You may want to put your TiVo in overdrive, because it's all about the 10:00 hour tonight!
Discovery makes a big score with Land Of the Lost star, Will Ferrell, who pushes the publicity for his movie to new limits by appearing on a special episode of Man vs. Wild. It will be a survival show like you've never seen as the host teaches Ferrell how to rappel down a cliff, eat a reindeer, and live for 48 hours in the frigid far north of Sweden! Are you kidding me?! Saturday Night Live couldn't have written something better!
Sex with married men! Stripping! Hanging out with drug cartels! The rumors fly and the tempers begin to boil on Real Housewives of New Jersey as Danielle gets put in the hot seat! Now from the start, Danielle has admitted to having a "past", but when the other housewives discover an-out-of-print book called Cop Without a Badge they give gossiping a whole new meaning! In the book there are apparently many stories about a Beverly Merrill the woman who is supposedly Danielle. Beverly/Danielle, according to the author Kevin Maher, was a stripper who partied with a drug dealer who kidnapped a rich kid. The book, which is also said to have Danielle's police mug shot, claims Beverly/Danielle was charged with extortion, kidnapping, and possession, but was granted only five years probation after pleading guilty to extortion! Holy drama, Batman! And, as always, poor Jacqueline gets stuck in the middle again!
And Paris Hilton's My New B.F.F. premieres tonight on MTV. This season B.F.F. hopefuls include a young woman named Kaitlin Cassidy who already kinda has an odd connection to Paris. Ready for a little behind the scenes dish? When not on a reality show, Cassidy works as a personal assistant and nanny for actress, singer and voiceover talent, E.G. Daily (who is also a B.F.F. of mine). But a few years back, Paris was E.G.'s W.E.E. (worst enemy ever) when E.G. discovered the raw video tape of what was to eventually become the infamous Paris sex tape, 1 Night in Paris. If you recall, she um, 'co-starred' on the tape with Rick Salomon who was E.G.s husband at the time of the filming! E.G. and Rick were no longer married when she actually found the tape, and today they are close friends (they have 2 daughters together). The very affable E.G. also managed to bury the hatchet with Paris (and not in her skull), when they were cast as mother and daughter in National Lampoon's Pledge This. So there you have it! A little side dish with your TV dinner!
