See the Banned 'Girlfriends' Guide to Divorce' Ad

The MTA says a promo implies "inappropriate creative."


Girlfriends Guide to Divorce won't hit the small screen until December 2—but it's already stirring up controversy.

A promotional advertisement that was slated to be shown on city buses and inside subway stations in New York City and Los Angeles has been banned by city agencies, the Wrap reports. The reason? It's been deemed "inappropriate."

The print advertisement—pictured above—shows star Lisa Edelstein holding up her ring finger, alongside a tagline that reads "Go Find Yourself." The MTA in New York said the ad implied "inappropriate creative," according to the Wrap. According to the New York Post, the promo was originally approved by the MTA, but later rejected.

Bravo's first scripted series is inspired by the Girlfriends’ Guide book series by Vicki Iovine and follows Abby (played by Edelstein) who shocks the world when she reveals that her seemingly perfect life has all been a lie. The series will also feature Paul Adelstein, Beau Garrett, and Necar Zadegan, plus guest spots from Laverne Cox and Bernadette Peters.
