Perez Hilton coming to VH1

perez hiltonGood news for fans of celebrity gossip dished out by a gay man with a love for MS Paint: popular online muckraker Perez Hilton is coming to VH1 as the host of What Perez Says, a series of one-hour specials that Hilton himself is describing as "like PerezHilton.com come to life, but even juicier." The new series debuts in September.

I suppose it's somewhat ironic that Perez is becoming part of the celebrity world he so gleefully attacks on his blog. Of course, in this age when almost everyone is a celebrity in some form or another, it's not too surprising.

At this point I guess we can just speculate what the new series will be like. I'd like to see video footage of celebrities overlayed with Hilton's crude MS Paint graffiti while he gives a play by play like John Madden.

More seriously, though, as popular as Hilton is online, are people really clamoring for more celebrity gossip on television? Sadly, the answer is probably yes, considering the media frenzy surrounding Paris Hilton's jail sentence. Hate him or loathe him, Perez has found his calling, and a lot of people like what he's dishing out.

Thanks to my pal Wild Bill for the tip.

Aw, HELL no. The less we hear from this cretin, the better. His little bumper bits on the CW were way more than enough.

I believe that Perez defaces the pictures he puts on his site to get around having to pay for them by saying the defacing them is a political/social comentary based on free speech & not the wholesale use of someone else's work. (x10 or whatever paparazzi he got the photos from).

Don't know if that arguement flies in court, because I think he's been sued several times over it.
