Hollywood Reporter says Ryan Seacrest is producing a new reality show in which average citizens beg for cash from celebrities and moguls.
The eight-episode run will start Dec. 14 on E!
In “Bank of Hollywood,” a panel of notable names takes pitches from Americans in need of cash. The proposals range from a do-gooder raising money for charity to a grad student who can’t afford a ring to propose to his girlfriend. “The idea’s simple,” Seacrest said. “We are giving away tons of money to everyday people to alleviate the stress of today’s climate and have fun.”
Okay, these so-called celebrities are not exactly A List. The story lists folks like Candy Spelling (Tori’s mom), poker player Vanessa Rousso, Wilhelmina Models president Sean Patterson and Pussycat Dolls singer Melody Thornton. Yes, that’s a Pussycat Doll nobody remembers! (But I posted a gratuitous picture of her above left anyway!)
-Jason Castro proposed to his girlfriend over the weekend and she said yes. He started dating her last year but has known her since high school. Sorry, ladies!
-And here are some tweets from our Idols the past 24 hours. Chris Sligh was in a minor car accident and the cop response has been a little slow. Adam Lambert is in promo mode. And Diana DeGarmo? In admiration mode.
