Insiders in the New York area report that the casting call for Paris Hilton's upcoming reality show -- where she's going to choose a new BFF -- had dismal results. They say only 40 to 50 people showed up.
Said Paris on her MySpace page: there were “NO open calls for the show” and “every event is exclusive and hand-picked by invitation only ... I didn't want my potential BFFs to have to wait in a long open-call lines.”
In fairness, this is probably true. I did some research over on RealityWanted.com, which passed me over to parisbff.com, which said the following:
We are coming to the following cities and holding “Meet and Greet Mixers” where we will scout potential cast members who will be invited to attend Interviews with our casting directors on the following days. To be invited to the Mixers, email firstname.lastname@example.org with Name, Pic and Phone Number.
To be scheduled for an interview, apply on www.ParisBff.com/viplist.
Tragically, the application cut-off was April 15, or I swear to you guys I would be preparing my application tape right this moment. Maybe I should send them an email just in case? I've never wanted to be on a reality TV show in my whole life, but I totally want to do this one.
