Say bonjour to 'Real Girlfriends in Paris,' Bravo's addicting new series

'Real Girlfriends in Paris' is essentially the reality equivalent of 'Emily in Paris,' so obviously we're adding it to our watch list

If Emily Cooper wasn't fictional, you'd likely find her in Real Girlfriends in Paris, Bravo's new reality series (and one of our September screen time picks). 

Housewives' younger sister and the European equivalent to Vanderpump Rules, this new series is a trés chic exploration of womanhood in the French capital.

"I'm going to be honest—it sounds so cliché and so Emily in Paris—but it's just the truth: I love who I am here," cast mate Emily Gorelik tells My Imperfect Life about the French capital. "I love that every day I have a lot of inconveniences—that's what you'll see on the show. It's not always beautiful and romantic and perfect and glamorized, but every day holds something different."

According to the network, six young American women packed their suitcases and uprooted themselves to the most romantic city in the world to "find each other, encounter a romantic rendezvous or two and embrace all the spontaneity that comes with living in an exciting new city."

Though undeniably a wonderful city, there will, of course, be bumps along the way—and we're not just talking about the cobblestone streets.

"I think it does take hutzpah and courage to come to Paris on your own, trying to make a life and maybe not speaking the language to leaving friends and family, and I think a whole other level is putting that vulnerable trajectory on national television," cast mate Anya Firestone tells us.

That's for sure! And we can't wait to see how it all unfolds.

Light your croissant candle, sip some red wine and enjoy a baguette: we'll tell you everything you need to know about Bravo's new indulgence (a must before you binge Emily in Paris season 3, of course).
