egan Hauserman finally breaks her silence on the tragedy that completely turned the world of reality television, and Megan’s own reality, upside down.
I usually don’t like to title the post with a quote, but there just isn’t a better way in this case.
You all know by now that I’m a fan of Megan Hauserman. In fact, I would go as far as to say that she is the only reality television personality that I’m actually a fan of. If you’re unfamiliar with Megan, make sure to read my previous featured posts on her, and you’ll get familiar. She’s someone you should know for one reason or another.
First and foremost, she’s a reality television superstar. I mentioned briefly that Megan had achieved reality gold in landing her own spinoff dating show appropriately titled Megan Wants A Millionaire and that it was prematurely cancelled. Honestly, I wasn’t sure how comfortable the TV star was with speaking about what had happened. Now, in this weeks issue of People, Megan sets the record straight on the real life tragedy that could have prematurely ended her shot at television fame.
The interview is really good. It reveals a lot about what Megan went through during this trying time, and it even reveals a few details about the story that the public hadn’t yet been exposed to. It doesn’t, however, champion Megan for all that she has accomplished and overcome. It should have… because she deserves it! She’s a good person at heart. While this may be a time for, as Megan says, reevaluating and re-prioritizing, Hauserman’s future is bright, and I predict that for us, it will be documented by Vh1.
Read People’s full story on Megan Hauserman via her blog.
“When I was eighteen, River Phoenix was far and away my hero. Think of all those early great performances — My Own Private Idaho. Stand by Me. I always wanted to meet him. One night, I was at this Halloween party, and he passed me. He was beyond pale — he looked white. Before I got a chance to say hello, he was gone, driving off to the Viper Room, where he fell over and died. That’s a lesson.”—
o remember why I started writing and where I want to go.
I’ve had a lot of fun writing. I like that I started writing this blog in an attempt to rally for a job blogging with Vh1. I really like that Megan Hausermanof Vh1 fame has reposted my blog and contact information on her website in support. More importantly, I love that I kept writing both because I wanted to, and because people have actually been reading.
Anyway, I started by posting some NYU film critiques, and by reviewing some reality shows. Once I started to pick up the pace, I started to focus my writing on things I was really interested in like Hollywood, inspiring facts, the fame platform, bad girl bombshells, and, of course, Paul Newman.
Having said that, and while I do love me some Jwoww, I just wanted to remind myself, and hopefully inspire at least one other reader, of why I dedicated this blog to my hero Paul Newman.
Paul was never the greatest technical actor, but he worked extremely hard, he never gave up on his dream, and above all else, he had star quality. More importantly than what he had, is what he did. As of 2008 (it’s now 2010, remember), Paul Newman is credited as donating over $280 million to charity, all due to a good head on his shoulders, a heart in the right place, and a massive platform.
Cool Hand Luke is my favorite Paul Newman movie because of it’s message:
There are always going to be people in your life who don’t get it. They’ll feel like they should have power over you, for one reason or another, but if you’re the right kind of person, a person with that star quality, that little something special, then they’ll always be a step behind, wondering what makes you tick.
