“Downtown Girls” = “The Hills,” “The City” And “Sex & The City” In A Blender
Did you watch this video of Shallon Lester, former New York Daily News gossip columnist, telling men she judges them by their jeans? Well, there’s more where that came from! On June 1, MTV is debuting “Downtown Girls,” a reality TV show about — wait for it — rich, beautiful 20- and 30-somethings who appear to live and/or party at a huuuuge apartment in downtown Manhattan. There’s Nikki the “rich girl”; Gurj Bassi, the “crazy Brit” (who’s on Twitter); Klo, “the slightly older, definitely wiser one”; Victoria, “the ditzy one”; and, of course, Shallon, who is now a writer at Glamour and “observes everything and tries to make sense of it all.” And judges men based on their jeans.
But hey, I’m not gonna lie: I’ll totally watch this crap. [MTV]
