Devorah Rose, you either love her or hate her. A mainstay on the social and editorial fixture (she is the Editor in Chief of the highly acclaimed ‘Social Life’) we decided to take her aside on the eve of her debut on the highly new inflammatory program CW’s ‘High Society,’ and find out for ourselves what makes her tick, how she feels about her impending stardom, society and of course those in the media (never mind her equally contentious cast mate Jules Kirby) that like to occasionally (metaphorically speaking) ‘pound her to the pavement.’
What follows is an intriguing take on the current darling du jour. No matter how you feel about her she’s certainly got us all talking and we’re willing to bet that she’s going to be here for a while…That said, you be the judge; villainess or victim?- Scallywag.
SCV: How is that you got involved with the production of the reality show High Society and why?
DR: Well there was this stork and he dropped me down one of the producer’s chimneys. Oh wait, wrong myth…
SCV: Apart from this show, what is your opinion on most reality shows?
DR: One of the few shows I watch on TV is Law&Order: SVU and now I’m tuning in to High Society as well. I’m actually incredibly entertained by High Society – it’s a train-wreck of epic proportions.
SCV: It seems that the producers of High Society have deliberately set to ridicule the cast and have some sadistic he said / she said game going on…What do you think?
DR:I think the show is a bit more tongue-in-cheek than it’s being given credit for. The plasticity of this social scene is clearly highlighted but, then again, if anyone is shocked by what they see, just imagine what happens when the cameras are off. At the end of the day, the social circuit is so saccharine it’s been known to cause cancer in lab rats. And apparently in Jules Kirby too.
(editor’s note- it’s no secret that these two have a venomous rapport with each other, which if you are an ardent fan of the show you will clearly have figured out by now…)
