The real life reality star of "The Platinum Life" was first an unknown actress playing the same type of reality star she became, in the all new scripted series "How To Make A Reality Star" premiering May 10, 2018.
LOS ANGELES - April 27, 2018 - PRLog -- For E!'s reality show, The Platinum Life's starlet Nazanin Mandi, real life has imitated art. The 31-year-old actress who is most known for her long-term relationship with R&B Singer Miguel (she's his real life fiancé) has become a main storyline on the E! Network show. But before there was The Platinum Life, there was "How to Make a Reality Star," an independently produced series written and created by Sheriee Nicole/RieeMixed Productions in 2014. The show stars Nazanin Mandi and premieres this spring (May 10, 2018) after a 4-year journey in redevelopment and production.
"How to Make a Reality Star" is a scripted series about three Southern Belle sisters who move to Los Angeles so that the eldest can fulfill her dreams of becoming a Hollywood star. When they meet an out of work writer (Samantha) who has come to realize that talent alone doesn't land gigs, facts are manipulated to generate the storylines needed for Sam's newfound reality show about the sisters. After the youngest sister's exceptionally scandalous night out is captured by the paparazzi, the press run wild with assumptions, and a star is born! That star happens to be played by Platinum Life talent Nazanin Mandi who, two years later, sits in much the same position of the character she once portrayed - a reality star whose onscreen life story is filled with manipulated and exaggerated facts that play to the purpose of gaining fame and notoriety. This irony of parallel circumstance is simply life imitating art at its finest.
"How to Make a Reality Star" pulls back the curtain on the behind the scenes plotting that goes into creating reality show storylines that have fans believing in the manufactured authenticity of reality TV star lives. Season one of the show will premiere its first of eight episodes on Thursday, May 10, 2018 directly on YouTube (future distribution platforms will be later announced). A special red carpet premiere and launch party (for select television/entertainment executives, press and media, celebrities and influencers) will also take place in Los Angeles, the same evening, to commemorate the series premiere. The event will include a special screening of the premiere episode plus a Q&A panel with the cast. Fellow reality stars from shows such as The Real Housewives of Orange County, Vanderpump Rules, WAGS LA, and others will also be on the red carpet for this industry anticipated event.

“How To Make A Reality Star” (HTMARS) pulls back the curtain on the façade of what really goes on behind the scenes of creating a reality show and the manufactured personas of reality TV stars. Don’t miss the series premiere and all of the planned experiential events that will go along with it.
Los Angeles, California – April 18, 2018
After 4 long years in production, an all new scripted series that pokes fun at the façade and the “not so real-ness” of reality TV will finally premiere on its official launch date of Thursday, May 10, 2018. “How To Make A Reality Star” is an independently produced scripted television show series whose story line goes behind the scenes and exposes the many schemes and scandals that go into creating and producing popular Reality TV shows and exposing what it really takes to create a Reality TV Star.
Actress Nazanin Mandi, star of the current reality TV show The Platinum Life (and real life fiancé to Rap/R&B singer Miguel), stars as the show’s unassuming ingenue who is accidentally thrown into the limelight by the show’s main character, an aspiring Hollywood producer played by actress Cara Manuele, and a sly and savvy publicist who work together to scheme and create scandal at every opportunity in hopes of landing a production deal. Actors Aundre Dean, Jillisa Lynn, and Chelsea Alana Riviera also star in the series.
Written and directed by writer, producer, and actress Sheriee Nicole (of Riee Mixed Productions), “How To Make A Reality Star” will premiere its first episode of the eight episode first season on Thursday May 10, 2018 directly on Youtube. A special red carpet premiere launch party for select television and entertainment press and media, celebrities, entertainment executives, and influencers will also take place in Los Angeles, the same evening, to commemorate the series premiere. The event will include a special screening plus a Q&A panel with the cast. Sheriee Nicole’s goal is to secure distribution on a mid to major network (such as Netflix, Amazon, WE, MTV, etc.) for season 2 which will soon be in production, and to have this project greenlit as her television production debut. As part of the show creator's "Hometown" press & media event, a pre-premiere event will also take place in Sheriee Ncole's hometown of Tucson, AZ the weekend of April 28th, 2018.

Sheriee Nicole is an Arizona native who grew up performing both on stage and in front of the camera. She was born and raised in Tucson and graduated from Tucson Magnet High School where she was Senior Class President and very active in the performing arts program. Upon relocating to Los Angeles to persue acting and television production, Sheriee earned roles in a variety of national commercials and independent projects. In 2014, while pursuing her degree in business management, Sheriee wrote, directed and starred in her debut web series “How to Make a Reality Star”. Her fascination with the outlandish and entertaining behind-the-scenes stories of the scandals and manipulation that goes into creating the “real-life” moments of a reality show and the loyalty of reality TV show fans who wholeheartedly believe that all of the drama is real and in the moment, led her to create a show that is both disclosing and entertaining. With role models such as Yvette Lee Bowser, Shonda Rhimes, Ava DuVerney, and (most notably paving a path much like her own) Issa Rae, Nicole hopes to attract the attention of mainstream fans and media who will support and advocate for her projects as well.
