It’s a happy 27th-ish birthday to Megan Hauserman, whose best assets are displayed below. Actually, that may not be completely true.
Hauserman, you see, parlayed an accounting degree from the University of Illinois at Chicago into an appearance on Ashton Kutcher’s Beauty and the Geek, which she then parlayed into a stint on the second season of Rock of Love, where she competed for the heart of ex-Poison rocker Bret Michaels, along with a future STD-positive test.
She lost (and therefore won?), moving on to the debut of I Love Money, a challenge-based reality competition show composed of
wash-outs former contestants from other VH-1 series like I Love New York, Flavor of Love and the aforementioned Michaels-centric show. There Hauserman hung around until the final three by mind-fucking her frequently saused fellow competitors in Machiavellian fashion. Now she’s apparently on yet another VH-1 show, Rock of Love: Charm School, which exhibits an uncanny skill at occupational avoidance/vine-swinging that most single college grads can only pull off for 12-18 months. I’m betting that Hauserman hasn’t bought a drink for herself in a long, long time. Yes, she’s crafty, in the style that the Beastie Boys once rapped about.
More broadly speaking (pun?), I’m fascinated by this new breed of demi-celebrity — MTV Real World alums and on-the-grift actresses who aren’t really actresses, at least in any traditional sense — and what it says about the changing nature of entertainment in America.
Oh, and also (and probably chiefly): boobs.
