If you think you can armpit fart your way into a casting director’s heart, think again.
Pick up my book ME ON TV this Thursday – 7/26/12 – On Amazon/Kindle and learn all the SECRETS to help get you famous faster on ANY REALITY SHOW!
When you do, you’ll get a bunch of what I hope are cool free extra bonuses. I’m not saying they’ll be a double date with Arie and Sean, but I’m not saying they won’t be, either.*
*(They won’t be.)
I started The Bitchlorette blog in 2010 as a way to share my knowledge and expertise on all things reality TV.
As a reality television casting director who’s been in the biz for ten years, I have extensive experience under my belt on lots of different types of shows – competition, dating, game shows, wedding, animals, etc. I know tons of things about the inner workings of reality TV that seem so “no duh” to me after all these years, but it surprises and delights me when I share one of these tidbits of insight with someone who wants to get on TV and they are like: “WOW! I had no idea THAT’S how to do it!”
I know I’m not curing diseases or solving world hunger, but my career in reality TV has been highly fulfilling, especially when I get to help make people’s dreams come true. And I am very happy and proud to tell you all that I’ve written a book about it – and it’s FINALLY available on Amazon!
In fact, it’s a #1 BEST SELLER!!!!
Will. Write. More. Later.

In honour of the 2012 London Olympics, I tracked down a Stereotypically British Fellow to share the secret to his reality show success.
When you do, you’ll get a bunch of extra bonuses + a free unicorn.*
In the wacky world of reality TV, you just never know what shows might fit your situation. Case and point, my dear friend Jill just sent me this posting for a new show she’s working on. If you’re living in an awkward situation with a former sweetie, here’s your chance to get out of it!
CASTING COUPLES WHO ARE SEPARATED, DIVORCING OR DIVORCED AND STILL LIVING TOGETHER!
Are you or someone you know in a living situation because financially it’s too hard to go it alone? We’re casting people who are separated, getting a divorce or divorced and still living with their ex. Have you dreamt of pursuing a goal such as as performing, singing, dancing, cooking, changing careers or starting your own business, but you’re held back because of financial obligations with your divorce?
Do you want to move on with your life and your goals, but you can’t because of your ties and living arrangements with your ex? We can help!
This is a very thoughtful show for a major news network. Is it hard to move forward when you’re still trying to pay a mortgage or get out from being underwater on your payments? Are you stuck in a rental situation you can’t afford on your own? We want to hear everyone’s stories and help the people move forward in their lives and their goals.
Please feel free to e-mail this or share this with your friends or family members. This is a wonderful show that will explore the current state of relationships in this hard hit economy.
Please e-mail me here or at email@example.com
Look Ma, no buffering!
Dying to see my 20/20 interviews back to back? Well, here’s your chance.

Watch this interview with me on 20/20 that aired Friday night, talking about why Reality Show hopefuls lie to get on TV… and why that is a REALLY BAD IDEA!
And, watch America’s Got Talent tonight to see if they mention the Tim Poe-calypse media scandal.

I hope these are enlightening!
Kim asked: How legit are those reality show websites that you have to sign up for?
The Bitchlorette says: Depends on the site. As with any website, you have to make sure you’re not handing your personal info over a phisher or spammer or hacker (those sounds like celebrity baby names, no?). I’m a fan of simply going to the network website or production company to apply for a show – but often times you might not know which is what or where to find them. So yes, sites like RealityWanted.com are a great resource to see what’s out there. You do have to sign up, add a photo and fill in some basic stats to get full access, though. They also offer a paid membership for those who want to get a more robust experience. Also, Infolist.com is newer site with less bells and whistles than RealityWanted, but it offers up a lot of Now Casting info and show biz news and happenings. You also have to sign up for this, though no pictures o height/weight stats are required. I’m a member of both!
