I don’t normally pay attention to reality television (unless someone is making a wedding gown out of vending machine snack wrappers, or an amuse-bouche out of monkey tongue, maybe), but something caught my eye today, and I just haven’t been able to shake it. So, naturally, I thought I’d share it with you all, so I don’t have to suffer alone. Thanks for sharing the burden, friends!
Warner Horizon Television is shopping a new show titled I Slept With a Celebrity. Wanna take a guess as to what this show is about? I’ll give you a hint: if you’re expecting any surprises or subtlety, you’re going to be majorly disappointed. Oh, who are we kidding? Everyone involved is going to be majorly disappointed no matter what the hell happens. The premise is exactly what the title says, nothing more and, well, I would say nothing less, but how the crap could it be anything less than that?
In each episode, two guests will dish about how they hooked up with a famous person for what often ended up being a one-night stand.This show comes from Andy Cohen, whose other realibominations include When Animals Attack! and a show I’d never heard of from 2005 called Who’s Your Daddy? If you’ve also never heard of that show, take a moment to think about what that title might imply. What might that show be about? … Got an idea? Okay, yeah, it’s worse than that. According to Wikipedia,
For the show’s premise, an adult who had been put up for adoption as an infant was placed in a room with 25 men, one of whom was their biological father. If the contestant could correctly pick out who was their father, the contestant would win $100,000. If they chose incorrectly, the person that they incorrectly selected would get the $100,000, although the contestant would still be reunited with his or her father.Surprise— it… was not popular. I’d like to suggest that the title of I Slept With a Celebrity be changed to The Drunkest Person in Any Bar in L.A.
