Well, initially I had no idea what to expect after five months of filming for NYC Prep! While watching, certain parts surprised me. However, I was completely aware of what I signed up for and in my positive mindset, chose to focus on the good. Emotionally, there were many laughs and jaw-dropping moments, as I was able to also watch the other cast members and their experiences. As a viewer, who was there for the live footage, I found certain moments very comical seeing how they turned out on TV! I was very happy they showed a snippet of me singing, which for me, was the primary reason for doing the show! So I’m glad there was some focus on that.
There is some validity to NYC being all about connections, however it does feel good to accomplish something on your own terms, rather than having to “pull strings." However, in terms of singing, connections can be very helpful. Growing up in the Hamptons was an amazing experience, but my parents decided to move my brother and me back to New York City last year. I wasn’t really sure what to expect, but I was excited. One thing that wasn’t revealed was that I wasn’t raised a private school girl. I’m able to relate to cast members who receive their educations from both public and private schools, although I still find that kids are kids, no matter what. As far as what it would be like to live independently with my brother, I have to be honest- I don’t know, because that is not the situation I’m in despite how it may seem. Out of all of my friends, I feel like I have the strictest parents! - IRONIC- I’m often grounded, which you see in the first episode!
hey kelli! i absolutely love you on the show haha! you in my opinion have one of the bests senses of fashion. can't wait for the next episode!
Kelli, I loved you on the 1st Episode of NYC! you are such a talented, charismatic, and real person. congratulations on your bright new career. I hope you go far, you definitely deserve it! xoxoxoxo p.s. YOUR STYLE IS TO DIE FOR!!!!
I Find it a little strange that you thing your parents are strict! I was also raised with privilege, but there was also discipline and my mother would never let me live alone at the age of sixteen whether it was with one of my older siblings or not. I was born and raised in NYC and I have been around i have worked my butt off! and I do not think being dramatic and drinking on the weekends is a reward. I just think that maybe you young people who are on television and have the power to effect change should be focused on more positive things then who is wearing what? and who is dating who? Be Productive !!
you are amazing on the show. keep following your dreams of singing, because you are excellent. im excited to see what happens next with you.
PS, even if Sebastian is totally gorgeous, do NOT fall for his tricks. it seems like he has a certain strategy with girls, and they are like putty in his hands. ive fallen for guys like him, sooo not worth it. you can do much better :)
hi kelli ur just like me i also dated a boy mauricio and my cousin is going out with him so i know how u feel
Kelli that is awesome that you get to live alone with your brother in NYC, you are such a cool person and definitely attractive.
your family situation is not weird...we wont call ACS...lol You are very real...good luck with show and your singing career!!!
I really think that you are a great person and I really think highly of that! I live in Chicago and think that the way things work in New York are the same in Chicago! I am very independent and would love to have my own apartment. I will be going to a public high school next year and can not wait! I have always begged my mom to let me go to a private school (preferably NOT catholic) but she always says that the school distric we live in is one of the highest in our area. I love your style SO much!! For the short clip of you singing you sound fantastic!! You will go SO far!!
kelli, u are definately my fave on the show..but i needed to say somethings and i havent quite figured out the message boards yet. It pissed me off when jessie got upset about there being a "real life gossip girl". no crap!!! i go to a private prep school too and we have a "real gossip girl" and "real gossip boy". stuff happens and people find out. BUT KELLI UR FERSHER MY FAVE
First impression: you've got a heck of a head on your shoulders for a girl your age. I read the blogs belonging to the other cast members, and you all seem to have tremendous qualities. But I have to admit, you seem to be the most intelligent, grounded, open-minded of the crowd and will be able to go very far in this world. Your family seems to be supportive, trusting and stable. Your attitude about where you fit in 'the crowd' is extremely healthy. What's more, your sentence structure and grammar is equivalent to that of someone who's got about six years more education than you do. I can't wait to see how far you go!
Oh: FYI, this is coming from a girl who was the ugly, socially awkward nerd in high school. I have to admit, well-rounded individuals like you don't come around very often, at least around me. Thanks for making NYC Prep so entertaining.
You are the prettiest person on the show and can sing very well. Um the other girls Sebastian would talk to made me laugh because he could have you and hes an idiot (goodlooking though) but thats just my opinion. Oh and you can sing really well I hope you get signed i would get your CD haha :]
Hey kelli, You make the show so much more interesting. You are definitely, by far, my favorite out of all the other cast.
Ur definetly[sp] my favorite on the show i'm a kid myself lol i'm 15 boy too! U rlly do have an amazing singing voice, so good luck with your career! Also u r very pretty bye.
Hi Kelli u r definitely[sp] my favorite i'm also in high school 15 boy too lol. U have an amazing singing voice, so i hope u have a very successful singing career.Also u r very pretty and cool.
Hello Kelly, I'm watching an episode for the first time...right now. My first impression is that you have a good head on your shoulders and seem grounded in comparison to others on the show. Do you feel that cast members of NYC Prep would fit into the DFW Prep [Dallas and Fort Worth, TX Prep] scene? How important of a role do you feel that the culture of New York City plays into the development of students in either private or public students?
When you get some free time, I would like to know your thoughts. Thanks.RonieSue.
