On 'Fly Girls': More Richard Branson and the Girls Go to New York

April 1, 2010 at 8:14 AM | by | ()

Did you watch the second episode of the new CW show Fly Girls last night? Unlike last week's premiere episode, which was all around more interesting than this week and had many people tweeting about it, we feel like the audience has left as quickly as it came. Nonetheless, we stuck it out through the half-hour show in order to bring you the recap below.

As in the first episode when the five flight attendant stars stressed about the events surrounding the launch of Virgin America's Fort Lauderdale routes, they had a big night to look forward to this episode: Virgin Unite's star-studded charity event called "Rock the Casbah." But before we get into that, we have to say that our hate for Nikole was reinforced tenfold when she sat down with the other girls at the "crash pad" and immediately incited girl talk about "boys" like they were 12 and had nothing else to talk about, and then she proceeded to generalize that all flirty passengers are "schmoozy douchebags."

Continuing on after the jump, another Richard Branson cameo...

On the Premiere Episode of 'Fly Girls': In-Flight Boyfriends and Richard Branson

March 25, 2010 at 8:00 AM | by | ()

So. Did you watch the premiere of Fly Girls last night on the CW? It came on a half-hour earlier than we though—airing at 9pm—even though TV Guide and everything else said 9:30pm, but whatever. It was—for lack of a better word—craptacular. A repeat of the episode will be on again on Friday and the show's second episode comes next Wednesday night, but until then...please enjoy our opinionated recap below.

First, during the opening credits, we are hit with the brand placement. Virgin America planes and even their VA belt buckles are shown up close, and one of the girls walks out of an Aloft Hotel. Past that though, we were relieved to find the show free of other blatant advertisements.

And then we met the girls (left to right in the picture above): Farrah, the blonde sweetheart who we've actually had as a flight attendant on VA before; Louise, the single and ready-to-mingle girl who's quickly becoming the star; Nikole, who we think was cast to play the part of the bitchy Paris Hilton figure who creates drama where there is none; Mandalay (Mandy), who always looks about to cry and is constantly the receiver of Nikole's mean intentions; and Tasha, who has a young son and seems to be the calmest of the group.

Cat fights and "in-flight boyfriends," after the jump!

What Can We Expect On Tonight's Debut Episode of 'Fly Girls?'

March 24, 2010 at 11:45 AM | by | ()

Do you watch Gossip Girl? Whether you do or you don't, you might want to tune into the channel that hosts that show tonight—the CW (or PIX, if you're in NYC)—because it'll be debuting Fly Girls, a semi-reality TV show that follows around five of Virgin America's flight attendants.

The show is only a half-hour in length, and it premieres tonight at 9:30pm EST. We've already watched the preview above over and over for clues on what to expect from the series, but then clubbing with the girls when they visited NYC helped us get some more inside information.

So what can we expect from the girls who fly the friendly skies? Find out, after the jump!

Virgin America's 'Fly Girls' TV Show Debuts on March 24

February 24, 2010 at 10:55 AM | by | ()

Last night, in between watching Tyra Banks scarf down sliders and hunky fashion photographer Nigel Barker flash his 1,000-watt smile, we caught up with the stars of the CW's upcoming new series: "Fly Girls." These girls aren't you typical Hollywood actresses; they're Virgin America flight attendants who lived their work-hard, play-hard days in front of the cameras during the filming of the show.

Down in the sleek cavern of a club that is Simyone in New York City's Meatpacking District, they joined other CW stars for a premiere party—think the likes of Tyra, Nigel and Jay Manuel of America's Next Top Model. Of course they are excited for everyone to tune in and watch their adventures in the sky and on the ground, but we also discovered the premiere date: March 24 at 9:30pm EST. And you know we'll be watching and recapping every episode here for you!

Richard Branson Might Make A Cameo On Virgin America's 'Fly Girls' TV Show

January 12, 2010 at 10:34 AM | by | ()

It's almost mid-season in the land of television series, and you know what that means? New shows, including the much-anticpated CW one following around the flight attendants of Virgin America. it's called "Fly Girls" and it should be sufficiently salacious and sexy, what with five high-flying hotties partying just as hard as they work.

But just how involved in the show is the airline? The LA Times recently looked into this question, and discovered everything but the show's premier date, although they did say in March. Now although you'll see plenty of Virgin America logos and planes in the show, that wasn't a term dictated by the airline; apparently Virgin gave the telveision crew free reign and simply comped the flights for the crew to shoot. But then Virgin's biggest mascot might even make an appearance; we're talking about good old Richard Branson of course.

But wait, there's more!

A First Look At 'Fly Girls,' Bringing Juicy Flight Attendant Drama To The CW

November 20, 2009 at 8:33 AM | by | ()

Let the buzz begin over the newest reality show-drama to hit the boob tube: "Fly Girls," a "docu-series" that will follow the day-to-night, sky-to-ground lives of five flight attendants for Virgin America. The teaser commercial just leaked last night on YouTube (we've posted it above), and already we're salivating for the start.

Now we know that Virgin America is bringing the sexy back to air travel, but this is the stuff of pure vice. For those of you familiar with the MTV shows "The Hills" and "The City," "Fly Girls" might feel familiar since the show is from the same executive producer, and we can already see the similarities through this brief spot alone. Still, it won't be all clubbin' and kissin' for the girls, as the CW is saying that the show is to be a "360-degree look at the charismatic jet-setting flight attendants on America’s hippest new airline." Does this mean we'll get to watch them explaining to cranky passengers how to connect to the in-flight WiFi?

The goodies on the show, after the jump.
