Kids say: Not yet rated

The Drama Queen is full of reality-worthy moments of catty arguments, personal relationship problems, random conversations about sexual activity, and other expected fare. But it also offers some honest insight into what show business is like and what it takes to succeed in it. Most of this comes from Marki Costello herself, who is the granddaughter of famed comedian Lou Costello and who has an insider understanding of the business and the costs associated with being a part of it.

Marki's conversations with people seeking her representation range from being lighthearted and entertaining to uncomfortable, usually thanks to parents who appear more interested in their kids' careers than in their well-being. But her blunt and honest approach isn't cruel and is usually offered as a way of mentoring folks who don't understand how the business works or who risk falling victim to exploitation and other dangers. Ultimately, it's a voyeuristic show, but it's one with a few lessons to teach.
