‘Princesses: Long Island’ Reality Show Coming Soon
Move over Snooki & JWOWW, a new reality series is about to debut following the antics of a half dozen Long Island socialites living with their parents while partying it up in New York City and the Hamptons.
The new docu-series called Princesses: Long Island, which premieres on Bravo in six weeks, follows the college-educated young women who live pampered lifestyles off the comfort of their parent’s bank accounts. It offers a window into their family dynamics and personal lives filled with labels, luxury and love trials.
“These Princesses Know What They Want,” is the tag line for the new show.
The show looks like a mix of MTV’s Jersey Shore and Bravo’s other hit series, The Real Housewives, with all the drama, drunkenness and stereotyping.
Whether it will do better than the short-lived Growing Up Gold Coast reality show that debuted last fall on Lifetime remains to be seen.
The women making up the cast include two Great Neck natives: Amanda Bertoncini, a businesswoman who lives with her mother, and Chanel “Coco” Omari, a blogger and aspiring talk-show host who always knows where the hottest parties are.
Like Omari, Casey Cohen of Jericho lives part time in New York City to feed her passion for art, education and giving back.
Hailing from Old Westbury is Erica Gimbe, who works in event planning and public relations and loves following all things fashion and entertainment.
And rounding out the majority of the Gold Coast natives on the cast is Ashlee White of Roslyn, who has difficulty finding a man because of her high standards but doesn’t have any plans to settle down or move out of her parent’s house.
The lone South Shore princess is Joey Lauren, who lives with her family in Freeport but does not enjoy being financially dependent and would prefer to be on her own.
Princesses: Long Island premieres on Bravo at 9 p.m. on Sunday, June 2. See the trailer for the series premier below:
