Bozell reviews the WB’s new reality show, “The Starlet.”
But these exploitative titillation scenes [involving a simulated striptease] were nothing compared to the weekly screen test, where the aspirants were told they’d be filmed kissing one of their fellow contestants in the hot tub in a lesbian love scene. Show host Katie Wagner explained: “Angelina Jolie, Hilary Swank and Charlize Theron have all played roles in which they’ve had to kiss other women. If they can do it, so can you.” But at least Swank and Theron played decidedly un-sexy roles in critical-darling dysfunction dramas that won Best Actress Oscars. These aspiring actresses, on the other hand, were made to reenact a soft-porn-style scene from the forgettable hot-cop drama “Fastlane,” which lasted a few weeks on Fox in 2002.
