'Russian Dolls' Wants to Be the New 'Jersey Shore'

by Jean Bentley, posted Jul 26th 2011 3:00PM
Russian DollsProduction on an all-Russian version of 'Jersey Shore' began last year shortly after MTV's infamous Seaside Heights kids infected the entirety of pop culture with their faux-Italian herpes.

And who could blame someone from wanting to cash in on the Macaroni Rascals' success? Lifetime was the lucky network that ended up greenlighting the new reality series, set in the Russian enclave of Brighton Beach, Brooklyn. The show follows similarly tanned, high-maintenance men and women as they ... well, we're not quite sure what they do.

Judging from this short promo there'll be lots of drinking and fighting when 'Russian Dolls' debuts Aug. 11 at 10:30PM. What else do we need, really?

Watch the clip below.

For crying out loud - stop calling them Russians. You will find almost no ethnic Russian on Brighton Beach (AKA Little Odessa) except for those who followed their Jewish wives/husbands/mothers. And who will ever grant an asylum to ethnic Russian? Give us a break - call them Russian-speaking Jews and don't take it as offence. It's the TRUTH.

Russian Dolls is a show about non-Russian poser idiots who came to the US claiming they were oppressed by the horrible Russians then pass themselves off as real Russians. Just because you were born in the former Soviet Union or Russian Federation and speak Russian doesn’t make you Russian. An ethnic Russian born in China who speaks Mandarin isn’t called Chinese. What don’t these idiots reveal their true ethnicity when they commit crimes in the US and the ethnicity they used to get into the US, live off of welfare, claim their disabled to get a pass on not taking the citizenship test and let’s not forget the fake degrees they bought in the former Soviet Union to obtain jobs here when they were all involved in illegal money transfers and the black market.
