  • I agree - give Elissa her own reality show!

    It would be interesting to see how she is in real life, not just in interviews or in Cosmopolitan you know? I know she is different to the rest of Hollywood in that she doesnt date 4 guys a week and always wears her underwear, and it would be great to see how she parties without forgetting her thong and losing her mind... she is a great model to all kinds of women, those who are unsure of themselves for being curvy can learn a lot from a Brazilian girl like her - love your curves! It would be great to see something like "The Life of Elissa" as a reality show, or even a 6 or 7 episode special on TV, im sure it would attract many viewers, even those who dont know who she is, because she has all the right stuff to attract viewers.moreless
