goal: An A-list Acting Career! It's no doubt that New York is already a super
star - the country fell in love with the screaming, binge eating, emotionally
unstable harpy during her four hit reality shows. Now, in ten half-hour
episodes, New York will take her fame to a new level in her pursuit to become
a serious, respectable A-List actress. New York must put her fiancé, Tailor
Made, on the backburner and take a shot at Hollywood. She leaves her man and
her mom behind and makes the move out west seeking fortune and (more) fame.
Failure is not an option and she will do whatever it takes to make it. The
laughs start here, when "New York Goes to Hollywood" premieres Tuesday,
September 9th on Citytv.
