Even from the early preteen days, Meg was constantly bashed more than any other Griffin family member. One such early example was when Meg got her family onto a reality show. "It was really disappointing," she admits, "how things ended up. Here I was, sending my completely screwed up family to this daytime psychiatry show and there they make such asses of themselves that they got a show. Now I know who Jersey Shore got its start." "We felt like the Osbournes," says mother Lois in an interview, "I admit, it was pretty creepy having cameras everywhere, but it was so exhilarating at the same time." We tried to ask Meg's brother, Chris, what he thought of the experience, but he only gave our reporters this statement, "I like kitties!"
Throughout the only one season it was on, "The Real Life Griffins" was a big hit. "People couldn't get enough of us," father Peter explained, "it was pretty awesome being stars. I felt like Ben Affleck, only with actual talent." But with the praise, comes sadness. Throughout the first few episodes, Meg's character was not as popular as the other members, so show producers took drastic measures. "I got a message that I was booted off the show and I was pretty bummed out, but when I saw my replacement, I flipped out. I mean, kicking me off the show and replacing me with some slut?! What the hell?!" While she made the Griffins' 'fifteen minutes of shame' a little better, the family eventually missed Meg. The show was cancelled before another season could shoot, and the Griffins went back to their regular life.
Another moment of significant importance to Meg's life took place just a few weeks later. "I remember that day. Um, it was the day after a bit drug fad called 'Toad' was sweeping my school. Of course, I didn't take any of the drugs but it was a pretty hot thing back then." It was such a hot, and dangerous thing that Meg's father, Peter, went undercover, a la 21 Jump Street, to remove the Toad drug, using the alias 'Lando Griffin.' "It was a pretty sweet deal. After a little musical number explaining to the kids that drugs were bad, I was top dog of the school. I even asked Connie D'Amico out to the dance, which was awesome." Though he originally was going to ask out his daughter Meg, she backstabbed her and asked out popular girl Connie D'Amico. She refused to comment about this incident for this biography. "I was so frustrated with that bastard," a teary-eyed Meg shouts at a rare never-before-seen interview, "he was going to ask me out and maybe I could finally be popular. But he asks that bitch Connie instead. I felt like such a tool." At the dance, "Lando" and Connie were named homecoming King and Queen, but he resigned his role and stated that Meg should've been his date instead, a move that caused Meg to be popular
for at least a little while. "It was amazing being popular for a few days, anyways. Man, do I want that again." Peter himself had one final word on the matter, "I was really, really, REALLY high went that happened." Sure you were, Peter. Sure you were.
