Wait, you mean things like Duck Dynasty and Pawn Stars are put on and fake? Get out of here... Reality TV is... Real!

The what company?

I guess you can make a living that way, if you have zero dignity.

They may be ready-made for a garbage "reality" TV show, but her psychosis is very, very real.

Considering how out-of-touch with reality Amy and her husband seemed, either they were really nuts or just playing it up for cameras for their 15 minutes.
 
2013-10-12 08:53:35 AM  
The article didn't say that at all... it just said they were gonna get a reality show, not that they were faking it.

I think they are nuts and just amped it up even higher for TV.  Seems to have been effective...

One of their workers did a Reddit AMA basically affirming all the crazy about that place. They went through 100s of employees. They may have been angling for their own reality series I don't doubt that...but per their former workers they really are that badshiat crazy. Plus all the weird legal shiat they've been feloniously involved in. And it [potentially, allegedly?] being Fronty McFronties, though I don't think that was ever proved just a lot of ppl thought so.

Yeah, I think it's entirely possible for them to be batshiat crazy and having amped things up without having a specific goal in mind before finally making use of the opportunity and running with it.

So glad I cancelled my cable TV years ago. As long as this horse sh*t from TV execs continue, I refuse to even allow a penny of my money to go to them.

Couldn't obsessively seeking the spotlight through ever crazier antics, even if staged, be considered a form of crazy?

Logic fail. Just because they get a reality tv show because of their craziness doesn't mean said craziness is an act. They can actually be crazy and any profit they make from it is incidental. Its sad though that we seem to reward douchebags like this by allowing them to profit from their douchiness.
 
2013-10-12 09:18:08 AM  
Great, another reality show about people i don't care about, and where they create drama and bullshiat for the amusement of people who watch such drivel as "lizard lick towing", "WWE", "Jerry Springer" ,"Real housewives" or other bullshiat made up drama shows. If you are amused and entertained by such, kill yourself, or try reading a book, on second thought, just kill yourself.

No channel, no contract... they are full of crap. They don't HAVE a reality show. They WANT a reality show. And God willing the reality that they are universally reviled will biatchsmack them and they get nothing.

I hope.

A channel and debut date for the new reality show has not yet been announced.

So...where's the reality show? You would think a network would want to start promoting this right away. Are they just going to take a couple of Sony Handycams and upload the footage on Youtube? Every time I think their insanity is an act they pull some genuinely baffling nonsense like announcing a reality show when nobody in their right mind would do business would them. They need serious mental help.

FTA:  A channel and debut date for the new reality show has not yet been announced.

So, they're basically saying "We want to further degrade what little dignity we have left by being part of a reality show", not "We will be degrading what little dignity we have left with our own reality show"?

you realize most normal  people continue to subscribe to cable/satellite? And that it's only amongst "internet" people that it's hip to say "I cut the cord/don't own a tv"?

No channel + no date = no show.

Even if they have filmed episodes, that does not mean it will ever be seen.  Most likely they are just shopping it.  Does not mean anyone will buy it.

The weirdest part of the Amy's show was when the husband turned to Ramsay and said something like, "You're not the gangster here; I am".
 
2013-10-12 09:40:46 AM  
Guess this answers the question, "Whatever happened to freak shows."
 
2013-10-12 09:41:52 AM  
I admit to youtubing (it's a word) their appearance with Gordon Ramsay -- however, it was difficult to watch. I can't imagine watching an entire series of that dysfunction.

In other words, the situation is the same as it was at the end of May:

If your bet was 'Less than a month' on how long it would take Amy's Baking Company to get a reality show, claim your prize. Now get the *bleep* out of here and don't come back

Yeah. "Followup".

The sound like a guy I worked with years ago he always had some "deal" in the works. He would talk about something he was working on. He would go on about some TV show, movie, club where he was going to make a fortune, then he would hit the person up for money. After a while the only thing people would say to him was no.

Idiot Coworker: Hey there how are you doing? I got this thing...

Coworker: NO!

IC: But you havent let me.....

C: NOOOO!

He was off in some fantasy world or just a con artist like at ABC.

Has the place closed yet?

They are wishing and hoping that because they ANNOUNCED the reality show it means it really, really is going to happen. No channel, no contract, no debut date.

Sounds like Amy's infantile reasoning ability is at work again.

/even if she gets the show, hands up for those who think that she is such a lunatic that she will be deemed too difficult to work with and blow her chance.

Nevermind the fact that these people are batshiat insane. The fact that they steal the tips from the servers alone should be enough to drive these people into the ground and never return, despite how much money they throw at the place.

I remember the golden age. Friday night lineup: Stargate: SG1, Stargate: Atlantis, Battlestar Galactica. A Whole host of other shows: Eureka, etc. Highest ratings the network ever saw. Beat out the some of the regular networks on Friday night too. Then they hired that biatch who used to run the WE channel. And then came WWE. To which the answer was 'well, it's got great ratings."  If ratings are all that matters, and not an actual connection to science fiction/fantasy, they might as well just air soft core porn a la' Cinemax saturday nights. I mean, after all, RATINGS are what matters.

If I were a reality show producer, I'd never EVER want to work with those two.

Can you imagine trying to tell Amy what to do, give her stage directions, ask her to come to place X at time Y, deal with her cringing husband running interference, and then, after all that, feel the brunt of her wrath when the show makes her look like a narcissistic harpy instead of the sweet little angel she thinks she is?
