E! premiered its new show, “So Cosmo”, on Wednesday, and you better believe that this aspiring fashion journalist was all for it. The show, which centers around the lives of a group of Cosmopolitan magazine staff members, didn’t shy away from bringing on the drama in the first episode. Aside from getting a behind-the-scenes look at a photo shoot with Ruby Rose, the episode showed the enthralling formation of a potential office relationship between Brand Coordinator Diandra Bardwell and Fitness Contributor Evan Betts and ended with the shocking announcement of the editor-in-chief’s departure from the magazine, which puts the rest of the staff’s jobs in jeopardy. Evidently, viewers were taken through a reality show rollercoaster ride.
Already, there are some editors that are my personal favorites, but here’s a complete rundown of who’s who in the Cosmo staff:
Joanna Coles, [former] Editor-in-Chief
Aya Kanai, Executive Fashion Director
Leah Wyar Romito, Executive Beauty Director
Diandra Barnwell, Brand Coordinator
Evan Betts, Fitness Contributor
Steven Brown, Bookings Director
Adam Mansuroglu, Fashion Editor
Tiffany Reid, Senior Fashion Editor
James Worthington Demolet, Senior Fashion Editor
Next week, we’ll get to see how the events introduced in the first episode begin to unfold. Will Diandra and Evan continue pursuing a relationship? Will we get to meet the new editor-in-chief, and will he or she bring in an entirely new staff with them? Can the new episode just premiere right now or is that too much to ask?
Evidently, I’m all for this show right now. I hope they’re able to continue to have a good balance between showing what’s happening within the professional side of working at Cosmopolitan and what’s happening within each employee’s individual lives like they did in this episode.
If you missed the premiere, you can watch a recap of it here.
