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.

Extra Long Twin Bedding

I’m sure there’s some tall people out there needing extra long mattresses. I don’t require one, but I do enjoy the extra space that our California King provides.  After all Mr. Tall tends to dream he is punching people. It’s quite frightening to get slugged in the middle of the night.

My 13 year old is growing like a weed and may need an extra long twin mattress soon. We don’t have the space for anything bigger than a twin.  I’ve been looking at options and thought I’d share them with you.

7 Things You Should Never Ask Tall People

I’m really getting quite disgusted with all of the bad manners I am seeing everywhere! It’s really not okay to ask someone any weird thing that just pops into your mind. Really!  Let’s use some judgement people! Today’s P.S.A. is for all of the height challenged people out there. We know that most of you are just curious, but some of  you are just plain rude! Never ask these questions to tall people!

no i don't play basketball{Credit}

  1. Do you play basketball?  No, do you play mini-golf?
  2. How’s the weather up there? It’s raining (as I spit down on you)
  3. Why are you so tall?  – Uh, God made me this way!
  4. Have you always been tall? – I’m pretty much sure most tall people started out as normal sized embryos.
  5. How tall are you?  This is just bad manners.  We don’t ask you “how short are you?”
  6. Are your parents tall? No they are midgets, I was adopted.
  7. How big are your feet?   How big is your butt? Never discuss bodily sizes with anyone.

That is all! And if all else fails, remember this:
