This is the conclusion I arrived at this morning after reading about a new series called Starved. One of its marketing hooks is that it uses a cast that has "actual eating disorders." Really? This is news? What about every other series on television? They're full of *thesparexics. It's sometimes difficult to distinguish between an actual thesparexic and a coke head, but drug addiction is technically a disorder so it might not matter.
So today it dawned on me that I don't vomit enough. Couple that fact with my penchant for cherry cobbler at 11pm at night and you can see why "Starved" producers weren't knocking on my door.
The thing is, I can change. I just need to get a little bit more discipline and I'll be in business. No more snacks of roquefort cheese with syrah. No more walking up hills. I'm going to become a weight-loss extreme...right after lunch. Then IT'S ON!
Either that or you'll see me on a new show called "Stuffed," a series that uses actors who finish their meals. In Los Angeles, that's going to be hard to cast.
