When it comes to most Reality TV programs, I'd say probably less than half of what's going on is truly reality. The rest of it would be scripted and creative editing. After watching the third episode of The Rachel Zoe Project last night, I'm going to say it's 100% scripted and its sole purpose is to sell Starbucks drinks.
Crazy? Perhaps. As I watched last night's show I couldn't help but notice the heavy, make that Venti, Starbucks placement. Now I've got nothing against Starbucks.... far from it. I'm drinking a tall coffee right now and the cup's logo is facing my computer screen out of respect for this posting.
I wonder if the relentless product bombardment helped Starbucks today? Did they notice a spike in unbelievably skinny women in over-sized accessories this morning? Hmmmm.....
Were there more cute gay stylists/ hair & makeup artists/ assistants than usual stopping by Starbucks to get the latest must have accessory after last night's show. That's it--- this season's must have item isn't an orange faux fur vest or horn rimmed glasses. N0! The all the rage--- rush out and get it right now--- it goes with everything adornment is a Starbucks coffee cup. Thank you Rachel Zoe. You've validated my addiction.
So I got out my Canon PowerShot (which sounds like a gay porn title) and documented just some of the Starbucks drink placements.
Here, the Venti Starbucks drink compliments Rachel's hopefully fake fur jacket.
I was in a Starbucks last night (thank you) on Larchment Blvd in LA and I think that adorable hair & makeup artist pictured above in the center was in line in front of me. I'm not 100% positive, but I do think it was him. If that was him, wow he is really cute in person.
There were more scenes with Starbucks cups if you can believe it but that was all I could take. I probably need more Starbucks.
Thank you Bravo, Rachel Zoe, and Starbucks--- you make a dynamic team.
