About Phractured Phairytales
The powers that be over at MTV had a "great" idea for a TV show--following an aging yet photogenic rock band trying to make it in the music biz. Nikki Foust was all for it, though KrYpTiC k and Elizabeeth were concerned that it would be like 'selling one's soul to the devil.
The producers assured them otherwise, so they agreed.
The show "Phractured Phairytales Rock (in) da House" was conceptualized as a reality sitcom a la "The Osbournes," hoping that comedy would ensue. Niki Foust, a closeted (or not so closeted?) exhibitionist started walking around nude and acting like a b*tch to get a rise out of her "co-stars.
KrYpTiC k and Elizabeeth would not play along and the show ended up being more boring than "Big Brother 3" and was cancelled after the first season.
The show's theme song, "Upstairs Jan," which was originally a meditation on alienation and social cruelty, did end up hitting MTV's top spot for a few weeks, but eventually Phractured Phairytails went the way of Eden's Crush...
