In Hollywood, being a JAP is a good thing

Remember in elementary school when being called a “JAP” was an insult? Well in Hollywood, being spoiled and snobby is an asset that can make you famous. And one group of producers has it in mind to create a show about—you guessed it—Jewish American Princesses.

The other day PerezHilton.com posted a casting notice for a new reality show about wealthy Jewish girls described as “Jersey Shore” meets “The Real Housewives of New Jersey.” So expect an incredibly flattering portrait of Jewish women.

According to the casting notice, producers are “looking for ‘Super Jappy’ groups of friends!” because “gone are the days where being a JAP is a bad thing – today Jewish American Princesses are proud.” So proud, in fact, they’ve even gone “classy”?

“Think Jersey Shore meets Real Housewives of New Jersey – but classier,” the casting notice reads. “We want beautiful, fun, outspoken groups of Jewish American Women.”

Wow, what a way to undermine the stereotype. Seriously, who comes up with this appalling garbage?
