Donald Trump is looking for “rude and crude party girls”– “younger women who are 18-30, love to party and full of attitude”–not for a new wife, but a new competition reality series he’s got in development at Fox. Hot off headlines about Lindsay Lohan’s rehab, Paris Hilton’s jail term and Britney Spears’ cottage cheese ass, Lady or a Tramp would take “party girls” to charm school.
What an original idea! Not! The crassly-titled show is simply another copy of a British series, in this case Ladette to Ladette, in which party girls are sent to a charm school called Eggleston Hall. The producers of the US version are so bereft of original ideas that they’re even thinking of sending the contestants to the same school.If the show’s picked up–and there’s a pretty good chance it will–it could be on air by midseason.
Instead of being “fired,” one contestant is “expelled” in each episode. Trump would get an executive producer credit and probably appear on air to evaluate the women’s progress.
Meanwhile, the future of his The Apprentice is still hanging at NBC, though it hasn’t been picked up for next season and Trump himself combed over the embarrassment by sating “you can’t fire me, I quit.”
