A Twitterific Breakdown Of NYC Prep From A REAL One: Ariel Moses

by CARSON GRIFFITH · June 24, 2009

ariel2-57x125Even though born and bred Upper East Sider Ariel Moses swore she would never watch the inane Bravo show NYC Prep, I somehow talked the Horace Mann and Columbia educated New Yorker into submitting herself to the incessant nonsense that is the Gossip Girl knock-off. Afterall, being a transplant, I could never fully understand what these kids were talking about (besides that they sounded like absolute idiots... am I allowed to say that about 16 year olds?). And what better way for Ariel to express her true feelings about the "real"ity show than on Twitter!

C'mon guys! Of course! Her tweets just progressively get better as she gets more and more aggravated at the inaccuracy of the prep school portrayal and the... "characters". We're almost satisfied with the tweet-up, Ariel. Almost. But you left what could potentially be the most important part of this ENTIRE episode out: The cameo by Kristian Lalibarte.

But let's not be too hard on the guy for associating with the NYC Prep crew. Maybe he's always wanted to make an appearance on a Bravo reality television show. I know I have. Unfortunately, I don't make it over to New Jersey enough to try to get on set with Theresa, Danielle and the rest of the Real Housewives. Drats. Now, let's get down to business. And scene:

I'm not sure if Ariel will be willing to subject herself to another hour of this mind-numbing nonsense next week (and I'm not sure I can do it either), but if so, I'm hoping I can convince her to hop back on her Twitter for another all out tweet-sesh between 10pm - I hope my power goes out (EST).
