News Roundup: Heidi Klum to Host Kiddie Reality Show, 'How to Train Your Dragon' Becomes Animated Series and More
According to Deadline Hollywood, the 'Project Runway' host has been tapped to front 'Seriously Funny Kids,' a new reality series similar to 'Kids Say the Darndest Things.' The project will see Klum interacting with youngsters, hopefully to humorous results.
"I have four children under the age of six, and to be honest, sometimes I enjoy them more than adults," Klum said in a statement. "They're uncensored, unpredictable and absolutely hilarious."

It was blackmail time this week on Desperate Housewives. Okay, that's nothing new but this week, it played an important part of more than one storyline. "A Distant Past" also offered the conclusion of the Stella storyline and started a new chapter in the Victor/Gaby/Carlos triangle.
(S04E02) I'm liking this season so far, but it feels different than seasons past. Plot points are layering themselves very deliberately and it seems like things are really setting up for some explosive episodes later in the season rather than one blow-out after another as we've seen in the past. It feels much more intricate. In last week's premiere, I was quick to chide Ryan Murphy and Co. for neglecting to mention the events of season three, but now that I've thought about it some more, it only seems right that Nip/Tuck attempts to reinvent itself at this stage in the game.
Rosie O'Donnell is an interesting choice since she has long been outspoken about hating plastic surgery. Show creator Ryan Murphy points out that O'Donnell is on the show because she 'gets it'. He says, "The show is about the idea that, for the most part, plastic surgery does not solve your problems." I'm not sure what date Rosie's episode airs but you can bet she'll be talking it up with the gals on The View.
