The Janice Dickinson Modeling Agency premieres tomorrow night on Oxygen. (Right after Deadliest Catch!) God bless everyone who fell into that trap thinking they would be discovered and whisked off to a career in the modeling industry. At best, they're going to be making nightclub appearances along with Real World has-beens.
I got this email from a contestant on the show, back when filming started:
Well heres the low down. Im on a reality show thats about Janice Dickinson (first supermodel) and her agency. Well, it's kind of a hybrid show, I guess. But I just don't really know what to expect. I got another buddy to come with me whom was on Boy Meets Boy but he got tossed right out at the first round so there really wasn't much he could tell me.
Well on the first day after the auditon shoot, we had to go into the agency with a swimsuit and some athletic gear. Assuming it was just gonna be another test shoot we all went in and met with Janice and her trainer--who then proceeded to draw on us with markers and smiley or frowny stamps like we were in fat camp and about to get lypo done. And to add insult to injury she got me infront of the cameras and called me a "gay slob with the audacity to walk into her agency with love handles". Even that I took as bullshit for the cameras. But the fact that she got her fucken twiggy ass make up guy to look at me and say " You're gay? well then, there is NO excuse for you". I think i look damn good!
I have never been so jealous in my life. Janice Dickinson yelling at you? I want to do it! I have love handles, she could use me as her plaything. Although any makeup stylist who said anything would get punched, no question.
But rest assured, this will most likely be edited out, especially the makeup guy's quips. No one cares what he, or any other peripheral character, has to say. However, I feel bad that this nice young man was hoodwinked by the whole "Janice Dickinson was the first supermodel" line that she made up for herself, which is probably what drew him to the show. Like a moth to the flame, burned by the fire.
Speaking of Boy Meets Boy--those Bravo shows were the best. Whatever happened to Manhunt?
