So MTV is planning more celebrity-hosted reality programs, in an effort to keep basic cable viewers from the bread and butter of MTV - music videos. Two shows Gothamist was intrigued by:
"Power Girls" features press maven [Lizzie] Grubman and her team of publicists as they run the nightlife in Manhattan, the Hamptons and Miami.
"Borrow My Crew," hosted by Fonzworth Bentley, rents out entourages-to-the-stars to viewers in need. In the first episode, MTV hires Jennifer Lopez's team to help a girl get ready for senior prom. Bentley, Sean "P. Diddy" Combs and Andre Harrell execexec produce.
Oh, wait, Power Girls is not Powerpuff Girls. Our mistake. We guess we'll be seeing car crashes, legal proceedings, and lots of straightened blond hair in Power Girls. But Borrow My Crew seems like it'll be hosted by Farnsworth Bentley, umbrella holder turned men's accessories entrepreneur, which means you had Gothamist at the Real World, MTV.
