Celebrity Updates: Ian and Harry—REJECTS!

Frankly, I didn’t even know he was a serious contender. (Actually, I didn’t even know he was in the running at all.) But, according to former “Beverly Hills, 90210” star Ian Ziering, he was stunned to hear Drew Carey beat him out for “The Price Is Right” gig. “I guess I was a little disappointed,” Ziering, recently told reporters. “I was really kind of hoping that would happen.

BUT (and this is a big BUT) if you want to bid on the legendary game show host’s microphone you only have to the end of Barker’s repeat broadcast to do so.

The Reality Show Divorce Curse Continues

Okay, if you are a celebrity, just say “no” to a reality series. Seriously – Posh Spice, are you listening? Yet another celebrity couple who let the television camera into their lives is divorcing. “Partridge Family” kid Danny Bonaduce (the redheaded precocious one) and his wife Gretchen have announced they are filing for divorce.