Hey kelli so the first episode was GOOD and so was your singing ,you are my favorite of the cast i feel like we have stuff in common haha Love the fact that in Ny has so much freedom and LOVE ur style where do u shop
hey kelli ! i absolutely love you can Camille as a team on the show..and please promise us viewers that you will show PC who's boss. Another thing, make sure you keep Sebastian just as a friend becuase he is soo extreamely sketchy, and he obviously only wants one thing. you rock kelli and your super cool!!
Kelli: I luv ur awesome vibe and how your are responsible enough to live on your own. I think your strong friendship with Camille only makes you two girls even better than you were before. I must also admit that at this moment, you are the prettiest and best on the show. Everyone is saying that you and Camille happen to be the new like IDK bravo's version of Sel and Demi! Don't let mean girls like Jesse, PC( the male version if he really is a male), and Taylor put you down. Sebastion by the way is totally into you and you guys should so hook up.
Hi Kelli I just watched the first episode of the show (DVR) and I have to say my friends and I all love you the most. We feel like we can relate to you and that other teens will too whether they went to private school or public school- and thats cool! Your voice sounded so pretty when you sang I was sad it was only one line- I'm hoping we will hear more of your voice soon! Congrats and can't wait for Tuesday. PS- You are way to cool for Sebastian, but I see why all the boys like you and my brother has a little crush it seems too. hahaha xoxoxox
You totally rock and should not worry about PC. You have so much going for you. You are stylish, pretty, smart, friendly, and very very very cool.
KEEP ON ROCKING!!!!
Kelli, You are BY FAR the best on the show. You have alot going for you. PC doesn't even deserve to be in the same room with you. He should just continue to let Jessie chase him. They are a perfect match. Good Luck, you rock!
Kelli, I thought you were great on the first episode of NYC prep. I love your style. By the way, where did you get that purple bag that you were carrying while you were out shopping with Sebastian?
I thought it was great the way you both reacted to the smoking question. PC showed how young he was by equating smoking with age. You guys looked at him like he was nuts for thinking you would waste money on a nasty habit that makes you smell bad and look stupid.
kelli, you're the only one who sees PC for being a jerk and that's funny-nice work oh and you're not overly dramatic on things that the rest of the cast is, PC and Jessie seem like they're trying to be on gossip girl but you just seem like you're doing your normal stuff
Hey Kelli! At first I had a bad impression of you but you seem really cool. I'm glad you are on the show! I just hope it gets more interesting! Make it more interesting haha. I'm from NYC too so I'm not all like trying to sound like I'm a super excited girl who lives in the middle of nowhere
I came across this show by accident. I'm not sure I'l continue to watch it because I'm really too old for this stuff... But I have to say, I think you'll have a very bright future no matter what you do (NOT because of your parent's money or "connections", but because of who you are). You are so intelligent, well spoken, insightful, and creative. You have more common sense than many people twice your age. That's the stuff money can't buy! Good luck with your life!
Hi Kelli, first off I just want to say how great you are (:. Your defientley my favorite on the show. You stay just the way you are and don't let the other girls put you down. Way to be a role-model (: . p.s I love your name (; mines Kelly too just spelled with a y instead of an i. If you can email me - email@example.com . Your the best, keep it up (:
So I just watched my first episode of NYC Prep, and I was in a Communications class with Kelli's sister Chelsy Fall '08. It was pretty funny to watch the show, and see somebody I know!!
Hi kelli! I love your show! Your the main reason why I watch it! You are soo pretty/beautiful!
If you ever have a CD out I would totally buy a copy!
Kelli you are my fav character on the show. I think you and sebastian together are much cuter than him and taylor i just dont think they make a good couple. You and sebastian are definantly a better match because it looks like you guys have alot of fun together and thats good for a relationship. Taylor should stick to cole sebastian is not the right guy for her. And im sorry about your dog :(
Kelli, you are a Beautiful* girl with an incredible voice! I additionally went to prep/boarding school, and understand the pressures... I've watched only a bit of the show... I wish you would be more confident in yourself, and speak strongly. I hope for you to maintain your sweetness, and sincerity... don't change that. I have a love-hate moment with the scene when you and Camille are at the spa and discussing gossip- I was so beyond thrilled to hear you say "Im not a gossiper.." I hated Camilles reaction.. Additionally I hope that you've moved beyond Sebastian...if you haven't, get yourself tested; people with money can* catch std's too.. Don't compromise who you are, and don't get too caught up in money...anyone* can make money..being smug based on money is not becoming...case and point, take a look at some of your cast mates... Goodluck Sweetheart
Kelli, I have to say that I wasn't impressed with you in the first episode, but I'm happy to say I was completely mistaken and changed my mind considerably with subsequent ones. I do think you have a crush on Sebastian (he's definitely NOT good enough for you as he is a player extraordinaire) but you are being smart by saying you're just "friends" now if you could just believe it. I'm also happy to read your blog and find out what appears to be irresponsible parents on the show is completely miscontrued. Knowing that your father is "being a father" during the week and not leaving you and your brother to your own devices makes all the difference. I love how you respect and value your family (as displayed when you are filmed in the Hamptons with your whole family). Keep grounded and good luck with the singing...don't get distracted by money or fame, do things because you love them and they make you happy.
