New MTV Show “Downtown Girls” Turns A Blogger Into A TV Star
It’s good to be on the interwebs. Shallon Lester, a New York Daily News gossip columnist-turned-blogger-turned-vlogger for DoubleAgent.com, has struck MTV gold. She’ll star in a new MTV “reality sitcom”: “Downtown Girls.” The show will chronicle the real-life exploits of five twenty-somethings in New York: a whip-smart vlogger/blogger, an aspiring lawyer, a chic boutique owner, a hip music executive, and a bride-to-be. It will bear no resemblance whatsoever to “The City” or “Sex and The City.” We swear. [Gawker]
[Warning: The video after the jump auto plays.] Here’s the thing. I just don’t know if I’m buying Shallon as “whip-smart.” Check out the clip below of this leading lady discussing how she judges dudes on their jeans. If that’s whip-smart, then I am Pulitzer material.
