Modeling Spoof From the Show "Everybody Loves Raymond"

Sometimes in modeling we take things too seriously. Being the huge goober I am, I'm always down for any spoofs that put a humorous take on what we as models do. The show "Everybody Loves Raymond" is one of my all-time favorites and this particular episode, titled "The Model," just goes to show why.

For those of you that haven't seen this episode before, Ray's brother, Robert, gets scammed by a fake modeling agency. He ends up paying over $2,000 for a professional photoshoot but when he shows up to the agency's office to get the pictures, he discovers that they've left town along with his money. Afraid to tell the rest of the family that he was conned (he's a police officer, hence the embarrassment he's feeling on top of being duped), he and Ray decide to do a "professional" photoshoot in the basement.

Ladies and gentlemen, while the show is fiction, what happened to Robert is very real and occurs all the time. However, they put a funny spin on it that I can truly appreciate and the following segment from the episode had me in tears because I was laughing so hard. I especially love how they incorporate the music, fan and the idea of "getting into character"...all topics I've discussed at length on this blog, yet they so easily turned it into something completely ridiculous LOL.

So watch and enjoy!!!

Dear Dania, ( i hope i spelled it right)
You inspired me to dream big. I never thought that i could be ALL the things i loved. I love playing the instruments, art ( i take lessons in both) designing, singing dancing and writing. But i never thought abut modeling. I thought i had to be perfect. I am tall but i think my stomach pushes out to much. My mom says i am a stick and is beautiful but dont think im skinny. Can i have some advice on modeling?
