Audition Note: No auditions casting straight from casting networks... (Best idea ever.)

Role: submit HOT GIRL CUSTOMER / No Union Affiliation / Guest-Star / Female / Asian, Caucasian, Hispanic / 18-35
Wardrobe: BIKINI
Rate: some pay (God, I hope so. This sounds awful.)
Nudity Situations: OWNER ASKS WOMAN TO SHOW HER BREASTS DURING THE JOB INTERVIEW. (I'd think this would be illegal. Like asking a candidate's age or marital status. So to document this harassment on-camera seems... like a poor choice. But I guess this whole thing is just one bad idea after another....)

I would think that a lady who took the time to get licensed as a stylist probably thought she wouldn't have to get half-naked/on the pole... no?

Well, let's see... what other jobs can women do naked/half-naked? We already have
chefs in bikinis, carwash workers in bikinis, comedians in bikinis, and completely naked travel correspondents and TV news hosts. There's a lesson to be learned here, and that is: for some disturbing reason, if you put a professional woman on camera, she damn well better be mostly naked, because that's where her value lies.

Gabby cranky... Gabby very, very cranky... but begrudgingly welcomes the new hall of shame category: "Bikinis are the New Black." So sad.

(Side note: EW, on the history of the barber's pole. Guess back in the day they did a heck of a lot more than a shampoo & a blowout.)
