They were born and bred in Hollywood, and now, sisters Erin and Sara Foster (daughters of superstar music producer David Foster) are poking fun at the reality-TV genre in a parody on VH1.

Barely Famous follows the duo as they navigate the celebrity-obsessed world of Los Angeles. Sara, 34, and Erin, 32, offer a tongue-in-cheek perspective in the satirical comedy series with help from celebrity pals like Kate Hudson, Nicole Richie and Jessica Alba.

In the clip, Erin, who claims she is looking for a normal guy, is having drinks on a date when she gets a late-night text from James Franco, derailing her claim that she doesn’t associate with Hollywood ilk.

Sara, best known for her role as Jen Clark on 90210, and Erin, a writer and actress, are the stepdaughters of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Yolanda Foster, and they even have a Kardashian connection. Their father, David, was married to Brody and Brandon Jenner's mom, Linda Thompson, for 14 years.
