    • Lisa Edelstein: I was one of those people who was literally famous for doing nothing...I was always a part of the club scene in New York and eventually was able to produce my own musical about AIDS (Positive Me) because of the audience and press I received as a club kid. Eventually I was called in to screen test for this MTV show because word was out I was this neat club kid turned playwright. I got the job and basically was humiliated on the air everyday. I'm an actor, not a hostess. It was horrifying. I had all this baby fat, so I was just huge on camera... I still can't watch one frame of the show. Then I got all this hate mail because I couldn't play the part right... Luckily the show got canceled after seven months. I was so relieved.
