this week in Asian: they're MODELS!

Gawker got to the bottom of the HaraGossip Girl mystery — turns out they’re models. An anonymous Jezebel reader, who had (unsuccessfully) auditioned for the show had this to report:

They were actually the funniest part of the show – they had these totally bizarre three line conversations at the end of each scene. Unfortunately, for those of us who went in 19 times for every part on the show and ended up coming down to the very end for those roles, the network decided that they had to go “ethnic,” and they claimed couldn’t find any black or Asian girls who were funny, so they, at the last minute, cast models and decided to just make them sight gags. No joke.

  • Be Asian for Halloween: Dude, if only being Asian could be so easy as putting on long red nails, waving a fan through the air, and pimping myself out with all manner of “Asian accents. Oh wait, when I said “Asian”, I meant “crude racist sexist Asian stereotype”. Sorry! [Angry Asian Man]
