Do you know what it’s like to look into the innocent eyes of a hopeful 12-year-old reality TV challenger and say the words, “You have been eliminated from the competition”? Of course you don’t, you’re a diary. Let me tell you though, Di, being the Gemini nominated host of an acclaimed reality series isn’t as easy as a simple, non-Gemini nominated civilian would think.
By nature, I hate being the bearer of bad news. When our family hamster died I spent weeks changing her food and telling people she was just exhausted.
Shooting In Real Life this past summer has been a total blast but it’s that brutal send-off scene I could do without. I’ve tried getting it cut, but convincing a TV producer to lose an element of drama is like trying to steal the bottle of Jack Daniels out of Mel Gibson tight grip.
I guess what I’m trying to say is, I’m starting to understand why Tyra Banks always has a tiny hint of crazy in her eyes.
