03/05/10 Growing up Greenwich: Greenwich Diva Once Again Scoops The The Dish From The Greenwich Time

While Susie Is Sucking Down Free Drinks At Terra And Filing Mindless Reports About Frank And Kathie Lee Eating There, Greenwich Diva Has Real Entertainment News .....

ABC IS COMMING TO GREENWICH TO DO A REALITY TV SHOW

Greenwich Families Needed for TV show

Greenwich families needed for a documentary reality TV for major network.

Families must be leading members of society and are comfortable discussing everything from the “how to’s” of successful parenting to philanthropy, politics, high fashion, interior decorating, friendship, marriage and anything else that’s important – or just plain fun! – in their lives.

The people we are searching for would be thoughtful, articulate and and opinionated… trend setters with access to the most important cultural events in Greenwich society.

How does the pursuit of excellence shape a life?

What values do you raise in your children?

Is it important for them to take leadership roles because of the advantages they have had in life?

What are the critical crossroads in your personal life?

What kind of unique challenges does affluence pose for a family?

Kennedy once said, “"To those whom much is given, much is expected."

How does this factor in your life?
