Already obsessed with Princesses: Long Island? We hear ya. Have you been trying to describe it your friends? We can relate. So, we thought we'd save you a little bit of time with this cheat sheet. Here’s the good, the bad, and ugly details about this bevy of beauties who wield sharp tongues and daddy’s credit cards like weapons of mass destruction.
She may be only 28, but Chanel is looking to put a ring on it. The Great Neck native is living in the shadow of her younger sister, who is already engaged to be married. This means Chanel feels like an old maid, and that’s a harsh reality in the marriage-heavy world of Long Island. Luckily, Chanel keeps a sense of humor wherever she goes.
A nightlife professional who recently achieved her Masters’ Degree in art education at NYU, Casey splits her time between Long Island and Manhattan. Back in Long Island, she considers her mom her “rock,” and doesn’t know what she’d do without her. But Casey has some controversy in the past with another girl in the Princesses crew: Erica Gimbel.
Things all came to a head in the Hamptons, when the girls sat down for Shabbat dinner.
So what’s the drama between Casey and Erica? It turns out 10 years ago, Erica stole Casey’s boyfriend right before the prom. Casey had even bought a dress already, but Erica ended up going with him. Erica, an Old Westbury native, was known as the hottest girl on Long Island back in high school. Now, she’s a PR and event planning professional with a penchant for partying.
A 26-year-old budding business tycoon who has already landed her dream man. Her boyfriend Jeff, whom she met on the Long Island Rail Road, is her ideal mate and (hopefully) future husband. However, Amanda’s mom Babs isn’t pressuring her to settle down like many other Long Island parents. In fact, Babs isn’t crazy about the idea of Amanda and Jeff’s serious relationship. But that won’t stop the head-strong Amanda! Check out Amanda, Jeff, and Babs as they go for a marathon swimsuit shopping session:
In last night’s episode, Amanda and Jeff shared their love story with Erica and her boyfriend Rob.
The 30-year-old Long-Islander is a hard-working career gal focused on becoming a business tycoon first -- then, maybe a bride. Unlike the rest of the girls, she lives at home with her family, but not because she loves it. In fact, Joey would rather be on her own, but trying to launch her company Kissamint means making some extra cuts in her budget. Joey rolls a little bit differently than the rest of the ladies, but she’s perfectly alright with that.
Last but certainly not least is petite power player Ashlee White. But what she lacks in inches she makes up for in personality! Ashlee lives at home with her parents, and she wouldn’t have it any other way. Unless she meets the man of her dreams, that is. Ashlee is banking on meeting a nice Jewish boy, and being a stay at home mom. The only problem? She has to find him first.
But if you think it’s all lovey-dovey in “Longuyland,” think again. If the season premiere was any indication, this is going to be a wild ride!
Grab a look at what’s going to go down next week!
