So, the Battle of the Dualing Swan Queens continues. But this time it’s not just about ‘Odette’, the innocent White Swan, and her evil nemesis ‘Odile’, the Black Swan temptress. This time the dualing Swans are Natalie Portman of ‘The Black Swan’ movie and her Ballerina Body Double, real life American Ballet Theatre Ballerina, Sarah Lane. Of course the virtuous Odette is Sarah. But I do not believe that Natalie Portman is the evil ‘Odile’.

You see, there are other ‘Players’. There’s a movie studio. And digital ‘face-replacement’ that was quickly covered up.

Tune in tonight to hear Dance Magazine Editor Wendy Perron and Sarah Lane discuss Sarah’s story on ABC’s 20/20 at 10pm Pacific Time.

(Yes, this topic/debate has been ‘hot’ all over the net. Odette of Odette’s Ordeal has only commented in one forum. And she’s not commenting now. She prefers you tune in and see for yourself.)

If Sarah is our White Swan, who didn’t get credited for her dancing  in the film, I do believe her story qualifies as 

‘Odette’s Ordeal-the Reality Show’:
