I know Howard Davine. I worked at ABC with Howard Davine. Howard Davine was a friend of mine. Let me tell you, you're no Howard Davine.

Hollywood was recently all abuzz when an internal ABC memo leaked that essentially said, "Steal show ideas from other countries and don't pay them for it. It's easier than doing our own work and they certainly won't sue us. We're ABC."

Well some people think this attitude is pervasive in Hollywood. In fact, some have even come to a a false conclusion that The Hollywood Temp Diaries is stolen from a site started by an Ecuadorian temp named el Equis. Let me say this once and for all -- it's a coincidence -- like Mark Wahlberg and the other Mark Wahlberg. These things happen all the time. You can't really believe that Fox would rip off Super Nanny (ABC) with Nanny 911. If so, how do you explain TLC's Take Home Nanny? If you believe that, then you have to believe Wife Swap (ABC) is stolen from Trading Spouses (FOX). What about Flip That House (Discovery Home) vs. Flip This House (A&E). How naive can you be? It's all a coincidence. No one copies ideas in Hollywood.

Don't believe me? Then judge the "Los Diarios del Temp de Hollywood" for yourself. Click here. If anything el Equis copied me!

You mean you're bilingual and you still can't get a full time gig?


Oh, and this title looks familiar from an earlier comment of mine. Steal from the best!
