To say that all reality TV stars are bad people would be an overgeneralization. The media can paint a poor picture of reality stars, but all too many still have their humanity. That said, most people probably don’t aspire to be like reality stars, even their favorites.
The persona that someone like Meredith Marks gives off on Real Housewives of Salt Lake City is too abrasive for anyone to want to be that way all the time. Unless, of course, you’re an actress, like Sarah Paulson.
After 13 years, Sarah is making a return to Broadway. She’ll be starring in a family drama titled Appropriate from Branden Jacobs-Jenkins. To prepare for her role, Sarah discussed that she’d be taking inspiration from an unlikely source.
Sarah wants Meredith’s “intensity” and “energy”
Recently, Paulson went on the view to discuss her upcoming role. “I work with a woman named Julia Crockett who helps me physically transform into some people,” she told the hosts. “I’ve played a lot of real people and I need to approximate some physical communication to an audience – a visual image that reminds them of the person.”
She further explained, “So, I’ve been watching … The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City. There’s one character named – she’s not an actress, she’s a character on this show, she’s a person, I guess – Meredith Marks and she has a particular intensity that I have decided to abscond with and tried to turn some of that energy into this person I’m playing.”
When Meredith caught wind of what Sarah had said, she tweeted, “I adore [Sarah Paulson] ?? What an honor!” Fans on Twitter also voiced their support of Meredith and Sarah, with replies along the lines of “Two mothers mothering.” If Meredith’s behavior in RHOSLC Season 4 is anything to go off of, Sarah will deliver a showstopping performance.
Real Housewives of Salt Lake City continues Tuesdays at 8/7c on Bravo.
