Heidi Montag, Sanjaya Malakar head up new reality show
Your June just got booked. Because NBC is planning to air its newest celebreality showcase, I’m a Celebrity ... Get Me Out of Here! at 8 p.m. four nights a week, for four weeks, starting June 1. You may remember us mentioning this show because former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich had been asking a judge if he could go to Costa Rica to be on it (he can't).
But wait’ll you hear the cast: Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt, Janice Dickinson, Sanjaya Malakar, Stephen Baldwin, former NBA player John Salley and wrestling diva Torrie Wilson. NBC plans to announce three more stars this week; Geraldo Rivera and Duane “Dog” Chapman have been rumored as members, and while Blagojevich was barred from joining the cast, he might still be allowed to participate in some other way, according to E! News.
The show — not that it matters — is a remake of a British series wherein celebs are plunked into the jungle and made to perform stupid stunts. In other words, it’s like Survivor, only the stars have less talent.
