Seems Big Brother, the popular CBS reality show, is gearing up for another Celebrity Big Brother in 2009. And this time, producers are not settling for even your average B list celebrity. Not even your everyday D-Lister is going to be seen. (Let me needlessly interject here, that is NOT a reference to Kathy Griffin who is no longer a D-list celebrity at all. Ms. Griffin, who in my book and many others, is as popular as her A-List counterparts, has moved well beyond the boundaries of D-List fame.)
All this being said one rumored list A-List hopefulls includes Kathy Griffin as well as some of her most frequent targets: Whitney Houston and Martha Stewart. What an incredible show this will be if the network lands all three! Kathy Griffin, Whitney Houston, and Martha Stewart! Can you imagine the alliance? The late night, low-light camera angles, hushed conversations? Tales of life in the slammer, drugs, and plastic surgery. This show would be beyond a ratings hit.
I hope the producers are eyeing a Scientologist. There’s the proverbial cherry on this sundae of pop culture and life lessons in progress! While my excitement falls short on height challenged Cruise, I could totally see the rebound of Katie Holmes.
I imagine Houston’s Darth Vader, to Stewart’s Darth Sidious, and Griffin’s loveable Yoda, all brining Holmes over to our side… the human beings’ side, wrestling her from the grips of Scientology.
(All of this was to mention Whitney Houston is being wooed by Big Brother brass to appear in the 2009 Big Brother Celebrity.)
