A&E Showcases Celebrity Junk

Posted by Wendy Michaels Categories: Reality, Cable, Internet,

Illeana DouglasFinally… there’s a show that promises to showcase celebrity junk! Where do I sign up? When it comes to celebrities, I must know everything—so why not see their junk too? is the network to pull it off, with their upcoming series , created and hosted by . Do celebs really have garage sales? Well, I can recall Whitney Houston sold a bunch of her junk and didn’t too? Douglas will uncover the best celeb garage sales in this unscripted pilot—well, at least her celeb friends anyway, which in the pilot is . Eh, maybe not such an interesting star for the pilot episode, but the proceeds of the garage sale (and in his case he raised $5,000) goes to charity. According to Douglas, “I’ve always been a garage sale fanatic, but the fun of a celebrity garage sale is that their throwaways become someone else’s collectables—like an to the stars.” I’ve always thought Illeana Douglas was okay, but her short web series Illeanarama was a riot.

Will Lindsay Lohan Appear on ‘Ugly Betty’?

Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: Comedy, Prime Time, ABC, Gossip, Rumors,

DescriptionAlthough she’s only been in America for a few months, has already managed to start a new celebrity trend:  Ugly Betty appearances.  After the Spice Girl’s stint on tonight’s show, fans can expect to see a cameo from this Dec. 13th.  Now it’s being rumored Miss may be soon guesting on three episodes as well.

While I really wouldn’t want a Lohan appearance to overshadow a great show, I would be willing to overlook my feelings for her in this once instance.  Assuming the TV Guide buzz is true, Lindsay may be cast as a former high school classmate of Betty’s.  She would also be the manager of a fast-food restaurant.

Now if that doesn’t scream Lindsay…..well, then it screams K-Fed.  Either way, I’d be watching.
