I turned down my dream internship...
for another dream internship so I hope I don’t regret it. I can’t believe I turned down an offer with the Chelsea Lately Show. It has literally been a dream of mine to work on that show since high school. It was an AMAZING opportunity and the coordinator was so impressed by my resume. She literally looked at it and said “well, looks like you’ve done it all so I don’t even need to ask you what you’re capable of.” It really just broke my heart having to decline the offer…I literally couldn’t sleep that night I found out about the offer because I couldn’t stop thinking whether it was going to be Bunim/Murray or Chelsea Lately. I’ve always been a fan of both and I couldn’t stand the idea of choosing one of the other. I wish I could’ve just taken two internships but the hours wouldn’t permit it. I can’t even begin to describe to you how much it hurts my soul turning away from my dream being handed to me…
On the brighter side, I’ll be interning with Bunim/Murray Productions, the real world creators. They are pioneers of reality television and I could not be more excited to learn through their internship program. They rotate departments which means I get a good glimpse of everything. In the end, as much as I wanted to do Chelsea Lately, this is going to be the better “learning experience”. With Chelsea Lately, it would be very much like a production assistant position which I still love, don’t get me wrong but by the time I’m done with Bunim, I’ll have so much more to put on my resume including casting, something I have to do. It will all help me when I apply for “real jobs” after graduation.
I don’t know… I’m just in this crazy rut over how I had to turn down one of my dreams. You would think getting three offers would be great (which it is, of course) but it was SO hard having to choose ONE internship… after two of them being your very top choices. Just last week, I was terrified of not landing an internship. A week later, I get three offers within three days. It was insane… hard work really does pay off. I just wish I could it do all though. But I do plan on reapplying to Chelsea Lately if I stay out here after graduation. I think I just went with one dream but going to come back to the ohter at later time. I really hope everything works in the end but for now, I’m enjoying this California Livin and Hollywood dreamz~
Bio S22 E01
Hmmmm… starting this new blog on a whim. My name is Liz and I’m a 22 year old senior in college. I’m currently stuck at an internship doing things that I don’t like doing, researching a topic that I thought was perfect for me and dreading every single day. With graduation looming over me like a level 5 tropical storm, I decided to forgo any “real” studying and hard work and concentrate on what makes me happy—TV.
I could rattle on and on the countless Reality shows that I’ve subjected my poor little retinas into watching, but that would just be ludicrous. But, since you asked so nicely, here’s a short list of shows that I just can’t stop watching:
- The Real World: 25 seasons. I’m 22 years old. I’ve seen every episode. It’s sad isn’t it.
- Road Rules: 14 seasons. Let’s keep it in the BMP (Bunim Murray Productions, for all you newbies out ther) family. They’ve also made me a prisoner to my remote with the always entertaining spin-off of The Real World & Road Rules, The Challenge.
- Survivor: 22 seasons. I watched a few when I was younger, but I failed to appreciate the sheer brilliance of what some like to call ‘the granddaddy of all reality shows’. After taking a break, I caught up with the first all-star season and the rest as they say is pure history.
- Real Housewives of… the world?: Unfortunately that damn Bravo Network just keeps tempting me! First it was Orange County & NYC, but they just couldn’t stop there. Oh no! Atlanta (my personal fave!), New Jersey, Washington D.C., Beverly Hills and Miami! Andy Cohen, you’re an evil, evil man!
- Top Chef: 8 seasons deep in chorizo. Sadly I’ve only seen from season 3 on. But, nonetheless I like to think that I’ve done a good job watching every single episode since then!
Honestly, the list is endless and quite embarrassing. Any real reality TV connoisseur has also dutifully kept Jersey Shore, Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Teen Mom 1 & 2, 16 & Pregnant and Basketball Wives on their current rotation. Let’s face it, we all love a little bad TV. Well, in my case, a little is an understatement.
The Real World XXV: Back to Las Vegas
The granddaddy of all reality shows, Real World, returned to form a few weeks ago. Back to Las Vegas. Back to seven person cast (I was never a fan of the eight person casts that have plagued the RW houses for the past few seasons). At first I was skeptical of this Las Vegas cast, but I mean can you blame me? The first Las Vegas cast was too good to be true. Season 12 of the RV changed the game for the entire franchise. From three ways on the first night to a possible pregnancy and an unlimited amount of conflict. Prior to the first Las Vegas cast one can make a case that The Real World seasons had not only the their fair share of sexual encounters, but they truly had faced very important issues, but after the Las Vegas season, it seems as though casting shifted to more ‘pretty’ faces with less substance which caused to show to get quite stale.
Back to Las Vegas seems poised to pick up where the last Las Vegas cast left off. Already we have seen quite the bit of drama between cast members Leroy aka Roy Lee and stereotypical Northeast Bostonian douche bag Adam, several hookups and a close call eviction with Adam. My darkhorse for the season is Mike, who pretty much took over Frank’s role as the good ol’ boy. Mike is definitely not as smooth with the ladies as his other roommates, but he’s not afraid to stand up for himself and his beliefs, which could get him into trouble as the season progresses. If for nothing, it will at least make this season of The Real World bearable.
