On last night's Sunset Tan, the unthinkable occurred: the Olly Girls, whose airheaded misadventures in artificial pigmentation are responsible for the most compelling half-hour of tanning-related reality television on basic cable, were let go in a boardroom dismissal ceremony that would make even the heartless Donald wince from its cruelty.

While we realize that all will probably be forgiven and the girls will be back to spray-tanning grade-schoolers by the end of next episode, it's hard not to worry that the Ollys, cast out onto the streets of Hollywood with only one marketable skill*, will soon be reduced to applying bronzer to sun-averse Japanese tourists in front of the Chinese Theatre for five dollars a pop.
