Downfall Of Rebecca Eri Ray Vaughn Highlights Industry Sexism | TV News
From everywhere to nowhere, the fall from grace of TV personality Rebecca Eri Ray Vaughn has revealed the harsh truth of Japan’s treatment of its female entertainers. Until news of her alleged affair with a married man surfaced, Becky was the darling of the Japanese Television world, with regular appearances in ten commercials and half a dozen variety shows as well as a possible radio show.
All it took was one leaked text message, her employers ripped up contracts, and she disappeared from TV screens and lost commercial contracts, Sun Music claiming she was suffering from “illness and depression”.
Philip Brasor, a commentator on Japanese Media and culture says Becky is like many celebrities who populate Japanese Variety Shows: “her whole reason for being as a TV talent is her image as a cheerful, agreeable, proper young woman, and once that image is spoiled she has no value to the people who use her”.
