Inside A Radar Editorial Meeting

One clumsy editor accidentally dialed out on his cellphone during the editorial confab — and a six-minute segment of the insipid brainstorming session was captured on voice mail. On the recording, staffers at Radar are heard discussing a photo spread for an upcoming issue, with [Maer] Roshan prompting his underlings to come up with ideas to illustrate “homemade porn.”

“It should say ‘amateur’ on the top,” suggested one helpful staffer.

“We should definitely get models who are really hot,” said another.

Another scribe proposed they use “all beautiful girls and just one really ugly guy.” A voice resembling that of photo director Greg Garry supported the notion of using models instead of regular people because “porn people are ugly. They are, like, really average.”

“No, they should definitely be hot,” Roshan agreed, ordering someone to “look at Details. See what they’re doing.”
