Trump producing Lady or a Tramp for FOX

The future of The Apprentice may be unclear, but Donald Trump is already working on developing a new reality series, one that he may appear on.

Lady or a Tramp is “a reality-competition series in which girls in love with the party life will be sent to a charm school where they will receive a stern course on debutante manners,” Variety reports. “Trump will exec produce the show and possibly come on air to evaluate contestants’ progress.”

The show is presenting searching for “younger women who are 18-30, love to party and full of attitude,” and who are “rude and crude party girls.” Variety says it “could be on the air as early as midseason,” assuming it gets picked up by the network.

The series is a version of the UK’s Ladette to Lady, and I see why they changed the name, but why not Lady or a Trump? Now that’d be a series.

Eaten Alive

Discovery Channel’s happy family holiday special Eaten Alive aired Sunday, rewarding viewers for their two full hours of viewing by ensuring that they spent quality time in the company of others instead of wasting that time doing something else that might not have been as satisfying, such as buying things that have labels which accurately reflect their contents.
