You probably already read about Bravo's next reality show. If not, here's a piece on it from the Post the other day:
"NYC Prep," which premieres ... June 23, follows five students from prestigious private schools and one from an elite public high school as they groan at length about their riches — while trying to edge each other out in the social standings.
"I don't want to apologize for having money!" Camille Hughes, 16, a junior at Nightingale-Bamford School, says in the premiere. "It's good."
From Joshua Stein's recap in the Times:
“My hobby,” says Sebastian, a doe-eyed 16-year-old ladies’ man, “is hooking up with the hottest girls I can.” Like any budding player, Sebastian goes on a date to Kurve, a futuristic Thai place in the East Village, with a wingman and two hapless 16-year-old girls.
Curb just reported that the Cooper Square Hotel has released a "signature scent" scent called Wanderlust.
