For the same reason I’ve seen episodes of “The Hills” (I’m girly, and curious and yadda) I will be tuning in to sample some episodes of the new show on THE CW “High Society”. (That’s actually the name of a fabulous musical with Grace Kelly, btw.)
This is a reality show that focuses on Manhattan socialite Tinsley Mortimer and her circle of friends.You may have seen Mortimer in a season 2 episode of Gossip Girl, or you may know her for her supposed feud with fellow socialite (and MTV’s The City “star” Olivia Palermo). Mortimer was married to a guy with the funniest nickname ever – Topper! His full name (boring) is Robert Livingston Mortimer. (Yawn!)
The first time I ever took notice of Tinsley was when Harpar’s Bazaar did a spread on her house (the pics are gone but the article is an interesting read). She seemed likable and respectable. I’m not sure if I’ll feel the same way after seeing this show. In HP she said, “”I like pretty things around. I like it to be prissed up. Then I feel at least something is sane in my life.” …I am so ready to see this show.
HIGH SOCIETY follows Tinsley Mortimer, New York’s most talked-about “Park Avenue Princess,” as she and her circle of often-controversial friends circulate through New York’s most prestigious black-tie affairs, outrageous parties and fashion exclusives, with never-before-seen access from behind the velvet rope.
“High Society” premieres Wednesday, March 10 at 9:30pm PST following an all new cycle of “America’s Next Top Model.”
