Interview with Samantha Fox

SideReel had a chance to interview this week's America's Prom Queen castoff and here's what we learned: Samantha Fox claims she knew what she was getting herself into when she signed on to participate in ABC Family's reality program, America's Prom Queen, which she learned of randomly while surfing Craigslist. Fox was the latest girl booted off of the program this past Monday when the judges accused her of "selling out" her teammate, Macy. If you haven't been watching America’s Prom Queen, Macy "Miss Tennessee Teen USA" seems to be the escape artist of the bunch; she lands in the bottom group every episode, but always manages to squeeze by. During this week's episode, Macy opted to take a nap and spend lengthy amounts of time applying her makeup as opposed to spending time preparing with her team for the competition at hand. Samantha revealed this information to the judges and consequently was accused of "throwing Macy under the bus". However, Samantha revealed to us in our interview that the show had in fact asked her to identify the team's weakest player, and it was only at this point that she provided Macy's name (who in all honesty, was the team's weakest player). When asked what she learned from the whole ordeal, Fox says that perhaps being honest doesn't always work in situations such as these. When asked whether the show had portrayed her accurately, Fox replied that she wishes the show had shown more footage of her attempting to work as a team with Macy, the end result of which was always Macy being difficult (and for the record, Fox says she wouldn't change the way she acted at all and still believes Macy to be a "horrible human"). Samantha already knows who will be in the final 3, though she can't tell us. She's pulling for LaShell or Carmen to win, whom she believes to be the most honest and genuine girls in the house. Overall, Fox has no regrets about being on the show, saying that she "would do it again" and in fact would love to have her own reality show with LaShell, who was one of the girls in the house that she clicked the most with (and swears is not the "bully" that the show claims). She says that she was just there to have fun - which she did - and recognized the whole thing as a great experience that not everyone has the opportunity to do.

Q&A With Niah Chapman of America's Prom Queen

This week marked the second week of ABC Family's new reality competition, America's Prom Queen, where high-school girls from around the country compete against one another to be crowned America's Prom Queen. The second girl to go home was Niah Chapman, from Boston, and Get Reel had the opportunity to participate in a Q&A with her this past Tuesday. Niah was sweet and well spoken, and dished about being on the show, her life at home, her plans for the future and who she wants to see take home the prize.

Q&A With Torree Whitney

This past Monday marked the premiere of a new reality program on ABC Family, America's Prom Queen. The show pits 10 girls from across the nation against each other in a competition to be guessed it...America's Prom Queen. The first girl to be eliminated was Torree Whitney, hailing from Anaheim, California. Torree had been nominated twice to become the prom queen at her own high school, but had never managed to grab the crown. The show painted her as being just a wee bit obsessed with taking home the crown and not necessarily as one of the nicest girls in the house... Get Reel had an opportunity to participate in a Q&A session with Torree this past Tuesday, and we are happy to report that Torree seemed like a completely sweet and well-adjusted girl - not at all as the show portrayed her. Dangers of reality show editing, I guess. Check out the interview transcript to learn a little bit more about the real Torree Whitney: Q&A With Torree Whitney
