This Anya Firestone Bio explores her life.
Anya Firestone On Bravo’s RGIP (Real Girls In Paris)
There were quite a few shows that exaggerated, glamorized, and romanticized the Parisian lifestyle, but Bravo’s Real Girlfriends in Paris tried to showcase all the dark and bright sides women go through as they adjusted to their respective situations in Paris. From navigating dating woes to job obstacles to even culture shock, the audience was on an adventure as if they were the ex-pats themselves.
One of RGIP’s cast, Anya is an artistic, bubbly, and resilient woman. Her love for French culture pushed her to even get a license (received in Aug 2010) from the French government to give tours at every historical and cultural venue in Paris. Besides that, she was also an inventive hostess who often had gatherings and weekly Shabbat dinners in her Parisian apartment.
And not to mention, her quirky and affectionate personality made her the go-to shoulder to lean on when the rest of the ladies felt homesick or needed advice. Overall, she was the mother figure of the group.
Talking about her group, Anya was joined by Emily Gorelik, Margaux Lignel, Adja Toure, Victoria Zito, and Kacey Margo for the inaugural season of RGIP.
