IT’S OFFICIAL: CW will be airing the DC based reality show Blonde Charity Mafia on July 7, 2009. After months of speculation about whether the show will air, Katherine Kennedy, Sophie Pyle and Krista Johnson will make their television debut, according to TV Week.
The Blonde Charity Mafia will premiere with back-to-back half-hour episodes at 9 and 9:30pm, right after the premiere of “Hitched.” Original episodes of the series will then air on July 14 at 9:30pm.
“Mafia” will end its run in early August. The CW hasn’t set its fall premiere dates yet, but there’s been speculation the network may once again roll out its series early, either in late August or early September.
BLONDE CHARITY MAFIA is a docu-series about the lives of Washington, D.C.’s most influential 20-something Alpha Girls. The BCM runs the D.C. social circuit from charity events to society parties. Their events are the hottest ticket in town, and everyone vies for an invitation – from Congressmen to Hill staffers. Gossip about the BCM is played out and played up on LATENIGHTSHOTS.com (a local, invite-only social website), where minute-by-minute gossip updates about the BCM’s daily (and nightly) exploits are shared for the D.C. public to devour. BLONDE CHARITY MAFIA is from Capital Hills Productions, Inc. with executive producers Patty Ivins (“The Modern Girl’s Guide To Life,” “Sports Illustrated: Swimsuit Model Search”) and Julie Pizzi (“The Modern Girl’s Guide To Life,” “Sports Illustrated: Swimsuit Model Search”).
