Executive Producer Lenid Rolov blogs from the perspective of PC and Jessie!

Jul 21, 20090

I wanted to start this week by congratulating our production coordinator, Dena Twain, on her engagement to Tim. Dena is one of the loveliest folks I have ever had the honor of working with and Tim is a lucky dude. Yaay Dena!

There have been a lot of requests in the comments section for PC and Jessie to blog so I’m going to write this blog from their prespective. Hopefully this will appease some of you (and if not… I tried). So here goes…

JESSIE:

Hey guys. This was one of my favorites so far because the producers finally went into my goals and ambitions… and more importantly you got to meet my Mom (how cool is she!). My Mom’s having such a tough time dealing with me graduating high school and leaving home. We’re like best friends so it’s going to be tough on us both. I’m very lucky to have known that I want to do marketing and public relations for fashion ever since I can remember, which has allowed me to jumpstart my career even while I’m still in high school. The interview I had to endure to work for Charlotte Ronson was brutal (love you Matt)! I had no idea it was going to be a group interview and so high pressure. Plus I was in a room competing with girls way older then me. But I knew in my heart I wanted that job and could do it better then any of them.

I'm having lots of fun watching the episodes here in Brazil. I really thought this "Gossip Girl" atmosphere was merely fiction. It's a completely different and ackward world these kids are living, I'm glad to know I haven't seen everything in my life yet.

I think it's stupid that you are having to blog for both PC and Jessie. Why are they even on the show if they don't blog?????????

Is everyone in space here? Jessie- here's a note from a person who was popular in highschool-your attitude is being viewed as an insecurity to cover the lack of beauty you posses. Yes I'll say what I'm thinking because you have no problem doing it. You look like a lion with a horrible smile and you're even uglier because you choose to treat people like they are beneath you. I feel truly sorry for the for you because your lifeless parents didn't give you a chance to survive the real world. People like you are eaten in college and usually go through depression your whole life. Learn respect for other people. You don't deserve FIT. I know people who have a strong desire and much more experience, but of course someone who lacks fashion but has money can get in to FIT. FIT students are going to eat you alive. Everytime I watched this show, I'd fast forward your appearances.

I swore to myself I was not going to become addicted to another Bravo reality show and when I saw the previews for NYC Prep, I was not going to watch it....and here I am commenting on blogs. I absolutely loved this show and I do agree with the other bloggers that Jessie and PC really did make this show. As annoying as I thought Jessie was, and obnoxious as I thought PC was I really miss watching them. I agree with the other viewers when they say that PC could get his own show. I would love to watch him continue on his journey of finding himself. I thought all the kids on here could make great role models for teens .They are very motivated and know what they want in life.

I really like this show, but it wouln't be the same without Jesse and most importantly, P.C. They make the show work. Because of them the show has some sort of depth to it because everyone else is just wayy too young. I hope to see them back next season somehow (although I find that doubtfull)because they're really awsome and fun to watch.

Jessie,

Really dug you on the show. You were completely honest in your portrayol of yourself on the show. I respected that. I know you will go far in life. Just keep doing what your doing. Keeping your eyes straight a head on the road, and working your tail off(like your fashion show for Operation Smile). Great job on that. Best of luck to you Jessie. God bless.

The only, ONLY reason I watched that tedious mess of a show is for PC. I hated him within the first 5 minutes of the first episode but than I grew to love him the rest of the season. I adore him and I agree with everyone on here who says he deserves his own show. There's so much more to him and guys didn't scratch the surface. He made NYC Prep worth watching because everything else about everyone else was just so painfully, achingly boring and played out. Thanks for trying though. More PC please!!

I hope your next show will have more mature people on it. The characters on this show are really too young - it really grew to be tiresome to watch.

I love this show! Camille is a great role model for young girls. She sets the bar high for herself academically and nothing gets in her way. Kelly is a doll, best of luck to her in her singing career. Taylor is cute and a little naive, but who wasn't at fifteen? Sebastian just annoys me. He'd better enjoy the hair while it lasts. PC is super hot, I love the eyeliner. While he does seem a little abrasive (that's putting it mildly) at times, he still has a strange appeal about him. Who can blame Jessie for being in love with him? Jessie's life is uber enviable. She is a high-schooler interviewing for internships that most people couldn't get until their junior year of college. Jessie is ambitious, elegant, and has the smarts to go far. She and PC obviously have chemistry. Their scenes together are the best. Bring back a second season Bravo. Maybe you could drop some(or all) of the Real Housewives programs and replace them with spin-offs for PC and Jessie. Just an idea.

