... and, Erica, You're No Larry Joe

 Posted on June 06, 2010 in Uncategorized

Today's Houston Chronicle has an interview with Erica Rose, a Houston socialite who is going to law school (she's a 3L at my alma mater, University of Houston) to advance her career in reality TV. (I'll link to it when a link is available.)

The last line of the article:

Q: What's next for you?A: After graduating from law school, I plan to pursue a career in entertainment law. I'd love to have my own show like Judge Judy.

reminded me of Julie Brown's "'Cause I'm a Blonde" (it may be painful, but wait for the payoff at 2:03). Please tell me that Ms. Rose doesn't think "entertainment law" means "law for entertainment purposes."

It's unfortunate that, now that Chuck Rosenthal is gone, socialites in law school can't count on getting jobs at the Harris County DA's Office that would lead to jobs as real judges.

The funny part? Ms. Rose's aspirations are more realistic than probably 90% of her classmates'.
