What do we mean by that? Well, we mean it’s like the days of Gallery Girls, and we loved that time. Less staging and more aspirational and relatable.
While we’re loving shows such as Summer House and Winter House, we’ve been awaiting shows that feel like we’re watching people live their real lives. And we feel like we’ve found that in Real Girlfriends in Paris.
We were supposed to sit down with Victoria Zito and Margaux Lignel, but Victoria had a last minute timing issue (which we understood cause we follow her on Instagram and we know she’s been traveling).
Have to admit that it made us nervous to talk to Margaux alone, because she’s such a personality on the show. So to be very honest, I stumbled.
But the joy of Real Girlfriends in Paris, is it doesn’t matter if you stumble. You realize that you’re going to be able to pick yourself up.
In Paris, six bold 20-something American women experience their wildest adventure yet. While in the City of Lights, they find each other, encounter a romantic rendezvous or two and embrace all the spontaneity that comes with living in an exciting new city. Always looking for a good time, the women find themselves in an extraordinarily rich moment in their lives where the possibilities for true love, unrelenting passion and forging lifelong friendships are endless.
Sounds perfect, right? Well it’s definitely a show that we’re loving. Once you get past the first episode (though it does have its good parts) you will fall into the world of Emily Gorelik, Anya Firestone, Adja Toure, Victoria Zito, Margaux Lignel, and Kacey Margo. You’ll start to root for them like they are your friends. You’ll become invested in their lives. You’ll love them and you’ll become angry at them.
You’ll look forward to the visits from them every week. And that’s the sign of a good television show, becoming invested in the cast or characters, wishing and hoping for good things to happen for them, and trying to figure out what happens next.
