Emma Stone Was Once a Teen Reality TV Contestant
Chances are you didnâ€™t know who tf Emma Stone was until you watched her pine after a bottle of gold flake-infused vodka in Superbad,Â but did you knowÂ once upon a time she was a teen reality TV contestant?
Back in 2004, when sweet 16-year-old Emma Stone still called herself Emily Stone, she ended up auditioning for a reality TV singing competition on VH1 called â€œIn Search of the Partridge Familyâ€ to cast a made for TV called â€œThe New Partridge Family.â€
Just in case you didnâ€™t grow up with parents who were born in the 1950s and forced you to grow up watching Nick at Nite, â€œThe Partridge Familyâ€ was basically like â€œThe Brady Bunchâ€ but with a lot more singing.
As Emma explained to Newsweek:
â€œMy mom had never pushed me to audition for anything, but she saw a commercial on TV for it and said, â€˜You look like Susan Dey [the woman who originally played the part Emma was auditioning for] a little, and just dyed your hair brown.â€
With all due respect to Mrs. Stone, Iâ€™ll have to disagree with her on that point because this is what Susan Dey looked like when she was on “The Partridge Family.”
ANYWAY, long story short Emma, I mean Emily, ended up winning the show and staring in the made-for-TV movie, partly because of her impassioned, sultry rendition of everybody’s favorite song about being a bitch, lover, child and mother.
