Because we need a celebrity version of everything, ABC has ordered Celebrity Wife Swap, wherein celebrities from opposing walks of life will switch spouses for a week in the same chaste extended key party format as the regular people edition -- but better! Rumor has it the show is gunning for SNL alum and noted homophobe Victoria Jackson for an episode, so I think it's safe to say they're really reaching for the crazy stars here. And since I live to help the networks with these kinds of things, here are some fun swap ideas I know I for one would watch the hell out of.
VH1 has announced plans for a reality show called Scream Queens, in which the network will put a group of 10 unknown actresses through a series of challenges in hopes of finding the next great horror actress. It's a search for a less '70s-y Jamie Lee Curtis, if you will. The winner will get a "major" role in a Lionsgate horror film, "major" most likely meaning hot girl who gets to die last because she's dumb but still hot.
Happy Monday, all! We're currently snowed in here at TWoP's Manhattan headquarters, even though it's March. LOL, end of the world, I guess! Anyway, if you're trying to forget about the impending apocalypse, read on for a nudie mature TV star, Shannen Doherty's ridiculous new gig, Alexis Bledel's sad new gig, and yes, even more Melissa George hatred. As Diddy used to say, "I thought I told you that we won't stop!"
If Denise Richards fabricating a story about how her assy reality show It's Complicated is getting picked up for another season has taught me one thing, it's to not trust what dumdum plastic surgery victims/"actresses" say about goings-on in the TV industry. Chances are, they're hoping people will accuse them of merely being confused rather than outright lying, and then realize, hey! That's not such a bad idea, what she said! Maybe we should renew that crappy show no one watched! With that said, I'm taking what Lisa Rinna has said about rumblings of a Melrose Place remake with a grain of Restalyne. I know she's hard up for work now that she's exhausted her second fifteen minutes as the token cougar on Dancing With the Stars, but let's not even put a bug in the CW's ear, OK? It's not fair to anyone.
Personally, I like it -- a lot! I know a lot of people think Lisa's annoying and are freaked out by her lips (she's aware of this now, and is currently working on the lip situation, according to last week's The Soup), but Lisa Rinna and Harry Hamlin are my favorite celebrity couple of all time. And yes, I do keep a favorite celebrity couples list. What? Like you don't?
