World of Wonder’s reality dating-game show, Transamerican Love Story, airs tonight on Logo at 10PM. Edge New York has an interview with the show’s transgendered star, actress-author-activist Calpernia Addams, by Bay Windows‘ Brian Jewell. A snippet:
Q: It sounds like the show was an intense experience. Any regrets?
A: No, the show turned out really great. It kind of freed me from some of those worries. This show was fun and finally got me relaxed. And I’m proud that on this show we have silly things, but talk about deeper things like family and what it’s like to date as a trans person. There’s so much more to this show than the average dating show.
Q: Would you do a second season?
A: It was a very fun experience, but I don’t know. The hardest thing I’ve ever done on camera is sending the guys home. I hate hurting people’s feelings. I’d rather gargle broken glass and lick a lemon than say a word to hurt anyone.
