Sorry we’ve been a bit out of touch, but we have a big excuse. Well, several. The good news is Elisa and I have been putting a new project together that we expect to tell you about very soon. The other good news is that Elisa is really in love, which is also part of the problem.
The bad news is written all over her face: we’ve also had a bit of a nightmare getting Elisa’s weight under control. Probably the joy of being in love plus the stress of developing our new show have taken their toll and, well, you can see for yourself. If you’re wondering why the second season of Girls Who Like Boys Who Like Boys moved to Nashville, frankly it’s because Sundance took one look at what has happened my poor Elisa and they decided it was easier to change cities then deal with the multitude of problems her sudden weight gain creates. Believe me, folks, I went to bat for her and stood up to the network. I showed them pretty pictures of big boned gals we adore like Ann Wilson, Linda Ronstadt and Kathy Najimy, but I found those supposedly progressive executives implacable and unsympathetic. Understandably, she is a bit self-conscious and she feels bad that she fucked up the Sundance thing, but I told her it’s not really her fault the executives at Sundance are haters.
Anyway, the really good news is that even as I type this, Elisa is at Canyon Ranch getting a handle on her issues and has already dropped two pounds! In the meanwhile, please join me in sending her your best wishes, (but please don’t send her anything edible.) If our new show doesn’t get sold, there is always The Biggest Loser! – David
