Last month brought us this hilarious Craigslist ad, which appeared to be casting a brand new reality TV show based on HBOâ€™s hit Girls. The ad called for applications from any young woman â€śseeking fame, fortune, love or even a hookup with potential.â€ť Now The Cut reports that the first girl has been cast, and sheâ€™s no stranger to fame (well, of the Lifetime variety). Itâ€™s Hailey Glassman, Jon Gosselinâ€™s ex-girlfriend and star of CMTâ€™s Sweet Home Alabama and a Lifetime special, My Life is a Lifetime Movie.
ABC has reportedly picked up the Girls reality series; according to their vision, â€śEach character will be loosely based off one of the characters in the scripted show.â€ť It doesnâ€™t seem like Glassman, whoâ€™s famous for dating a married man and trying to stay famous, has much in common with any of the Girls. Itâ€™ll be interesting to see if ABC tries to mold her into a narcissistic Hannah, a sophisticated Marnie, a naĂŻve Shoshanna or a worldly Jessa.
Lena Dunham, the creator and star of Girls, responded to allegations that she was involved with the reality show, tweeting, â€śPlease do not worry, the Girls inspired reality show has nothing to do with us!â€ť Even though sheâ€™s unaffiliated, weâ€™re sure Dunham will be TiVo-ing this train wreck along with the rest of us.
