    January 18, 2005 -- THIS ain't your mama's sweet 16 — and it prob ably wasn't yours or your best friend's either.
    The latest MTV real-life series, "My Super Sweet 16," premiering tonight at 10:30, explores the real world of overindulged American teens as they plan their extravagant birthday bashes.

    "Being 16 is a power struggle with parents — there's a lot of push and pull at that stage," says executive producer Nina Diaz. "We wanted to capture that exact moment when someone is turning from childhood to adulthood..

    "Every week we're documenting the journey of what it's like to turn 16 in these times, which is much more complicated [than it used to be]. Kids can sometimes be more focused on the material aspects of the world."

    No kidding.

    The first of six episodes revolves around a pair of popular (and filthy rich) La Jolla, Calif., teens, Jacqueline and Lauren, who are having a joint 400-person party at the local Hard Rock Café. They estimate the festivities will cost a mere $100,000.

    In the half-hour show, the girls deal with the horror of an overflowing guest list, the sorrow of not having Beyoncé (her half-million dollar fee was somewhat too expensive) and a near catfight over wanting to wear similar dresses.



    Upcoming episodes feature a party thrown by the son of a celebrity caterer — including a father-son stop at a dance club to pick podium dancers for the party — and an unpopular girl who uses her talk-of-the-town bash to exact revenge on all the people that have been mean to her.

    Fortunately, here's a healthy dose of humor too.

    "At first, we didn't know what shape the show was going to take, but comedy has really become the heart of a lot of these episodes," says Diaz.

    Take, for example, the unintentionally hilarious moment when the high heel-and-miniskirt clad Jacqueline gets sucked into the party's mosh pit, while Lauren squeals and scampers away.

    Despite all this, the teens weren't merely interested in spending money.

    "They honestly worked very hard. We were all impressed by how dedicated, diligent and adult-like they were in handling all of their arrangements and advocating for all of their needs," says Diaz.

    The La Jolla girls even collected $10 from each guest and donated it to charity.

    Still, "a lot of times we're blown away — just when we thought we'd seen it all, we have Ava come along from Beverly Hills, having her 'Arabian Nights'-themed sweet 16 at the Four Seasons," says Diaz — with four shirtless college polo players carrying her on a silk pillow.

    Ugh. I saw the first episode and it was so wack. The brunette girl got punched at her own freakin party?! What was that? The party would have been over as soon as some guy punches me. I would have had him arrested and the party would have been done. That girl was so retarded-it didn't even look like they had fun.

    Those girls were so ridiculous. Their Sweet 16 turned into a freakin rave and they didn't even care. And it didn't even look like they had fun or anybody cared about them. They went and got their hair done and bought expensive dresses but really...do you think anyone noticed?? They were too busy having a mosh pit!

    This next episode with the girl who goes to Paris to find an "original" dress and says "Mom, Dior is LIKE .....closed." is pretty damn annoying. Sounded like it took her a while to think of how to make that sentence.

    How about the crying "hissy fit" while out at dinner cause she did not get her brand new Range Rover on the day of her birth.... she got it a couple days later at her actual party.

    Of course there was her father commenting in the end the whole thing... the trip to Paris to buy the "ulitmate dress" which ended up being made in California... the party... and lets not forget the Range Rover. Cost: 200,000.00+

    All this for a Sweet 16? Holy Cow... The worst part was... there was nothing likeable about this girl. At least the two girls with the Party that turned into a Mosh pit were decent acting.
