Next Top Model and Gossip Girl  
Hooray for new television.

Saleisha Ambreal

America's Next Top Model got started last night. It's tough to tell from the get-go, but so far Saleisha and Ambreal are my favorites for both looks and personality. Although the one with Asperger's could be interesting too.

After that was Gossip Girl--the parent-shocking young adult book series about an exclusive Manhattan private school reforged into teen soap opera by Josh Schwartz, creator of The O.C. It definitely started tamer and more innocent than the books, but I suppose it will get more toothsome as it goes. Being a diehard fan of the movie "Cruel Intentions," I did find it somewhat compelling. It definitely got points in my book for starting in the middle of the action rather than being a total fresh start.

the asperger's girl - did they come out and say she has AS on the show? a friend of mine pointed her out to me yesterday afternoon, and i went on the website and watched her video and, well, i believe she has AS.

Yeah, during intro interviews (where Tyra freely brings up anything she likes; i.e. childhood sexual abuse), she talked about how she had been diagnosed with that and something else, maybe an anxiety disorder.
