Have you dreamed of being on a reality tv show? If you’re a tall woman and own your own business than now’s your opportunity!

Hmm. I fall into this category.  Maybe I should apply! However, I don’t think that my life of sitting here blogging and finding you cool clothes is that terribly exciting!  So, I’m going to just pass this on to all of you.  I am not affiliated with this company, so I can’t vouch for the validity of the offer. Here is the email I received with the details:

Reality TV Show Casting Letter


Dear Krista,

Please allow me to introduce myself. My name is Karan Vyas and I am a casting associate with Red Varden Studios, a Los Angeles-based production company that develops television series for a variety of cable networks.

We are currently casting for a new reality TV show featuring women who are 6′ or taller that work together or own a business. We are looking for interesting and charismatic characters for their own show. Intriguing tall women and their tall friends/family are encouraged to apply!

To be considered, candidates should submit the following to photographs of all potential candidates (both group photos and individual photos of each candidate), a description of the roles or jobs of each candidate, the personal story of the candidates and why those stories would make for compelling television, the city and state they live in, and contact information (name, phone number, email). We also ask that you help spread the word by your Facebook wall, website, and physical location.

Thank you for your time.
