If ever there was anyone MADE for reality TV, it's Brenda Dickson. Why hasn't this happened?
Why no Brenda Dickson reality show?

I've watched the 'Welcome To My Home' video and all the parodies, and read about her messy divorce. She seems like a good-hearted gal, and I think she got taken advantage of. But she is incredibly self-obsessed, has zero taste, a brazen name-dropper, not very articulate, and a typically bad soap actress. The clips from The Young and Restless are as funny as the parody videos.

Brenda posted on the Awful Plastic Surgery site, in response to an award they gave her, that she has never had ANY plastic surgery, typing with a talon tight from the unintended consequences of a recent brow lift.
I typed a follow up comment (as Brenda) lamenting all the Jews in the industry, how the pansies in make-up get pissy when you bring a litre of Cutty Sark into their trailer in the morning, and how fucking Marc Cherry misconstrued that my mercantile arrangement with Arab businessmen was in lieu of being a nighttime network star.
Someone claiming to be a writer in television posted a response telling Brenda that she would never work in television again with her nasty attitude towards Jews and gays.
Within hours, the real Brenda had gone full Cheryl, demanding that the webmaster remove the entire thread, providing her address and cell phone number.

It would be tough to wrangle her in a reality format. She has no sense of humor about herself and wouldn't go for a lot of the set-ups.

She also still thinks she is a star.
When asked a year ago about appearing in a small role, instead of being grateful, she immediately made demands about craft services and requiring a "honey wagon."

She couldn't carry a show (Brenda who?) but would make an awesome supporting character.

We're almost ready for a re-launch of 'Fernwood Tonight'. It would steal the 'Twin Peaks' twisted verite vibe without needing the plot.
It would also require actors who are attractive, if you squint, who can deliver inappropriate emotion.
As far as B. Dickson, she'd be perfect, but she needs an abusive manager who believes in cattle prod therapy.

BD was quite the MILF bad in the day...now she's an irrelevancy quite honestly. The Bells might not the best people in the world but their show still goes on and Brenda is still whining about everything. BD should go into the what ever happened to Andrea Evans(Tina Lord) category? she's another one that disappeared as well from soaps save for other unimportant soap stints she did. I also have a bitchy/queeny story to tell about that one......

Brenda is a soap icon. She pretty much was responsible for Y&R's surge to #1 in the 80s. And Bill Bell rewarded her by firing her. Jess Walton is a better actress, but she lacks Brenda's charisma.

The bit about her making the show a success is a Brenda fatasy, which you have bought into.
She was fired for being an unreliable pain in the ass with a crazy attitude.

Y&R did not hit number 1 until 1988 - a year after Brenda's firing. Trust me, she was not the Susan Lucci of CBS Daytime.

I remember reading an article on Awful Plastic Surgery about her and under the comments, Brenda had posted a looooooooong post that read like the rants of a drunk.
Full of misspellings and faux-legalese, she threatened the webmaster, claiming she had NEVER had any plastic surgery and that it cost $450,000 to use ANY picture of her on the Internet.
She then posted her CELL PHONE NUMBER [!] and demanded that he call her before she had the FBI take him to jail.
She is, needless to say, not a well woman.

"The Bold & the Beautiful" should get her on as a replacement for Sally Spectra. If only she hadn't trashed Bill Bell in her book. I genuinely believe Brenda is suited to the soap medium. Whatever 'reality television' exists today is not HER reality.

I just read her book.
She is absolutely INSANE.
She talks about how the "Welcome to My Home" video made people care about fashion again, led to people caring about what is worn on the red carpet, invented shows like Fashion Police -- and created the concept of "reality TV."
She talks about how 50,000,000 fans watched her divorce on TV.
And that everyone is jealous and intimidated by "by great beauty and award-winning talent."
She has written to Google "thousands of times" to get them to stop having a picture she doesn't like pop up when people search her name.
She thinks Deven Green (whom see only refers to, repeatedly, as "a so-called comedian") has worked tirelessly to sabotage her career (at the behest of Sony, Inc.) by posting ALL the negative comments about her on the Internet!
Not a well woman.

Writing about herself in the third person:
"She created a hit, runaway internet film she wrote, produced and directed called, "Welcome to my Home" that was put on by a fan. The film quickly garnered 3 million viewers. Sony Pictures (The Bells) took it down in a false copyright claim. Dickson produced the film into a DVD. This reality film paved the way for all of the recent reality series. It was taken over by a woman who decided to lip-sync over it, in an illegal, fraudulent copyright infringement. This so-called comedian attached onto the goldmine of the film that Dickson produced. It is believed that she has been hired to do these expensive lip-syncs over Dickson's material to discredit her. The film was way ahead of its time about fashion, diet and exercise and how to apply makeup properly. Dickson brought people into her home to spend the day with her. She showed her cat and dog and did a fashion show of over the top, couture gowns from the 80s. The industry took note of this film and suddenly a reality show was born. The Kardashians brought you into their home. Other shows did the same. High fashion became a Red Carpet must, and all of the industry was changed. Blue jeans and tee shirts were suddenly replaced by top designers."

I read her book, and as much affection as I have for her, 90% of it is the ravings of a paranoid lunatic.
I feel sorry for her in many ways. I think she was likely mistreated by the courts in both her divorces, but she's just so full-on crazy, that she's not capable of putting her case together in a coherent way. I can't imagine what kind of client she was for her lawyers.

In some regards, it actually was. Brenda talked about avoiding sugar because it ages you. While Advanced Glycation End products (AGEs) are known about nowadays, there were not known in 1985, when she made the [italic] Welcome To My Home[/italic] video.
