hate to break it to you angel, but you’re slightly cross-eyed. And you have a Jay Leno chin. Sorry—can’t get past that.

Says Kelli: “We don’t do homework. We don’t work.”
You want to be a singer? Puh-leeze. Oh, and as for the Sebastian-Kelli-Taylor triangle, it must suck to constantly come in second.

Says Camille: “I don’t want to apologize for having money. It’s good.’’
You look mildly retarded. Thank fuck your parents have money, otherwise life would be just a little different for you. It always is for girls with unfortunate faces. Like yours.

Says Taylor: “It’s good to be perceived as having money.”
Oh, poor little Taylor. You’re so cute, but why did you let them film in your apartment? That was the beginning of the end for you.

Just my thoughts on this scripted piece of shit show.

(And yes, I’ll be watching this week. And next.)

So this one has been on my radar for quite sometime, but other than the whole ‘Please-Be-My-Friend’ email snafu [click HERE to read it], I haven’t cared much about Olivia Palermo, until I realized she’d been cast as the villain in MTV’s new The Hills spinoff show, The City, opposite boring-as-they-fucking-come Whitney Port.

Here’s the sheer hilarity about it all:

1) Olivia Palermo is LOADED. Other than muse, what other position would this socialite have at DVF? MTV is killing me by getting these rich girls faux gigs for the sake of “reality.” The least they could do was get her a position with Chanel or YSL. (Maybe they tried?)

2) Even though The City doesn’t premiere until late December, they’ve done a fabulous job of pitting fans against Olivia already. Did you see how the camera panned in on Olivia’s face, looking rather…devious? [Click HERE to see the snoozefest/trailer for The City].

3) Why would Olivia even want to be on this show? It’s sure to become a camp hit like its successor, but seriously-a socialite on MTV? A reality show? Really? We all saw Tinsley on Gossip Girl, but guest starring is totally fine-fake acting is not. According the the email she supposedly penned, doesn’t she want to be taken seriously by her peers? This surely won’t help.

Nevertheless, I’ll be watching. For Olivia obviously, not Whitney. I’m loving the whole brunette vs. blonde thing. I only hope that this time, the brunette wins.

P.S. I ran into her at a jewelry event at The Plaza earlier this week, and she’s definitely two times skinnier in person than she is in snaps. The girl MUST survive on ice and water. Wish. I. Had. The. Strength.

Susan Fales-Hill husband Aaron Hill

ICYDK, it’s extremely rare to find a photo of socialite Susan Fales-Hill with her oft camera-shy husband of over ten years, Aaron Hill. She’s a veteran Hollywood television writer, he’s a big shot investment banker. Aren’t the parents-of-one a devilishly handsome pair?

I hope to see more of these two out on the town together more often in 2008.

Bisou Bisou,
