I used to be on the tee-vee. This was an email I got from my boss around the time I started.
"I was talking with Jeff and we'd like to get you in the studio to take some photos for the website to accompany your bio, but first we need you to go to John Six salon and Merle Norman. Just seeing if you've made arrangements to do so yet because we really can't photograph you until you do that."
Merle Norman was the make up studio where we on-air folk were given free consultations and face paint.
The email was sent as my non-confrontational boss sat directly across from me.
