[via press release from Style]


LOS ANGELES - June 12, 2013 - Style Media reaches for big city dreams with the chic pals of "City Girl Diaries," a new docu-series premiering Sunday, July 21 at 9pm ET/PT. These 30-something, talented and beautiful best friends will take viewers on a high-class journey through their fast-paced New York City lives, from epic girl talk sessions to their dating mishaps, tumultuous love lives and demanding careers. Despite their drastically different personalities and busy professions, this group of women remains inseparable for better or for worse. Together, they will navigate old friends, new beginnings and awkward situations.

Meet the cast of "City Girl Diaries":

Leigh Rossini is a no-holds-bar publicist who runs the hippest salon in Manhattan, The Louis Licari Group. Leigh calls the shots at work and at home. Having just given birth to a new baby, Leigh now finds herself at a crossroads -- learning how to balance being a loving mom, a supportive girlfriend and a driven businesswoman. Though Leigh is known to push a few buttons, she is the glue that holds the group together.

Marianne Garvey began her friendship with Leigh after a random encounter while bicycling across the Brooklyn Bridge. Marianne's the Queen Bee of New York gossip. Prior to being a columnist at the New York Daily News, she was an editor at In Touch magazine and Page Six. With a successful career in journalism, Marianne has set her sights on pursuing her lifelong dream of being a standup comedian.

Leila Shams and Leigh grew up together, and twenty years later, they are still best friends. Leila is a fashion designer whose unique pieces have been worn by Vanessa Hudgens, Ke$ha, Nicki Minaj, Fergie and Kim Kardashian, among others, and have been featured in Elle, Marie Claire and numerous fashion blogs. Currently, she is the design director of Buffalo David Bitton, but hopes to one day have the means to solely work on her namesake line full time.

Kelly Brady is a publicity maven looking to take her PR agency, Brandsway Creative, to the next level. Her clients include supermodels Jessica White and Julie Henderson as well as New York's hottest restaurants The Dalloway, The Stand Restaurant and Georgica in the Hamptons. Additionally, her agency plans charity events such as The Doe Fund, Jacobs Cure and The National Urban Technology Center. Her tight bond with Marianne formed years ago when she pitched stories to Marianne at Page Six. Since then, their relationship and Kelly's career have come a long way.

Raina Seitel is an Emmy-award winning journalist and currently serves as an entertainment and lifestyle correspondent for a number of media outlets, including NBC's "New York Live" and "Naughty But Nice with Rob Shuter" on AXSTV. Raina became friends with Leigh after years of getting her hair done at Louis Licari Salon. Newly divorced and now a single mother, Raina must juggle parenthood, a busy career and the single-life in New York City.

Through StyleNetwork.com and the "City Girl Diaries" show site, viewers will have unprecedented, behind-the-scenes access to each cast member via cast blogs.

"City Girl Diaries" is Produced by Discovery Studios LLC. Gary Shapiro, Daniel Soiseth and Jason Sands serve as executive producers.
