E! planning series about 'Broken Dreams'
Here's a list of the stars to be featured. Which one of these things is not like the others?
- Chris Penn, deceased brother of Sean Penn;
- Krissy Taylor, deceased sister of model Niki Taylor;
- Mitch Hedberg, deceased comedian;
- Leif Garrett, former teen idol and current joke;
- Lauryn Hill, singer who... WTF?
I suppose former Fugees singer Lauryn Hill is included on the list for her meltdown on MTV2 Unplugged in 2002 where she told the audience she was "crazy and deranged". Lauryn won a ton of Grammys in 1998 and then sort-of freaked out about her fame. She got the hell away from the record industry, which she said was smothering her. It'll be interesting to see if E! categorizes her story as a "fallen star", because I think she's happy with the choices she has made.
The series debuts January 22 at 10:30 pm.
