The "lucky Dug's wife's not a jealous prude" trifecta--Naked Girls Reading, Playboy, and Victoria's Secret Model Search: How many married 44 year old men get to spend their work days with hot model wannabes and nude lit majors? Dug hit the triple jackpot in October, and lived to tell about it. First, he shot at Michelle L'Amour's burlesque show and Naked Girls Reading event, for Carson Daly. Here's the clip.
I didn't think they wore clothes?! Dug then shot a Sizzle Reel for a potential Playboy fashion reality show. Yeah, I thought "Playboy fashion" was an oxymoron, but evidently they do have a young cadre of hot, fashion buyers, for the parts of the magazine where people aren't just wearing their birthday suits.
The talent were clothed, but barely.
My darling husband came home complaining about such sound nightmares as crotch skimming mini skirts that wouldn't cover the mic power packs, noisy see-through, plastic raincoats, and skin tight, cleavage baring tops--impossible to hide mics under, without a lot of pushing, pulling and wrangling. Awww. Let me break out my tiny violin.
Secretly a sadist? Then, Dug finished the month with a Victoria's Secret Model Casting Call. Thousands of hot, model wannabes stood in the freezing rain for upwards of 5 hours on Saturday, in their stiletto heels and skimpy outfits.
The vast majority of high heeled hopefuls were rewarded with a few minutes before the judges and a coupon for a free lace thong with bra purchase, before being paraded through the room, and directly out to the alley. I "almost" feel sorry for them. Nah.
Approximately 30 were chosen for a closer look, and then they narrowed the pool of thousands to nine. Winners will go to Victoria's Secret Boot Camp.
CBS will broadcast the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show on Tuesday, Dec. 1 at 10/9 central.
