The return of 30 Rock included a spoof reality show called MILF Island, which in turn included a champion named DeBorah, alternately praised and imitated by the characters within 30 Rock. It turns out the real-life DeBorah, Deidre Goodwin, is a theater actress who plays Sheila in A Chorus Line and was Velma in Chicago. Goodwin told Entertainment Weekly that filming of MILF Island involved cockroach eating and "cooter slams:"

There was a girl who ate a cockroach.

A real cockroach?
Well, they used chocolate cockroaches. But during a close-up, they made her hold a real one up to her lips. And then they didn't even show that part! Poor thing. For me — you probably saw glimpses of this — there was a ''stick dance.'' On set they'd told us my adversary was a very sweet girl, and I was [directed to be] raunchy, slapping my ass and everything. Then they had me shoot it again by myself. And you know that video by Whitesnake? I did that.

You did your best Tawny Kitaen?
Crawling, cooter slam, flipping the hair, the whole thing. It was awesome.

Should I ask the definition of ''cooter slam''?
Oh, a cooter slam is when you jump in the air, and you land into a split. You don't just find the split. You jump in the air, open your legs, and...Slam!

MILF Island was woven throughout 30 Rock's post-writers-strike premier. In this scene, TV executive Jack Donaghy recounts DeBorah's background as a "struggling artist living in LA:"

Also in the Entertainment Weekly article, Goodwin brainstormed some ideas for a spinoff, including one in which DeBorah does "all these serious interviews, but always half-naked."

If MILF Island really does get turned into a spinoff, pray that a comic writer like Tina Fey gets her hands on the concept before the reality television guys do. Pray hard.
