Bad PR, Good PR it's all PR and Drives Interactions

A new Reality show titled “Secrets of Aspen” premiered last night on VH1. Locals in Aspen both anticipated and dreaded the premier. A Facebook page was created just for folks who wanted nothing to do with it. Yet this past weekend was one of the biggest Social Networking buzz days for Aspen.

The Tweets were both positive and negative.

Keejerr I like dis show da secrets of aspen very very interesting


julieq The VH1 Secrets of Aspen are out: the cast has no personality, no grasp of reality, no youthfulness and are completely unlikable.

AaronMClark Wow. Secrets of Aspen on VH1. Didn’t think real housewives could be more trashy. But can’t stop watching!

The point is that a viral marketing campaign will drive buzz and you can choose to ride it or not

I guess it didn’t hurt that Paris was in town either – When I was in Aspen, I saw a woman with this cute little dog and just had to take a pic with her. So cute! @parishilton
