So You Wanna Be a Star–in Manhattan? Here’s Your 15 Minutes of Fame…

Real Housewives of NYCYou’ve seen them on TV: The Real Housewives of NYC. They diss each other. They dish others. And they shop, shop, shop. Then they diss each other some more.

In Bronx accents.

And the occasional Queens brogue.

If you are a borough babe or a Manhattan madamoiselle, here’s your chance to get into the act. Turns out that the producers of the Real Housewives of NYC are casting sexy, single women for their new season.

Granted, Alex, Bethany, Jill, Luann and Ramona aren’t exactly Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte and Miranda. The quest of the perfect Manolo may be the same, but to my ear, the accents throw off the whole scenario. Nobu isn’t Cafe Omar in Flatbush. Show Gotham some respect, okay?

And that’s where you come in. You’re classy. You’re from the right side of the tracks. You know which fork to use when the salad arrives.

And you’re on a first name basis with the shopgirls at Bergdorf.

Okay, now for your reality check:
