Yesterday a couple of major television news stations in Oklahoma City did full on reports about a new Bravo Housewives Franchise coming to town. Radar Online was quick to pick up on the story. It went something like this: Some lady named Annette Latham sets up a Facebook page. It’s a fanpage for RHOKC. Her first post “reads” as follows.
“Give an entrepreneur a dream and a plan, you will get success every time. Annette Colbert-Latham pitched the idea to Bravo TV (NBC/Universal) with the assistance of an Entertainment Lawyer – Gary Laurie, Esq (NY/NJ). Putting the elements together brings Oklahoma more exposure into 7 wonderfully challenged families. Oklahoma City is known for its Energy-based and Agriculture-based community grows up. With a visionary Mayor Mick Cornett, the City now host a venue for world-class entertainment and a National Basketball Team – the Thunders. Timing is ripe to display the growth and integrity of its people. With a multicultural cast, the show brings a freshness and clarity about life in Oklahoma City. Visage Production, Inc. partnered with Tony Que Burroughs of Ark Studios for production.”
Did anyone else immediately assume that Rachel Jeantel helped her with her wording? No? Me neither. So Annette has her a real live entertainment lawyer, Gary Laurie, click his name to go to his site. No really you want to, it is practically non-existent. But let’s forge ahead, shall we? Next we have two “production companies” I have never heard of who have never produced for Bravo. Do you see where I am going here?
But the news stations see nothing strange and forge ahead. Because filming in the middle of tornado fucking alley seems like a good idea. Oh wait, it’s housewives. Maybe that would be fun. They go to “film the housewives in their natural habitat. Some bar somewhere. They are told to just talk to each other. Production guy is all “quiet on the set!” and “rolling”! The reporter is really overly enthusiastic. She slides right of the whole “nothing has been confirmed” part and now this story is all over the Internet.
The real tea is the Annette Latham chick is a real piece of work. I have a feeling she will be in need of ole Gary Laurie, Esquire very soon. How can someone with her level of illiteracy dupe two major news stations?
