A homeless girl and sometime blogger named Bri just secured an internship at Elle under advice columnist E. Jean. Her journey from the Wal-Mart parking lot she lives in to Jean's East Coast mountain office started five months ago, and — this being Elle — involved a reality show. In April, Bri discovered an ad for writers and fashionistas to enter an advice-columnist competition. She entered and told her story, thinking she'd never hear back. But then she got a call to audition for a reality show produced by Fremantle Media, the company behind American Idol and America's Got Talent. The winner would receive the internship at Elle. Sneaky ad, that.
Bri wrote in April that she bombed the audition, which was horribly embarrassing, uncomfortable, and unpleasant. So she decided to write Jean herself and explain what happened. Jean actually answered the letter in her column. In her reply, she offered Bri a four-month internship, and wrote, "At the end of the four months, if you don’t have a job and an awesome place to live, I will become your intern." Bri just made contact with Jean and accepted the position yesterday.
So if Jean doesn't need an intern anymore, hopefully plans for another intern reality show at Elle are scrapped. Stylista didn't do the magazine any favors, and besides, they've already inked a deal to let MTV film Olivia Palermo "working" at the magazine for The City. Now, if Bri doesn't land a job and an "awesome place to live," a reality show about E. Jean interning in a Wal-Mart parking lot would be worth considering.
