Is Janice Dickinson pulling a fast one on America?

Janice_lThis whole time, I’ve been secretly watching The Janice Dickinson Modeling Agency and just NOT blogging about it. The time has come for that to end.

Whatever you think you know about Janice, or modeling reality shows, or even the concept of reality or life itself, throw it aside and just watch one ep of JDMA. To me, it’s the strangest and somehow most compelling reality show out there right now. The entire thing — every line, every ill-conceived "plot" every "random" character — is completely scripted, and it’s becoming more and more obvious as the show (apparently) has hired more and more writers. And yet at this point, I still can’t tell who the joke’s on. Viewers? The actor/models? Janice herself? I alternate between imagining Janice as the mastermind behind the whole operation and as a blabbermouth robot who runs disastrously on a strict diet of chemicals and martinis. Either way, you can’t beat last week’s text-message prompt (pictured)….

JAMBOOMBAH?!

I love it.

    I actually secretly love that show.

    Do you think that it was supposed to say Jimboomba, which is in Australia? If so the show might need new writers who can spell!

    It is a crazy show – can’t watch it often. It is fun to watch her try to make everything such a drama – the “milk is spoiled, what will I do – this changes everything!!!” She scares me a bit – she looks like the Joker from Batman in this photo.

    Oh Janice! I knew nothing of her before her stint on Top Model as the interesting judge. Take that Twiggy! The show is so useless but it shows a fair amount of naked male so it’s okay with me. I love how everyone constantly comments on her professionalism on the show. The girl is crazy!

    I haven’t watched Janice Dickenson’s show, mostly because I find her odious, but I find the trend of fake reality shows to be disturbing. Mark Burnett’s The Casino was totally scripted and it felt like Lisa Loeb’s show was too. And that Rob and Amber thing was so obviously scripted that I didn’t make it past the first commercial break.

    I also secretly love the show. (Ugly) male model crying because his slightly-less-ugly-yet-more-masculine roommate gets all the jobs? Same said ugly model getting picked to go to Japan with the one female model in the agency he kind of dates? And who could forget naked male backhandsprings? And naked male wrestlers? Pricess, priceless stuff.

    Wait a minute! You mean to tell me reality television is scripted? Lies! Laguna Beach is TOTALLY real…isn’t it?

    The best was when Janice went crazy in the couture dress in the fountains. And it was right after she gave a lecture on being professional and landing a client. Gotta love Janice. The only one that would make herself look stupid and in the wrong just for the sake of a good show.

    She personifies everything that is wrong with America.

    I don’t typically watch reality tv…
    but I LOVE Janice and the ‘Real Housewives’ on Oxygen. Oh…guilty pleasures!

    Ridiculous. The people on that show are simply ridiculous people in my view, and certainly not “model” material (OK maybe for LA where it appears stupid and ugly have been “In” for some time) but honestly, take a good look at those people, who are so- called models on that show! Are they grand looking, stunning or truly beautiful, men or woman? No. The two exceptions to this that I see, that one guy who did the underwear contract in New York should be in New York or Europe; he and that other tall one he worked with are the only ones in my opinion that really look like male models. The rest? Come on, do they think people are that stupid? I guess so.
