Is a Star Jones and Rosie O’Donnell reality show coming?

i have a dream 110609
In news that I really hope is made up, In Touch is reporting that much-derided ex View hosts Rosie O’Donnel and Star Jones are teaming up for their own reality show. If this is true, let’s hope it never gets picked up:

It looks like former enemies Star Jones and Rosie O’Donnell have more in common than their mutual disdain for Barbara Walters! The two former co-hosts of The View, who feuded after Rosie criticized Star in 2006 for not disclosing her gastric-bypass surgery, have made amends and are planning a reality show together. “They get along quite well and have a wicked sense of humor when they’re together. Everyone keeps telling them they need to capture it on camera and now they’ve decided to,” a TV insider says. “They know people will tune in to see them.” Although reps for both stars deny the story, the show will combine elements of Oprah and Gayle King’s cross-country trip with Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie’s The Simple Life trek. “They want to show their different personalities as they cope with real-life situations and determine if their new friendship can stand the stress of it all,” says the insider. “They’re hoping to be the new Lucy and Ethel of reality TV.”

Ah reality TV, the deceptive refuge for formerly tepid celebrities who have no other route to continued fame or cash. Maybe the key part of that story is that “reps for both stars deny” that Rosie and Star have anything in the works. I really dislike both of these women, but I could see how this type of show might get greenlighted. No one likes Octomom, either, and everyone wanted to see inside her warped world.

One of Rosie O’Donnell’s last public ventures involved staging a terrible variety show last Thanksgiving that was incredibly boring and tanked in the ratings. Star Jones’ had a talk show on CourtTV that ended after one year in early 2008. These two deserve each other, but no one else deserves to be subjected to their high levels of narcissism and nastiness.
