Now that OJ Simpson has officially got a two-hour infomercial on Fox for his new book, Ha Ha, I Killed Them and You Can’t Do Anything About It, we really can’t fake surprise over the next reprobate, sociopath or ear-biting convicted rapist who’s looking for a little haven from reality with a reality show of his or her own. Now it’s Mike Tyson who wants one, having caught this particular bug after a cameo on Being Bobby Brown. He’s shopping a series with his plus-size daughter, Mikey, who’s designing a clothing line for the kirstiealleysized, and Mikey’s BFF (and Don King’s granddaughter), Nathalie.
Psycho Mike also has a connection of sorts to another proposed reality show with a potentially criminal element.This one would be the latest seamy spinoff from the Flavor Flav franchise. Brigitte Nielsen, who swapped spit and other fluids with the Viking-helmeted love machine in two VH1 series, doesn’t have much to show for it. So now she wants to open a male-escort service, videotape the goings and comings and call the show Stud Farm.
Nielsen is pitching the series to Oxygen, Fox, VH1 and Bravo. She says the clients will be lonely divorcÃ©es, widows and gay men. Which explains Bravo.
Her manager took pains to insist Brigitte won’t be breaking the law, like Heidi Fleiss did. Heidi, by the way has been getting press the past year by hawking her plans for a male bordello in Nevada called “Heidi’s Stud Farm.” Fleiss (a cousin of reality show mogul and The Bachelor producer Mike Fleiss) has said she wants Tyson to be one of her prostitutes– her “big stallion.”
And speaking of reality shows and boxers intent on naming their children after themselves, maybe you heard that TV Land will soon be shooting a pilot for Family Foreman, featuring former heavyweight champ George Foreman and his ten kids– including five sons named George.
