Lots of money is being thrown around, a new religion drama series is in the works and a former McDonalds "fan" is directing a Simpsons tribute. It can't get anymore random than that. Anyway, meet the "45-Million-Dollar Man" and read about the possibility of a Jackson family reality show.
The sweet scent of ambition is in the air today, as David Arquette plans to not starve himself for charity, Heidi Pratt finds a new way to let everyone know how hot she is, and Barbara Walters is celebrated for all the people she's made cry. Some amusing castings have been confirmed, too. Read on, friends!
Big Brother started last night, and while we're more than a little bit excited about it, we're slightly skeptical about what twists might lie ahead for us. Big Brother has done us wrong many a time before, so we're worried that this "clique" theme might be a dud. The contestants were selected because they were either popular kids, brainiacs or outcasts or jocks and they'll have to play in their respective teams. Great, it's just like high school all over again. Plus, bringing back a former contestant as the 13th contestant? And that person is Jessie? We're consoling ourselves with the fact that he'll probably be out of the mix in a heartbeat because who'd be silly enough to keep a known quantity around? Anyway, it got us thinking about some other twists on reality shows that turned out to be big old duds.
A movie star jumps to TV, a TV star jumps to a different show, a former child star jumps ship and ski jumps get their own network. It's today's TWoP news! ...After the jump, of course.
In a recent Playboy interview, Alec Baldwin dropped some juicy tidbits. A.) He hates lawyers, which we get. B.) He almost killed himself after the whole voicemail debacle, which we are very glad he did not. C.) He is thinking about running for public office, which would be frickin' awesome. Whether it's for Governor of New York or Senator from Connecticut, we would totally vote for him, regardless of where we actually live. And if he's not on the ballot, we would write him in. In fact, we've already dug up some of his campaign promises, and they all sound pretty good to us.
If you love The Real Housewives, SNL and football (not necessarily altogether or in that order), then you came to the right place because it's all right here.
Honestly, I didn't think it could (or should) be done, but someone finally found a way to make the most appalling season of The Amazing Race look halfway decent. So thank you, Great American Road Trip, you've fallen well below the very, very low bar I had set for competitive reality programming. Seriously, I watched Superstars AND America's Got Talent last night and this show was worse than both of them combined, and I pretty much hate both of those shows.
