In my fits of sleep last night, I happened to catch an episode of Made on MTV. I had to preempt this statement because let me make something clear . . . I-do-not-watch Made. However, I found it odd that Diem was the focus in this episode . . . you know, cancer survivor Diem from the Real World/Road Rules Challenges . . the one who took off the wig in that Rambo-esque moment when they had to swim through the mud, and she rocked her buzzed-cut au naturale look? Oh yeah, and the one who dates C.T. Anyways, she wanted to be made into a ballroom dancer or something like that . . . like I said, I was kind of sleepy.
I just found it weird that she was in Made. Just like I find it weird that Mike White is a contender on the Amazing Race. You know, Mike, as in the father and son team? Mike, the one who so shamelessly hit on the virgin bride in last night's episode? Well this reality show contestant is also the guy who has starred in the movie The School of Rock as Ned Schneebly. Oh yeah, he wrote it too. After a little imdb-wicki digging, I learn that he also wrote Nacho Libre, The Good Girl, Orange County (in which he also starred alongside Jack Black) and has been in some episodes of Freaks and Geeks and Dawson's Creek . . . not too schneebly.
Just a random post on some random thoughts. Does anyone else find this cross-over idea weird? I guess I just like to keep my reality show actors and real actors in their individual compartments and feel all funny inside when I see them where they shouldn't be . . .
