Megan Wettach featured on MTV's 'True Life'
Megan Wettach, owner of Premier Prom & Bridal Boutique and the poster girl for homegrown Iowa entrepreneurship, is getting her own episode on reality television.
Mount Pleasant, say hello to MTV.
Wettach, 22, will be featured on "True Life," a seven-year constant in the line-up for the hip-hop heavy music network.
An MTV crew will be here in early February to film the former Miss Teen Iowa, who also owns The Megan Amanda Collection, a line of interview suits for pageant participants carried by Nordstrom and Von Maur.
A junior at the University of Iowa, Wettach was mentioned as a young entrepreneur by Gov. Tom Vilsack in his 2002 State of the State Address and two years ago was awarded $5,000 for developing one of the best new venture business plans in Iowa for the Megan Amanda Collection.
According to the MTV Web site, "the 'True Life' series tells its stories solely from the varied voices and points-of-view of its characters — putting the series in the unique position of reflecting the state of youth culture at any given moment."
Wettach agreed to do the show last week after being selected from about 2,000 young people nationwide. The episode will air in June.
While most of the details must be kept secret, Wettach said "True Life" focus will focus on her attempts to juggle two businesses with school and pageants.
Is she nervous? Yeah, a little bit.
"They'll be filming me 24 hours a day."
