We're two episodes into Princesses: Long Island, and I have to admit that I don't hate the show. Sure, my summer TV standards are ridiculously low, but I fully expected these self-proclaimed princesses to annoy me to no end.
But first, Amanda Bertoncini and Joey Lauren must kinda, sorta, not really deal with the fallout from last week's drunken pool party. Amanda's annoying voice opens the show, sharing, "A slap in the face heals but a harsh word is always remembered," adding, "I'm surprised that half the girls in Long Island don't have black eyes." #lifelessonsbybravo
So, Joey meets Amanda to talk about the Jeff/Sara/Facebook drama, and she kind of apologizes for, um, something. However, Joey refuses to accept any responsibility for the hurtful words that were said or the drinks that were thrown, and Amanda still believes that Joey should have at least asked her friend to leave the party. In the end, Amanda accepts Joey's apology, but she vows to keep her eye on her in the future.
The ratings did not disappoint! 2.84 Million people watched RHONJ in the original 8PM airing! That's impressive for a premiere. Ratings usually increase as the season progresses.
Ratings for seasons 3 & 4 of the show were steadily in the 2.6 million mark per episode with the season 4 reunion yanking in over 3.4 million gawkers. Everyone wanted to see Jacqueline Laurita lose it in person, apparently!
Bravo is unfurling upon us a whole new slew of reality television fame grasping hopefuls. In their newest attempt to woo us with overly indulged women behaving in questionable manners Princesses: Long Island will be debuting this June!
Bravo describes the show as a unique look into the lives of pampered spoiled rich girls who went to college for the MRS degrees, it didn't work out, so they moved back in with their parents and waited until Mr. Right came along to fund their extravagant lifestyles. Ok, so maybe that's just the description I'M giving the show.
The official show synopsis is below:
“Princesses: Long Island” documents the lives of six college-educated young women from affluent areas of “Longuyland” who live pampered lifestyles in the comfort of their parents’ homes and at the expense of their bank accounts. The series offers a window into their family dynamics and personal lives filled with labels, luxury and love trials. The young women face pressure from their families and friends to find husbands and to settle down. Will these members of the boomerang generation find their Prince Charming or are they forever content with their co-dependent relationships with their parents?
