ANTM on strike!
for myself and other fans of fabulous reality tv show america's next top model, you might be interested to read this interview over on television without pity with one of the show's writers about the strike the writing staff is currently on. it's actually kind of interesting - the writing team is striking because currently, basically no reality show writers have been allowed to join the writers guild of america and get all the benefits that come with that - little things like health insurance and pensions. apparently reality tv show writers aren't considered real writers, or something, by the industry in general, and this strike by the ANTM writing crew could have really far-reaching effects on if reality show writers are allowed to unionize. kind of interesting. there's also a bit of insight into the process of how the show - and other reality shows - are "written." my take is that the CW better up and let the ANTM folks do what the hell they want, as the show is basically the flagship of a fledgling network that's gonna need a lot of help come fall.
but let's face it: ain't no writer talented enough out there to come up with the line "bitch poured beer on my weave."
