A: The backside blessed tend to look fat in loose clothes, especially when the fabric doesn’t hug the cheeks enough to define them individually. If a rear looks like it has one giant cheek because of "unrevealing" clothes, people will run for cover, afraid that a giant amoeba is after them to absorb them or that the Blob is on the loose. On the other hand, if two separate voluptuous cheeks are defined well individually and clearly by form-fitting, "revealing" fabric, women can look very hot, or pretty, or cuddly, or yummy, or female, or adorable—depending on the lady and the rear. Revealing that the backside blessed can be beautiful—even compared to fashion model hotties—was one of our points. Be aware that our ladies’ pretty rumps are our vitally necessary metaphoric symbols of Hollywierd/media hypocrisy.
A: How did we find them? We advertised high and low for them!
We won't comment on J.Lo’s rear except to notice that when it was at its biggest she was called the lady with the "world-class ass" right on Fox News. Since she had the biggest one of the lady stars, and she was getting teased for it right and left, one can only conclude that her big butt, which even South Park made fun of, was the object of adoration by the media since no one seemed to be able to stop talking about it. (Her rear in her Selena movie was adorable, big, and unforgettable.) But now notice that the rest of the stars and ALL the supermodels have smaller than average or just average sized rears. Is the media saying that world class asses are large asses and that all the supermodels are gluteally challenged and derriere deficient? Obviously the media, Hollywood, and damn near everyone else is very confused when it comes to rear ends. Our advice: read the info on our sites—you just might learn something!
A: You'll have to ask them directly to get a precise answer. But we surely don’t agree with the jigglefest or sexpot references. The ladies are playful and innocent, not soliciting sex or making sexual comments, advances, or references, like "sexpots" do. And, unlike fashion models, they're not trying to jiggle, therefore your "jigglefest" reference applies to models, not to our show’s ladies. But if you want the logical reasons why they'd want to get in on our walking or booty dancing clips phenomenon:
A: The ones we dealt with were operating in a loving environment that brought out the best in them. The bodily beauty you see speaks for itself. The inner beauty you see is in most of us, but for most of us it never gets the space—or the inspiration—to manifest itself. The innocence is seen because they're young and because they were encouraged to find the realness and the inner child within.
Joan of Arcadia showed a beautiful young lady with a big heart, a blooming soul, and with courage and innocence and sweetness all mixed together brilliantly by the writers and directors and, most especially, by the actress herself, Amber Tamblyn. Ironically, even though in the show she believes in God because she keeps getting and filling requests by Him, in her real life she's an agnostic who finds her spirituality in a fulfilling extended family life. To add an even more ironic finishing touch to all this, one reason she's such a wonderful actress is that she follows her dad’s advice about acting: be real and be yourself and don’t get caught acting. One could write a book about the paradoxes and logical twists all this adds up to, but it should suffice to point out that the sweet, real, spiritually and emotionally alive lady that one sees on their show is totally genuine—the heart and soul shown by Amber/Joan are as real as the water in a bubbling brook, the wind in the trees, the colors in a rainbow, or the light in a sunset. And yet she's "acting." Many loving things must have happened to this young lady for an extended period—she claims to have dozens of moms and dads—to give her the warmth and security she emanates so naturally.
We say about the walking or booty dancing clips ladies that they're operating in a loving environment that brings out the best in them. This was exactly what happened to Amber/Joan. Your question about our show’s ladies is: Are they really that way, because they seem too good to be true. And the answer is that the beauty and trueness you see in and hear from our ladies is as real and true as it is in Amber/Joan, which is to say very. Beauty is the response to love, security, and inspiration.
Are there other sides to our ladies and Amber/Joan, sides that are less sweet, kind, and beautiful? Of course! No one was brought up perfectly. But if we were to focus on the characters’/actresses’ weaknesses, we’d be creating yet another reality show highlighting people’s worst sides. Do we really need another ugly-fest like The Simple Life? (Did we even need the first one? Or the second?)
It’s every parent’s job to try to bring out the best in his/her offspring. Amber’s real parents and stand-in parents and, on the show, Joan’s parents, siblings, and "God" all seem to be doing a great job of exactly this. Our show’s real significant others as well as the director and the ladies’ kind and happy relationships with one another also seem to be having this benevolent effect.
Our walking or booty dancing clips ladies really are as sweet as you see in the clips when they're treated like the loveable humans they are. When they're not treated that way, they shift into the survival defenses we all shift into most of the time—the ones that keep us safe, sane, and secure. Happily, a good enough, safe enough, and loving enough environment allows us to drop defenses and just BE. At such times we’re as real as we’ll ever be. (Read Abe Maslow’s classic Toward a Psychology of Being.) If this happens on a reality show, it helps the genre live up to its name. On the other hand, if directors are coaxing people like Paris and Nichole to act as morally bankrupt as they can for ratings, isn't that just acting (bad acting at that) on a reality show (that’s supposed to be about reality), since they're not really that shallow and disgusting?
All of this reminds us of when you're taking a dog for a walk and coaxing him to do his business on the neighbor’s lawn. The "ratings" you are trying for is avoiding having to clean it up when he does it in your own yard, or worse—on the rug. The Simple Life’s directors have coaxed their "dogs" to dump on the public airwaves, and the relief the dogs got is that finally they were getting fame to go along with the fortunes they already had, while the director got his palm greased with silver (ka-ching!), and at the same time he was questioned by the producer about how he succeeded so nicely: "Was it Ex-lax? Surely it must have been Ex-Lax!" We’ll avoid discussing the analogy between the porn these two ladies were involved in and the way your dog humped the neighbor’s dog once he was done with his business, adding the insult of pregnancy to the injury of a pile of dog dirt. Folks, it just doesn’t bear thinking about . . . . .
Most reality shows are about the fake, the phoney, the cynical, the envious, the greedy, the salacious, the backstabbing, the pretentious, the jealous, the immoral, and the amoral—not to mention the proliferation of unhealthily scrawny stereotypes about body image. It was our intention for our walking or booty dancing clips to be an antidote for all that—especially when it comes to all the young lives in serious jeopardy due to the hazardous effects of the media’s skinny female role models. Hopefully you are cheering us on in our quest!
