Ever have something that you wanted to work out, not work out and in looking back you realize that the way it turned out wasn’t such a bad thing?
In November of 2008 I was contacted by MTV about the possibility of doing their TV show MADE (see the older post here). MTV chose to go another way, and at the time I shrugged it off and said to myself, “Well, it would have been nice.”
“Just my opinion here, but I think you are probably fortunate that you didn’t get picked. I know this may sound harsh, but the way they are going with those “reality” shows, you never really know how they are going to portray you.”
So now the follow-up here is a quote from an article that appeared in the Seattle P-I from reporter Monica Guzman:
“MTV did take serious liberties. At one point during their training, Jenna and Sabrina got lost on their way to meet Brown at a rock wall and showed up over an hour late. Rather than give the true story, editors took footage from another day to make it look like the girls ditched Brown to go shopping.”

Shawn Kovacich was right.
And so was Wushu Sifu Restita DeJesus when she said, “I’m kind of leery about those reality shows…”
Whew; I guess I dodged a bullet.
