Legally Blonde to become Grease 2?

Michael Riedel reports:

The producers of "Legally Blonde" are so desperate to keep their show alive, they're prostituting Elle Wood to MTV.

The cable network, which broadcast "Legally Blonde" last year, will conduct a search for an unknown actress to play Elle when the accomplished Laura Bell Bundy leaves the show later this year.

[...]

MTV's passing out flyers on college campuses all over town, urging young women to audition. The flyer says: "No theatrical experience necessary."

That's right, this casting-by-reality-show ordeal will be on MTV.

Let's at least hope this one will be better produced, then.

(Also in Riedel today...his ongoing feud with Mel Brooks.)
