O.M.G. Exclamation Point

My head is spinning, my mind utterly warped. Katie is the newest 'talent' being managed by Eileen Koch. We dined at La Scala in Beverly Hills, a restaurant known as a hot spot for celebrities and the movers-and-shakers in the biz. We talked for 2 hours, and at the end she offered Katie a contract, began making plans to get her both a modeling agent and theatrical agent, made plans for head shots and appts with photographers for test shots, and began to design her PR campaign. It was totally surreal. In fact, I went to bed and fell deeply asleep with no problems, only to wake up at 3 am in a full panic.

I will post more and pictures as soon as I can. O.M.G.!!!!!

Please be careful. My children have been in the business for years...auditioning for Commercials and going on go-sees for modeling. I have never heard of this route when getting into the business. If any expenses are paid by you, that is a red flag. If any photos are paid for by you, another red flag. If classes or "agents" are paid for by you (even a penny), this would not be the way to go. If they have foot- the-bill for the trip and any and all expenses, than you have nothing to lose, but please be careful. The business truly is one that requires a lot of time, talent, and hard work. I wish you the best, but please be careful =)
