Reality Tidbits – Tuesday Wrap Up

Australian Idol runner-up Anthony Callea has been recruited as the singing coach for the FOX8 reality series Ultimate School Musical. The show is about students from Essendon Keilor College in Melbourne putting on the production Fame. Ruby Rose is hosting the show, and Eddie Perfect is directing.

In Helen Razer’s new blog on City Search she reveals she is an American Idol fan. The article states that the show in Australia is getting 600,000 viewers per episode, which is excellant for a pay TV program.

My Kitchen Rules airs next week (Monday and Tuesday), and the pre-publicity is cranked up to full throttle. WA TV journalist went to the publicity launch on the Margaret River, and wrote about it on her blog. Unfortunately Manu Feidel was not there. She did say the food the contestants cooked was delicious.

Former Popstar Tiffani Wood’s divorce is taking an ugly turn if you can believe the Daily Telegraph.

David ‘The Hoff’ Hasselhoff is going to do a reality TV show with his daughters Taylor Ann, 19, and Hayley, 17. He will be attempting to launch their singing career. It could be an interesting show, as it is known that David has had some alcohol issues. No news on whether it will be picked up by a Network in Australia.

In other new programming news apparently Channel Seven will be filming PR firm Sweaty Betty for reality show looking at the owner vivacious Roxy Jacenko and her team. I am not sure if it is going to be semi-scripted. If you want to know what Roxy is like go to her blog at Sweaty Betty PR

For all you Manu fans, you need to tune in to the tennis (Aus Open) this week. Manu (along with a number of other Ch7 personalities) are being paraded in the front row at the Aus Open. The promotion of Ch7’s new shows is a little over the top but last night, they showed Manu several times during the Hewitt-Federer match! I’m sure he will be back for some of the semi-final and final games this week.

Did you see that one of the contestants from The Biggest Loser has been arrested and charged for having child porn on his computer? Apparently there is to be some incredibly swift editing to remove him from all scenes. He and his sister were eliminated in the second round. So as not to offend your readers, I will not use your blog to express my views on just what kind of heinous punishment should be inflicted on such ‘person’.
