It looks like the day when Tori Spelling will be allowed to have her hoo ha waxed live, on National TV, while we attempt to sip our morning lattes, is getting closer. The LA Times is reporting ABC has tapped Jeff Lewis, the hilariously-quirky hot mess real estate mogul of Bravo's Flipping Out, to co-host Spelling's Will & Grace-esque talk show.
Spelling's show is being developed by ABC Media Productions, which produces projects that don't necessarily end up on the Mouse House lineup, according to the article. Hopefully this means Tor-Tor won't cost us a soap:
Finding a home in ABC's daytime lineup may be a challenge for both projects. The network currently has four shows in daytime -- soap operas "General Hospital," "All My Children" and "One Life to Live," and "The View." If ABC is going to launch another show, it will need to get a green light from its affiliates.
ABC Daytime has made a lot of noise of late about being committed to their soaps and considering they've managed to keep all three on the air during the worst economic crisis the country has seen since the Depression—while CBS is gutting soaps like fish on the bottom of a dingy—I am willing to take Mickey and Co. at their word. But don't worry, if I hear otherwise, you all will be the first to know!
