The ‘Bay Ridge’ reality show is really pissing people off

Bay Ridge? More like NAY Ridge!

Attention enraged peoples of Bay Ridge, Gravesend and Bensonhurst — and we know there are a lot of you, judging by your comments on this post: You now have a public forum to express your distress at Oxygen’s latest stereotype-laden, girls behaving badly program Brooklyn 11223. As highlighted by The Bensonhurst Bean, Councilman Vincent Gentile and a group of “unnamed prominent Bay Ridge women” will host “a press conference in defense of our neighborhood” tomorrow. The protestors will meet outside of the Beyond Dance Studio 8717 Third Ave. at 11am to address their grievances with they say is the show’s crude and reductive portrayal of Bay Ridge residents, grievance including that the zip code isn’t even in Bay Ridge. Well guys, now you know how New Jersey feels.

  • The people representing this show, “acting” on it and in general supporting it are IDIOTS. It’s shameful, sad stereotypes and BAYRIDGE DOESN’T NEED this junk! Take it somewhere else!

    • nice going. i had no idea you were so far above so many of us in brooklyn. stereotypes? ha!

  • “Well guys, now you know how New Jersey feels.”
    As someone who grew up at the so-called Jersey Shore (shudder), I can say I only wish people there protested MTV’s nefarious invasion. Instead they welcomed it with big greedy mouths and horrible, spin-off merchandise. Growing up you wouldn’t think Seaside to get any trashier, but they proved us all wrong.

  •  ”and we know there are a lot of you, judging by your cmments on this post:” really?
    come on, 2 comments and you can determine how people feel. That’s a pretty amazing talent you have there. Get real. And you certainly don’t have a clue as to what the show is about or anything that pertains to any of the characters on the show.

  • This is truly outrageous! Brooklyn communities do not need this type of negative image! This show is garbage and does not represent any Brooklyn resident I know. The sad part is our society loves these types of shows and makes heros/idols of these no bodies!!

  • This show is not even close to being an accurate portrayl of Brooklyn. They can’t even get the zip code right. Bay Ridge’s zip code is 11209, morons!

    The ONLY ONE who lives in 11223, WHICH IS GRAVESEND, BY THE WAY, is Joey Lynn Tekluve. Valona Saka lives in Mill Basin, which is zip code 11234. Angelina Favuzza lives in Bergen Beach, which is also zip code 11234. Carla Cozzolino, Amanda Gordon and Christie Livoti live in Bay Ridge, which is zip code 11209.
