The spring reality season is in full gear and Colorado’s monopolizing the airwaves.
Plus, reality TV’s about to go wild with the return of “Celebrity Apprentice” and the new “Taking on Tyson.”
‘Idol’ and Colorado
What are the chances that two Colorado singers would make “American Idol’s” top 24 finalists?
That’s right. Denver’s Julie Zorilla and CU-Boulder music student Casey Abrams made the cut.
There’s never a dull moment on “American Idol,” as last Wednesday had Abrams being rushed to the hospital with stomach pains. At press time, the singer was set to perform at last weekend’s “AI” taping. The talent contest can disqualify singers for being a no-show — even if you’re in the hospital!
There’s another Colorado reality connection hitting TV. Margie and Luke Adams from Colorado Springs are back for “The Amazing Race’s” all-star season.
“The Amazing Race” airs Sundays on CBS.
And ex-Denver Nuggets’ Carmelo Anthony and his fiancée La La Vazquez made reality news last week.
The couple’s filming its move from Denver to NYC, because Anthony’s now playing for the New York Knicks. The new reality show’s called “La La’s Full Court” and its set to run on VH1.
Doesn’t this guy make enough cash from his basketball gig?
Things are getting pretty crazy in the world, so the timing’s perfect to bring out “Celebrity Apprentice’s” quirky new crew.
Host Donald Trump and NYC are bracing for Gary Busey, Lisa Rinna, La Toya Jackson, David Cassidy, Star Jones, Mark McGrath, Lil Jon, Meatloaf, Dionne Warwick and Richard Hatch to take a bite out of the Big Apple — and each other.
Sunday’s debut features the cast of crazies duking it out in a pizza-selling contest. This is going to be one spicy showdown.
Spoiler alert: Street buzz says the celeb’s first boardroom of the season is a real lollapalooza.
Catch “Celebrity Apprentice” Sunday on NBC.
Mike Tyson’s pigeons
Reality TV’s going to the birds. Just ask Mike Tyson.
Sunday, the pro boxer debuts his Animal Planet show, “Taking on Tyson” — and reality TV may never be the same.
These days, Tyson’s into the world of competitive pigeon racing. That’s why he developed a show based on the bizarre underground sport.
Someone call the ASPCA.
