Last night, Audrina Patridge was voted off of “Dancing with the Stars” even though she got the second-highest score from the judges. Meanwhile, Bristol Palin’s arhythmic clubfooted swaying didn’t even land her in the bottom two. Why? Because the tubby Midwestern housewives who vote for “DWTS” are threatened by Audrina but not by Bristol. Thanks, America. Keep up the great work.
But don’t worry, we WILL see Audrina’s abs on television again. As was previously reported, Mark Burnett has been shopping a reality project for her, and Deadline says that VH1 is close to picking it up.
The still untitled project, whose order is expected to be in the 8-10 episode range, will document Patridge’s life with her family as she tries to navigate the world of fame and celebrity in Hollywood…
Patridge teamed with Burnett to develop a new reality series built around her in the spring of 2009. MTV ordered a pilot for the project, The Audrina Show, which was to chronicle her daily life. While it ultimately didn’t go to series, sister channel VH1 pursued Patridge and Burnett for a retooled version of the project and to better fit into its brand and ordered it to series.
Let’s be honest here: Audrina’s show didn’t get picked up before because Audrina isn’t very interesting. A body that wet dreams are made of, sure, but duller than C-SPAN. That’s why I want VH1’s retooling of the show to be called “The Audrina Patridge Silent Neck-Down Shower Hour.”
