Kelly Osbourne will live in a brothel for her new MTV reality show

Just when you thought The Osbournes were off the telly forever, here comes one of them with a brand-new MTV reality show. Kelly Osbourne will soon “star in her own MTV show” that will “follow her attempts to become a method actress,” according to the Mirror.

As a method actor, she’ll experience life as her subjects, and apparently she’s going to play a prostitute, as the show will show her “living in a brothel,” among other things.

A source told the newspaper that “Kelly’s great on camera and she’s also deadly serious about acting. So when it was suggested she let cameras follow her into some really bizarre situations she was bang up for it. She’s a bit nervous now that filming’s about to start but she knows she’ll meet interesting people along the way–especially the prostitutes.”

And that, I think, should be the name for the new series: Especially the Prostitutes.

The Sing-Off loses its star

Ben Folds

NBC's super-fun December a capella singing competition The Sing-Off is returning, but without its star judge, Ben Folds, and only as a two-hour special. Those are really depressing changes for a series that proved itself to be a super-fun show when it returned last December.
