It turns out that LonelyGirl15 was not simply an self-vlogger, but rather the brainchild of a couple of guys in L.A. who were trying to jumpstart a career in full length film by scripting every video she made.
A couple of observations from her "My First Kiss" video this week. First, it's the second most-viewed video of the week, with over 600,000 views. Evidently the scandal worked in her favor.
Second, it seems a little odd, knowing that it's scripted, to hear Bree - whose MySpace account is currently the most-visited account this week and this month - to be so coy about telling us about her first kiss, leading up to it with phrases like:
"I really don't want to tell you, but..."
If you don't want to tell us, and you're recording yourself, you probably don't really want us to go away.
Someone's trying a little too hard to sound authentic.
