I want to see what the original "swans" look like now.
[quote]Casting is currently underway through The Conlin Co. and no celebrities have been set, though I’ve heard the names of former White House intern Monica Lewinsky and Happy Days alumna Erin Moran as possibilities.
DL Favorite Erin Moran on THE SWAN?!?!?!
I'd travel and co-host a Datalounge watch party for that.
R2, NO SHIT! I've tried to start countless threads on this show and no takers. Even when the show was on I think there were only 3 of us who were interested. I would imagine the gals looked like plastic surgery victims without the wiglets and weaves.
I haven't had any new surgery in at least a week, so I'm overdue!
Oh Lawd, the original show was deliciously awful. My sister and I still laugh at the reaction of one contestant during her reveal when she sobbed in front of the mirror, "I'm so beautiful!" The entire production was Shatneresque.
R4 they gave all of them the exact same procedures, therapy and physical workouts.
Totally, R6! That woman was unhinged. "I'm so beautiful-hul-hul-hul!" The cosmetic dentistry was so awful. They all ended up with Chiclet veneers.
I will watch the shit out of Celebrity Swan. Can't wait.
R1 There's only so much surgery can do. At least until we have the technology demonstrated in this ep of "The Twilight Zone."
What about the contestant who was booted because she dared to look at herself in a mirror before her reveal? The straight-faced censure she got from TPTB was HILARIOUS! I can't believe I didn't damage internal organs from laughter during the finale. Will be watching the redux with a martini and a tank of O2.
Too bad they don't have enough "celebrities" for a series.
This is fantastic news for my dear friend Glenn!
Oh man, that is one of my all-time favorite shows. It made the mommies nervous though, so it was cancelled. Maybe they realized they were just a few porcelain veneers away from dumping their loutish hubbies, and the pain was too great.
Thanks for the link r12. I was just going to come one here to say that I remember one of the swans (not Arrias) saying that she kind of flipped out afterwards because she wan't used to being so pretty. Her and her husband broke up. This chick at your link is kind of a whiner. Clearly these people were damaged to begin with so you can't blame the show, honey. It's like that fatty that is pissed at Biggest Loser because they didn't fucking hold his hand and come live with him and make him eat salads everyday and now he is huge again.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
