Celebrity Gossip Heard All Over The Web

Jenny McCarthy and Donnie Wahlberg Snag Reality Show

Is television ready for Jenny McCarthy and Donnie Wahlberg together? We’re going to have to be, because the couple just snagged a reality show!

The newlyweds will appear in an unscripted series, titled Donnie Loves Jenny, as a part of a 10-episode reality show deal with A&E (which is also network to Wahlburgers, a show about Donnie’s family and their restaurant). The show will follow them in their new journey as husband and wife–the good, the bad, and the downright ugly.

Jenny and Donnie released a statement saying:

“Not only have we found a new home together, we have found the perfect place for our exciting new projects to live with A&E Network. We’re so excited about this deal and look forward to a long and successful relationship creating entertaining and provocative unscripted programming with our partners at A&E. Our feeling is, who better to make our first show for the network about than about us? We love working together and with our crazy schedules this gives us the chance to both work and play together.”

The two will serve as co-producers, and their premiere episode features scenes from their August wedding at the Hotel Baker near Chicago!

Good for them! I might just have to tune in!

Bates Motel Has Found Its Norman

Remember when Hollywood used to come up with completely original ideas, turn them into television shows or feature films and we would be thrilled, inspired, and ready for the next season or sequel?

Me either.

And because Hollywood no longer seems able to come up with a completely original idea anymore, they’ve gone back into the vaults and concocted a new take on Psycho. A&E’s upcoming series Bates Motel is being described as a prequel to the Alfred Hitchcock classic Psycho. Freddie Highmore, who starred alongside Johnny Depp in Charlie and The Chocolate Factory, is set to star in the series as a young Norman Bates. Playing opposite Highmore will be Vera Farmiga as Norman’s mother. The show will further delve into the dark and twisted relationship between Norman and his mother. The series will be the first American project for Freddie Highmore, who was also the star of The Spiderwick Chronicles.

This may not be a completely original idea, but this could potentially be an interesting re-telling of the story. Everyone knows Norman Bates was seriously throwed off in the game and I can’t wait until they have Freddie in drag and stealing his mama’s pantyhose. If that’s not in at least a few episodes, I will not be sold!
