I’m sad to say that Susan’s photos did not appear on Between The Sheets’ episode on All on the Line last night. At least that I saw. Correct me if I’m wrong. Still, exposure for BTS can only lead to increased exposure for Susan.
As far as the episode goes, it really did nothing to improve my view of reality TV. I suppose Joe Zee had a valid perspective on suggesting an outerwear line. But why was it his ONLY suggestion? Basically he decided that he either was unwilling or unable to help Layla with her lingerie and dug his toes in on the only thing he apparently could think of. And to Layla, that was basically, “OK, nobody in the entire world is capable of making money selling only lingerie, so why don’t you scrap all your education and experience and start designing outerwear! Because that’s my only idea! Aren’t I awesome? Aren’t you like, soooo privileged that I’m shelling this single-mindedness your way? BOOM shaka laka! Take it or leave it and if you leave it you’re a loser and you’ve ruined my reputation forever with Neiman Marcus.”
So whatever. It’s really not about helping out designers. It’s about squeezing as much drama drama drama as possible into 45 minutes. It was pretty ballsy of Layla to stick to her guns and I admire her for it. I’d totally have sold out, but I’m kind of financially insecure that way.
There are several more really beautiful photos of Susan at Layla’s website. Click the link.

I’ll eventually put them in our galleries, but for now, drive your browser-car to her website.

The title of this post is kinda a little optimistic. You see, there’s no guarantee Susan will be on this show. If she is, it will only be photos of her. But there are a few reasons why this is still awesome…
- TV is big exposure. Potentially more than the Internet, if you can believe it. At least in a single point and time. And if viewers have the same reaction most of us did when we first saw Susan, they’ll be like, “Holy Stimulation, Batman! Who’s that girl?” Then they’ll turn to the Internet, because where else will they turn? Here’s to hoping that their Internet-turning directs them to Susan.
- More exposure means new opportunities and while Susan’s been pretty successful thus far, all she needs is that one break that will plaster her on a Vic. Secret poster like the ones she was admiring when she worked there.
- Layla L’obatti and Between the Sheets Lingerie will potentially get a huge boost to their business from this. This is awesome because Layla is awesome, her designs are awesome, and their photographic work with Susan is awesome. Awesomeness! Layla deserves success herself, but as a bonus, her success has the potential to bring further exposure to Susan.
So tune in, if you can. I realize that over 50% of you are not in the U.S. No idea about Sundance programming abroad. But that’s why the iTunes option is, like so many other things I’ve described in this post, awesome. Tell your friends. Tell your family. That is unless you’re a closet Susan fan. But even if you’re a scary predator, go ahead and spread the word.
No photo today, because this little game will have you exploring the entire gallery…
The very first time Susan visited SusanCoffey.net, she left a comment on one of her photos. See if you can find it. No tricks, she signed it “Susan”.
Have a lovely Friday.
PS. Susan’s also located somewhere in the picture above. See if you can find her. Click on it to make it grow.
