okay, so even though nick lachey is all ‘gone hollywood’ on our cincinnati asses, he’s still got a bit of hometown pride. he’s putting up some time and money to put together “taking the stage,” a new reality show on MTV about SCPA (school for creative and performing arts) in downtown cincinnati. of course, nick is an SCPA grad himself, but still.
the coolest thing though? mia carruthers, the singer-songwriter in this trailer, is/was one of my friend’s music students (of course, not so much anymore now that mtv took over her life), and she played at awakenings when i worked there; she’s incredibly talented, friendly, and pretty mature for a high schooler, all told. and obviously, she’s adorable. this may be the only reality tv show that i end up watching throughout the season. go cincinnati! woo!
