an update on our attempt to be ellen’s road-trip team. DENIED! she instead chose a bunch of chicks from henderson, nevada who made a determinedly unfunny video. from a producer’s perspective, i get it. getting four chicks from a small town to drop everything, get in a car and do whatever you say for 10 days would be easier and cheaper than, say, getting four women in four different major cities, all quite willful and far away from los angeles, to convene on a moment’s notice. but damn, we’d be worth the hassle and expense! beth also astutely pointed out that ellen’s humor is at its finest when she has ordinary/unfunny people to play off of. faced with the likes of the extraordinary navarre chicks, it might not work as good. these are the rationales we’re using to stroke our collectively bruised ego. wah wah. regardless, we still love you, ellen!
