Ex-American Idol executive producer and SYTYCD judge Nigel Lythgoe may be the next American Idol judge (is Fox really that lazy?), and TV news gets a blast from the past with Carol Burnett, Lou Ferrigno and Ryan O'Neal. Can you figure which one of these three we'd rather not see in today's news?...
NBC has revealed the fall and midseason slate of new shows that are meant to save the network, and some of them look good! But some of them... do not, we'll say. I woke up bright and early this morning to attend the red-carpet portion of the network's upfront presentation to get season finale spoilers from current NBC talent, and to ask the new stars what the hell their shows are about and, in one case, why their show is so racist. (Also, while I couldn't get an interview with Tina Fey, I did eavesdrop the hell out of all her conversations, which were all about shrimp. Just a little tidbit.) Read on for all the information I could get out of strangers in two or three questions while their publicists desperately tried to tear them away from me.
Someone named Daisy (who was described to me as "the one who looks like Janice from the Muppets" -- not helpful, Angel) recently told TMZ that she had done some dirty things with Bret Michaels, even though he has a girlfriend (someone named Ambre, which I'm told is pronounced "Amber" and not "Am-Bree" like it's spelled -- not helpful, whoever named Ambre). This has apparently become very big news because Ambre has taken to her Myspace blog to defend her man's honor. Keep in mind her man is Bret Michaels, so I don't really understand why she's bothering, but here's what she had to say:
"Daisy has no involvement with Bret and my relationship, therefore there is no validity to her statement."
So yeah, he totally nailed that Daisy person. Probably wore a red bandana when he did it, too. He's Bret Michaels. I'm Mindy Monez. I have no idea what I'm talking about.
Today we've got Bret Michaels, Grey's, Glee, Jake & Vienna, Top Model, and Lost news. Big stuff! Why are you wasting your time reading this intro paragraph?!
It's time for The Celebrity Apprentice to try and top last year's "Whore pit viper!" moment with something even more insane. And it looks like they might -- Sharon Osbourne, Bret Michaels, Rod Blagojevich and Cyndi Lauper (among others) are all going to be forced to interact with each other. Frankly, I'd be surprised if they all come out alive. So to promote Sunday night's premiere episode, The Donald and Bret Michaels got on the horn to field press calls on a massive conference call. Highlights:
Finding love in the wild world of reality TV, it is just hard to know if a girl is a skank or a ho. If she's just a famewhore who wants some media attention, or if she really truly loves you with your venereal diseases and all. That's why Bret Michaels, who thought he found love twice before, is on the hunt again with Rock of Love 3. This is the most disgustingly awesome news we've heard all day.
This is going to be a big week for TV news, what with fall lineups being announced and all. Hold on to your DVRs!
On behalf of all of us at TWoP: Happy May 4th! That's how you wish someone a happy Star Wars Day, right?
