Miramax’s Harvey Weinstein said in a press release that “Bravo, Heidi and producer Desiree Gruber are the perfect partners to help find and identify the same untapped talent in the fashion world that ‘Project Greenlight’ has found in film.” To that, Gawker replies: “Oh yes. That went well.” … Meanwhile, Can You Be a Porn Star? “will track 28 women as they move, four at a time, into a Los Angeles home and endure a ‘gauntlet of interviews, photo shoots, challenges and surprises,'” E!
