The Fashionista Diaries: Did You Watch?

Loving this new show. Not loving this new show. First, what I liked about The Fashionista Diaries. I like Janjay, Andrew and Nicole, even though Nicole flaked out a bit by the end of the first episode (she's the greenest one), I'm still rooting for her, Janjay and Andrew. I wasn't really feeling Rachel, Tina and I especially wasn't feeling Bridget. The other thing I didn't like about the show, and part of it is just a reality of the fashion industry itself, and that's the fact that some fashion people can be some of the rudest, cattiest, "know-it-all" type personalities on the planet. But it is what it is I guess. The show follows 6 interns in the fashion, beauty and public relations/publishing industries as they compete for their "dream" fashion job, and I have to say, even with the rudeness, I'm officially intrigued by this new show (there's a lot of that same "rudeness" on the MTV show "The Hills" and I can't get enough of that show, lol!). I for one am gonna keep watching. So did ya'll watch? What did ya'll think?

  1. I watched and I loved every minute of it. I hate that Bridget is getting so much attention. That's the last thing she needs. She's a spoiled brat.

  2. I am SO Team Janjay!!! I am wondering why Nicole was chosen out of hundreds of applicants. Maybe, the producers wanted someone naivee to "real" fashion.

    Seriously though, if anyone even asked me to swallow their gum for them, because they were through with it or hold it out for me EXPECTING me to throw anyway, the next thing that going to get thrown is a fist!

    Anyway, I am totally hooked!!

  3. Bridget...ya gotta love to hate her. Is she for real (probly not!) with that "I'm so cute" act? Does she think she is fashionable with those maternity frocks and Friends hair? She's a snake. Imagine having to put up with someone like that in real life? I pray parents watch, and take care lest they spoil their little darlings into that kind of turd.

  4. I totally love, love, love this show, I am really riveted. I am a real fan of The Apprentice both US and UK and I adore Ugly Betty and The Devil Wears Prada and Fashionista Diaries is a combo of all three. I am in absolute heaven. From first impressions I like JanJay, Rachel, Nicole and Tina. I did not take to Bridget or Andrew; Bridget comes across as a tad bit bitchy and Andrew a bit dense and shallow but saying that even though this is a 'reality' show we all know how people can be edited to fit a certain sterotype. I am not sure what is going on with Nicole but she really needs to start believing in herself and start going for things or she is going to cut right out of it. Tina seems a bit dippy but a genuine sweet lady and I have a feeling that her dippiness may land her in trouble with JanJay if the clips from next week's programme is anything to go by. Out of the six Rachel and JanJay impressed me the most, Rachel certainly knows her stuff and leaves and breathes Jane and as for JanJay, well could she be anymore poised and how is she only 22? In terms of the employers; Brandon Holley is as cool and collected as I would expect a glossy magazine editor to be and I thought Kathleen Pierce from Flirt Cosmetics was extremely endearing and such a great role model. I thought Mandie Erickson was a total bitch and very unprofessional for blanking her staff at a function they were organising and bad mouthing Nicole to Bridget. I know fashion PR is a very shallow world but hey have some degree of ethics. Anyway I will be glued next week and the week after that.

  5. NICOLE IS THE BIGGEST PHONY ON THE PLANET SHE DOES NOT LIVE IN A DUPLEX SHE LIVES IN THE BASEMENT OF HER PARENTS HOUSE! SHE IS NOT A TEACHER NOR IS SHE A RESTAURANT MANAGER OR ADMINSTRATIVE ASSISTANT FOR SOME ONE AS PHONY AS HER YOU WOULD THINK SHE'D KNOW THAT JUICY COUTURE IS THE NAME OF THE LINE! NOT THE DESIGNERS SHE HAS FAKE HAIR, EYES AND EVERYTHING ELSE IN BETWEEN!

  6. I love this show and I am even more excited at the fact that you can watch the full episodes on ABC.com.

    I am in no way shape or form a hater, but I cannot stand that damn Bridget..she is such a typical stereotype of what women are like in fashion.

    I am team Janjay all the way because she is a silent threat.. she strikes when you least expect it and she knows her stuff but is not cocky about it!

    Nicole, I am rooting for too. I hope that she shows how bad she wants it during her probabtion period.

  7. I absolutely LOVE Janjay. She is sooooo cool, sweet, intelligent, and REAL. I haven't seen a mean bone in her yet (proving that a person can succeed without being a bitch). Plus the girl can dress. I hope she succeeds.

  8. i absolutely lovvveeee janjay!

    i really want to work for a magazine or in the dangerous fields of PR when im older (im 13)
    and Janjay is really inspiring because she is not the typical "blonde hair-super model" intern that is shown on tv and in the hills etc.

    shes really easy going, stylish, and responsible for her own actions, unlike (ahem) nicole..


    I LOVE THIS SHOW AND I WILL KEEP ON WATCHING!

    too bad i cant see full episodes on abc.com because im in canada
    :@ !!
