Discuss: Will You Watch a Real-Life Gossip Girl? - Featured

Bravo has greenlit a real life version of Gossip Girl (I'm thinking like all of those Real Housewives shows...but with teens) called NYC Prep.

It will premiere on Tuesday, June 16th at 11PM and will move to 10PM in subsequent weeks.

Official Description:

''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 advisers, 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.''

So...is this a show you think you'd like to watch? I always thought those Real Housewives series looked silly, yet recently I have found myself addicted (especially NYC), so I am totally there!

personally I'm not a fan of the Housewives but I like the silly drama that happens and how stupid they can be sometimes. But I think this show is just like Gossip Girl except they want to add some reality into the mix which is totally cool but I don't know I'm totally convinced yet.... I think I'm going to wait till the first episode and go from there.

Aren't these "reality" shows mostly scripted anyway? So if it's anything like the show...might give it a go.

They are not gossip girl- they THINK they are, which is probably why they are on their own "reality" show now. It is just like when the movie "Mean Girls" came out- every girl- myself included- begun acting exactly how the movie stars were acting and became mean girls. This is no different it is just with richer snobbier teens.
So no haha

I don't know.. I'm not expecting much but it could be good. They should make a show following the life of a corporate executive or something. o.o
