Dog the Bounty Hunter vs. Kathie Lee Gifford: The strange bedfellows of NBC's Celebrity Family Feud revival

11

June

Kathielee1_2 Dog2  So, if Kathie Lee took on Dog the Bounty Hunter, who might survive? Could Vivica A. Fox handle the bodacious Monique? And would Rayven Symone mop the floor with Wayne Newton?

I can't imagine anyone who hasn't imbibed some serious hallucinogens even considering these questions. Which makes it all the more interesting to note these matchups -- and more oddball combinations-- as the superstar teams competing on NBC's Celebrity Family Feud July 1.

Today show weatherdude Al Roker takes the lessons learned mediating the icy off-camera silences between Matt Lauer and Katie Couric and puts them to work hosting the show, which will pit oddball D-list celebrities who need the publicity against other over-Botoxed creatures in hopes of landing a VH1 series or a spot on Dancing With the Stars.