Agree with the comment that it seems obvious Jesse is in love with PC. Lucky for her, he's so open about his orientation that she isn't going to be misled as what their future can be.

Yeah! I agree with some other posters...Bravo should give PC his own show!! That would be awesome.

~~~ PC and Jessie are, hands down, the reason why the show was great!

~~~ Bravo should seriously consider giving PC his own show. Bill it as a chance to show PC growing and not playing into the Upper East Side stereotype. It may even be a spring board for acting. Jessie should be included as well. She is the glue!

I read somewhere that there will be no NYC Prep reunion show. Is this true and if so, what is up with that? Bravo always has a reunion show after the season ends and that would really suck for all the loyal viewers out there like myself. I hope that Bravo will have a reunion show and give the viewers what they deserve.

Also, I would totally watch a spin-off show of PC, he was a total riot and by far the most entertaining person to watch all season.

Regardless of the entertainment value that PC has to offer, it saddens me to think that he equates his New York experiences to maturity and responsibility. It is apparent that he struggles with both. I hope that he finds some true guidance so he could find them and not struggle well into adulthood.

PC should be told that it is unacceptable to use the “c” word. I hope his mother was watching the show. I suspect that after calling Jessie that word several times on national TV they are not so friendly anymore.

It's obvious that Jessie is in love with PC. PC is in love with PC.

The Texas comment PC made was rude. I was born & raised in Texas and am proud to be a Texan. PC may have the money but from watching the show it obviously can't buy happiness. Where would you get the idea that Texas girls are any different from NYC girls?

The show is very entertaining. It allows others to see how the rich live. I wonder if Bravo would ever consider doing a show on REAL teenagers. The teenagers who cannot take part in after school activities because they must work to help support their families. The teenagers who work very hard to raise money for their chartities or community and never expect it to show on a college transcript( Camille). The teenagers who go out of their way to befriend a lonely peer or a fellow student dealing with a disability. The teenagers who do not drink or do drugs because they are ILLEGAL. These are our unsung heros. They will be the future adults that show random acts of kindness and compassion. They will make the world a better place to live. I am proud to say, I work in a high school and encounter these angels all the time.

Jesse, I found you to be an interesting person and it would have been nice to see you interact in a more positive way with your co-stars, with the exception of PC of course. Your lack of attempting to befriend anyone outside of your own social circle only revealed the insecure side of your persona. I wasn't buying the, "It's my senior year and I don't want to make any more friends" excuse. Instead, I felt that throughout the season of the show, perhaps you were threatened by your female co-stars.

PC, Boy!!...You Be Leave'n on that Midnight Train...HOO HOO!! I think we all enjoyed getting to know you. You weren't afraid to speak candidly, yet you left viewers with enough mystery wanting to know more. You couldn't have played a better PC!!

Good luck to the cast of "real characters" who were featured on NYC Prep!! This was an interesting and fun show...so, Bravo!! To all of you, I wish only the best and brightest futures!!

I have actually come to really like PC & Jessie! I wish them all the success and happiness in the world. If there is going to be a second season I think you should definitely include them...even though they wouldn't be in a prep school anymore...they made the show! I thought the finale was perfect!!

The scene with PC and Jessie by the water when he talks about their friendship was one of the most moving things I've ever seen on reality TV. Lenid you were right.. PC I wish you and your heart of gold all the best!

Having watched all of the episodes, one wonders what will the Bravo network find interesting enough to pitch "NYC Prep" Season 2??? Let's face it, Peter Cary Peterson was your show, the only one worth tuning for every Tuesday. Despite all of the bashing and critism this young man received, he was - singlehandedly - if not the most conflicted, most intelligent, articulate, charming and poised. PC may have been the oldest cast member, but he is only 18!!! What were we at 18???

Peter, the world is your oyster. Live your life to the fullest, pursue your dreams, find yourself and always, always, always follow your bliss. YOU WILL BE MISSED.

Why doesn't anyone on the cast ever blog? It's kind of annoying, I wish they'd blog mor eso the viewers could watch the episodes from their perspectives but oh well...anyways I can't wait for the next season!

Great job Jesse I think your Event was great. I also agreed with you on Camille it was her responsbility to follow through when she's working on Operation Smile is she going to be waiting for people to tell her what to do.

