Everyone knows that magazine circulation is dying. So magazines are trying to do everything they can to get attention, even if it means reality TV. Marie Claire, for example, launched a reality show on the Style network called, "Running in Heels." This docu-drama gives viewers an inside look into the personal and professional lives of its editors, interns and senior staffers.
We think an episode with an inside view of the snatching Nina Garcia from Elle would have been riveting enough but the content they put together is a lot more entertaining than you would imagine.
Yes, there are a lot of interns crying-- been there done that-- lots of snide and demanding senior staffers-- been there too-- and yes, the editors are attempting to set the tone. The combination is very entertaining.
Running in Heels is no Gossip Girl but it's much better than MTV's The City. Here's a link to the premier episode, which can be viewed in its entirety here.
