We intended this blog as a parody of modeling, as seen through the eyes of a young woman caught up in it. We failed both as a parody and as a piece of clever writing.
More importantly, we may have hurt a very nice young woman and her good mum. We have come to know that Maddison is a great girl, and that her mum, Michelle, is a wonderful woman who does for her daughter what every mum wants to do--give her opportunities to build and showcase her talents, whether through sports, the arts or any other endeavor.
Most of our readers understood this was a parody, but some did not, and we apologize to them.
