We have a first look at the new series which will follow the lives of six young women, all living out their dreams in Paris.
Get ready to pack your bags and say “Ooh la la” because this September Bravo is heading to Paris for its latest series, Real Girlfriends in Paris.
Real Girlfriends in Paris will take viewers to the chic, romantic, and glamorous City of Light to follow the lives of six young women: Anya Firestone, Emily Gorelik, Margaux Lignel, Kacey Margo, Adja Toure, and Victoria Zito. The women are all American ex-pats who are living their best lives and chasing their ultimate dreams, while navigating careers, romantic rendezvous, and unavoidable conflicts, and discovering along the way who they are meant to be and exactly what they want.
“Paris is everything,” and you can see why in the first look at the series above.

Get to know the cast a little better below, per the press release!
Anya Firestone is an artistic, bubbly, and resilient woman who loves all things French culture. She has lived in Paris on and off for the past decade, has a master’s degree in French cultural studies, and is licensed by the French government to give tours at every historical and cultural venue in Paris. As an inventive hostess, she often has gatherings and weekly Shabbat dinners in the Parisian apartment she shares with her fiancé, Mathieu, and their precious pup, Zsa Zsa. Anya exudes her quirky personality everywhere she goes, and her affectionate presence makes her the go-to shoulder to lean on when the ladies are feeling homesick or needing advice.
Born and raised in New Jersey, Emily Gorelik visited France while attending NYU and decided she was going to stay. She has lived in Paris for two years, and while she is still perfecting her French, she prides herself in knowing enough to order in cafés, date French boys, and of course, shop. Emily is pursuing a degree in luxury design management with the dream of bringing her mom’s interior design brand to Paris. When presented with a once-in-a-lifetime fashion internship, however, she is faced with the decision of following her parents’ path or creating her own.
Kacey Margo is a Southern California native who traveled to Paris while taking a semester off from college. Bitten by the Parisian bug, she fell in love with the culture and quickly secured a temporary role as an English teacher in a French classroom. The instability of her work situation forced her to bounce between Paris, L.A., and New York for a few years, but she has recently returned to the City of Light and is determined to stay. Unfortunately, complications with her visa could get in the way.
Margaux Lignel is a free spirit looking for love, fun, and lasting friendships. She has been educated at some of the best schools in the world, including the American School in Paris, FIT, and the Condé Nast College of Fashion and Design. Born to French parents in New York, she spent most of her formative years traveling back and forth to Paris, and she just moved into a new apartment in the 5th arrondissement. Margaux is yearning to chart her own path, on her own terms, and she is figuring out exactly what she wants to do next.
Adja Toure is a high achiever with an Ivy League degree from Cornell. After visiting Paris while growing up, she dreamed of returning as an adult. With her family scattered across the country, she always felt at home in France. Fatigued by her current job, Adja begins to consider a career pivot into the beauty space. While putting this next phase in motion, she dips her toe into the dating scene but needs to combat her trust issues first.
Victoria Zito is a small-town girl with big fashion dreams. Born and raised in Texas, Victoria was always encouraged by her mother to stay close to home and stick to what she knows. With a burning passion for fashion, though, Victoria moved to Paris in 2017 with a scholarship to Parsons and is currently the head designer at nascent fashion brand Chloe Colette. Recently divorced, Victoria is ready to start a new chapter, focus on herself, and explore all the romantic opportunities Paris has to offer.
