If Mike Tyson’s show about pigeons (“Taking on Tyson”) wasn’t enough for you, don’t worry, because Animal Planet has added another series to the “fading celebrities with birds” genre. It’s called “Heidi Fleiss: Prostitutes to Parrots,” and the show will be about the former Hollywood Madam’s dark art of turning hookers into macaws. No, not really.
“With her home covered in bird poop and monthly bills for the birds soaring into the thousands, the former madam must balance her need to tend to the birds at home with the necessity of leaving them to earn a living outside of it. With multiple businesses and jobs to focus on, Fleiss spends her days shuttling from the laundromat she owns, to the doggie daycare she is set to open. But, as the anxiety at being away from her birds increases, and the pressure to hire a staff to care for them rises, will the stress of life drive her back to drugs?” [EW]
Ooohhhh, I hope so!
Speaking of drugs, Heidi’s love of parrots — and love of meth — was documented in her appearance on “Celebrity Rehab,” where she admitted to Dr. Drew that she smoked meth just before coming to the show. Man, what a life she’s led. Hookers and parrots and prison and meth and assaulted by Tom Sizemore. That’s spicy livin’. I can’t say that I’ll ever like Heidi Fleiss, but she’s certainly not dull.