I really like PC and I think he is so hot...but the reason why he and Jessie get so mad at each other is because the chemistry between them is tyt...they really like each other and the fact that PC wants to move to LA is good coz they will have sometime apart and think about their relationship..I CAN NOT WAIT FOR THE NEXT SEASON!!!!

I realize I'm a different generation than these kids but isn't there some way to diminish or even stop the use of the word "like"? I mean it is SO irritating that these kids can't speak without using the word "like" like a million times a like minute! I mean can't they like see and like hear like all those "likes"? Like it's like driving me like CRAZY! I enjoy like watching the like show but if I like keep like hearing the like "like" word every like half minute I like won't even like be able to like stand like watching the like show. Do I like get my like point like across?

I was watching on of the episodes today and PC made a comment that made me very very mad!! PC said that h didn't want to dance with son girs at a bar in Cancun because they where from Texas. When he was asked why he said, "They were from Texas. That is all I am going to say; Texas, Texas, Texas." What is wrong with Texas?? I was born and raised in Texas. What is the big deal? I would like to know what y'all think ant that comment. What is wrong with Texas?

Jessie keeps talking about how she is PC's friend and wants to help him, but she is going about it in the most selfish way possible. PC is clearly struggling with the biggest issue he has ever faced -- his sexuality. He really needs someone to talk to, and if Jessie is, in fact, his best friend it should be her. But just when it seems he is getting ready to open up to her, she makes comments like "Are you GAY?" like it's a huge insult, and you see his heart break and he closes back up. Jessie -- if you are ~really~ PC's friend, accept him and love him for who he is -- don't spend so much time trying to make him into who you WANT him to be.

PC! I remembered what you said to your therapist about not doing something unless you are the best at it and i found this quote that i thought you would like "Use whatever talents you posess, for if the only birds that sang were the best, the woods would be very quiet." Hope it helps!

I agree there is too much given away in the recaps and before the commercials, it seems that all reality shows are doing this and it is so annoying, I DVR them all now and shoot past that crap and the commercials. I don't mind the commercials, but i do mind seeing a whole scene before i actually "see" it. Please get those two to blog on their own, this is weird. Are they just too lazy?

Ummm..I kinda wanna know what PC and Jessie think about this attempt to blog from "their perspective."

Jessie: Good for you girl! already landing jobs in the fashion world is an accomplishment, you will go far :) Oh Der PC: What to tell you..... I think California will be good for your for a break... then go to Europe... it seems that the world is not enough for you... in a way that is good since you want to broad your horizons... Good luck in everything you do :)

Dear Camille: Love your go getter attitude about Harvard! Go get it, don't let anyone stop you, love you :)

Kelli: Love your voice sweetie, you are blessed, I hope your dreams of beooming a famous singer comes true, Good Luck.

Taylor: Swettie, hit the books more, cut some extra curricular activities, (including boyfriends - specially if they are like Cole, too possessive and so young!) you have your life ahead of you; enough time to date. Good luck.

Sebastian: Well, love the hair but need to grow up a little, hit the books more and start thinking about College, Good luck

Jessie, it appears that the reason you "save" PC is because you still have romantic feelings for him, HOWEVER, I think he is into guys and not girls (at all) and you need to make a clean break to get over him.

PC, I think it might do you well to move to Los Angeles as it appears you need a clean break as well.

Good luck to all of you.

Hmmm ... after watching all episodes, it doesn't shock me that most of the preps don't blog ... after all they have no time for common, non-prep, folk. I suppose that it can be said that they all deserve each other.

jessie should really blog.... maybe say the latest gossip thats going around?!?!? PC should be more grateful for everything that jessie did for him,she saved his ass way too many times.... they are perfect friends but i dont see them dating.... yet.... PC shouldnt just talk to taylor cause he wants to make her a pet project but what can you expect from PC.Well taylor is pretty but not his type... she should be dating sebastian!!!!

I enjoy watching P.C. and Jessie more than anyone else on this show. I have to agree though, if they don't have the desire to blog then I'd rather just hear your perspective.

NYC prep has alot of good footage but the editing needs to be handled by a different photog or whoever does the package. Alot of the scenes are shown two or three times in one episode after another. My friends got confused cause the same museum scene w/sebastian and camille were shown on the last episode and then the same scene repeated in a new episode but we changed the channel because we thought it was a rerun to see the same footage from the week before. We would like to see new stuff, that is why yall have recaps before the episode starts, DONT PUT LAST WEEKS SCENES IN WHATS SUPPOSE TO BE A NEW EPISODE!
