Last year, gossip hack Shallon Lester left the NY Daily News for the lush, tempting pastures of an MTV reality television show. The show, Downtown Girls, premieres next week. What could go wrong?

Jessica Wakeman did a long Q&A with Shallon, including this bit:

Are you concerned about editing? Many a reality show star before you has been upset with they way they're edited to look on TV.

No, not really. Obviously, they're going to have to edit to give some continuity in certain scenes. But if you don't say stupid stuff, they're not going to be able to edit you saying stupid stuff. And I really trust the producers that they're not trying to make some ruinous television show that wrecks my life.

Mmmm hmm.
