“I grew up babysitting and watching TRL after school. But the fact that I’m part of the whole new scripted development program that they’re trying to launch is really awesome.”
“I don’t actually know where Tamara gets her love for band geeks. I think maybe it’s because she’s no super popular, so out of the unpopular kids, she’s the biggest one. She can get all the band geeks. But I wasn’t really into band geeks in high school. I will say that I do gravitate more towards quirkier guys. I always date guys who wear glasses.”
“I’ve had a lot of people who’ve said they can relate to the show and it’s helped them through a lot of difficult times, especially the kids in high school now. Everyone kind of feels like an outcast in high school. Even if you’re super popular, you still have issues.”
