x zer0G about being on a makeover show on the Women's network. Robin asked them then "this isn't style by jury right?" since she knew that show and wanted nothing to do with it. They told her no, it's for a new show premiering in 2006.

So there were some meetings for the next couple of months. Robin went and met with them, the story producer actually came to our place and went through her closet. The story Robin put together was that the person she is today isn't represented with all these baggy jeans and old raver fashions.

Sounded pretty good. get some new clothes and a makeover. She asked the story producer if the show was anything like "style by jury" again. Style by jury has a jury of 9 people watching you from behind a mirror cutting you up when you don't even know it and then they show you the comments. The producer told her it was nothing like that show. Robin replied "Great, cause I won't even watch that one".

The big sticking point obviously was her hair, she told them if they try to cut more than 6 inches she's walking. She'll colour it, they can trim it, do other things, but the bulk of the length has to stay.

So things progress and finally they tell her there's one last on camera interview to make sure she's good on TV. They told her to bring clothes and some raver night wear. So she packs up some hoodies, baggy jeans, baby t's and also the green dress she wore on the AGT flyer.

She gets there and they're all over the green dress. So they have her wear that and some candy bracelets and go meet the host. She asked the line producer "This isn't style by jury, I'm not getting set up right?" to which she was told no, it's for a new show. Oh, and the release she signed also said for a new unnamed show to premiere in 2006. I guess she thought something was up and even asked another person if this was some sort of ambush.

So, the host talks to her for 90 minutes while she's in her green raver costume. she's telling them that this isn't something she wears normally but a costume for one of our parties. then the host is all like "surprise, you're on TV RIGHT NOW!" and Robin responds "This is fucking style by jury, isn't it?". and he's all "yeah! you're not happy?".

Robin then blows a gasket. So they had 9 people hidden away watching her (without sound, so they didn't hear her saying this is not normal clothing) and they recorded their snide remarks and then play the video back to her! All kinds of comments like she looks like an unfit mother, a lost soul crying out for attention, "obviously not married".

Robin couldn't believe that these people would flat out lie to her, to her face, and set her up like that. the exec producer there referred to Robin as "television gold" from her reaction. too bad she told them to go fuck themselves and won't be continuing with the show.

She came home furious, left a scathing message on the voicemail of the story producer, who is too afraid to take her calls.

Were dumfounded how these people would continue courting Robin to be on the show when they knew how she felt and lie to her to get her there. They could have cut her loose ages ago.

I suspect their usual reaction when they tear into someone like that with the comments is that the person is then thrilled to have the show "fix them".

It wasn't even an issue about the show anymore, it's about having anything to do with people who flat out lie to your face. It didn't matter how much money in clothing and having a stylist work with you she would have gotten, it was now a matter of principle about not condoning this behaviour.

Robin is pretty crushed, she was looking forward to being on the show they made up to get her on this stupid one. This is the kind of stuff that permanently scars you and prevents you from trusting someone again. Even if she wanted to go forward, how could she trust them with her hair. Or would they cut it off to make for more "good tv"?

We're getting some pleasure in knowing their little game didn't work and their going to have to eat the costs of production on the day Robin was there plus their schedule is all screwed now. They claimed in 50 shows no one ever responded like that, but I'd have to wonder if that's a lie as well.

x Jess hmm.. ya if I had to ask a second or even third time, I probably would have stopped returning their calls.

Then again, I probably wouldn't have contacted them in the first place.

Although there's a show called, "Renovate my wardrobe" that looks like something I could use. I have way too many clothes I don't wear and not enough that I like to wear.. Unfortunately, I don't have an actual *wardrobe* to renovate. Apparently it's a cross between makeover and home renovation show.
