What happens when you try to interview a former reality-show contestant: Some network apparatchik (always a woman or a gay male) stops the subject from answering questions.

  • Sorry to interject here, you guys, but anything that hasn’t been on the show we can’t talk about.

  • Let me… I’m going to get a network rep to answer that for you. I’m not sure of the answer off the top of my head and I’m not sure if John can answer that.

  • Can we try to keep this about what’s actually on the air? I don’t really see the point of these questions.

  • Yeah, personally I don’t know the answer to that question, but I don’t see why not.

  • Can I get back to you on that? Just let me look into it for you.

And the subject always goes along with it.

I really like my pictures; my homosexualist-lock-screens project is what I am most proud of in living memory; this personal Weblog is an absolute cultural treasure.

And, last but not least, I don’t like you, either.
