“Downtown Girls” Premiere Recap: Reduce, Reuse & Recycle Your Exes

MTV‘s newest reality show “Downtown Girls” debuted last night and finally we got to see for ourselves whether Glamour.com writer Shallon Lester and her pals are more or less annoying than “The Hills.”

Frisky Q&A: Shallon Lester, Star Of MTV’s “Downtown Girls”

I was not prepared to like Shallon Lester, the star of MTV‘s newest reality show, “Downtown Girls.” I mean, she’s on an MTV reality show, right?! These are the people who foisted Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt upon our unsuspecting souls. I prepared myself for MTV’s latest skinny blonde offering to the couch potato gods to be predictably detestable.

Who Is Shallon Lester, Anyway?

“Downtown Girls” = “The Hills,” “The City” And “Sex & The City” In A Blender

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] Keep reading »

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]
