The Apthorp, a famous landmark buiding at 79th Street and Broadway, once represented elegance and sophistication. That atmosphere has eroded over the years, and now it may be completely obliterated. Cyndi Lauper, of “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun” fame, plans to star in a reality series about life on the Upper West Side with her husband and her 12-year-old son, the Daily News reported. Lauper lives in the Apthorp. The show will be produced by Survivor producer Mark Burnett and will be about “the comedy of our lives,” Lauper told the News.
Lauper never really topped her infectious 1983 album, “She’s So Unusual,” but she has remained a quirky presence in the New York music scene, and is now working on a new blues album. But her thirst for fame has recently sent her to the netherworld of reality TV after she took a gig on “The Celebrity Apprentice.”
Now she is bringing that netherworld to us!
