In May 2006, I forgot to post this, given the issues Lucire was having with certain staff members pretending they were God and failing dismally. The MTV reality show, 8th & Ocean, featured us, though I wonder how “reality” it was. From the synopsis:
Britt, on the other hand, is facing her own set of problems. The good news: she’s been cast for an 8–10 page editorial spread for Lucire Magazine. The bad news? The skimpy gold swimsuit they want her to wear makes her feel very uncomfortable.
Now, I know some of those folks at Irene Marie Management, whose models appeared in this show, and they are top-notch and ethical. But I don’t recall anyone talking to me about Britt Koth or a shoot down in Fla., and a 10-pager normally would come across my desk, but whatever the case, it was nice to get a mention on MTV, reality or ﬁction. (I think it was a spec shoot, but not actually organized by us.) Not bad for a little Kiwi magazine that the naysayers, both external and internal(!), tried to kill.
I will admit that have seen Britt and I think she looks great in a swimsuit. But Britt: whatever the stylist found, it has nothing to do with me! Put simply, I—and Lucire—wouldn’t put a nice Christian girl from Minn. through that. I have my values, even if the last time I defended someone about what was said on TV, some difﬁculties arose …
We can add this appearance to those on Two for the Money, which I notice is now out on DVD (even if the movie never made it on to the big screens here), and Snakes on a Plane (remember that movie?!). There are many more, including TV shows and advertisements, but it is particularly nice to get one of our properties woven in to the storyline like this. Posted by Jack Yan, 09:22
