The BOSTON HERALD reports that “Olympic gymnast Alicia Sacramone is doing back-flips trying to land a TV gig to showcase her love of fashion and design.”
The Herald has the intimate details of Sacramone’s quest to land a reality show, which include a “sort of test reel - for Bravo, A & E, Style and MTV.”
You thinking what I’m thinking? I think we have potential for a serious trainwreck reality show on our hands, considering the famewhore that Sacramone has turned out to be. But I doubt we’ll ever see Alicia back on the little screen, if her “reel” is any indication.
For her reel, Sacramone - who designed all her costumes for the Summer Olympics - treated 13-year-old Sarah DiNatale of Needham to a makeover.
First off, the gals had a breakfast of champions at Sonsie. Then it was hair and makeup lessons at Salon Persona, where the gymnast’s mom, Gail, works. After that, they hit H & M, where Alicia whipped together a rock-star outfit for Sarah for under $100.
And just in case the teen makeover thing doesn’t fly, Alicia has a Plan B. She and her cameras popped in on Boston designer Denise Hajjar, where Alicia applied for an internship - yet another reality show idea.
Damn, I was hoping her *show* had a chance.
