Prank at high school reunion leaves some former classmates displeased

Ktla_newsHere are some of the stories that KTLA News is working on this evening:

STRIPPER STAND-IN: Instead of attending her 10-year high school reunion in Palos Verdes, Andrea Wachner, sent a stripper and filmed the whole thing. The exotic dancer, who posed as Wachner, wore fishnet stockings, a tight black dress and spike-heeled boots. She also told classmates she had undergone reconstructive surgery and suffered from amnesia. Doubters were put at ease as Wachner -- stationed in a nearby hotel room -- fed her stand-in information through an earpiece. Wachner, 31, also filmed the spectacle thing for her documentary "I Remember Andrea." After Wachner posted snippets on YouTube, a few of her former classmates were displeased.

TRUANCY SWEEP: A 'truancy' sweep that critics say was more of a 'tardy' sweep has generated controversy at Bell High School.  Truancy officers were reportedly posted on the school's front steps at the start of school this morning.  Students who were even a minute late were handcuffed and transported to a local park where their parents were called to pick them up.  Some parents complained that the operation was an over-reaction and should have targeted chronic truants instead of students only slightly late to school.

The high school reunion was in 2007. It was posted on youtube in 2007. How is this news?

I've seen the Stripper Stand-In video hours ago. Well, it was funny and entertaining. For those who were displeased by what Andrea has done to their reunion, you can't blame the woman if she really hated high school and her classmates. I think that was a good idea, and they went mad because they were fooled... almost. That was awesome performance. Like the Charlie's Angels stuff!
