Brittny Gastineau

Born on November 6, 1983
Brittny Gastineau is an American model, socialite, and reality television personality. She is of Russian, Italian and French ancestry hence her French surname. She is the daughter of former New York Jets defensive end football player Mark Gastineau, and Lisa Gastineau.
"Any guy I want to date doesn't want to be on camera. We'll be showing the world it's not that easy to meet the right man."

- "Bottom line, if you're going to have
the sizzle, you better have the steak [] You meet somebody, and it's like all these butterflies. You need passion, that's the sizzle, and then you need the steak to keep it together."
- Brittny Gastineau

She may not be as well known as Paris Hilton, but Brittny Gastineau has likewise managed to turn her socialite status into a profitable career. Her lifestyle was magnified in early 2005 when E! Television began to air Gastineau Girls, a reality show that followed Brittny Gastineau and her mom Lisa as the duo searched for men and careers in New York. As the show gained viewers, Brittny Gastineau became somewhat of a celeb in her own right, successfully beginning her modeling career with a feature in Stuff magazine and a mention on Maxim's Hot 100 list. After guest appearances on shows like The View, Filthy Rich: Cattle Drive and Keeping Up with the Kardashians, Brittny Gastineau is now in talks to get her own reality show, which she hopes will debut in 2009.

Wealth and a drive to experience all that their riches could provide pushed Brittny Gastineau and her mother into the New York social scene, and they began to attend the red carpet events and celebrity-filled balls that reached the tabloid news every day.

Similar to Dina and Lindsay Lohan, Brittny Gastineau and her mother became known for their quirky behavior and pretty faces (many thought they were sisters, not mother and daughter). They were gold for the paparazzi, and soon the Gastineau name was back in the Big Apple headlines.

Brittny Gastineau and her mother’s lifestyle seemed like a perfect fit for television, and soon contacts of Lisa's finally set them up with E! Television executives to discuss the creation of a TV show. The product of the meeting was Gastineau Girls, a reality TV program that followed Brittny Gastineau and her mother around as the two single girls looked for men and sought careers.

Gastineau Girls debuted in February 2005, and viewers soaked in the latest of reality series, loving the antics that the beautiful duo were up to each week. As the program gained momentum, Brittny Gastineau benefited from the publicity and made good on her goal of modeling, as both Stuff and Maxim magazines came knocking.

Brittny Gastineau also modeled for Anne Bowen during New York's fashion week, and was then was hired as a spokesmodel for designer Ed Hardy's line, a gig that forced her to relocate to Los Angeles.

brittny gastineau takes on l.a.
Living in Los Angeles, Brittny Gastineau soon became friends with socialite and reality star Kim Kardashian and even made a guest appearance on Kim Kardashian’s show, Keeping Up with the Kardashians. While hanging out with the likes of Kim Kardashian and Paris Hilton, Brittny Gastineau once again became a red-carpet staple, with paparazzi-snapped photos of her turning up frequently on blogs dedicated to those dubbed “famous for being famous.” It’s no wonder, then, that Brittny Gastineau is in negotiations to star in yet another reality show. It might be a saturated market, but when the shoe fits, apparently you wear it on the red carpet.
