'Every summer, thousands of hopefuls apply for assistant positions. The chances of landing them are slim. And finding the perfect fit? Even slimmer.'
That's the voice-over for the intro of The Fashionista Diaries, the new reality show from the creators of The Hills that debuted last night on SoapNet. The show revolves around six assistants trying to make it in the fashion industry and assigned to three different companies: Flirt Cosmetics, Seven House PR, and Jane magazine (R.I.P.). The girls at Flirt are capable and boring. The girl assigned to Jane is the most likable. The second Jane assistant is Andrew, who says he got into fashion to meet girls. Except, he has sculpted eyebrows. (You do the math). The best part of the show, however, is the interplay between Nicole (the fish-out-of-water, real-life Ugly Betty from Queens) and Bridget (the pretty, thin, privileged socialite), both of whom work at Seven House PR for Mandie Erickson, a woman who really can only be described in two words: Cunt Face. See for yourselves, above.
