Vancouver reality TV show seeks ‘ultra-rich Asian divas’

TV producers are seeking “divas” to star in a new reality show about “ultra-rich Asian girls” in Vancouver.

The show’s proposed name HBICtv, stands for “hot bitch in charge”. In a posting on the show’s Facebook page, Veyron Media announced a June 26 casting call.

“Are you the next #HBIC of Vancouver? Centurion Black Amex Card? Hermes, Lanvin, Dior, Louboutin, Chanel, Lambos and Ferraris are all a part of the daily lives of our HBICtv Divas,” the producers announced.

A promotional trailer for the show uploaded on Sunday shows young Putonghua-speaking women bragging about their lives of material excess as they buy jewellery, attend fashion shows and swig pink champagne from the bottle. The executive producers of the show are identified as Kevin K. Li and Desmond Chen.

“As long as we have fun, who cares about spending a little bit of money,” says one young woman, named as Crystal Chen on the trailer.

It’s unclear whether the young women featured on the trailer are actual “ultra-rich Asian girls” who have already been cast in the show, or actresses.

In other scenes from the trailer, the women wander around Vancouver nightspots and criticise each other’s fashion choices, plastic surgery and personal qualities. “I rely on my confidence to be beautiful,” says Chen, as she mocks a fellow diva’s blue Michael Kors handbag. “Other people who worry about carrying Michael Kors don’t have my confidence.”

The show comes after last year’s cancellation of Real Housewives of Vancouver. The reality show produced by Shaw Media lasted only two seasons.

This is so very lame............no rich girls would really be on this show...........all the 'b's are just fake actresses.

Just a sick Anglo show that will end up with the s l u t s being blackmailed or worse. Why not get the rich Anglo s l u t s like Paris Hilton and the Kardashians that love to expose their b o o b s and backsides and **** s.

Where's the "N" sticker on her Ferrari to show she's an inexperienced driver who doesn't know how to drive with a standard transmission?
I hope this show never sees the light of day... Then again Bravo and its Canadian equivalent, Slice will put any mindless garbage on TV...
