Sarah Lake on 20/20 — Still Won’t Keep Quiet About Black Swan

Oh Sarah Lake . . . you still don’t get it. I’ll explain it to you again so that you understand why your behavior is inappropriate. It’s absolutely none of your business if the movie studio wants to portray Natalie Portman as a ballerina. You were hired to be her dance-double, and you did your job. Now be done with it. To go on national television and expose who really did all the dancing is ridiculous and unprofessional. In the interview below, Lake explains that she’s discussing the issue because she wants to “stand up for the art form,” so people don’t think they can become a professional ballet dancer in a year and a half. Here’s the problem — no one thinks that. And what if they do think that? What’s the harm? If I think I can become a professional ballet dancer in a year, then maybe I’ll take up the sport and get in shape while trying. Maybe more people will become interested in ballet, which only helps the art form. But if I’m convinced that it takes me 20 years, then why bother? Get my point Ms. Lake? Learn the business of Hollywood before you run your mouth.

Tune In For Chris Cuomo’s 20/20 Special on Troubled Youths

Chris Cuomo appeared on The View today to promote his 20/20 special, and he was beyond impressive. He’s officially the only man that can sit on the panel without interruption for five minutes straight.  If you’re a fan of The View, you’d also be in awe of this skill, considering those five yentas can’t go one minute without getting a word in.  I decided to tweet him my praise today, and he tweeted back a very kind thank you.  My loyal Dishmaster readers know that I like to play favorites, and Chris Cuomo is now on my favorite person list.  Having said that, I’d like to encourage all of my readers to watch his special this Friday at 10 p.m. I’ve attached a clip of him discussing the special, and it looks great. I’ve also attached a clip of his appearance on The View, so you can see for yourself what a word-ninja looks like in action.
