New York Reality Shows

New York is an exceptional city and its essence has been immortalized in Michael Montgomery’s iconic song New York, New York. Its unmistakable skyline is recognizable in countless movies and TV shows and has become home to record-setting, rating-grabbling reality TV shows. Just like the hugely successful Million Dollar Listing Los Angeles featured previously on 360 Magazine, the following rank as the top three and most popular of their respective franchises under reality TV shows based in New York.

Say Yes to The Dress

TLC’s famous reality show, which debuted in 2007, revolves around New York’s swanky bridal salon, Kleinfeld, owned by Mara Urshel and Ronald Rothstein. The show follows soon-to-be brides in choosing their dream wedding dress. While accompanied by friends and family, they are waited on by the store’s consultants and fitters. To be featured on the show, future brides must provide countless personal details, including the fiancée’s occupation and information about the upcoming wedding for dramatic purposes.

Due to the success of the show, Kleinfeld has become a tourist hotspot with fans flocking from all over to check out the store and try on dresses despite upcoming marriage plans. In-person, the store appears quite different than on the show, with the small salon packed with 20 or so brides crowding for dresses. With only 90 minutes to choose the perfect dress, brides who aren’t even in front of the camera feel the pressure.

Million Dollar Listing New York

In its seventh season, Bravo’s popular New York real-estate reality TV program features what it truly means to sell high-priced New York City properties. Hosted by New York brokers Fredrik Eklund, Ryan Serhant and Steve Gold, the series has become a massive hit with viewers who live vicariously through the show and dream of owning a high-end New York apartment. With the wide exposure, the show has seen the hosts’ careers fast-tracked immensely. As for Ryan Serhant and Steve Gold, it has brought both fame and fortune.

Serhant was ranked 15th on The Real Deal’s top agents when the show debuted in 2012, and is now listed as number 1 for Manhattan closed deals. With Manhattan apartments getting more expensive each year, broker commissions have also soared. Yoreevo reports that New York commissions have gone up 50% in the last decade despite the increased information transparency. It’s no wonder that the show’s exposure has exponentially benefitted the trio – Steve Gold landing a job with coveted brokerage firm, Corcoran Group.

The Real Housewives of New York

In what has been described as 10 seasons of catfights, wine swigging, and backstabbing, the Bravo show’s popularity stems from its intentional and unintentional humor. The Real Housewives of New York (RHONY) features 7 female socialites while focusing on their personal and professional lives. Originally a spin-off of The Real Housewives of Orange County, the 13th season premiered July 16. Executive producer, Andy Cohen told Vanity Fair that the show “…is stuff no one could script. It’d be considered too absurd.” This is exactly what the series feels like, absurd, with storylines that often defy belief. Although, it was RHONY’s mercurial cast and over-the-top drama which has propelled the franchise to the grand following it has today.

“Growing Pains” Lyrics:
(verse 1)
Make my way through the motions
I try to ignore it
But home’s looking farther the closer I get
Don’t know why I can’t see the end
Is it over yet?

A short leash and a short fuse
Don’t match
They tell me it ain’t that bad
“now, don’t you overreact”
So I just hold my breath
Don’t know why I can’t see the sun
When young should be fun

(Pre-chorus)
And I guess the bad can get better
Gotta be wrong before it’s right
Every happy phrase engraved in my mind
And I’ve always been a go-getter
There’s truth in every word I write
But still the growing pains, growing pains
They’re keeping me up at night

(Chorus)
(hey hey x8)
And I can’t hide
‘cause growing pains are keeping me up
at night (x2)

(verse 2)
Try to mend what’s left
Of my content incomprehension
As I take on the stress
Of the mess that I’ve made
Don’t know if I even care for “grown”
If it’s just alone

(pre chorus)
(chorus)

(Bridge)
It’s starting to look like
Ms. Know-it-All can’t take her own advice
Can’t find
Pieces of my peace of mind
I Cry
More than I want to admit but I can’t lie
To myself, to anyone
Cause phoning it in isn’t any fun
Cant run
Back to my youth the way I want to
The days my brother was quicker to fool
AM radio, not much to do
Used monsters as an excuse
To lie awake
Now that monsters are the ones that I
Have to face
No band-aids for the growing pains

GGG Does It Again

By: Rana Salloom and Maria Campos 

As the sun set over the horizon in Southern California, the energy at the StubHub Center was enveloped by excitement as fans chanted, “Triple GGG, Triple GGG.” This sensational boxer is the middleweight Champion of the World and tonight’s fight against Martirosyan is a continuation of all his hard work. Despite the cancelation of his scheduled fight against Canelo Alvarez, that was set for Cinco de Mayo. Being the peoples champ, his team and The Chivas Fight Club, decided to set an unprecedented fight against Martirosyan to give his fans the fight they deserve. This fight was not only for his fans, but also a champaign to inspire individuals to have a fighting spirit.

Attendees were treated to an aged-whiskey tasting at the Tunnel Club hosted by The Chivas Fight Club. After the VIP pre-party, attendees congregated over to the stadium where the boxing tournament was being held. The crowd waited in anticipation as the women’s tournament ended and the officials set up for the main event, Triple GGG vs Martirosyan. Fans cheered as the announcers spoke over the loud speaker and introduced the fighters onto the stage. Martirosyan walked into the ring first as Triple GGG followed.

The action began, as Triple GGG gave his opponent, Martirosyan, jabs to the upper and lower body. The audience was in awe as Martirosyan responded with a right-left hook. This did little to nothing to Triple GGG as he responded by hitting his opponents midsection. This weakened Martirosyan as he moved along the ring. After a few more hits to and from the upper and lower body Triple GGG went for the jugular and knocked out Martirosyan in the second round.

Fans chanted with joy as the middleweight Champion of the World retrieved to his throne and proved once again why he is a force to be reckoned with.

APPLE MUSIC TO BAZZI: I Just Had to Let you Know You’re Mine

“Bazzi’s fine sense of melody and honest storytelling capture a singular, genre-defying vision that is truly one of a kind,” said Timmermans. “He is without a doubt one of the biggest and most important new pop artists to emerge in 2018.”

This spring Bazzi will join Camilla Cabello as a special guest on the singer’s sold-out Never Be The Same Tour.

“When I first listened to ‘Mine’, it stood out from everything that was out- it sounded so honest and original and coming straight from his heart,” Cabello said. “I listened to all of his songs after that and was hooked! I think he has such an original style and it sounds so effortless for him. I think he’s a breath of fresh air in pop music and it’s been so amazing to introduce him to my fans on tour.”

My Name Is Mars x Capital Cities

As March draws to a close, Capital Cities return with a single that takes the point of view of the Roman god the month was named for. Released today by Lazy Hooks/Capitol Records, “My Name Is Mars” blends an operatic chant with funky beats and a vocal appearance by Los Angeles-based rapper Sacha. The track is available for download and streaming HERE.

 

While making no apologies for his violent nature, the god of war exhibits an unexpected sense of humor with lyrics like: “Bulletproof vest, I’m well-dressed/I start the car and I start a war/I throw my spear sincerely/You come near, you pay dearly. »

 

Image remixes for the “My Name is Mars” lyric video, which can be seen HERE, were provided by the PicsArt global community. PicsArt is the world’s largest photo editing and sharing platform with a community of 100 million+ monthly active users and influencers. Learn more or download the app.
