Tentatively called ‘Super Jappy’, a new reality show may be hittin’ the airwaves soon.

Radaronline reports that women ages 21-45 are invited to a casting call to be a JAP, Jewish American Princess. As the email stated, ‘Gone are the days where being a JAP is a bad thing – today Jewish American Princesses are proud.’ Since being proud about one’s own high-maintenence lifestyle is a good thing, this show is bound to attract many high-profile young Jewish women. 

But don’t worry too much if you feel that this show will cast a negative light on American Jewry. I’m not sure one can really make JAPs look any worse than their current reputation. Maybe I’m out of touch, but do people even use that term regularly anymore?

Reality TV has gone ethnic, and expect more stereotypes to fill the idiot box in the near future.
