I didn't know "D-girl" had become a derogatory term. It used to refer to the person who read the script first and decided whether or not to pass it on up the chain. Seems like a considerable amount of power to have, even for a low-level employee, I think.
Dez, it's an insult if you refer to someone much higher up the food chain as one. Like when Christopher Moltisanti called Alicia Witt a D-Girl in that episode of Sopranos.
Gotcha! And her use of it was quite funny. I'm looking forward to reports from the NBC day!
(scratching head) On these press tour executive sessions, do the always spend most of their time taking cheap shots at the opposition? It seems rather immature. Oh! Right! I forgot! Television executives.
Funny!Thanks for sharing this, Alan.
There was stuff in the panel other than Nina mocking NBC, but nothing especially newsworthy (again, one of the downsides of being a stable network is that your press conferences can be boring). If you care, Larry Fishburne's getting a new wardrobe on CSI.
Like when Christopher Moltisanti called Alicia Witt a D-Girl in that episode of Sopranos.Bah, I came here to make this very reference. Of COURSE you beat me to it. Good form, Alan, good form.
I had always thought D-girl was a derogatory term. I, too, remember the Sopranos ep. where Chris calls Alicia Witt that name. I don't blame Nina, frankly. It was a lousy thing to say about her.
