Reality Tidbits

Channel Nine Axing More Reality TV Shows.

Unfortunately there has been no announcement on whether Channel 9 will be axing the excruciatingly bad My Kid is A Star. However the rumour is they are going to pull the plug on Million Dollar Salon.

This was to be a reality tv series where hairdressers (can you still call them that these days or are they hair designers/stylist) were to compete to win their own salon.

Apparently after months of filming auditions it has been decided that there was not enough talent for the production to go ahead. They don't elaborate whether this deficiency was with the contestants or the judges Renya Xydis and Joh Bailey.

Big Brother news.
It is not surprising that with less then two weeks to go the Big Brother publicity machine has started to be cranked up. Kyle Sandilands tried a few weeks ago to gain some publicity by bad mouthing Rove after an interview.

Apparently the new series which starts April 28 has been given much needed revamp. Along with new hosts Kyle and Jackie the BB house has had an overhaul. they will be missing the farmyard. Also the weekly grocery list and the punishment room has been given the chop.

Aussie American Idol Reject has been offered to do a duet with Dolly Parton.
Michael Johns who was cast off American Idol last week, supposedly a surprise elimination has been contacted by Dolly Parton who would like to do a duet with him. I don't know how that will fit in with his Blues/soul/rock persona but hell it is Dolly.

Apparently he has also been offered some record contracts.

Other post idol frivolity has been partying with Ashton Kutcher, Cameron Diaz, and Demi Moore in New York.
