Meet the Gastineau Girls. No, they're not sisters. They're a mother-daughter duo of New York socialites who are best friends--and sometimes each other's biggest competition. Lisa, the mother, is a former model who made mad money in a divorce settlement with NFL star hubby Mark Gastineau (and invested rather well afterward, thank you very much). Brittny, the daughter, hasn't worked a day in her life. She lived with her grandmother after her parents' divorce and is now moving back to her mother's NYC pad after leaving college in Alabama. They're both looking for fame, fortune, happiness and true love--not really in that order. Good thing there's Luo the doorman-commentator to help guide us through the girls' adventures, because in the first episode alone, the mom and daughter pose for a naked photo shoot, have a surprise birthday party for Lisa and, oh yeah, shop a lot.

Gastineau Girls - Mark Gastineau - Netflix

Marcus Dell Gastineau (born November 20, 1956) is a former American football player who was a defensive end for the New York Jets from 1979 to 1988. A five-time Pro Bowler, his 107½ quarterback sacks in only his first 100 starts in the NFL made him one of the quickest and most feared pass rushers of his generation. Gastineau was ranked the 8th greatest pass rusher in NFL History on NFL Network's Top 10 Pass Rushers.

Gastineau Girls - The "New York Sack Exchange" - Netflix

In New York, Gastineau was a key part of the famed “New York Sack Exchange,” the Jets defensive line that also included Joe Klecko, Marty Lyons and Abdul Salaam. The four combined for 66 sacks in 1981, including twenty by Gastineau (In 1981 sacks were unofficial, but Gastineau's 20 sacks trailed Klecko by only ½ a sack), to lead the Jets to their first playoff game since 1969. He was Second-team All-Pro in 1981 as well as being consensus All-AFC. In November 1981, he, Klecko, Lyons and Salaam were invited to ring the ceremonial opening bell at the New York Stock Exchange, which served as the inspiration for their nickname. With Klecko rupturing the patella tendon in his right knee in the second game of the strike shortened 1982 season against the New England Patriots, Gastineau became the new unofficial leader of the “Sack Exchange.” Though he was often double teamed, he finished the season with six sacks, and was voted the NFL Defensive Player of the Year by NEA (and awarded the George S. Halas Trophy). The Jets made the playoffs again in 1982, losing the AFC Championship game to the Miami Dolphins.
