Personal Quotes (1)

I don't like doing reality shows such as the ones I have done because the scripted and misleading direction they give impresses viewers to assume it's real. They've fed me lines that I wouldn't have conjured myself and have directed me to insult cast members I actually like -- in the name of interesting content.
