I have no shame, I watch reality TV. Why fight it? Sure I watch “real” shows, like Nurse Jackie, Weeds, Dexter etc, but nothing keeps me as glued as watching another persons daily life. Now more than ever, our socializing habits have turned our generation into these rabid information hounds. Who better to bring me into someone else’s “world” than Bravo, with their new show NYC Prep. New York will forever fascinate me, & these kids make Gossip Girl look like child’s play. These people are not characters, they are the privileged, rich, spoiled & sometimes bubble trapped offspring of the Upper West & East Side. Although they can be bratty at times, they speak the truth when it comes to the realities of money, fame & “who you know”. They can sound a bit “abrasive” & we sound “jealous” saying they are terrible people…but is it because a part of us, would want to see what it’s like? Umm yeah…I would trade this bag of ramen for an STK dinner any day…poor is not cool.
She is only 16 years old & already being followed by Kanye West. Although now that I think about it it’s kinda creepy that he’s even looking at her blog website. I’m talking about Jane Aldridge, a Trophy Club, TX socialite & owner of an impressive shoe collection that could rival some of the best out there. Her site Sea of Shoes is a great photographic archive of her coming into her own woman except she just happens to have lots of money to covet some of the most prized shoes. She writes about shoes that she’s in lust over & then eventually gets them. Where as if I lust for them, it ends there. Just lust. I will live vicariously through her rich parents poketbooks and pretend that I am her walking through the streets of Dallas in her incredible heels. Sigh*
