Tonight’s “True Life” explored the stories of two young people who couldn’t break out of their siblings’ shadows. We had an opportunity to check in with one of them to find out how her life has changed since filming wrapped — take a look at Joanie’s follow-up below.
I think Maureen is amazing because she does a ton of stuff, she’s good at it and she’s kept her grades up really high. In high school, she had three different jobs. Maureen and I have done everything together, and I wouldn’t trade her for anything else in the world. I like being around Maureen, and we got so close in high school. I felt like it could just carry on in college so I applied to RPI, but then I realized that even if I went to a different school that was better for me, we’d stay close no matter what.
I’m really glad I did “True Life.” It was a shock when the producers contacted me after seeing an article about Maureen and me in the local paper, but I did think it was cool that I was interesting enough to have been selected. Though I didn’t like talking about my feelings, I did like hanging out with the crew. It’s awesome knowing all these little things about film production now.
