'NYC Prep': Love it or hate it?

Nyc prep cast photo Bravo's latest reality offering, "NYC Prep," premiered last night and one thing is for sure: It's no "Gossip Girl." Yes, I realize that one show is fiction while the other is "real," but you can't help but ask that life imitate art this one time. Chuck and Blair may be prone to saying things like "That's what New York is: Money is power" and "I treat my clothing like children," but somehow the charm is lost when it's coming out of real teenagers' mouths.

However, despite its blatant materialism and pithy observations of the have-nots, I'm going to give this show a chance and hope it unveils more honest depictions of the angst and competitiveness involved in those social circles. PC and Jessie's tumultuous relationship bears potential and no doubt Sebastian's player ways will be an unending source of entertainment (one request though, Romeo: Please tone down the hair flipping). Check this space for "NYC Prep" recaps and updates.

What did you think of the premiere episode? Did you love it or hate it?
