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 roommate committed suicide a few days later.
