Casting Director Bundles Reality TV Knowledge Into New E-book

Casting director Sarah Monson (pictured), who blogs as The Bitchlorette and contributes to various online outlets, is reaching out to would-be reality TV show contestants in an unusual way. She has authored a new e-book titled Me on TV: The First Ever Kick-Ass Guide to Get You on Any Reality Show, officially released today.

The price for this 130-page tome is relatively steep – $47. But Monson, whose credits include Blind Date, The Bachelor and Survivor, insists she has personally put her methods to the test:

On each episode, a pair of celebrities are shown videotaped rants made by someone who “hates” them and then track down those people for a “surprise” encounter. There’s no doubt the underlying issue here is serious, but nothing in Barnes’ piece suggests the show will come close to a strange bit of family gravitas linkage involving Gregorisch-Dempsey:

The roommate committed suicide a few days later.
